State of the House, 2017 – Bedrooms, Bathrooms and Loft

Alright, time for the final part of the 2017 house tour! I’ve already posted about the exterior, and the main living areas, so keep reading to see the bedrooms, bathrooms and the loft. Let’s start with the loft... There it is, truth...I bet you weren’t expecting to see a giant mess right off the bat were you? The loft is the only thing … [Read more...]



The Boy’s Room – Then, Now, and Future Plans

So today let’s talk about the boy's room.   The room is 12 x 15 and will be shared by my older two boys. If you regularly read the blog than you’ve seen pictures of it while under construction...but here they are again (mostly to remind me that we’ve already come a long way and aren't just beginning...because it’s true, but I … [Read more...]



How (not) to make saloon doors

Sometimes DIY projects around here turn out great. Sometimes they are giant failures. And sometimes they look great and are a failure at the same time. This is one of those projects. About five years ago I removed the closet door from my boy's room. Most people love doors on closets because you can hide the mess... I like closets not … [Read more...]



Cowboy bedding and how to make lined curtains

Okay, sorry for the awkward long break...lots of things going on here at Casa Domestic Imperfection! Exciting news...we are we are almost finished finalizing plans for the new house and will be breaking ground much sooner than we thought. Yay! (and holy stressful!). I can't wait to talk about all of it, but first let me get out these last three … [Read more...]



Cowboy Bedroom REVEAL!

Today's a big day y'all, a big big day. Why? Because I finished the boy's room! This room makeover has been dragging on for many, many years. It's kinda embarrassing how long it has taken, but I have to remember that this isn't a TV show where room makeover take 30 minutes, or some awesome professional blog where things get done in a timely … [Read more...]



Kids Room Toy Shelf (an organized masterpiece)

Before I dive into all the DIY goodness I just wanted to say  thank you for all the love and support on my last post about Adam's accident. He is doing well, a little better every day. He is up and around the house now, and even getting out a bit. We don't do much...mostly just walk around slowly, taking turns moaning about how much moving hurts … [Read more...]



Cowboy bedding and the opposite of buyer’s remorse

Some things in life should be really simple. Deciding what to make for dinner, Christmas shopping, and buying bedding should all be things that you just decide on without taking up too much time or energy. Something like buying bedding, for example, should not require an entire blog post. But alas, here we are...I'm up at midnight writing one and … [Read more...]



Upcycled Giant Chalkboard

A couple of years ago I made a chalkboard for my kitchen/dining room area. I use it every single day for my household to-do list. It's probably one of the things in my house I use most (that's not an appliance, computer, or sink). Recently the boys have taken an interest in it, and each day they drag their little step stool over to the … [Read more...]



The bunk beds that we didn’t build

Is there anything more satisfying than crossing a big item off your to-do list? Well, yes, there is...but crossing things off my to-do list is pretty high on my list of things I love. Building bunk beds has been on our to-do list for a really long time. That's not the bad part though, the bad part is that I made the mistake of telling the boys … [Read more...]



Nursery Sign Semi Success

So the saga of the nursery sign for my nephew continues.  Two weeks ago I posted about my first attempt at a name sign for baby Chandler, and I ended up with a sign that was wasn't bad, but also wasn't my favorite. And then there was the fact that I couldn't bring myself to give it to my SIL because it was over eight feet long and completely … [Read more...]



Nursery Sign Semi Fail

I mentioned in a previous post that my sister-in-law recently had a baby, little Chandler. Less than two years ago his older sister was born, and I made her this name sign out of an old section of fence and lots and lots of buttons. (tutorial here) I can't very well make Mallory a sign and not Chandler, so I did a little brainstorming … [Read more...]



How to Make Book Slings

 If this sounds oddly familiar to you, it's because I've already done (and blogged about) this project. I made my first set of book slings a few years ago while pregnant with boy #2, but I'm going to throw it out there again since 98% of my current readers probably haven't seen that post. Plus these slings have been really great... I mean, we're … [Read more...]



Planks and trim in the soon-to-be cowboy room

Last January (as in over a year ago) I posted my plans for remodeling the boys incredibly boring nursery and turning it into a cowboy themed room for them. Adam and I got started right away by ripping out the carpet, paper bagging the floor, and planking about a quarter of the wall...then we got distracted with some shiny new project and forgot all … [Read more...]



The Most Embarrassing Post I’ve Ever Written

Three years ago today I started Domestic Imperfection. For the first two blogiversaries I put together giveaways as a thank you to my readers for all the support. This year I didn't plan anything though, mostly because it's a whole lot of work and only one or two people win things. So instead I'm going to do something better...I'm going to … [Read more...]



Bright & Rustic Button Sign

Last year I made something that I never blogged about. Saying I 'made something' is a really bad description though, what I mean is that I made something that is pretty stinking awesome and one of my favorite projects ever. And then I gave it away before taking pictures of it. Like a giant dork. So what is it? It's a huge button monogram for my … [Read more...]



Paper Bag Floors – A Tutorial

Those of you that are looking for an affordable, attractive, totally doable flooring solution have come to the right place! My husband and I are starting the remodel of our boys room, and I was feeling creative and wanted to try paper flooring. I had seen it before and thought it looked great...but mostly I liked the idea because it was so cost … [Read more...]



My Plans for The Boys Room

One of my "loose goals" for this year is to give my boys room a complete makeover. I worked on it a little when I was pregnant with Levi, but I just did a few things (book slings and nursery chair) and now I want to completely overhaul it. A few days ago I took y'all window shopping with me to Kirklands and today I'm doing the second part of that … [Read more...]



Custom Name Growth Charts

I'm back, and I actually finished a project! Did you think I was going to leave you hanging till after Christmas? I thought about it... December has been a hard month so far, it feels like one or both of the kids has been sick the whole month. Just this morning Elijah threw up twice..once in my bed and once all over my lap/the couch. It's just a … [Read more...]



My Readers Are Awesome – A Crib Solution

In yesterdays post I left you to choose between these two awkward crib set-ups...Admittedly, neither one worked and the whole room felt weird.But then, you awesome people swooped in with your genius suggestions and saved the day! I don't know why I hadn't though of these, I blame it on pregnancy brain ;) In my head the reading chair was stuck where … [Read more...]



The Never Ending Nursery Project…

It's been awhile since I've updated y'all on the nursery progress. I don't know why this project is taking me so long, I'm just never in the mood to work on it. Actually I know exactly why...and no, it's not cause I'm 39 weeks and 4 days pregnant - though that would be a good excuse. It's because it's not my favorite room. Not that I'm hating it, … [Read more...]
