Gold Stenciled Table

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a furniture makeover on the blog, even though redoing furniture is one of my favorite things. We’ve been so busy building our house for the last year that I’ve barely posted about anything else or done any projects just because I enjoy them. So this table...I actually finished it about six months ago, but with … [Read more...]



Gold Leaf Stencil Art and Honest House Photos

*Thank you to Cutting Edge Stencils for sponsoring this post.* Things have been so busy with the new house that I haven’t done any fun craft projects lately. And even though making super quick and stressful decisions about $10,000 expenses is crazy fun, I kinda miss the quick and easy projects that provide instant gratification. I’ve been itching … [Read more...]



Kicking off Christmas

I have a confession to make. I haven't started decorating for Christmas yet. I haven't even thought about getting the boxes out of storage. We haven't been listing to Christmas music. I haven't baked a single thing. Gifts? What gifts? Now I've always been strictly in the "no Christmas before Thanksgiving" camp, and this year I've done a … [Read more...]



Round Inlay Table…err, Wall Medallion

Every night for the last two weeks I've told myself that I would write about this table, and every night one of three things happened instead - Judah cried all night. He just turned four months, but I swear that boy is teething. I instead spent hours online researching stuff for the new house. The last few nights have been all about … [Read more...]



Introducing Paint-A-Pillow + A Giveaway

Many of you know that Cutting Edge Stencils is a sponsor of Domestic Imperfection. It all started when I won one of their stencils in a giveaway and used it to create the paisley stenciled table, which became the project that got my blog off the ground. I have worked with Cutting Edge ever since (almost three years!), they are a fantastic company … [Read more...]



Rustic Christmas Art

It's hard to believe that Christmas is only a few weeks away...where did time go? If it wasn't getting dark crazy early and making me feel like I'm cooking dinner at midnight I almost wouldn't believe it. Today I have a simple Christmas craft to share with you. It's the only one I have planned for the year because I'm not one of those organized … [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...]



Stenciled Farmhouse Table + Country Living Magazine

Are any of y'all familiar with a little magazine called Country Living? Yeah, I thought so...in this crowd that's like asking a toddler if he's heard of something called "blocks". So a few months ago I received an e-mail from Country Living asking if I'd be interested in working with them and Minwax on a project for the magazine. Now most of the … [Read more...]



Stenciling a Concrete Floor

My friend Abby has lived in a tiny old farmhouse for a while, and recently her and her husband renovated and expanded it to be their forever home. Their new house is fantastic...it's roomy and open without being huge. Plus it's on 13 acres...so it's basically my dream house.  I should really do a house tour of the whole thing, actually. One day, … [Read more...]
