Designing a House

Alright y'all, it's finally time to dig into the plans for the new house! YAY! So this post is going to be a bit of back story on the house, and in the next few posts I'll share our inspiration pics and floor plan. And bear with me because it's kinda all over the place (I'm trying to keep it somewhat short and sweet). Here we go.... We … [Read more...]

Planked Walls and Upholstered Headboards (master bedroom progress)

Well, the master bedroom is slowly coming along, looking better and better each month! I'm trying to work on it a little at a time and not stress, since I realize we may never fully finish it before we sell our house. I'm okay with that, and in the meantime I'm really enjoying having a master bedroom that doesn't make me cringe. Anyway, this … [Read more...]

How we’ve been spending our weekends (a land update)

When I first introduced y'all to the property we are building our house on it was the middle of winter and nothing was green. Well, I'm happy to say that is no longer the case! (these were taken before all the crazy flooding here in Texas) The creek is gorgeous. There are SO MANY ferns that you can't even get to the water, and the … [Read more...]

An update on Judah and life with three kids

I think it's high time for a baby update. I can sense that y'all want one, I can feel everyone thinking "curtains, saloon doors, lampshades, me the baby!" Okay, FINE. If y'all are going to force me to show pictures of my adorable new son, then I guess I will. Just don't expect me to like it. Okay, let's just get all the … [Read more...]

DIY lampshade with a hidden design (and a giveaway!)

*This post is sponsored by Cutting Edge Stencils* A few months ago I received an e-mail from a woman name Kiri who had recently launched her own company.  It's called i like that lamp, and she sells lampshade kits where you order the exact size you need and use your own fabric to customize it. I thought it was a great idea for a company...not that … [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...]

“This is my beloved and this is my friend” Pallet Sign

Today I have a simple tutorial for y'all, the pallet sign that was in my master bedroom makeover last week. First thing you will need is a pallet, obviously. I know pallet projects have been all the rage lately, but I haven't ever really used them. Then one day Adam came across a stack of them behind his work and came home with these … [Read more...]

Quick and Easy Master Bedroom Makeover

Many of you know that I'm part of the Better Homes and Gardens Live Better Network, and every other month I am challenged to use BHG products in a different way. Well this last month has been pretty busy for us, and the last thing on my mind was blog deadlines. So a few weeks ago (when I was about a week overdue) I finally remembered to look up the … [Read more...]

Nightstand makeover in six easy steps!

Step one - buy a set nightstands off of Craigslist for $30. Use them for about two years without ever getting around to giving them the intended makeover. Step two - One day, when you're 41.5 weeks pregnant with your third child, decide you are tired of just sitting around waiting to have a baby. Drag nightstands out to front porch for … [Read more...]

Party of Five

Well, I think I've kept y'all waiting long enough. Who wants to hear about the new addition? (insert drumroll) It's a.... BOY! Allow me to introduce my newest little man, Judah. He arrived on Wednesday, March 18th at 11:27 am. Not by choice though, he had to be forced out. Truth be told, if it was up to me I would have … [Read more...]

Ten home improvement projects I would do again

Well, I didn't really expect to be sitting around my house writing posts this week, but alas, here I am...41 weeks pregnant. According to the doctor there are no signs that I will go into labor in the next week, so he scheduled me for an induction on Wednesday if nothing happens before then. I'm praying it doesn't come to that though, because … [Read more...]

Ten home improvement projects I won’t be repeating

So today is my official due date. This baby is fully cooked, I'm horribly uncomfortable, and the doctor said at my appointment on Tuesday that it doesn't look like this kid is planning to come anytime soon. Darn my comfortable uterus! I was really hoping to have this kid a few days before the due date (like my last pregnancy), but it looks like … [Read more...]

Top Ten Must-Haves for the Next House

We're nearing the final stages of designing our new house (almost to the blueprints stage!) and I've spent the last couple months reflecting on this house, thinking about what we've messed up, what we love, and what we would change. I have a couple of posts coming up relating to all that, and today is the first. My list is actually much, MUCH … [Read more...]

Rustic Glam Wall Clock

For years now Adam and I have had this ridiculous bedtime routine. We put the kids to bed, and after that we pretty much just veg on the couch, snack, talk, and binge watching whatever we are currently binge watching on Netflix. Then comes that time where it's starting to get late, and Adam asks me "what time is it?" He's super responsible at … [Read more...]

We bought land!

Back in October I wrote a post about how we have been land hunting. Our current house was never intended to be our forever home, it was always a place we planned to live in for five or six years, fix up (and make all our DIY mistakes on, if that's possible), sell, and move on. We've owned this house for almost seven years now, and we are ready for … [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...]

Adam’s Accident + 36 Week Pregnancy Update

Have you ever heard the saying "If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans"? Well I had plans. I have about a month left till this baby is due and I've been trying to finish up the guest room, boy's room, and baby prep in the next month so that I can relax with my newborn and not have a big to-do list. I had two posts a week (a lot for … [Read more...]
