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

  1. Stone walls I love stone walls. I actually just love natural rustic elements, all of them. I recently installed a stone wall (an airstone wall) in the guest room and think it looks pretty darn great. In the next house we won't be doing faux stone, I'm hoping we can afford to put up a limestone accent wall in the main part of … [Read more...]

Ten home improvement projects I won’t be repeating

  1. Raw mdf trim Adam and I have replaced all the trim in our house (except the master bedroom, but we'll get there) and have learned a lot. We started out in the living room and chose 6 inch raw MDF that we routed ourselves (because money was our biggest concern). We ended up doing this in all the main areas of the house so that … [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...]



Mason Jar Pendant Light

  You know those projects that should be really easy...the ones that should take you less than an hour but end up being a complete time suck and turn out NOTHING like you had planned? Yeah, me neither. Never happens. Except like every fourth project or so. I've been planning to hang pendants in the guest room instead of doing … [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...]



DIY Gold Sunburst Mirror

Ever since I started remodeling the guest room I've known exactly what I wanted to put above the bed....a wooden pallet sign with a song verse on it. More specifically, the beautiful and terrifying chorus from Oceans by Hillsong ... Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders Let me walk upon the waters Wherever You would call me Take me … [Read more...]



The Top Ten Projects of 2014

Happy 2015...I hope everyone had a great holiday break and is ready for the new year! Ours was great, though we did have to skip some events and stay home because of sickness. Every year y'all, every year, like clockwork, we get sick at Christmas. This year it wasn't even sickness (though it might have been a combo), it was cedar fever. If you live … [Read more...]

I'm not even going to mess around with a proper intro paragraph in this post, let's just get to the good stuff. Behold... Before - After - I love it SO MUCH. Now that pictures are out of the way, let's get to the story. Since deciding to re-do the guest room I knew I wanted something interesting on the wall behind the … [Read more...]



Sharpie mugs, $20 Christmas gifts, and the elephant in the room

*This post was sponsored by the BHG Live Better Network. All opinions are 100% my own. If you've ever used pinterest then chances are you've seen these "sharpie mugs". The idea is that you buy a cheap plain mug, personalize it with a sharpie, and voila! Crazy easy personalized coffee cups. Now, I've been DIYing for a while now and I can tell you … [Read more...]



My Painted Shower – One Year Later

Last October I did something crazy....I painted my shower. The post I wrote about the process has become one of my most popular, probably because (much like my paper bag flooring) it's just an unusual concept. Anyway, since it's been over a year I figured its high time for an update. After all, whats the point of posting crazy tutorials if I'm not … [Read more...]
