How to Paint a Plaid Wall

How to Paint a Plaid Wall

Did you see my One Room Challenge Makeover?  The focal point of the room was the plaid wall I painted as an ode to my husband.  (He wasn’t impressed.) Several people commented on Instagram that it looked like a lot of work.  And it was a lot of work!  It definitely took longer than had I just painted the wall blue.  But it wasn’t as bad as you would expect.  It’s a small wall and the window takes up a…

DIY Medallion Makeover

DIY Medallion Makeover

I’m so excited to share a little DIY makeover that I did a few months ago! Last summer I picked up two of these faux medallions at Hobby Lobby for 90% off!  I’m guessing they were 90% off because of the horrible color.  I can’t imagine “mustard” working its way into any of the rooms of my home.  But I liked the design (and I loved the price)! Here’s a look at the “before” version straight from the store. ….

Polka Dot Walls and Fulfilled Dreams

Polka Dot Walls and Fulfilled Dreams

Picture it.  Cicely.  1942.  #goldengirlhumor But really.  Picture it.  Chapel Hill.  1999.  Sophomore year of college.  I take a break from reading my usual study materials (aka Bridal Magazines) and pick up a Home magazine.  I notice a lovely polka-dotted laundry room and I am obsessed with a polka dotted laundry rooms from that moment on. I hadn’t seen the picture in over a decade when I found it on Pinterest.  In my mind, those polka dots were pink.  And I…

Frame Makeover {Before and After}

Frame Makeover {Before and After}

 I found two sad, sad, picture frames on the clearance aisle at my local pottery store.  I guess they’re not that bad.  They just wouldn’t go with anything else in my house.  But they were wooden and I liked the wide frame.  And for $4 I knew I could make them my own. About two months later I finally got around to painting them.  I used a light blue Craftology paint from Michaels.  It took 2.5 coats to hide those…

Gallery Wall Update

Gallery Wall Update

I’ve shared my gallery wall before when I posted about the oval silhouette frames. I recently expanded it with a large wooden “J” from Scrappin Plus on etsy.  It came unfinished so I slapped two coats of black paint on it and added it to my gallery wall. I also added a black and white picture from our last cruise in January in a black frame from Michaels (I think). I’m not one of those people who cut out pieces…

Painted Porch Ceiling

Painted Porch Ceiling

We had a great July 4th weekend.  I kept busy playing with my girly girls and doing projects around the house. I’m so excited to share my new porch ceiling!  Ever since I saw Edie’s haint blue porch ceiling and Jen‘s painted porch, I’ve been itching to paint mine blue.  Being a Carolina girl, I love anything light blue. What better way to show my colors than right there on the front porch so it’s the first thing people see? …
