    One Room Challenge – Week 2

    One Week of Demolition Progress For my Powder Room Remodel This week should be named “It is Going to Get Worse Before it Gets Better”. I do my best to keep my ‘construction zone’s clean and to clean between each step so that I don’t get too overwhelmed with how chaotic a renovation can be. I also have pets and if I leave the door open, I don’t want them trailing wallpaper adhesive throughout the house or to eat something dangerous. So I clean.

    Beautiful Boho DIY Cane Cabinet Makeover

    TRANSFORMING AN PLAIN OLD CABINET INTO A BOHO BEAUTY I’ve always wanted to have a boho cane cabinet in my space but they’re so popular and sometimes that means, expensive. Here’s the thing, I tend to love expensive things, but I can’t afford them. This is one of the biggest reasons that I love DIY. I can create the look for myself, at a price that I can afford! I worked on this project as a part of the Furniture Flip Challenge on Instagram. It was so much fun, I will probably participate every year!

    How to Paint Your Front Door Like a Professional

    MY FRONT DOOR NEEDED A FACE LIFT SO I WILL SHOW YOU HOW TO DO YOURS TOO BEFORE My front door has been white, which is plain and uninteresting, at least on my house!
