You know it’s a good IKEA hack when your children are impressed.

They are a tough crowd.

You can completely create a paneled wall from 1 x 2’s and they shrug.

Add a plate rack (with a recipe) to the kitchen?  Maybe a raised eyebrow.

But make shelves on a bathroom organizer?  Take 30 minutes to make a project and have the peanut gallery stand up and cheer?

Winner winner chicken dinner.Continue reading

We went to see the BEST movie last night.

I really wanted to write that whole sentence in caps….but it might seem like I was yelling.

It’s called The Longest Ride and it stars Clint Eastwood’s son, Scott Eastwood.

Just his smile alone will make you melt.

He’s like a non-brooding Clint with a grin riding a bull off into the sunset.  And the movie has the BEST ending.

Total spoiler alert.  

They all live happily-ever-after. :)Continue reading

A long time ago in a land far away when I first started writing this blog….

…..my farmhouse bathroom was featured on a really really big website.

I couldn’t believe it.

I was so excited and told anyone who would listen and called my mom and my sister-in-law and several random neighbors to tell them the news.

It was the best thing to happen since sliced bread….

….and spray-on self-tanning lotion. :)Continue reading

5 Tips for Picking the Perfect Paint Color

5 Tips for Picking the Perfect Paint Color

I have wanted to write an updated post about the paint colors from the house for the longest time.

Truly.

And I have been remiss.

So in a vain attempt to make up for the complete and utter lack of paint color discussion…..I thought I would provide completely unsolicited advice on the ins and outs of choosing a paint color.  You know I couldn’t just write a post about paint colors…..I have to offer up a big opinion.  However…..I preface any and all big opinions offered here with the disclaimer that……I am not an expert.

I don’t work for a paint company.

I have not gone to paint color school.

What I am…..though…..is so much better.  I am the person who has painted and repainted and repainted rooms because I couldn’t figure out the answer to this simple question,  “Why did the paint color in the store not look like the paint color on my wall?”

If you are a paint color expert….this post is not for you.  

If you have ever stood in front of a paint chip display and closed your eyes and pointed….please read the following:Continue reading
