• Boho Eclectic Bedroom: Source List & Makeover Plans

    I have partnered with Raymour & Flanigan for this post. All expressed opinions are 100% my own. This post also contains some affiliate links for which I may receive a small commission. Full disclosure. A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that my husband and I are finally going to focus on making a bedroom retreat for ourselves. We haven’t had a dedicated bedroom since before having kids. After they were born it has served double duty with the other side taking on various roles such as baby nursery, storage room and art studio. Well, not anymore. We moved to the smaller of our two bedrooms and are now in…

  • Deer Antler Ring Holder

    I have always loved jewelry and have a thing for finding unique ways to display all of it. A couple of weeks ago, I showed a glimpse into our new bedroom with some simple storage ideas for jewelry including a real deer antler. I picked this antler up from an antique mall for $10 and decorated with it from time to time. Then when I saw this idea (affiliate link*) from Urban Outfitters, I knew that it was exactly what I wanted to do with it. It holds my cocktail rings, engagement ring and wedding band (which I currently don’t wear much because they only fit on my pinky after having…

  • Organizing Winter Gear without a Closet or Mudroom

    Even though this winter has been a mild one for us, there have still been plenty of cold days requiring getting all bundled up before heading out. Unfortunately, without having a coat closet on the first floor, we are limited for storage of all of our gear. Today, I am sharing some solutions that have worked to help keep it all organized. Our home, thankfully, has decent sized closets upstairs, but not even one downstairs! We do have a small “mudroom”, that leads to the basement, off the back of the house, but we never use that entrance. The space is in pretty rough shape and it’s very tight, so…

  • Miniature Fixer Upper {a dollhouse makeover ‘before’}

    We are used to having a fixer upper to work on ever since buying our first home back in 2010, but when my husband brought home a handmade dollhouse that he found at a yard sale a couple of years ago, I was instantly smitten and knew we needed to show this home as much love as we have our own. Today, I am showing you the “before” pics and sharing the progress we have made thus far on our “other fixer upper.” Ever since I was a little girl, I have been enamored with dollhouses and miniatures. I would literally save up my money to go to a craft…

  • The Bedroom Switch

    I mentioned last week that my husband and I just recently swapped our large master bedroom for the kids’ small shared room. We live in a 1300 square foot, two bedroom and this has been a project I had been wanting to tackle for well over a year. Don’t you love when you finally knock something big off of your “list to do”? Today, I am giving a little sneak peek of how I quickly pulled it together in the interim, before it gets a full on makeover. With so much “stuff” upstairs, I stalled on this project for such a long time. What finally got me motivated was decluttering. We literally…

  • Vintage Eclectic Jewelry Display

    If you love jewelry as much as I, today’s post is for you! Especially if you love organizing it in creative and unique ways. Which is basically what I am all about around our home… I have always loved jewelry and have grown quite a stash over the years. In high school I had four ear piercings on each ear, wore ten to twelve silver rings every day and doubled up on some fingers. I got my belly button pierced the day of my high school graduation party (much to my mother’s chagrin) and always wore layers of necklaces and bracelets. Later, I got into vintage style and often wore…
