Stenciled Entryway Makeover

I recently painted and stenciled a friend’s entryway. The goal for the entryway was to brighten it up and make an inviting statement.  It is the first room guests see when entering the house. I painted the room a pale gray and used an even paler gray for the stencil.  We found the stencil at […]

Fall Decor – Painted Gourds & Leaves

We are hosting Thanksgiving for the first time this year.  Since I’m not great in the kitchen, I decided my table decor needed to be a pretty distraction from the food.  (Last week I shared my newly updated chalk painted dining room table.  To see more, click HERE.)

DIY Vintage Scoreboard

  I recently made a “vintage” scoreboard for a friend’s nursery.  I started with a plain board.  I sanded it down.  And I painted it.  Once the paint dried, I used painters tape to make lines/borders.  I painted the lines white. I printed out the lettering for the board and used carbon paper (flash from […]

Mudroom Stripes

I’ve been wanting to make my mudroom a little more exciting, and I was inspired by a photo I saw in HGTV magazine.  In the photo, the entry was painted in black and white horizontal stripes.  I decided to do the same! Here’s an instagram photo I recently shared.  (BTW – I’d love for you to […]
