Why yes, That is crazy

  Here's how this particular episode of crazy began.....recall my post about our “New-ish” Night stands necessitating “New-ish” dressers? Leading to round the clock surveillance of Kijiji to find the perfect pieces? Well, we brought the new dressers home Tuesday – it is possible that they are the heaviest dressers ever made in the … [Read more...]

New (ish) Night Stands

We needed night stands. With a king size bed, the night stands needed some heft, some size, some scale.  Not being a fan of the ‘matchy’ bedroom sets, the world was our oyster in selecting bed side tables...it only took about 3-4 weeks of obsessive Kijiji & CraigsList stalking to find these beauties: Finding 2 tables/stands that were at … [Read more...]

Bathroom MakeOver

Ladders & Ottomans, Oh My.

  Last week I told you about the old ladder turned blanket rack that I was going to be working on....I scored the old ladder on Kijiji.   I sanded off the ugly brown paint (well, most of it.  I tend to lose interest in these steps quickly). Then I just brushed on some very watered down white paint and wiped it … [Read more...]

Living Room Wainscot

  My Living Room was falling flat....I liked our furniture, it was a tv-less room so very peaceful and cozy for reading & relaxing....and it felt - blah. I was thinking wainscot - but wanted...different.  Then I found this:   source Lovely, isn't it? Though I tried (in vain) to convince my Mister that we … [Read more...]
