Board & Batten Bathroom


This is a half bath in a beautiful country home.
The homeowners thought this bathroom was too dark
 and wanted to brighten it up a bit.
(no "before" picture...sorry)

Boys Room Before

This week I get to makeover a cute little boys room into a girl room.
 I helped decorate this bedroom a couple of years ago.
This little boy gets to move in with his big brother to make room for the "surprise" baby sister that is due to arrive in just a few weeks.

Pretty Parsley & Basil

(I should say 'Not So' Pretty Parsley and Basil.)

A week or so ago I planted some herbs in recycled peanut butter jars.
To see that post click here .

Although I did put gravel in the bottoms of the jars for drainage, it wasn't enough.
I needed to relocate the little herbs so they could live - poor things.

Here is what I found at IKEA for $9.99

Let's Talk Doors...

When I take my kids to school I drive by this door on a garage in my neighborhood ....
This post is about using doors in creative ways.

Indoor Wood Pallet Flower Box

A couple of weeks ago I cut down an old wood pallet for my little boy's room.
I made two bookshelves out of it but only used one.
I found a space for the other....

Music Room

Our room for music and relaxing...

Pin Inspiration Weekend #1


I was home with my sick little boy over the weekend so we kind of lounged around a bit
 - kind of like Sadie does every day.
To entertain myself while Luke played quietly,
I went to my pin boards and decided to create.

My Inspiration:




This is really cute so I made one kind of like it.




I went to the hardware store for those little plumbing straps.
They were $2.50 each.
I found a wood piece from an old door in my garage and painted it white.
My planters are recycled peanut butter jars.
I used U nails to attach the straps and slid my planters right into the circular opening.
Then tightened them up with a screwdriver. 
The herbs are from the grocery store.
(I already killed one of them - so the one on the left is a "stand in" plant for the photo)

My other inspiration:




I made a ladder several months ago and used it for blankets etc.
I like this one in the laundry but I wanted one in my kitchen to hang dried herbs from.





Since I wasn't sure if I would really love this,  I decided to not make holes in the ceiling.
The ladder is light weight so I hung it from my light fixture with S hooks and rope.
(I installed those light fixtures so I know how good they are anchored in -
 I think it will hold.)
