Bonus Room Guestroom....take two


I revealed the bonus room makeover in early March and a couple of weeks after that I actually changed the room up again. I was ready to reveal it several weeks ago, but then the broken foot happened and I couldn't get upstairs to take pictures. Well, now I can finally slowly go upstairs and today I'm sharing the bonus room guestroom....take two.

An Easy Change for a New Look


A very easy way to update a lamp is with a new shade. While I was looking through my Matthew Mead magazine, Upstyled Home outdoors, last month I found a cute shop on etsy called Lampshade Lady and I just had to take a look. I love to swap out lampshades for a new look. I discovered the cutest ones on this site and just had to order one.

This one had me with the grainsack stripes.

Home Style Saturdays


It's the weekend! Any plans? My only plans are to see my mom either today or tomorrow. We try to visit her every other day now since I haven't been able to drive for over four weeks now. I went to the doctor on Thursday and the bone is showing a little new growth. I'm not in pain anymore so I graduated to a hard bottom orthopedic shoe. This thing is definitely not my style. I think I need to design some cute boots and shoes for broken feet. I've gone from a gray boot to an ugly black shoe and I don't go back for three more weeks. 😧

You'll find some inspiration below and here's to a great weekend!

What I'm Loving.....white done right


I love color in a home, but I also love rooms filled with white when the white is done right. To make a white room not come across as cold and sterile it needs texture and some kind of other color besides white. That other color can even be a neutral. With the summer heat upon us already I'm loving white for a cooler feel. Enjoy the examples below.

Slipcovers, nubby texture in the fabric and touches of wood are perfect in this beach cottage.

An Easy Fix


When we changed the tile backsplash in the kitchen there was an issue that needed to be corrected. Since we tiled over the old tile and we didn't won't to remove the border tile, but it was the wrong color with the new tile. I thought for a minute and came up with an easy fix.

Wow Us Wednesdays #326


Welcome wowzers! I hope y'all had a fabulous Mother's Day. We visited my mom in the center she is in for physical rehabilitation and she had a room full along with gifts, cards and pretty flowers. It was nice to see her smiling more. The pain is better, but it is still painful for her to walk. She is doing much better though.

Let's look at some features from last week and get this party started.
