BEAUTIFUL CABINET MAKEOVER AND BRICK WALL - soft turquoise



This is a two for post, 2 makeovers in 1 article. The wall got a makeover and so did the cabinet. The room all this is happening in is a small add on to the mobile home. Over time I have been grooming it into a nice little semi formal entry.

SIGN MAKING FOR OUR KITCHEN - and hanging heavy wall items




Our kitchen sign was made using a portion of an old wood door that already had chipping paint. Once I knew I was using the word "KITCHEN" I measured how much space I had so I could calculate how big each letter could be. And then formulated a plan to make the letters I needed with supplies I already had in the house.

TOURING OUR WINTER KITCHEN - wood blinds + wood stove top




Last time I was here I shared one half of our kitchen and the updates I have done this year. Since then we have both been sick and everything has been in slow motion around here. The sun has been shining and I finally got some photos taken to share the second half of the space.

HORSE MAKEOVER - snowy white



I first saw Snowy at a vintage market and it was love at first sight. He had two missing ears, a tail that was falling off, a bad paint job, and a cracked leg. I turned to GG and said "he needs me"

OUR WINTER LIVING ROOM - getting organized after christmas



After Christmas I prefer to work with a clean slate. The floor gets vacuumed a million times and every bit of decor gets taken down and put aside. Then I start to create the new feeling I want in our living room one piece at a time.
