Fireplace Change Up?

19mebeckdesign

I’ve been staring at the fireplace lately, wondering if I should paint it gray like the cabinets in the kitchen or perhaps maybe just re-tile the surround or paint the tile instead for a super cheap and easy fix?  It doesn’t look bad, definitely better than when we moved in to what I used to [...]

Our Family Room

tdcbeforeandafter

Just like my underwear I am constantly changing, (I may occasionally pee them a little while laughing or sneezing, I’ve had 4 kids what can I say?) so is the family room constantly changing.   I love my white slip covered furniture, I really do.  Even though most days it looks like this with dog [...]

My Fall Mantel

The kids are back to school, the pool is being drained, leaves are starting to turn, the temperature is a cool 95 degrees, ok ignore that last part but everything else points to falls arrival.  My friend Erin at How to Nest for Less posted a pic of her beautiful fall mantel and I was [...]

Musical Furniture Friday Fun, check it out y’all

After painting the family room, kitchen and entry way BM Gray Owl this week, I thought maybe it was time to allow Ektorp back in to the family room. She had been banished to the basement for a while but I was missing her whiteness in my life.  It also helps that I found an [...]

Random Stuff and a Peek at the Gray Owl Paint

I’m popping in quick to remind you that GFC is going away for me this week as I am in the process of getting a blog redesign and moving to WordPress. You can follow me through RSS feed, email or fb which is all located on the right hand side of the blog. You would [...]

Thrift Store Score!

Last week I posted some pics of the family room. The one thing that this room is missing is lighting. Ok, it has lighting but I am talking about lighting that doesn’t look like giant adjustable eyeballs in the ceiling. The lamps are kind of sparse in our house right now, there are two in [...]

Room & Furniture Swapping, do you do it?

Well I think the title of this blog sums it up fairly well. Why is it when I have things I need to do, I instead find other things to do? Like rearranging rooms, moving dressers from the basement to the main floor to the garage to the dining room and family room to the [...]
