Even though I spoke to her on the phone regularly, I wrote to my grandma often until she passed away two years ago.
I love that piece so much and would use it for the same purpose but I really need it to be completely functional. That said, now that we have Nova, I am a little more thrifty with my home purchases and a bit more concerned about durability. I believe anyone can DIY, they just need to find their thing. Love what you did to the room, it’s so much more open and brighter!Oh my gosh…. ""As you can see here, replacing the plantation shutters with modern blinds and curtains makes such a big difference. ""What I love most about the blinds is that you really don’t even notice they are there when they are rolled up." Walking in the footsteps of Martha Stewart, she’s happiest when she’s crafting or whipping up a new recipe; although nothing beats curling up with a good book and some Girl Scout Cookies. We’re projector users ourselves (we love it!). Reply. Linnea October 05, 2018 . I have basically the same writing nook really want to paint/refinish both but have seem SOOOO many poorly painted cabinets.Try oil based paint and a stain blocking primer first.I think this post should be called “the Power of Paint!” Unbelievable transformation! You did a fantastic job here. xx! I could have just said, “it’s comfortable and easy to clean.” Haha!The coffee table is my absolute DREAM coffee table. I wrote more about fake plants Oh!
Incredible transformation from dark and dated to light and modern and fun! Or is it more of just a tray that you put in the bottom? It will not be functioning as a dining table in our home, but will still see A LOT of use with our seven (!!!!!) Thank you! Did you install it yourself?
I have lived in an “overdecorated” bedroom in the past, so for this home, my main focus was SLEEP. We love the videos you post of her, because her voice! We keep this information as up-to-date as possible for each window treatment and accessory and are closely monitoring all items. And do you sand the furniture first? My favorite item in the room is obviously Nova…but that goes without saying.Was your Hand Chair from Wayfair also $998, like the Anthropologie one you linked?They are pricey.
Painting a room white does really bring some light in. When i look back at the shiplap post i can’t believe how big of an impact the teal stove makes in all of your new photos! Do you have a solution for this issue?
And second question, what type of flooring did you use? But I still wanted to show it because I love it so much.
Step inside the world of Elsie and Emma, the sisters behind the décor blog There are so many great brands now. Episode #50: Moving Updates. I love vintage shopping! I love the painted fireplace – it adds such a great texture and looks so fresh and modern! Abigail Sawyer is a Senior Social Media Specialist for Blinds.com. It’s one of the best investments of time and money I have ever made because we use these spaces every day.
Would love to have a DIY on how you painted the cabinets and counter. The whole rest of the house is gorgeous hardwood from the 60’s, but I have no idea what to do to go with it! !I am so in love with what you did to your home, esp this living space. It’s definitely worn in a bit, but I wanted it to look that way so it wasn’t too precious.
I want them to look well curated, but still contain some of the quirky objects we’ve collected and love.Hello! Thank you!! you have amazing taste!Wow!! ?In our house someone painted the fireplace white and it was upsetting because in our house (1871 farmhouse) a regular brick fireplace paired with a cool natural wood mantel and all white walls would have looked fantastic, but your fireplace looks 1000x better! Linnea October 05, 2018 . Yes- I am planning on sharing them after we pick the name for little sis.
Something went wrong. And do you have a place where you hide any game consoles or the like?The speakers are on the bookshelf (we just have the two speakers, we didn’t prioritize surround sound).

I keep a running list on my phone! I fluff the back pillows once in a while, but otherwise I don’t really think about it.So, yes, I highly recommend these sofas for anyone who is open to a leather sofa or is specifically looking for something that will hold up with kids and pets. Looking at the blue velvet Sven ???
Such a great transformation.
They really block out most of the light, even in full daylight when they are down. I do have one question.
Most recently, she and her family sold the Nashville home that they had renovated over 3 years. There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes in that biz. Around our home, we have tons of vintage rugs from Turkey, brass sculptures and ceramics from the 1970s.
Just ask Elsie Larson of A Beautiful Mess and A Color Story app, who considered her outdated home a “blank canvas for renovation.”
I am currently in a fireplace quandary and am super interested in what you did with the glass. Well, this is by far the longest I’ve ever spent decorating a room and maybe the most challenging room in our home, but the payoffs are SO BIG. The (new) print here came one day after we shot the rest of the room—haha. (I live in an area where most homes are being sold to developers, who then turn them into bland McMansions. Since most rooms hadn’t been updated in decades, it was like a blank canvas for renovation…with great bones! Since our products are custom and made to order, we may encounter issues in production after purchase.
