round up {chalkboard walls}

I have a thing for chalkboard walls. Perhaps they make me feel nostalgic. I used to play school as a kid like it was my job. And who didn’t love to write on the chalkboard in grade school. Chalkboards in the home are fun and functional, if you ask me. They’re easy to make. They’re [continue…]

tgif {roundup and favorite things}

round up {painted dining room chairs}

I’m back with another round up for you! More inspiration. More ideas. What are your thoughts on painted dining room chairs? I recently painted our chairs… twice. First in a blue gray.

rambling about craig.

Well, his list that is. You know. Craig’s List. Oh brother. Someone take the laptop away from me! I was browsing Craig’s List earlier. Not because I’m looking for anything. But because I think it’s fun. Maybe I need to find a better hobby. But until then, I thought I’d share some of my findings [continue…]

roundup {painted stairs}

I think painted stairs are so fun. Here’s a quick roundup to give you some inspiration. The possibilities are endless. source Ombre stairs could be done in any color. source I’m quite fond of these stairs. Simple. Keep a ‘runner’ going up the stairs in the raw/plain wood, and paint the edges white. I like [continue…]

round up: the white wall.

I’ve painted (and repainted) my fair share of rooms. Picking a color is hard. They look different in different lights. Preferences and styles change. And while repainting a room is a relatively easy and quick way to change things up, it’s something that most of us don’t want to do frequently. A gallon of paint [continue…]

I’m baaaa-aaack! Happy New Year, everyone. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. I can’t believe it’s already a couple weeks into 2013. Crazy! It’s been quite some time since I’ve written here. I could give a list of excuses, but nobody wants to read that, so I’ll just jump right in! Gabriel [continue…]
