DIY Jewelry Cabinet

DIY Jewelry Cabinet

Wow!  It has been quite a long time since I’ve posted any of our projects around the House on Harrison.  That little pop up camper has taken up all our time.  But I wanted to share with you a project that I worked on for Bug’s Room. Bug is a teenager now, so getting ready […]

Our Entryway & Mudroom {Dressed up for Fall}

Entryway Shoe Cabinet Fall

I’ve been working on a few projects here and there, trying to make sure our house is warm and welcoming {and clean!} for our Thanksgiving guests.  I pulled out a few more fall decorations and painted a cute sign for the top of the shoe cabinet, so I thought I’d give you guys a tour […]

When Good Projects Go Bad


One of my best girlfriends told me on the phone a couple of days ago that all my projects turn out perfect and that I’ve never had one fail.  I had to laugh out loud at that one.  That is far from the truth.  In fact, with most of my projects, I usually reach a […]

{Spooky} Halloween Vignette

Halloween Wreath Makeover

Now that I have my shoe cabinet finished, I feel all motivated to decorate for the seasons.  I didn’t think I was going to decorate for Halloween, but then Beth over at Home Stories A to Z posted her Halloween Mantles Link Party, and I was inspired!  So I pulled out the Halloween box and […]

DIY Pallet Wood Gate

Pallet Wood

I’m back today to share with you a super quick and easy project I made with some free pallet wood.  My brother-in-law has access to a lot of pallet wood through his work, and I’m always trying to figure out something to build from it.  When I built my shoe cabinet, I wanted some way […]

Pottery Barn Inspired Shoe Storage


I’ve always wanted a really beautiful entryway.  I have had visions of a Pottery Barn picture perfect entry space since we moved into the house on Harrison. I have loved this cabinet since I first laid eyes on it.  I can’t remember who makes it, but I’ve seen it on Pinterest a lot.  If it […]

The Fall Decor is Going Up!


Ever have one of those days when nothing is going right?  Every single last project I was working on hit a snag yesterday.  The house was a mess and life felt chaotic.  I was D-O-N-E… and it was definitely showing in my mood, too.  Then I remembered I that it is technically autumn, even if […]

A Chair Makeover – Animal Style

Today I’m super excited to share a project I’ve been working on for a few days–my very first reupholstery project!  Woo hoo!  About three years ago, I purchased two of these chairs off Craigslist for $20 each.  I had really good intentions, but I was also very, very scared to screw them up.  So…  I […]

My New {Old} Candlesticks

I’m taking a break from working on Bug’s room to show you a quick, easy fix for those ugly candlesticks you always see in thrift stores or may even have hanging around the house.  I needed some candlesticks for my bathroom, and Pottery Barn had the perfect ones.  Aren’t they pretty? I really loved these, […]

Bug’s Lavender and Turquoise {Tween} Room


When we moved into the house on Harrison, the room Bug picked out was hideous.  The walls were painted with the most obnoxious shades of blue, pink and purple you could think of.  There were fairy stickers all over the walls.  The ceiling was bright blue, and the beautiful crown molding was painted hot pink.
