Thanks for stopping by!
We are two house-loving DIYers now onto our second house. One of us has vision...and one has actual skills.
Design and working on our home are our major hobbies, whenever we have a few moments of free time not devoted to our daughter or jobs. We are hoping to share our ideas, triumphs and mistakes to help other DIYers and get new ideas from all of you!

Past Project: Guest room

Besides the  upstairs, the most important room for us to have ready was the guest room.  (It is one of the two bedrooms on the first floor.)  In this room, we tackled the less-than-stellar walls with a TON of scraping and skim-coating.  Afterwards, Brent said...never again-new drywall would have been easier!

This is the "girliest" room in the house, but I like to think the aqua and green color scheme keep the men who stay in it happy.

Wall color: Behr's Aqua smoke
Nightstands and lamps - Ikea
Chandelier - Ikea
Curtains - Pottery Barn (from several years ago)
Dresser - refurbished from childhood bedroom
Bed - Jordan's furniture (from over a decade ago)
Butterfly pictures - Home Goods
Mirror - TJ Maxx, then painted
Box on dresser: TJ Maxx
