How to put the "Fun" into functional for the best kid's rooms

We talk mostly about designing main living spaces and DIY projects on the blog, but today I want to visit with you about a love of mine, and that is designing kids spaces.  Once upon a time...I really wanted to go into the business of interior design for children's bedrooms.  I never explored this dream because the truth is, I was terrif...

Last week, we talked about updating our living room and making small inexpensive changes to freshen a space.  I've found over the years, that you don't have to spend a lot of money to get a fresh new look.  As a family, we spend most of our time in the living room and so this is the area that I chose to update.  I added new pillows, a new rug and a lamp.  I spent about $220 all together and the sp...

It's been a busy year so far with some home projects.  Every year at this time, I always get inspired to change a few things in the house, wether it's clean and organize, change furniture around or just add a few touches of green for the winter.  This year, I did an update in the living room with new pillows, a new rug and some DIY Fern wall art that I created to freshen up the space....

Tis' the Season for all good things,

including hot chocolate and yummy sweet treats!  Every year we do a hot chocolate, cookie and dessert bar and this year we decided to make cupcakes and a beverage bar for coffee, cocoa and teas!  I found the most awesome black chalkboard cupcake liners at Home Goods! I mean, where have these been all my life?  ;)  If you have been following the blog this season...

Living Area Home Tour 2018

This year's Christmas theme is pretty simple and we couldn't be happier about it!  You see, this has been a pretty crazy few months at the Booth household in terms of so much going on.  We have spent a large part of the last few months helping to narrow down college choices for my daughter, who is a senior in high school, filling out applications and getting her prepared...

Dining Room Home Tour

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!Every year I try to do a different decor from the one before and this year was no different, except I knew I wanted to keep it simple.  This year's theme started out with inspiration from one item I found in the Hearth and Hand collection at Target.  I knew when I found the cream napkins with frayed edges and black deer horn garland...

I get so excited for Fall weather and then it seems like it's just not long enough, is it?  This week, we had temperatures in the low 20's at night and it really felt like winter already.  As we near Thanksgiving week and a lot of us already have our Christmas decorations up or at least, if you're like me, a plan for the upcoming season.  I'm not a fan of winter weather, and if you follow along wi...

Where a Dresser finds a spot to call "Home"

I found this dresser at a garage sale in town and brought it home to refurbish, where it sit in my garage for months.  But last week, I showed you the process it took to bring this neglected dresser back to life.  I'm not sure at what point in this process that my heart decided to keep it for my own home, but today I am going to show you where this little...

Hi friends! 

It's been a while since I've shown you a furniture makeover and I thought this would be a perfect dresser to show you.  When I refinish furniture, it is for usually resale but there are times that I do become attached.  Yes, furniture is like puppies!  I spend so much time with them, sanding, fixing and restoring that they always find a way into my heart.  Now, most of the time I will...

January is a time to think about the coming new year and making plans for the future.  Some parts of my business came to a close last year in October, as I prepared to grow this year in the blog and my online Etsy store.  With every end, comes a new beginning and this month we have made many plans, preparations and headway into making those plans come to life.  Because I have been behind the scene...
