  Why Don't You Stay the Night
Oct. 2010

Sometimes I wish the guest bedroom was my bedroom.   I love the transformation this room encountered.  It's such a great before and after- for me.  This room gets so much light and the Valspar Lake Country blue couldn't be more perfect.  Here's the before....

Big smile.  This is the refreshing, fun, young love feel and totally crisp bedroom after...

I found this poster bed at one of my favorite thrift stores.  To read more about this find and see what the bed looked like when I brought it home, check out Poster Bed Find.

Kitchen Makeover
Sept. 1, 2010

Yikes! It's hard to believe that this was our kitchen one year ago. When we bought our town house this is exactly what it looked like- the horrible border, two layers of caked-on wallpaper (hard to see in pics), 21 year-old blinds, stale cabinets, and oh yeah, the gi-NORMOUS light fixture. How can you miss that thing?

And here is how our kitchen looks today!
