Three+ years people!
Three+ years the Mr. and I have lived in this bedroom:

Home Depot Before

Not anymore!
Goodbye pops of yellow from our last master bedroom.


You may remember, I got a little ambitious and sold our bed prematurely to make room for the DIY one that was in my head. Then a year went by with our bed on the floor before we actually got around to making it.  Picture that people.

Master Bedroom Sneak peek…

I understand if you guys have totally written me off when it comes to my master bedroom.
Seriously, how long have I been talking about this friggin room already?
I’ve got a million excuses, namely Little man #1, Little man #2 and Little man #3…good excuses.
But the great news is it’s done.
Photographer has shot the room.
I’ve promised to reveal one element of the room in conjunction with a partnership I did with Home Depot and Swiffer in the next week or so.
Here’s a little teaser…




Stay tuned to see the full reveal very soon! Have a great weekend!

How to stage a plant.

“Say what? Plant staging?”
That’s exactly what I said when the lady at the nursery asked if I knew how to stage the plant in the container I was buying.
Ok, I’ve officially heard it all now.
Seriously? Plant staging? Who knew there was such a thing?
Well there is and it’s actually a creative process that takes a plant and fits it properly and artistically in to any container.
