2016 in Review

Happy (slightly belated) New Year! 2016 was the first full year for six years, that we haven’t moved house. We stayed put the entire year. That, on it’s own, makes me very happy indeed. It meant I was able to invest a lot more time and energy into making our little London abode our own. I completed two room makeovers, both for the One Room Challenge. The first, our shared kids room, has had the most hits of all the posts I published in 2016. It’s a bright, happy room, and… View Post

2015 In Review

2015 was rather lame-o on the blog. I hardly blogged at all, for which there are many reasons, none of them very interesting (mostly involving kids and moving house, again). Of the handful of posts I did get out, here are my three favorites: – Sneak Peek: Sebastian’s Room – – Design Board & Plans for Eleanor’s Bedroom – Side note: I think these two posts kinda sum up why I was so unproductive – both talking about plans and progress but neither ever followed up and finished.

Of the little I have had chance to share though, here’s my best of… Slip Covered Nursery Glider One day I will finish the arms on this thing…one day. Simple Silhouette Nursery Art While we’re on the subject – one of Eleanor’s first words was “Teddy” (our dog’s name), so this little project seems even more fitting for her bedroom now! Entry Way Makeover Big Boy… View Post

Best of 2011…

Best of 2011…

I’ve been really enjoying other blogger’s year-end round-ups, so I’m joining in! I only started blogging in April, so this is really a best of the last eight months – hopefully I’ll have more to share next year. So, in order of appearance, here are my favorite projects so far… Ikea Goes Glam By far my most viewed post all year! It was a labor of love to turn a very generic $20 Ikea coffee table into something a bit more luxe, but definitely worth the time and effort. I still… View Post
