• Pink Striped Changing Table

Ivory Parisian Coffee Table


Happy Monday my friends! I hope you all had a good weekend! I spent mine painting the trim in my hallway. It doesn’t sound like a bit project, but by the time you get it all taped off, remove hardware from where the doors are, and get three coats of […]

Pinterest Party Friday #112


Happy Friday my friends!!! Another busy week as usual. I’m getting ready to paint all of the trim in my hallway from honey oak (which I am so over) to white! So I spent all day yesterday taping things off. Definitely not the fun part. Hopefully I will have all […]
