Alley Appeal

Whazzup all you cool people? I have a sweet makeover to share with you today facilitated by my nice neighborly pals over at Ace Hardware, (thanks Ace, you da best!). Us Ace bloggers were asked to get really in depth on a project this summer, something that we were really itching to get at. I knew right away that I had to tackle my garage. I have a few good reasons for this. Firstly, the exterior of it is so boring; white vinyl siding paired with a plain white aluminum door leaves much to READ MORE

Basement Remodel : Week 6

Hey Guys! Sorry, I've been a little MIA lately. We were on a family vacay and I was very much phoning it in for the last few weeks. I haven't been a good poster, or comment responder, or blogger in general - but don't worry, those days are over. Alright, so I went away for two weeks and got to come back to a drywalled basement!

So here's a few not so pretty pics of the progress: Everything READ MORE

Lots has been happening over the last week and a half, the biggest of these is the framing of the walls and columns and window installation.

Peekaboo Pattern featuring JuJu Wallpaper

Bros. I'm excited about this one. A few months ago Rejuvenation reached out to me asking if I might be interested in doing a project featuring Portland's own JuJu wallpaper (one of their most recent collabos). After perusing (and drooling over) the line of super cute and likable wallpapers I wrote back and said "heck yes". Now let me start by saying, I have a thing for wallpapers. In my home, I've plastered three spaces with wallpaper and have plans of adding more paper to the basement READ MORE
