Deuce Cities Henhouse

All I want is Tidiness!

Hmm, I don't know what it is, maybe that two-and-a-half-month remodeling of the basement or could it be that my kids were making huge messes all summer long, but somehow my house is chaotic! I just want one of those houses that looks pretty, put together, and organized all the time, is that too much to ask? When the kids were younger I was so good at tidying up daily and staying on top of the ins and outs of the house, but right now I feel like it's just gotten so away from me. How do I get READ MORE

Dinosaur Feathers & A New Photograph!

You guys remember our bedroom makeover? Towards the end of the proj, we had to make the most of what we had, and one of those things was the artwork. The budget was maxed, and we had a large blank wall space, so I had to make the most of it. If you remember I watercolored an engineer print and "framed" with some 1x2's and hung it on the wall with large bulldog clips.

Bros. I've reopened the investigation into the history of my house and the people who lived here long before us. I've always been so curious of this, and I've never been able to find many answers.

I consider our home a member of our extended family, and I know that my family history will live on with it. Seriously, like woah. Too deep for a Friday morning? Also, it's our five READ MORE

Master Bedroom : Before & After Reveal

Yo. Finally I can say the bedroom is done! We now have a real grown up space that feels awesome to hang out in whether we are lazily waking up on a weekend morning or watching zombie shows at the end of the day. We love it. It took a looooong time, I know. That's because it cost dough (aka cheddar, aka lettuce, aka stacks, aka skrilla, aka money) and projects had to be spread out so that we weren't ever spending too much of our budget at one time. Get it? Jeff trusted me and let me go with READ MORE

Updating Electrical Components

Hello pals, welcome back to the slowest makeover project in the world: our bedroom. It has been no blink-of-an-eye endeavor; it’s more like a slow-mo replay. Over winter break I had to turn off the power a lot. My kids hate me now, as I cause the interruption of their shows and vid games and whatnots. I thought everything was battery powered these days, but apparently I was wrong. Whateves: these fans, sockets, switches and sconces weren’t going to update themselves, so those kids just READ MORE
