To display or not to display?
I recently came into possession of these vintage copies of six of Shakespeare's plays.   Aren't they pretty? As a high school ELA teacher with a cat named Oberon (partly for the fairy king, partly for a good wheat beer) whose address and subdivision are als...

Finished Kitchen
It's done! It's been a slow burning project, this kitchen. It didn't strike Mike and me as a room in need of a full reno back in 2013 when we moved in, but as these things tend to go, one "little" update just led to another and another. The top three pictur...

Custom Kitchen Soffits
One of the aspects of our kitchen that I grew to dislike over our few years in this house is the space over our kitchen cabinets.  By no means was that space a major issue--we bought the house perfectly happy with that look, but I'm just not one for display...

Gift Wrap Station
If you've ever gotten lost in the beauteous organizational haven that is searching "craft room" on Pinterest, you've likely been hypnotized by one gift wrap station or another. It's not just me, right?  Rolls of paper and ribbon on rods neatly hung among ot...

Finishing Touch to the Staircase

Cat-Proof Furniture (We hope!)
The four chairs we bought for our living room two years ago have finally fulfilled their destiny.  By that I mean our cat has essentially destroyed them.  The Humane Society successfully guilted us into not having kitty declawed sixteen years ago when we ad...

Staircase Update
I recall looking at the photo below several years ago when it was just of a staircase in a house on the market.  Like the fireplace surround, the kitchen counter tops, and so many other parts of this house we now live in, while I disliked this staircase bef...

Years of Living in During
It's funny to think back. We bought this house in the fall of 2013.  The kids were three and a half with one more year of preschool/child care ahead of them.  Mike had over an hour commute to and from work each day.  My dad was the only one of our kids' gra...

Transform Old Dishes Into Mercury Glass
After giving a pair of glass lamps a mercury glass makeover some years back, I now have a hard time looking at any clear glass decorative item without fantasizing about tackling it with some Krylon Looking Glass paint.   It's such a quick, easy, and fun pro...
