Well y’all another month has come and gone. With the end of June we see our new house unloaded (but not unpacked), paint on (most of the walls) and at least some of the furniture arranged. We are so not rocking this new house thing! But at least we have internet so I am no longer using the hotspot on my phone to type posts… thank goodness… the hotspot is REALLY slow!
My birthday has also come and gone (it was fabulous thank you! We ate great food and laughed our butts off watching Melissa McCarthy’s new movie SPY) and now to kick it all off we are headed back to Colorado to watch one of my best friends get married. I can’t wait… it’s the first time we’ll be back since we moved and I can’t wait to see my Daddy and my hubby’s Mom… Colorado has lots of family!
But before we can head out on our trip we have to do the June Round-Up… I wouldn’t leave y’all hanging!

What to do with EXTRA Paint! – If you’ve been around for a while you know that I work at a little place called Sherwin-Williams… still moving for my new promotion actually! Every day I have people say “A quart is the smallest size you can buy? What will I do with all the extra paint?” Well hundreds of customers who don’t even know my blog exists… this ones for you… read more!
How to Make Your Antique Double Bed Into a Queen – I am soooo excited! I have been waiting to write this post ever since I read Miss Mustard Seed’s post about her new guest bed! My mom bought our double size antique cast iron bed frame for me straight out of college. So that means I have been sleeping on my antique double bed for almost 5 years. We took it home and set it up in our guest room… read more!
Curtains for Everyone… 5 DIY Curtain Ideas! – I just spent the entire weekend packing and unloading a 26 foot moving truck… with copious amounts of help from my entire family (thanks y’all!). The one thing I didn’t expect? How many WINDOWS our new house has! There are two in the master, two in the craft room (yes I’m getting a craft room!!! woot woot!!), one in the guest room, two in the office, two in the living room, and two in the kitchen… read more!
Thrift Store Swap – If you’ve been hanging out around here you may have noticed my bright and shiny new page at the top of the screen!!! That’s right! I’m talking about the Thrift Store Swap!! It all started when one fabulous lady had an idea… and she invited the rest of us to participate! The idea? Each of us would go out and buy a thrift store item… for under $10 dollars. Then we would take our item and mail it to one of the other fabulous ladies in our group… read more!
5 Tips to Take your Rental from House to Home – The one question I’ve been asked on repeat ever since arriving at my new store? “Are you moving to town”… followed quickly by “are you buying or renting?” Well y’all we are renting… for various reasons! read more!
My Favorite Posts:
Liveable Luxe… Picking Paint Colors – So everyone keeps asking if we’re settled into our new house yet… and I have to look at the floor and mumble under my breath when I say no. The truth is we haven’t even opened a box (other than the one with shampoo in it!). Why you ask? Well because before I can open boxes and put things away… before pictures can go up on the wall and decorations can be placed… we have to paint! read more!
How to Remove Wallpaper like a CHAMP! – So if you follow me on instagram you already know that we’ve been busy removing wallpaper over here! With a new house comes new projects… and with every action comes an equal (or even more annoying) reaction. Case in point: deciding to paint caused the removal of the ugly wallpaper border. It’s horribly hideous so I’m glad that we’ve decided to kill it… but all the horror stories you hear about how to remove wallpaper? They’re all true. Every single one of them… read more!
How to Pick a Meaningful Wedding Gift for your Husband – With wedding season coming up (and my own one year anniversary recently behind us… May 17th! whoot whoot! ) I thought it would be nice to talk about picking a meaningful wedding gift for your soon to be Husband (or wife if there are men reading!)… read more!
So you Finally have a Craft Room – If you haven’t heard my new house has 3 bedrooms, an office and a living room. You know what that means. After the master bedroom and guest room are claimed there is an extra bedroom! I get a craft room! The hubby put in a bold vote to try and make the extra room a closet… but let’s face it… not gonna happen… read more!
The Man Behind the Blog: Take 4 – It’s my favorite time of the month! Man Behind the Blog time! This month was a little… strained… though. My honey was a complete space cadet! It literally took pliers to get more than one word for each question… which is strange because he normally loves to answer! Oh well… read more!
