When I was busy making over my salvaged farmhouse bathroom makeover, I desired a creative way to store toilet paper. And that’s when a checkerboard yardstick toilet paper holder entered the picture.

You Asked – How to decorate a bathroom rustic

Screen Shot 2014-02-12 at 11.54.36 PM

I get lots of emails behind the scenes. And I tend to answer lots of questions the same way. Zipping an email back has been a pretty standard thing. Rather than hiding all those valuable answers, I thought I’d bring a few of them to the blog every now and then, in hopes that the […]

2. Master bathroom wins, voice of reason loses

Screen Shot 2014-01-09 at 12.28.40 AM

The voice of reason attempted to speak to me today. That voice that keeps everything on an even keel. The safe voice. “Guuurrrrllll… don’t go messing up a perfectly fine bathroom! Do the other one to get it in production! Leave this one alone. Get your house DONE so you can call it DONE. Why […]

Dear friends… this post right here could make me famous. I think I’ll look into retiring right this minute from all the potential pin traffic that’s about to transpire… because this one is a BEEEE AUTY!

I do this every Christmas. I think I’m going to completely unplug from DIY over the holidays, but then once my son is out of the house for a few days, I’m back at it again. I mean, what else does one do when your only hobby is fiddling with the house?! 🙂 A friend […]
