Welcome to our home. Affectionately known as my canvas.

This blog was born after I decided to paint the kitchen. But the paint color clashed with the cabinets. So I painted those too. But then the painted walls and painted cabinets clashed with the ugly hunter green Formica counter tops. So I replaced them too …

But then the newly painted kitchen clashed with the living room. And dining room. And …

and …

and here we are now. With a blog chronicling my escapades. Moving from room-to-room. Wielding a paint brush and roller. As I give our home … my canvas … a diy refresh and remodel.

Here’s a tour of what I’ve completed thus far {just click on the room pictures for more details and pictures} …

    I was looking for the white mantel that was pinned on pinterest.from your blog. Could you like me to it? I really like your blog. Thanks in advance

      I’m not sure what white mantel that you are looking for. I don’t have any fireplaces in my home. Sometimes people pin things off of my sidebar where I show what I’ve been pinning. So sorry!
