Personal & Business Update

Well, first off, I should probably stick to my day job as I'm definitely not a very good blogger! It's been ages since I last posted, sorry guys. This year has been a struggle for me. As you may know, I was off on a medical leave for 17 weeks. This is how long it… Continue reading Personal & Business Update

Thrift Store Lamp Makeover

If you remember a few of weeks ago when I went to Salvation Army to buy something to make a top for my side table, I also bought a pair of old brass lamps. Yes, they are ugly but nothing a little paint can't fix, right?! I struggled with choosing a colour. I was thinking… Continue reading Thrift Store Lamp Makeover

I had been scouring Pinterest forever for lighting inspiration and searching Wayfair to find just the right look for our dining room. I had… Continue reading Our Dining Room Chandelier

Our Dining Room Buffet

The next piece I wanted for our dining room was a buffet table. I wanted somewhere to hide all our garbage that we had in our rolling storage cart. We first got the cart when the kids were little, for craft supplies. I haven't gone through the cart yet but I'm sure I can purge… Continue reading Our Dining Room Buffet
