• DIY Vintage Book Pumpkins

    Make Fall pumpkins out of ordinary books or vintage books…..OH YES YOU CAN!!! HERE’S HOW TO DO IT! Start by finding a book that you don’t use or want. It doesn’t matter what it looks like because you are going to take the cover off and only use the inside pages of the book. Cut off right top pages of book to form shape of pumpkin. Note: you will only be able to cut several pages at a time with scissors. Then do the same thing to the bottom right side pages of book doing several pages at a time. Keep this up until all pages have been cut and…

  • Pantry Makeover

    My pantry has been in need of a reorganization for a while. Let’s just say it has been a hot mess for way too long now. My daughter was with us this past week and she decided to work on our pantry! Score!! We sat down together and worked on a plan for things that I needed for the pantry such as new containers, baskets, and other bins that we would need for good organization. She got on the computer and found some good options on Amazon and they arrived in just a few days! I can’t believe we are actually going to get this pantry done! So the next…

  • $5 Find Transformation! with Rust-Oleum

    I’m at it again with another Rust-Oleum makeover! This time, it’s with a yard sale find from a few weeks ago. I’m finally posting everything and getting caught up! I found this wire basket thing at a yard sale and knew I could do something with it, but I wasn’t sure exactly what. It’s a pretty long piece. At first, I thought about hanging it on a wall to organize plants. Then, I thought about turning it into a laundry organizer. I had so many ideas rolling around in my head! And then I thought about turning it into table. My daughter suggested using hairpin legs for the table! What’s…

  • Rust-Oleum Bicycle Makeover!

    As Haven conference is coming up, I’ve been SO busy with fun projects! One of them is a Rust-Oleum spray paint challenge. The spray paint challenge is to transform and refresh a furniture or decor piece! Here is my transformation: We’ve had this bike for years (got it from my niece), and we used to ride it around! But then it sat on the side of the house. And it sat. And it sat. Until FINALLY I decided to transform it. I used Rust-Oleum’s 2020 Coral color because it popped and reminded me of summer! I love this 2020 color line and could’ve gone with any of the choices honestly.…

  • Baby Nursery Room Reveal!

    I’ve been working on something fun for a few months now, and we can finally reveal it! My oldest daughter is pregnant with her first baby due in November!! I’m a grandma to two beautiful girls from my son and daughter-in-law, so when I found out my daughter was pregnant after she had been trying for a while I was SO HAPPY. And of course I immediately dreamt up some plans for the baby’s room. Here’s our “vision board” my daughter and I put together before the room began! I partnered with some AMAZING businesses and brands to pull this room together, working with my daughter’s vision, of course. She…

  • Sink Dreams Come True!

    Hi, I’m Sue and I live in Southern California in a town called Temecula. It’s about an hour north of San Diego. Many people do not know where Temecula is but it is nicknamed Wine Country and it’s a very beautiful place to live. My family has lived here for 14 years. Our home is a place that I love to be—in fact, I prefer to stay home many nights instead of going out! Are you like that? A homebody too?  There is no place like being home and I love my home. Our home is a work in progress I like to say I am always working on something, whether…

  • Kitchen Remodel

    SUE’S KITCHEN REMODEL We moved into our home 14 years ago and have never been able to update our kitchen until now! The granite that we have lived with for all these years had an orange and brown color to it. The prior owners upgraded the kitchen with Thermador appliances and a Sub Zero refrigerator which have been a nice addition to the space. We had been wanting to replace the sink and faucet for a long time and so we just decided to do it!  It turned out AMAZING!  Below are the before pictures of the kitchen.   LANGE COPPER APRON FRONT SINK  SINKOLOGY.COM Believe it or not, the sink…

  • Master Bath Renovation: Mother/Daughter Edition

    What’s better than one renovation? TWO!  That’s right, we have a special post today because we are featuring two bathroom renovations, with before-and-after photos! One bathroom is in California and the other was in Arizona!  My master bathroom was completed around September 2018, and my daughter’s master bathroom was completed just a few weeks ago!  CALIFORNIA We always wanted to do something about our master bathroom, so we finally made the choice to just do it! The room was a little outdated (we hadn’t updated it much since we bought the home), and we were feeling ready for a reno!  The renovation process took a few months, but it was…
