the farm: my office

My office has been a bit uninspiring. With big houses and the DIY couple, plenty of projects get undertaken but seldom finished on time or all at once for that matter. So is the case at our house. I have not finished decorating my laundry room. I still need window treatments, accessories and the mentioned…

    I think you might have gotten the same effect with a hot glue gun!!! LOL!!!ReplyCancel

  • I really don’t think it looks bad in here at all. I think all the white would really work with some of your pieces up on the walls.

    Can’t say Im digging the carpet too much but you could put down some engineered click floors yourself. I did it in my last house’s basement and it wasn’t nearly as hard as I though it would be. And a little sparkly light fixture would finish the room nicely.ReplyCancel

  • Yes, I think it will look nice too, once I decide what to put up as I have 3 months of whiteboard calendar from Pottery Barn to go up somewhere also (it’s gotta be functional for me as well).

    The carpet, while it’s not horrific, is not the best choice for someone with dogs (we have two). It attracts every bit of hair and for sanity one must vacuum it at least once a day! NOT my gig. Yes, I could go with those floors and that may not be a bad idea, considering the wide plank we want is still quite a few years off and it’s presumably best to have them all done at once – as in, the entire downstairs.ReplyCancel

the farm: the downstairs bathroom, numero uno.

Refer to lower level floorplan for location. If you don’t have access to that, you’ll have to request it. Behold the current state of one of the downstairs bathrooms. You know it’s time for a bathroom update when my 2 year old starts tearing off the wallpaper. I think she is giving us a HUGE…

  • See – this is why I don’t want to permanently affix any wallpaper in my house. Im sure whoever put that up thought it was the cat’s pajamas!

    Can you get rid of the wallper and leave the rest until you have more time/resources for a reno? There really is nothing wrong with it that the wallpaper remover and some white paint can’t solve. Its got a lot of charm and space so thats more than most bathrooms have.

    Have you tired that spray window insulation? It can help a lot if the window is not leaking warm air.ReplyCancel

  • Yes. I can certainly remove the wallpaper – I intend to either do that myself or have Gwen, the 2 year old finish up the job she started!

    Seriously though – the floor is buckling because vinyl was installed OVER tile – so I may just go ONCE MORE over and then wait a year or two – then gut.

    I’m sure that spray window insulation would work wonders – but not in the CLOSET where it appears to have the leak. The window is fine. The closet is freezing. I hate getting my towels out when it’s cold.ReplyCancel

cell phone shot of the day

I’m alive! Sorry, offline life has been crazy these days. Busy. I finished painting my office but I need to take some after photos of it (I even have a blog post in my drafts waiting for the afters).  I’m at a complete interior design standstill.   I’m addicted to painting whites these days. I…
