The Calm Before The Storm.

Atlas and Joey

This is a DIY blog, and for five years to the date almost (YAY!), we haven’t gotten too deep and personal about much and have kept it DIY and home design related. That doesn’t mean we have had it easy breezy 24/7, it just means for two folks who pour their home improvement hearts out, […]

And it was all white


I’m gonna let you in on a little secret. Kids love to reek havoc on walls. In particular, our little whirlwind, Atlas, is adept at scraping and dragging things along the wall as he either attempts to avoid a diaper change or just see if his Duplo block can pass through the drywall at breakneck […]

How you like me now?

This motion switch went in the  bathroom. That switch on the right has saved me from an early grave. It’s a motion sensor switch by Legrand from their Adorne line. We’ve been outfitting our house with them so this probably isn’t the first time you’ve seen them on the page, but this one deserves some […]

DIY Floating Shelves, Floating Shelves, reclaimed wood floating shelves

Oh TV table. I can’t wait to move you. But this story isn’t about you. It’s about creating some floating shelves on the far wall so we can get some much needed storage and activity space for Atlas. This also isn’t about painting so I will spare you the tale of me painting yet another […]

It ‘Rox

So, this happened. It’s not anything new around here, and it’s not worth crying over – but it is worth a deep cleaning over. If you know me personally, you have an idea that I carry around a travel size of disinfectant spray. I have a variety of hand sanitizer that would put Baskin Robin’s […]

Next Up: Living Room

living room mood board I makingahouseahome.com

We have been chatting “living room” for the past few weeks, with not so much as a curtain decision until this past weekend. We had an epic “fail” with the reclaimed wood we bought for the dining room built in (hello bowed wall). It sort of forced us to made some decisions. That wood is […]

Living in Rooms

Our living room is small. We were shocked our couch fit and it didn’t need to join the dining set in storage. We loved this couch. We drove through Hurricane Sandy for this couch. We weren’t going to be happy if things didn’t work. We had to nix the extra large coffee table, which is […]

Who do I look like, Prince Leopold!? We don’t need no stinkin’ chair rails! Now put on your best 18th Century garb and lets tear up some wall. Or, ideally, not tear it up. Princess Lana decreed that chair rails shall be banished from within our domicile walls and the little boy in me said, […]
