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, […]

Whenever we do a project, it’s always a cross-your-fingers-and-hold-your-breath endeavor.

There are a few things in life that have become so ubiquitous we never give them a second thought. Gas on the right, brake on the left. QWERTY keyboards. Horribly ugly and outdated light switches.

Did you get to check out our home tour? We shared a peek of our master bathroom, and have been slowly been making decisions. I think we nailed some stuff down, but you never know with us. I meditate a lot on a room before we take action. The bathroom is now a little country […]

A Little Paint Therapy

When we decided to move, I had a couple things in mind. I wanted a home we could be more playful with. Our last house was a little stuffy and stiff and didn’t allow for much fun. I suppose we could have gone a little worldly “fun”, or perhaps eclectic more than we did, but […]

Let the Light One In

Sconce, Barn Light Electric Sconce, DIY Sconce

There is an ongoing debate between Lana and I about whether or not visible wires on sconces are acceptable. You’ll know who wins in about 2 seconds. Or if you are savvy in the ways of married life you already know. That lovely brass number is from our go to light people at Barn Light […]
