Bling the Bedroom

After we finished the nursery we felt a huge wave of satisfaction. “Man, that looks awesome. Totally perfect.” Then we looked at each other and realized it was our favorite room in the apartment. Which was great since we spent so much time and energy on it but uh, what about us? So I decided […]

Junk in the Trunk

One of the many things we traded in for our move to the Wild Wild West was our beloved F150. It was black and shiny and made us feel oh so superior to those amateurs driving Priuses to Menards. Call us vain DIYers. We knew moving to the land of high gas prices and tiny […]

In an effort to clean up some of the clutter (of frames!) in our apartment I decided to finally tackle the white expanse that was our guest room. I seriously had a stack hiding out behind the door. The last time they toppled to the floor after shutting the door I gave in and decided […]
