Craigslist Desk Makeover

Craigslist Desk Makeover

I really needed a new desk. You might remember my post last year introducing you to my closet office, where I started doing some of my real estate work when I first got my license. While it certainly was a good start back then, there was no way an “office”…
Our DIY Bathroom Vanity

Our DIY Bathroom Vanity

As you may know, when Brandon and I moved into our house, there was only one small bathroom in the back of the downstairs part of the house. When we began working on the house, we decided right from the start, besides lowering the floor, that we were going to…

DIY Closet Built-Ins

Space is a real luxury here at our house, or should I say, our ‘apartment‘ for the time being. When we redesigned the upstairs of our house, we took into account every square inch of the space and how we could make the most of it. In our bedroom, we…

Credenza Therapy

I have had an incredibly long summer.  Without getting into the nitty gritty details, I went through a very difficult season which sort of spun me into a minor depression.  So when I am depressed, I grab some dark chocolate, red wine, and begin a new project. This particular project…
