DIY Farmhouse Bedroom Wall Art

Vintage Wood and Flowers  –  Perfect for Farmhouse Decor All of our beds have tall headboards as I prefer them that way, but I find it challenging to decorate the wall around the headboard.  It either looks bare or too full.  I knew I wanted  a frame that would be wide and short so that it was symmetrical to the wall space above the bed.   I had tried a 36 by 48 inch artwork…

Refinishing Hardwood Floors- What to Expect

We Hired Someone to Refinish Our Hardwood Floors The blog has been quiet for a couple of days because we are tackling some major projects, starting with hardwood floor refinishing. Our main floor is hardwood including both the front entrance foyer and the kitchen.  We purchased our home four years ago and the floors were horribly damaged.  The previous owner deducted the cost of new floors from the purchase price and we decided to live…
