Six weeks of painting, building, creating, sewing, cleaning, styling, shooting, writing, editing, posting, and cheerleading have come to an end.
If you’re finding me through the One Room Challenge, welcome to my home on the internet! I’m Avery and I live in a charming 1910 Craftsman style home in rural Iowa with my husband. You can learn more about me here, and see some of my previous design work in my kitchen, and my Fall 2018 One Room Challenge:…
This week, I'll be sharing about my two biggest projects- the DIY bed swing and the painted concrete floors!
This week, I saw monumental progress in my space through the power of paint. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Paint is the easiest and cheapest way to completely transform a space.
I'm showing you my step-by-step process to make a high-end, low-budget DIY tree stump coffee table.
For this round of the One Room Challenge, I will be transforming our sunroom! This space has incredible potential, and will be a dream come true once it is given a little love (and a lot of white paint). Read on to see my design plan!
Week Six is here and I am equal parts giddy, proud, and exhausted. This was my first experience with the One Room Challenge, and I am glad we decided to jump in and give it a shot!
This week, I'm adding character and vintage charm to the classic Ikea Tarva dresser.
Have you ever heard the term, "chinoiserie"? I hadn't until this week. If you asked me what "chinoiserie" was before I knew, I probably would've guessed that it was a French boutique that sells either lingerie or baked goods. Or both. I don't know. The French have some pretty crazy boutiques. I learned what "chinoiserie" was this week, and it is my new favorite thing that has also always been my favorite thing. Read on to see what it means (and no, it isn't lingerie or pastries!)
I said last week that the accent wall made such a difference that I would be happy to stop there and call it good. But I am so glad I kept going, because the new pillows and artwork add so much personality and warmth!
