DIY Rustic Farmhouse Wood Flooring

Carpet.  Why did we ever?!  Cozy yes… but oh-so very dirty, and oh-so not a good idea for a farmhouse with fur babies! 😳 In Spring 2018 we decided that we’d like to replace the flooring in all rooms within our home that have carpet… room-by-room, year-by-year.  We were dreaming of hardwoods… realizing very quickly that… Continue reading DIY Rustic Farmhouse Wood Flooring

Antique Washstand Transformed Bedside Table

We’ve been doing a lil’ reno job in our boys’ room.  It started with fresh paint on the walls and baseboards, followed by our own DIY softwood floor install (which I’ll be blogging deets about very soon), then a tallboy dresser restoration, and last but certainly not least this antique washstand transformation! These charming pieces… Continue reading Antique Washstand Transformed Bedside Table

Tea, Dark Roast, or Both?

“What colour(s) will you transform it in Faye?” A question I not only receive frequently, I also ask myself countlessly!  Although some pieces I know instantly what colour(s) and technique(s) I’ll apply… more typically I stew and stew over what I should do.  I stand and stare at the piece, I dream about the piece,… Continue reading Tea, Dark Roast, or Both?

A Tallboy for My Tall Boy

Our boys’ bedroom was in MUCH need of a refresh!  A refresh that could very easily cost us a bundle OR cost us very little.  I prefer the latter myself, so that’s what we rolled with! 😉 I started off with giving his walls a fresh new coat of paint… Ripped out the dirty old… Continue reading A Tallboy for My Tall Boy

Play it Lil’ Sista

I’m a lil’ sista… to 2 older brothers… all 3 of us were born within a 28-month period.  Yes, apparently that’s very possible, and our parents might have been a lil’ crazy at the time… or naive, or brave… or newly in love. ❤ Being the only lil’ sista to big brothers comes with many… Continue reading Play it Lil’ Sista

A Lil’ More Room for Grace

When we embrace our imperfections, we make a little more room for grace. ❤️ My envy of others — those who seem to ‘have it all together’ is a personal struggle I continuously endure. I try so hard to accomplish many things, and consistently find myself only achieving a small portion. “What am I doing wrong?”… Continue reading A Lil’ More Room for Grace
