Entry Dresser Rehab

November 15, 2013

So, one of the final pieces from my epic hernia thrift furniture haul was a beat up old dresser I found for $30. I picked it up to potentially go in our laundry room as a catch-all for storage, but I fell in love with it’s original hardware, and decided it was far to pretty […]

Painting Without Pants: The Living Room & Bedroom Reveal

October 29, 2013

Remember the television console that almost killed me? Thanks to copious amounts of help from Andy and my mom, I was able to finish it, but out of principal, I gave it the silent treatment the whole entire time. It actually wasn’t the only thing I purchased that day. I also left with a headboard […]

How To Assemble Furniture

September 19, 2013

Yesterday I tried to put together a television console we had purchased for the play room. Nothing fancy, just an Ikea clearance item we picked up a few weeks ago that I was tired of Andy giving me the annoyed face about every time he tripped over the heavy box going out to the garage. […]

Art & Tank Tops Make Me Smile

August 14, 2013

I’m working on a bit of a creative project this week, which usually means stress. Something I do not deal with well and usually translates to scenarios like… Brittany eats all the food. Brittany stays up all night writing a Jerry Maguire manifesto. Brittany googles religious cults. Brittany cuts her own bangs.  But I figured […]

March 13, 2013

This weekend we put a fridge in our garage. We have a garage fridge. Exciting, right? Okay just stay with me here, I have a point, let me muddle about to get there a sec. We put a fridge in our garage… and then I had an emotional breakdown. See? There’s the hook you were […]

Refinished

October 4, 2012

Where have I been? Oh you know, making furniture. Like Jesus. So, as you may remember, I’ve been a bit of a garage sale whore lately, hunting down some great wood pieces to refinish and introduce into my home in a way that says, hi, I’m super eclectic and artsy. Like if Zoe Dechanel and […]

The Art of Garage Sales

September 21, 2012

I feel like my personalities change with the seasons. Like, in the spring, Andy knows it’s time for Self-Reflective Brittany who wants to do things like try out a new religion or host an exchange student. I’m pretty sure Jesus was reborn during this time, so I’m like, let’s start meditating and opening our home […]

The Family Closet

June 19, 2012

This weekend I have been coping with weird feelings. Nesting feelings, if you will. Without the whole fetus mess, obviously. I can make that statement confidentially because I bought one of those at-home doppler things my last pregnancy, and I use it occasionally when I think I have a tapeworm. Last Friday I had a […]

Two Parties, One Hangover

May 7, 2012

There are two ways to look at this weekend. I’m either a genius, or the stupidest person on the planet. Andy feels like it’s the latter, but I’d like to think it’s a tie. April, in general, is a super bad month for us. We were all born in April, save for Jude, whose birthday […]
