Old Bus Into A House

cosmic bus

Tiny homes are all the rage. They come in all shapes, sizes, are self sustaining, and fit all budgets. I have to admit, having a portable home is pretty nifty. If you aren’t in the market for buying one, there are also DIY versions. Ryan Lovelace turned a 1948 Chevy Bus into an unbelieve DIY little home.

teen bedroom ideas

Gone are the dolls and playing dress up. Our babies are growing up! They need their bedroom to reflect those changes and their emerging personality. Bedrooms need to be personal but also function; a place for entertaining friends, homework, sleeping, and social media. Let these rooms inspire you. They are amazing! (FYI some of them are nicer and bigger than my grownup room.) I hope you found something you like and more importantly, something your teen will love too!

clever remodeling

You might have to hire a contractor to make some of these remodel ideas a reality but they are so going to be worth it. Some are do-able on a budget for the incredibly handy DIYer and others might take a little saving to afford the professional help. Lucky for me, my dad is a contractor. I might be able to sweet talk him into helping me with one or two of these projects.

lace privacy

Annabel Vita is awesome and I am soooo excited to feature her today! In an ingenious move – cornflower and lace are used to transform a boring window into a lovely decorative one. This window treatment lets in natural light but still gives privacy. It is also easy to apply and easy to remove. This is really perfect for renters or for someone who needs constant change. Pretty!

clever home upgrades

The work of a homeowner is never done. There is so much to do! There are fun projects and boring ones. When I see a post like this I get so excited. I can’t wait to start! Some of these projects look challenging but they really will “upgrade” the house and give it that new feeling. There are a bunch of these that I didn’t know about (mirrored tiles, heat sensing tiles and drawers in between studs) and they are awesome.
