Turquoise Front Door Winter

Our Winter Home

Turquoise Front Door Winter

I took these photos several weeks ago during a small winter storm. While much of the country is measuring their snowfall in feet, this storm is hardly worth mentioning by comparison.

But it was such a pretty snow I had to take a few pics and, of course, share.

Faux Roman Shade (6)

Bonus Room Faux Roman Shades and a Semi-Tutorial

Faux Roman Shades

When Holly, a Beyond the Screen Door reader, contacted me several months ago about new window treatments for her bonus room she already has a design in mind as well as fabrics.

She wanted 4 faux roman shade valances and had already purchased three different fabrics to use. Fabrics that happened to include two shower curtains, a table cloth and one sheer curtain panel all found on clearance at Target! I love a challenge!

Recovering Pottery Barn Stools (16)

Easy Makeover/Re-Upholstery for Pottery Barn Stool

Recovering Pottery Barn Stools (16)

Recently, I shared this gorgeous living room, stunningly decorated in shades of ivory & gray, as well as the window treatments we made to dress the windows. My client, Stacy, also had two little Pottery Barn footstools she wanted recovered in the same fabric as the window treatments. Which, although it may look purple-ly plum…it’s not. It’s gray. I promise.

The process of recovering these stools was really quite easy. Hopefully, taking a look at the how-to steps shown below you’ll see just how easy and try this yourself!

Baseball Diamond Pillow & Tutorial

Baseball Diamond Pillow (4)

When my niece, Libby, told us she was using a baseball theme for her nursery decor the creative wheels started turning. What could I make for baby Cooper?

I’m not always able to make baby gifts but when I can I really enjoy the process. For Cooper I wanted to piece a baseball pillow so I began my search on Pinterest.

Nothing. Nada. I couldn’t find one quilt, one pillow, one anything that fit the idea I had in my head as well as my quilting skills.

So, I did the next best thing and made one up!

Houndstooth Roman Shade (7)

Black & White Houndstooth Roman Shade with a Twist

Houndstooth Roman Shade (7)

This little roman shade measures 23.5″ x 23.5 and is one third of three identical windows in an upstairs bedroom set aside specifically for grandsons.

Instead of a traditional flat fold roman shade my client wanted the folds to show when the shade was completely down but also wanted the shades to be functional to allow in light.

The “twist” came about as we brain stormed which method to use to make the shades cute and functional.

How to Create Rustic Poster Art – Easy & Inexpensive

Rustic Poster Art (4)

Very…v.e.r.y…slowly we’re getting my youngest daughter’s bedroom pulled back together. Early on in this process she decided to purge her room of everything she no longer wanted. This left things quite bare with only one vintage mirror making the cut to hang on her walls. We painted her room & bathroom Stonington Gray but then things slowed down to a snails pace.

Our first art project for her newly painted room is this vintage inspired poster print which we turned into Rustic Poster Art for pennies!

Elegant Family Room in Shades of Gray & Ivory

Elegant Gray & Ivory Window Treatments (3)

This home became one of my favorites the moment I walked in the door. Decorated entirely in shades of gray and ivory with wood and metal accents, the living room is stunning!

When I met with Stacy she had a specific vision in mind for her new window treatments.

It was my job to bring that vision to life.
