Might Be In Over My Head…Maybe?

Do it yourself

Refinishing and Redesigning Living Room Side Tables www.wifemomhouseohmy.comMy living room makeover is a slow but steady process. Its a complete overhaul with built-ins being added, a fireplace wall instillation, painting cathedral ceilings, crafting new curtains, reupholstering chairs, and refinishing tables. Between the list of projects and the cost of projects, we are in it for the long haul. And for this next step in the remodel, I… Continue reading

Install a dining room light www.wifemomhouseohmy.comIn our dining room, we have a light fixture that screamed 80s and FIX ME! The imitation candle light fixtures were chipping, the shades had seen better days and in reality I am not a fan of brass/gold.

So here is how my cabinet adventure started…I did… Continue reading

Every project has a beginning and in my mind the beginning always starts with an idea or as I prefer Inspiration. Inspiration is always followed by planning. However, in the case of my kitchen, my temporary dream kitchen started with desperation rather than inspiration. But with some help from my favorite design show, I stepped up to the bar and… Continue reading

Most of us dream of the day we will own our own home…the fun of building something that is truly ours, branding it with our own sense of style.
