Dresser Makeover and Pumpkin Centerpieces

11 Oct img_2652


Read about how I gave this mid century dresser a much needed face lift and also a quick how-to, for easy and gorgeous pumpkin centerpieces. If you aren’t a Kitsap Sun subscriber, here are a few photos of both projects to enjoy and perhaps, inspire you!




Creating a Central Work Station

11 Aug IMG_2385


Last Sunday, my monthly column for the Kitsap Sun was about how I created an office workstation in my dining room. After months of dealing with piles and clutter and facing the fact that my basement office nook was not useful to me, I finally took stock of my needs and made a spot to work right in the middle of the action! Subscribers can read how here, but for those of you don’t- some photos of what I did to make it happen!


Front Porch Living Room

My July feature for the Kitsap Sun details the process Kim and I used to transform her non-descript front porch into a beautiful outdoor living space. First we created a floor plan and color palette after discussing her needs and wants. Then we found inspiration on Pinterest and came up with four DIY projects that would add personality on a budget. After Kim went shopping and completed her projects, we pulled it all together in a most satisfactory way!
