Here it is! Before and After of our master bedroom. The yellow room is before we bought the house.

Surprisingly Easy Board and Batten DIY In 12 Steps

Who wants some charm in their house?  I DO!!! So I went out there, found it, bought it and installed it [well … my hubby did, I painted it and gave instructions].  New houses now a days although beautiful, don’t have the charm that older homes have. They are missing the pretty woodwork, the arch ways and tall trees that older homes have.  When I say new homes, I mean the ones in neighborhoods, because you can have a new house with…

Put some paint on it!

Do you have a piece of furniture in the house that you just can’t seem to find the perfect place for? Have you ever thought hmmm, maybe if it was a different color it would be perfect?
