Rustic Meets Chic

17 Feb
4 day long Weekend ahead of me – woo hoo!!! I have lots planned!!

Tomorrow I have some projects to finish so that I can show you guys soon. I will be fixing up an old Chandelier & DIY headboard for our second bedroom, and then it will be good to go! I am also going thrift/Antique hunting with my mom on Saturday. We are gonna head to the Peterborough area and hit up Gypsy Barn, Legacy Vintage & Habitat 4 Humanity. So I will make sure to take lots of pics for you guys!

Here is a Sneak Peak of the Before…(bought the Chandelier off Kijiji for $50 :))

Oh and I forgot to mention, I got this wicked new Camera, so no more crappy quality excuses!!!!

I am a loser I know, but man I love this Nikon!!! so easy & I got a wicked deal…..

Now here is a little inspiration……Mix of Rustic & Chic


Our New Sectional :)

12 Feb

So after a long day of renting a uhaul, driving to Ikea, unpacking the couch, driving the uhaul back and then finally putting the couch together… We are exhausted lol. However, I am loving the sectional. We are sooo happy!! (Even Adam because it has met his comfort standards :))

So here is what we were working with before….

And here is what our family room looks like now!

Okay so I really need an area rug, so gonna use my pottery barn gift card and get on that this week!! I think it will really tie the room together. And then the coffee table won’t blend into the floor…

Now in the picture below you will see I have the slip-covered Chair & the wicker chair… one of the two is going to go. I have a matching wicker chair so might have them both there… Or I have this old vintage chair I would love to get slip-covered and then have a little more mismatch in the room? Just gonna have to toy with the idea and see!!

And here are a couple pictures from our day! Griffy loved riding shotgun in the Uhaul…

Well, there you have it! I am one happy girl now…. Hope you are having a good Sunday!


SOOOOOO Happy!!!!! :)

8 Feb

Okay so I am just so thrilled, and have to share the news with you!! The Leather couches are moving out and the slip-covered sectional is moving in!!!! Woo hoo!! I have wanted a slip-covered sectional for soooo long, but I was having a hard time justifying buying a new couch when ours were perfectly fine. So I thought to myself – hmm, maybe if I purge some things and sell our couches then I could make up the money for the sectional? And that is exactly what happened!!

I sold a whole bunch of things that were just cluttering up our house. EX: Wii & Rockband (just been sitting in a box in the basement) two old coach purses, a bench jacket I have never worn, 2 lamps etc.. And I made over $600 on our Buy & Sell at work 🙂 And then today sold our couches!! I am soooooo happy. And now I don’t have to feel guilty which is even better!!

Here are our current couches:

Now I have some even better news…. I also got sent a $200 gift Certificate for Pottery Barn because they accidentally messed up my wedding registry. SOOOO, that means I can also get the area rug I have been wanting!!!! Remember when I posted my inspiration for the living room? if not, here is a peak.

What a week! I cannot wait to show you guys pictures when I am done!!!


Gotta Love Ikea!

9 Dec

I ALWAYS look forward to the Ikea catalogue coming in the mail…. It is always filled with amazing room inspirations that can be re-created in your home on the cheap! And I always like doing my research before heading to their crazy packed store! Here is a little Ikea Room Inspiration for you!


Ikea’s slipcovered EKTORP Furniture is by far my favorite, I definitely need some new couches & chairs from there!

Check them out: http://www.ikea.com/ca/en/catalog/categories/series/07488/

This Daybed is perfect for a guest room or in a kids Playroom, it be used as both a comfy couch & bed for sleepovers!

Almost Friday Everybody!!! Thank goodness, because this has been a LONG week!


Our Family Room

24 Nov

As I had mentioned before, when I first moved into our house it was Bachelor Pad style. Here are some Before & After pictures of our family room, along with my future plans! hehe

Here is a picture with our Fireplace/Tv Area Before…

(Please notice my Adorable Doggy ♥ Him! and the horrific Speakers!!! haha)


My Baby ♥

GREAT NEWS!!! I just got photoshop on my mac, which means I can create inspiration boards. Although I am still learning how to do everything… here is my first board.


  1. Slip Covered Sectional – Pottery Barn
  2. Coffee Table – Pottery Barn
  3. Rug – Pottery Barn (currently on sale for $216 8X10) I really really wannttttt!!!!!
  4. Both Chairs are from Crate & Barrel

Now here is a more cost efficient sectional….. Ikea – $999I absolutely love the slip covered sectionals, not only do they look awesome but they are more functional, practical & let’s face it down right comfy. Adam & I are always trying to lay on the couch and watch a movie together… But let’s face it, we are always squished!


Since Adam is currently working on the basement, I am hoping once it is all completed we can kick the leather couches down to the man cave, and I can get the slip covered sectional for my family room on the main floor 🙂 (That’s my plan anyways lol)…

Is Friday here yet?? ughh…
