Step On It

Raise your hand if you prefer wood furniture pure and unpainted.

Raise your hand if you have no problem painting anything.

Now raise your hand if you hate stepping on Legos.

Ahhh, something we can all agree on!

Everybody knows that stepping on Legos is the worst, but Crystal at Fussy Monkey Business has developed a cure for for Steppedonanotherdamnlegoitis: this adorable play table.

Truthfully, your kids will probably still leave Legos on the floor, but at least you can have somewhere cute to throw them as you hop around howling and swearing!

Denim Delight

Denim. It’s not just for your behind anymore.  Or your vests. Or your jackets. Or your sleeveless jackets. Which, technically are vests. Ok, so denim has been worn everywhere. But has it been on the wall?

It has now, thanks to this bedroom makeover by Heather. She did a denim paint treatment on the walls, but that wasn’t even the half of it.  Everything else is equally gape-worthy. There’s a teepee with a faux campfire in there for crying out loud.

Coral of Angels

Many of you have had questions about me working with Lumber Liquidators since their big controversy hit.  I had plenty of questions myself. Don’t worry, I will be answering them as soon as I can. (I’m in Texas for spring break, in the most middle of nowhere town where the internet is still a shaky novelty). And don’t worry, there is a happy ending!  More details to come.

But today, let’s look at something pink and happy! My notes say these are coral, but this computer monitor c. 1995 is showing them as pink. You tell me.

Jen at All Things New redid this dresser into a baby changing table and the whole scene is as cute as a button.  Enjoy it while you can Jen, soon enough your baby will be tearing all of that apart, if your baby is anything like mine (an untrained monkey).

Pink? Coral? I give it two thumbs up either way.


Bre always does such sharp work.  I love the contrast of white and coral(?) here in high gloss, and check out that new knob! (insert wolf whistle).  (I have a friend who always types out a wolf whistle like this: shwitt shwew! And it always gives me pause, like … “is that a swear word?”) Anyway.

Happy Monday! Thanks so much for all your kind words about my mini bathroom makeover!  I truly appreciate it.

So what’s new with you? Did you watch the Academy Awards? I didn’t, but I did scroll through the #oscars hashtag on Instagram, just so I could see what people were wearing. I should teach a class: The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Watching the Oscars.

Don’t hate me, but I think my favorite was Solange, followed by Gwyneth and ScarJo. They were edgy but elegant, and not covered head to toe in tulle and ruffles and sequins.  I’ve made some helpful illustrations to show you my least favorites:

I mean, right? Who were your favorites? Seems like everyone always either plays it way too safe or veers into Crazytown on the Oh No She Di’int Express.


Anyway, lets get down to it.  Monday morning makeover coming your way, courtesy of Jennifer at Dimples and Tangles who has recently put the finishing touches on her daughter’s bedroom.

Before: simple and sweet, but nothing to get excited about.  Well, get ready to get excited …
