Mid Century Reupholstery Progress!

Mid Century Modern Couch Reupholstery Update! I know it’s been a bit of time since I’ve shared our progress.  Honestly we haven’t worked on it as much as we thought we would be able to.  The challenge is great, but we’re banking on the rewards  when we’re done!  Don’t remember the original?  Check it out here when we first started this project.  It’s a couch from my Husband’s Grandma’s home years ago.  We’ve had it in our basement for years {Read More}

Valentine’s Hoop Art

Here’s a little something my daughter helped me with the other afternoon.  She loves to help push down the sewing foot & pick out fun stitches.  Both kids love to push the buttons on the machines.  I picked out scraps of minky fabric, sewed pieces, cut out shapes and simply sewed squiggly lines across for texture.  My daughter claimed them for her room! Do you decorate for the holidays/seasons?

Color Inspiration 2012

I love color, and with that comes my desire to paint.  I don’t know if it has to do with the fact that I’m trying to cover up toddler fingerprints or that my taste changes so fast!  Every month I get House Beautiful in the mailbox, sit down and dog ear page after page with my cup of decaf coffee.  Some people look at those magazines and find themselves angry about the fact that they “don’t have” or “can’t have”…..I sit {Read More}

Christmas Decor

This year we are in the middle of redecorating after finishing off a room in the basement.  This leaves me re-thinking where I put things and how I decorate for Christmas.  Having little kids and the fact that I purged too much stuff for a garage sale (does anyone else do that?) limits my decorations a bit.Avoiding shots of laundry baskets (hey, let’s be real here.  My house is lived in all day 😉 here’s what I have so far…. {Read More}

Living Room in Process!

My husband finished a room in the basement so most of our living room furniture went down there with the tv and cozy couch and chair  & **Woo-hoo** all of the toys!  6 weeks ago if you just dropped by without calling you would have seen clean laundry in stacks on the couch and toys all over (and possibly me in my pajamas). Well, since then I fold the laundry in the basement near the washer and dryer!  (Although it {Read More}

My “Fancy” Dreams…

As you know, one of my pet projects this month has left my sewing machine collecting dust.  My couch re-do is calling my name.  I wanted to share with you my inspiration for the fabric I chose.  I didn’t go quite as bold, but it’s actually kind of a cross between the couch and chair.  The chair – can I say it again!?  THE CHAIR.  Yes, that’s been “tickling my fancy” this week.  I’ll share my fabric pick for my {Read More}

Kitchen upgrades

You may have seen the kitchen chair re-do the other day…. www.geekyandsassy.com to go along with that I too some old pictures out of frames I didn’t like and put in some of the same Outside Oslo print! www.geekyandsassy.com I threw a new pillow cover on a pillow and viola!  A little something different in my kitchen!  What are some fast, easy changes you make in your home? 

Inspiration Workshop – Living Room Mid-Century Love

Geeky&Sassy Instagram – find me on there =) I’m linking up with Gussy’s Inspiration Workshop this week on our living room.  I love to change things in our house.  We have a unique style, we like what we like and love to get inspiration from others and well as inspire others to think outside of the box.  On our wall we have hung a swinging door from my Aunt and Uncle’s kitchen in the late 70s, early 80s.  We spray {Read More}
