Wash and Dry Sign, and a Special Deal! - Decorchick! ®

I’m so happy to be back home from SNAP Conference, although I had the BEST time!! I can’t wait to share my recap with you all soon. But today I’m going to show you all a little sign I made for our laundry room that I love! Redecorating Above the Cabinets - Decorchick! ® Some people don’t like anything above their kitchen cabinets, and some do.

Redecorating Above the Cabinets - Decorchick! ®

I happen to like a little something up there. But what I previously had up there wasn’t working for me anymore. Here is the before (with the kitchen still painted Tobacco Road): What was bothering me about those dishes and pitchers up there is that they seemed a little old fashioned to me? A Coat Closet No More. - Decorchick! ® I am on an organizing kick.

A Coat Closet No More. - Decorchick! ®

And I like it. The other day I opened this closet we have downstairs by the powder room. Here is the bottom of the floor once I removed the coats. And here is the top of this closet. It goes up really high. And Painting Stripes on Textured Walls - Decorchick! ® I find it ironic that I’m doing a post on how to paint the perfect stripes, especially since it took me 3 times to get it right, but practice makes perfect right?

And Painting Stripes on Textured Walls - Decorchick! ®

And well, my stripes came out pretty darn perfect with our textured walls so it deserves a little attention. I need projects like this spelled out very clearly for me so I hope this tutorial helps you guys. After all, we already know I’m no expert in painting stripes. :) First thing you need to do is measure your wall from floor to ceiling.

18 Budget Kitchen Makeover Ideas - Decorchick! ®

I’m glad to be back. We had a little impromptu trip this past weekend and enjoyed being unplugged for a few days. I’ll show you some pics from our adventures later this week. But today I wanted to show you 18 amazing kitchen makeover ideas that I found! I clipped all of these from Hometalk. My Colortopia and Help With Paint Colors - Decorchick! ® I’m so excited to introduce you all to an awesome new site called My Colortopia, from the makers of Glidden.

My Colortopia and Help With Paint Colors - Decorchick! ®

You may have seen them around blogland the past few weeks because they have a great new panel of bloggers (that you all will recognize) that will be contributing their expertise on colors and how they gain their inspiration. Now, we all know I’ve had my fair (or unfair?) Share of painting mishaps around our house. I would do things backwards and try and choose a color in my head that I knew I wanted, and then tried to match it to the walls. Pegboard Organization - Decorchick! ® If you’ve been around my blog long enough, you know I love some good organization!!

And good GARAGE organization. That room gets me every time. But anyway, we did a little project recently for National Hardware, and am blown away at how easy it is to hang up peg board and attach hooks to it! Why didn’t we do this sooner?? Some Decorating with New Pillows! - Decorchick! ® I’ve gotten to freshen up a few spaces in our home recently, and what better way to do that with new pillows!

When Too Much Storage Is A Bad Thing - Decorchick! ®

Storage. We aren’t really lacking it either because I’m always trying to create it. But I am always looking for pieces of furniture that will make good storage pieces. Why? Well because I thought having TONS of storage would be a good thing. The Moment You've Been Waiting For...Our White Kitchen Makeover Reveal!! - Decorchick! ® Well today’s the day!

Finally. We have our dreamy new white kitchen and I couldn’t be more ecstatic about it. Master Bedroom Redo - Decorchick! ® *UPDATE* – This room has been redone again, so click here for the latest redo. :) Well our room is just about finished so I’m going to show it now. :) I know you probably want to see pictures first, but let me just talk a little bit…or a lot. This will be a long post, but there will be lots of pictures so hang with me. :) Sadly, I haven’t touched our room since we’ve moved here which is a little more than 1 1/2 years now. How To: Fake Wainscoting. Remember my “Difference Molding Can Make” post? If you don’t, I’ll be nice and show you the after picture again when we put up the chair rail and framed boxes… I liked it, but wanted to try something different. We have textured walls, so I was a little scared to try this, but I have seen others do board and batten and wainscoting with textured walls and it looked great.

One that comes to mind is Joy from Thrifty Parsonage Living when she did board and batten in their bedroom. Making Your Doors Pretty With Molding (and a How-to) - Decorchick! ® Hi everyone, hope you had a great weekend! July around here is a crazy busy month, but actually the whole summer has been. :) But, I am so thrilled with how this latest project I finished up last week turned out. Like, it may be one of my favorite projects to date. Remember when I had my Molding Link Party back in March? Well there was one particular project that was linked up by Dianne from The Inspired Housewife and it has been in the back of my mind to do ever since.

Check out what she did to her doors here it’s gorgeous! The New Living Room Wall! - Decorchick! ® Well our gallery wall and board and batten is done. And….we love it!! Let’s first take a look at the before picture of this wall in our living room before I show you the rest. Beautiful Moulding Ideas Made Easy - Decorchick! ® Everybody loves beautiful mouldings right?
