I forgot to tell you about our planked walls!

dark ~depressing ~ dirty
my 3 adjectives that described this room when we moved in a year ago last month

last Christmas we had painted the walls and it looked like this


a little paint, ripping up the carpet and our most recent project

::: planking the walls on either side of the fireplace :::

 completely changed the vibe of the room

and we didn’t even fill the nail holes!
we painted the planks Benjamin Moore’s Whispering Spring

in which I TOTALLY stalked Ashley and stole the color from one of her favorite’s…couldn’t help myself
and you would do the same thing!  she has a happy home!!  and I love her…and her home:)
isn’t it amazing what little projects .. over time .. can do to change the heart of a home?


what little projects do you
lurking around in your heard?

have you planked any walls?
I love it so much I am going to do my whole bedroom!

you can click here here and here for planking tutorials
and remember…a little bit at a time makes a big difference a year later!!

oh..don’t forget to follow along with us on INSTAGRAM as we connect the sacred in heart ~ home and handmade

Lemonade Makin' Mama - They’re so planky… and pretty! Someday I will have a fireplace and then I’ll be stalking your entire makeover. :)

merry Christmas sweet girl!

Ter'e Crow Lindsay - Hi my cutie,
I have disliked my island from Day one. We did change out the sink and the countertop, but I have never really liked the “shell”. I love planking. just love the look. Cannot convince my DH that it is ok to plank a new house! So, I have finally convinced him to plank the island in the kitchen. Once planked, we will decide whether to paint it room color or accent wall color. I am excited!

Then we shall decide what to plank next!

Natalie - The walls are beautiful! What a wonderful way to dress up your fireplace. I love the addition of the handmade looking star. Such a pretty way to celebrate the holidays.

Thirkellgirl - I LOVE your blue chair. It’s almost exactly like my Basset sofa that I had done in blue denim, but which is on its last legs (13 years…I got my money’s worth). I’m replacing the sofa with an Ektorp loveseat but would also like a side chair, and yours is perfect. Can you tell me about it?

Amy - I would love to know the colors of your walls and trim! Your home is lovely!

phyllis - Awesome from top to bottom! So warm and happy and fun…good job!
