This Surprise Bouquet Of Homemade Valentine's Day Cookie Pops Made Our Day


Earlier today, Lisa and I were amid our typical weekend morning routine. I was in the home office. Lisa had already made and served breakfast to our kids. She was frying bacon when we heard a knock on our side door.

Happiness Is Homemade


Remember the DIY chalkboard wall that we made last weekend? The framed for the chalkboard was made from old pallet wood that Lisa got her hands on last Summer. She took it apart, cut it down to size, sanded it, and distressed the pieces after I painted them.

We Are Officially Done With The Interior Painting


This photo accompanied a blog column that I published on New Year's Eve. It was the day I cleared the bathroom and started priming the walls. The bathroom was not a room that we had planned on painting, however, despite decorating our bathroom and replacing the sliding glass shower door with a decorative shower curtain, the pale gray still made it look industrial.

Our Bodacious Framed Chalkboard Wall Is Finished


I don't usually post the "after" photo first, but in this case, I did. To back up a bit, back in November, we finished painting our hallway and entryway. For most of both areas, we had decor for the walls. That includes the DIY wall mounted coat rack that we hung up on Friday.

Our Neglected Coat Rack Finally Came To Life


A few days ago, I mentioned that I was finally going to give our neglected coat rack a makeover. It's been sitting in the Bodacious DIY Dog Mom Workshop for over a year. The original plan was to give it a makeover and offer it as an 'up for grabs" item.

Willa Is A Sneaky Lil' Girl


We added a second dog bed to our home office. They're up against the wall beside my desk. Most of the time, Lobo and Willa will nap there. Sophie will join them occasionally although she prefers the dining room dog bed or sofa. Coco loves to nap on our bed or the sofa. Most days, this is typically the scene.

We Are Going To Do A Thing This Weekend...


I am almost finished with tackling a makeover for a neglected shabby coat rack in the Bodacious DIY Dog Mom Workshop. I'm not one to work on a single thing at a time. So. There is something else happening. A fun project. A project that we will be working on over the weekend.
