Backyard Reno

BACKYARD RENO! So this is one of those projects that I was super excited about! When we moved into our home, we knew that the backyard would definitely be an area that we'd want to tackle. The garden frames were the rotted 3x3's, we had about 3-4 different types of stone/cement for our walkway, we often had a mud-pit where should be grass and ...

Giving those patio cushions new life

GIVING THOSE PATIO CUSHIONS NEW LIFE! Continuing with my theme of updating our front patio, this month I decided to put my attention towards revamping our front chairs. Now if you live in BWV or anywhere similar...you may spend a lot of time on your front porch. Whether it's gathering with the neighbours or sitting out with a glass of wine while it's raining, ...
Hiding your AC unit

Hiding That Unsightly AC Unit

HIDING THAT UNSIGHTLY AC UNIT... If you've been following along, you'll know that I've completed a few little projects around the house during our time at home, all of which I'm still very happy with by the way! The dining room wall still looks amazing and the linen closet (although obviously not as organized), still makes me smile. But I've had another area of ...

Refresh that BWV Plate Rail

PLATE RAIL UPDATE! If you live in Toronto, you may be familiar with all the old trim found in our 100+ year old homes. Some include only the door trims, others chair rail and like mine, the plate rail that reaches across our dining room walls. I've always wanted to paint the wood out in my home, but feared it wouldn't turn out how ...

Linen closet makeover

LINEN CLOSET MAKEOVER When we're thinking about linen closets, let's be real, none of us are all that excited. And I get it! Exactly how excited can one be about the closet where we store our towels and sheets!? These spaces are typically messy, over stocked and quite frankly...looking a little tired! If you're anything like myself, I've moved all these items from house ...

Is a pre-approval enough?

IS A PRE-APPROVAL ENOUGH? Our market has definitely taken yet another shift, we're back in the day of multiple offers, and by multiple I don't just mean a few. I'm talking about 30-40-70 at a time! With so much activity, I can understand why buyers may be encouraged to removed any conditions they may have in their offer. Sadly, the reality is if there ...

Time to Update your Mantel Decor!

Use every little inch

Use every little inch... 2020 has been the year of ups and downs, with probably significantly more downs for all of us. We've spent way too much time at home, doing our best to come up with something else to keep us busy; be that baking, decluttering, wall-papering, painting, building...whatever! We decluttered in spring, extended our living spaces using every porch or patio we ...
