Where I Blog

small Office in dinign room

Good evening everyone,
I hope you are doing great, it’s been a while since I posted and I’ve been a little bit less active on social media lately but I’m back now.
Thank you so much to those of you who reached out to me during these last two weeks and noticed my absenteeism. I have been dealing with some health issues, which I am not ready to share at this moment. I am recuperating well.
When I started writing this post, I didn’t know how I should name it, I decided to go with ‘where I blog’ because I am about to show you my new little nook I made for myself in our …

Dining Room Makeover and ORC challenge week 6

Dining Room

Hello everyone,
we are finally here, the day I get to give you a final tour of this small space and the pieces of furniture I decided to keep: week 6 of the ORC challenge.
Thank you so much for stopping by week after week to see how everything was progressing and for your feedback.
I can’t believe how indecisive I’ve been but I’m happy with the results, since I did it with almost no budget. No major …

Dining Room Makeover and ORC challenge week 5

white and black light for the dining room

Hi everyone,
it’s now week 5 of the ORC challenge and believe it or not I still have yet to decide on so many things.
I’m terrible at this, every week I keep changing my mind about the décor of this space and about which pieces of furniture I want to keep or toss aside. Do you remember the ‘inspiration’ pictures I posted weeks ago? What happened with those you may ask. Well, I think it’s the white sectional that blindsided me.
I would also love to …

Dining Room Makeover update and ORC week 4

gold white black dining room getting makeover soon

Hello everyone,
I can’t believe we are already on week 4 of the ORC challenge. It’s incredible how fast time flies. So, here is another update on how our small dining room is coming together.
At week 4, I’m still undecided on the layout of this space. Friends, I need your help. I took pictures of the space with the white sectional (remember my ORC week 3 post) and pictures …

Dude, where’s my pantry?

baking station kitchen aid processor kitchen aid blender and baking items

That’s probably what Nate was thinking since I removed my pantry from the dining room, he used to love playing with those baskets
Happy Friday everyone,
aren’t you glad the weekend is finally here? I am. Lots of things to do around the house these next few days. I have to continue working on my “ORC” challenge.
Remember, I mentioned in my last post that I removed my pantry from the dining room? Don’t you wonder where I put all those items that filled 3 entire bookcases? Well, they have a new home but before we go any further I want to let you know that this …

Dining Room Makeover small projects and ORC week 3

dining room soon getting a makeover

Good day everyone,
hope you are doing great, I know it’s been a while since my last post but glad to be here today. I’ve been baking a lot these last few days (note to self: pick up more butter this week). I’ve also been meaning to share with you a delicious and super easy “chocolate” dessert but I didn’t take any pictures of it and it didn’t last in our house very long. I might give it a try again soon and if I do I will make sure to share it with you.
I also missed last week’s one room challenge post. I didn’t want to miss it again this week so I took time to write this post after Nate went to bed late in the evening. You might also notice the poor quality of my pictures this week, I didn’t have the camera …

Updates living room fall halloween decor

Happy Friday everyone,
hope you are well, we’ve been a little bit busy here cleaning the dining room and kitchen, I am getting rid of things that I don’t need or want anymore.
Sorry, in advance but the changes that are coming might shock some of you. Ok, I’m just kidding but I know that many of you don’t want me to get rid of my pantry but I just might. The DIY’er in me is screaming for a change.
Have you heard about “THE KITCHN CURE FALL” from Apartment Therapy’s (thekitchn.com), it’s another challenge that I …

Dining Room Makeover Ideas and ORC week 1

dining room makeover ideas

Hello everyone,
have you heard about the ORC?
the ORC is the One Room Challenge created by the lovely Linda from the Calling it Home blog. I fell in love with Linda’s blog earlier this year when she transformed her entrance beautifully.
The challenge is to transform 1 room in 6 weeks from start to finish. We will be able to see how Linda along with 19 other bloggers transform a room and that’s not all, she was kind enough to invite us all to participate by linking up our rooms every Wednesday for the next 6 weeks…

Living Room ready for Fall

Fall Living Room Final Reveal

Hello everyone,
How are you doing? Hope you are having a great week!
I’m glad to have finally taken the pictures of our living room and get to share them with you today. You might have noticed from my previous post that I choose to decorate it with the colors white, black, blue, gray and because Fall will soon be here I added gold and orange to the mix.
Before you start looking at the pictures I want to let you know that there …

Garage sale finds

Garage Sale find transformed sanded chair for 5 dollars only

Hi everyone,
I hope you are all having a great week, we have been busy around the house and hubby has been busy cleaning our yard. I’m a bit nervous because this afternoon I have a dentist appointment and I always get scared going to the dentist. Wish me luck.
I’ve been meaning to post about the garage sale finds since last weekend but I had not been able to. Glad I took some time today to write …

New 2014 IKEA catalog is finally here

IKEA Stockholm collection for my living room

Good evening everyone!
Hope you are all having a wonderful week!
We have been busy playing outside, taking Nate to the park and making sure he enjoys the lovely weather we are having around here.
Do you remember that last year back in August, I posted about the 2013 IKEA catalog and about the items that caught my eye? Well, now the 2014 IKEA catalog has finally arrived here in …

Before and After Kitchen Renovation Tour

Kitchen Renovation Tour Before and After pictures

Good Morning everyone,
I hope you are enjoying your weekend, we are relaxing, just watched a couple of episodes of ‘Buffy the vampire slayer’ and of ‘Angel’ on Netflix. Yep! We are really living it up over here. Nate was bored, he was asking for ‘scoobydoo’, it sounded more like ‘soubidoo’ but we understood him, so instead of watching more TV we went outside to play with him in the yard.
Last month, my friend Alex over at northstory posted about her basement renovation and I …

My ‘Not So’ Living Room

Living Room with white IKEA sofa and white rug

Hello everyone,
I hope you enjoyed your weekend!
I’ve been busy all afternoon working on trying to fix a technical issue on my blog. Now that we just finished having supper I am finally taking time to write. Today’s post is a little different because unlike other posts where I bring you DIY’s that I am excited about, this one is about my inability to decorate my living room. I had another project and post prepared for you today but I had an overwhelming need to share this with you instead.
We’ve been living in our house for 3 years now and I have not yet been able to …

Choosing a new kitchen backsplash

backsplash

OK, I know, I’ve mentioned this many times before in my tweets, we are having a complete kitchen and living room renovation in our tiny townhouse.
The renovation should be over very soon, I’m at the point, where I can’t wait to see the final result, but we still need to wait a couple of more days to see it. Once, this renovation will be over, I will be sharing my pictures and
