October 10th, 2013 | Posted by Becki Peckham in DIY | Home Renovation | Office - (7 Comments)

Chris and I were pondering what we were going to do about the coffee table/ottoman situation in his office. The space is small so a normal table would be far too big, but not having anything would leave the space looking bare. After hunting on Pinterest I found a few tutorials on making a table out … Read more

We get a lot of people asking: “How much of your house is done? What do you have left?” For some reason it makes me think of this video. Don’t ask. Anyway, it’s hard to give an exact answer to those questions because we have a bunch of rooms that are only missing small things … Read more


Two years ago if you walked up to our house it would have been evident that old people lived there (no offence if you’re reading this, former owners). White, turquoise and rust red were the colours used on the exterior of the house. Now normally I am a fan of turquoise, but in this case … Read more


Here in Newfoundland our summers are short and not the warmest. Having an outdoor living space is amazing for those two or three good months, but is it worth spending all the money on a space when it’s not useable for most of the year? Outdoor heaters, fire pits and fireplaces extend the use of outdoor spaces … Read more

A huge bonus in this house was having the office on the main level, away from the living area, which provides somewhat of a healthy work/life separation.

When it came to the living room, we chose all neutral colours for the walls, furniture and art and then added splashes … Read more


Accent walls are a deadly way to add interest to a room. The simplest way to create an accent wall is to paint one wall in the room a contrasting color. Paint is the easiest and most cost effective way to make a drastic, non permanent change. Although slightly more effort, beautiful wall paper can also … Read more

Happy New Year everyone! We hope you all had a safe and happy holiday. It’s the time of year when everyone is coming up with their New Years resolutions. I have set a few for myself. One is something on almost everyone’s list, eat healthier and exercise more. One of my main resolutions, however, is … Read more


Christmas and birthday cards are frigging expensive! The last few years I have been making my own using scrapbooking paper. You can pick this up at Michael’s, Winners or Walmart and most times they come in a large pad with a variety of patterns. These are easy, inexpensive and YOU made them so they’re special! … Read more
