HOMEROOM: Master Bedroom Makeover (Part 2)

Bedroom Makeover Part 2 (8)I’ve made more progress on our master bedroom makeover and I’m so thrilled with the results so far. I previously shared the first dresser makeover here where I showed how I used textured paintable paper to turn orange wood Ikea dressers into light and bright white dressers. The next step was to replace the valance with fresh curtains, paint the remaining two dressers, figure out a solution for the headboard and freshen the rest of the room.

CELEBRATIONS: Holiday Home Tour–Dining Room

Holiday Hutch 2The holiday décor has finally started to make an appearance at my house. This year I went with the on-trend look of plaid and red for a couple of reasons. I love the look and I have loads of red knick-knacks that I could use to complete the look. My dining room hutch is usually the first piece to be decorated for every season. I love switching out the plates and server ware but almost always have a foundation of white dishes. I added the pretty black scrollwork plate at the top and a buffalo plaid scarf and the rest came together easily.

WEEKEND INSPIRATION: Back-to-School Dorm Room Ideas





If you have a college-age kid heading back to school, you may want to use some of these great ideas I’ve rounded up. A lot of the inspiration photos of dorm rooms floating around are not realistic. Dorm rooms are tiny. I have dozens of friends who’s kids left for college last year when my son did. We compared note and photos, texting back and forth. My son lucked out and his school offered dorm rooms that had a little more breathing room than most. He had his own large closet and he and his roommate shared a bathroom with the two guys in the next room. Even still, squeezing everything into a small space is a challenge. If you have a boy, these ideas will still work – just change up the color scheme.

Weekend Inspiration: Trending | Copper

Weekend Inspiration copper-001
TGIF everyone! We made it through another week – decorating, crafting, baking, cooking, sewing and more. What are you up to this weekend? I’ll be doing more spring cleaning and organizing. Plus, I’m getting ready for some business travel in June for my day job and I think a shopping trip for some new clothes might be in the schedule. Between all that, I’m thinking about how I can collect some copper items to add to my décor.

Have you noticed the copper trend lately? I used to have some great cupper mugs and I’m hoping I stored them in the attic. The problem is there are so many boxes up there, it would take me all day to find them. I love the warmth that copper pieces adds to a table, mantel or hutch so it might be worth a trip up to the dusty attic. In the meantime, enjoy these lovely copper examples.

WEEKEND INSPIRATION: Kitchen Style–What’s yours?


From one day to the next, I think I could redecorate my kitchen with any of these styles and be happy. At least for a while and then I’d redecorate again. What about you? Do you have a set style or do you like to try different looks?

HOME ROOM: Freshening the Living Room

Mohawk Carpet Living Room Decor via homework (15)I have a bad case of the organizing and freshening bug. I’ve been moving things around, decluttering and I’m eager to start on some home décor projects. I have loads of ideas but first on my list was our living room. I was lucky enough to receive a new SmartStrand Forever Clean bound carpet from Mohawk and it was just the inspiration I needed to do some additional freshening to the room.

CELEBRATIONS: A Touch of Fall from my Home



A touch of fall from my home - fall vignettes via homework | carolynshomework.com


These are just some snippets of fall from some of my projects or the styling for some of my projects. I love fall and when I went through my photos recently, I put together some of my favorite. Not everyday has to include a complicated craft or diy project to keep me inspired. Sometimes it’s something as simple as some peppercorns or moss.

I’ve rounded up some of the very best dollar store Halloween ideas. These bloggers have really raised the bar with their spooky fun.

Etceteras: A Little Eucalyptus

7-7

Every season I change up the décor on my kitchen hutch. I usually introduce a seasonal element or color depending on my mood. Sadly, this summer is getting away from me. Any grand plans for a fresh look with shells, starfish or other summer décor is slowly slipping away.

ETCETERAS: Moss & Fern Spring Decor

Moss and Fern Spring Decor via homework | carolynshomework.comThis project started off innocently enough. I bought this miniature cake stand and thought I’d add a bit of moss and eggs for spring. It doesn’t get any easier than that.

Celebrations: The Owls Have Landed {Halloween Décor}
