An African Chic TV Room Makeover

While this room is not totally complete – we still need a great coffee table – I just couldn’t wait to share this project with you! I’ve been working on it for a while along with a formal living room that I will also share with you a little bit later. When Helen moved into her home, […]

Franca’s Living Room Makeover!

A couple of months ago, my friend Franca, from the From Playroom to Dining Room post, got in touch with me because she was ready to change the look of her living room. She wanted something that felt brighter, wintery, and very cozy since her living room at that time was a little bit of a darker space. […]

Styling Interiors With Desert Designs

I recently was tasked with helping style a room at the famous Eastern Province favorite, Desert Designs. Most people in Dhahran who like buying furniture know and love this store, but if you don’t, you have to visit. You can also check out the post I wrote about them! So this styling project was an experiment to see if it […]

Before & After: Closet Makeover

Storage is not really the biggest issue in my house… but what I DO lack though is organized storage!  I’ve realized that you can have tons of closets and storage room space, but if there aren’t shelves, storage containers, drawers, etc., to actually store what you own, it’s not really going to work well for you or your […]

Before & After: Kitchen Decluttering & Reorganizing

I recently spent quite a bit of time helping reorganize and declutter for a kitchen project, and while it was an amazing experience, it also was SUPER challenging – mainly because the kitchen is pretty small and there really wasn’t much storage space available… First off, the shelves in the pantry are quite odd. Deep, not very tall, and extended […]

From Playroom to Dining Room!

A couple of months ago, Franca came to me with a design dilemma… For the past few years her dining room has been used as an “activity space” for her children and their friends. But now that they’re older, she wanted her dining room back. So we sat down to plan out how it could be […]

Kitchen Pantry Organizing Tips

I love organizing things. While I don’t really consider it my forté, I understand and strive for that huge sense of satisfaction that comes from when you can find things and can tell how much of it you actually have! But because I’ve been avoiding this pantry for a while, I can’t tell you how many […]

Exterior Door Makeover!

I have 2 entrances to my home, and one of the entrances was just plain ugly. Luckily, I was able to change my “other” exterior door into a nice glass door. It looks beautiful and lets in a lot of light, but because this side is a little more visible to the public, a glass door wasn’t […]

Custom Made Dining Room Cabinet: BEFORE & AFTER

My first experience with getting custom made furniture in Saudi was absolutely fabulous! I had a company in Dammam, called Arabian SAS Co., make a dining room cabinet for me a couple months ago since I was having such a hard time finding EXACTLY what I wanted.

Setting Up My Yard: BEFORE & AFTER

If I had known that I was going to be starting this blogging thing, I would’ve taken lots of before and after pictures. It’s my MOST favorite part of every blog that I read! I, on the other hand, have very few pictures and most of them are after I made a few improvements to the house. […]
