A Bump In The Bedroom…..

Hello Charming friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful patriotic weekend. The weather was perfect here....but we weren't able to enjoy it because we're still working our butts off -;  The exterior painting is about 95% done, and the gardens are in a bad need of  weeding.  If you find yourself with some extra […]

Our Master Bedroom Reveal

Our master bedroom remodel took over 3 years to complete and about that long to finally share our master bedroom reveal today.....seriously this was the toughest task we took on in so many different ways. Last August I shared a Sneak Peak intending to do a reveal right after.  But I had to go back […]

Master Bedroom Construction Phase

Last Sunday I shared our master bedroom's inspiration photo and the demolition phase, if you haven't seen it click here. It took three years to complete our bedroom remodel and a whole lot of hard work. This morning I'm sharing the Construction Phase

Master Bedroom Demolition Phase

Its really been a long time coming to share our Master Bedroom remodel.  The remodel began nearly three years ago, just before I was sick and had surgery.  Today I'm sharing the master bedroom demolition phase. We moved our mattresses into my dressing room during the construction, thinking it would only be for three months, […]

The Deck Reveal!

The Deck Reveal

Well it's been a loooooooooong time coming! The deck reveal is finally being shared! It started when we decided to cover the patio--we had a Pergola built in 1999-- and enjoyed it so much, here.  But with Illinois weather, ever changing, we wanted to be able to sit outdoors rain or shine!  Our deck is […]

Harriet Hoosier On Our Deck

Hoosier Cabinet

Before our kitchen was remodeled Harriet Hoosier was a vital piece. She provided a great deal of storage in our dysfunctional layout. To be honest it always pains me to share this photo...cause it's really u.g.l.y! Prepare yourself for ugliness... OK, take a few minutes to compose yourselves...I know it was quite a shock!  If […]

Our Deck Remodel

I hope all of you had a really nice Labor day weekend.  We laid low pretty much but did have some friends over for dinner Saturday night. I didn't go out much because it's been so humid and heavy outside. I don't do humid....it completely depletes me of all energy! The Charmer's deck was added […]

Master Bedroom Remodel Sneak Peak

Kitchen Remodel Sneak Peak

I never thought this day would ever come! Our Master Bedroom remodel began over three years ago.  We ran into construction problems, put it to the back burner, and slept in my dressing room, on the floor, far longer that we should have. It's a milestone having the master bedroom completed, so many negatives behind […]

You might not know that Mr. Charmer and I have been in the process of doing a kitchen updo!   A major renovation was done several years back but it was time for a quick new look. Doing this project I've realized updo's are never quick and become more involved than planned. Last week I shared […]

Another Two Toned Buffet!

1929 charmer

Smiles Everyone, About two weeks ago I shared our new Two Toned Buffet,  I also mentioned that there was another buffet sitting in the garage! I just love buffets, and when I spot a cutey I just can't help myself. But my home isn't big enough to hold two, so there was only one thing […]
