My husband and I have decided to add ANOTHER project to our daily lives...and in the midst of having our second daughter this fall! What are we thinking?! We love working together, what can I say!
Dusty has been doing some beautiful woodwork for me over the last few years and we have had so many compliments on the pieces from friends and clients that we decided to start building more pieces and get them out to the public for purchase.
Here are a few of the pieces that we (HE) are spitting out! All can be customized and shipped to your specified location of choice.
There will be more coming in the next few months...custom pillows and lamps should make their debut this summer...fingers crossed! Some of the fabric options and rough pictures are available below!
Enjoy and May God Bless You!
Below are upcoming designs that we are working on and fabric options for all of the pillows coming soon!

Last year we decided to purchase a lot a littler further south so that we could cut our commuting time down a bit. We found a beautiful 1 acre lot in the quaint little town of Madison, GA.
I have spent the last year designing the floor plan and working on all of the details and now we are ready to get started...especially since we sold our home by owner in THREE days!!
I am so excited to get started on this home! We will miss our sweet little house in Cedar Creek, but are looking forward to being able to spend more time together as a family.
Please join us on our journey, I'll try to be better about keeping my postings up to date...things have changed a bit with an 21 month old keeping us busy!
Here is the front elevation, floor plan and some of my inspiration photos and selected finishes...
After four long years, failed fertility treatments and lots and lots of praying, I am getting to design and decorate my own child's nursery!
We found out in February that we are expecting our first little one in October and I am still pinching myself every time I start to think about this.
Being and interior designer made me start thinking about the nursery the second after I took the test...wall color, furniture, lighting, fabrics and accents started to fill my head.
I wanted to create a soft and inviting environment with a bohemian/world traveler flair and a splash of color in the accents...here is where I am so far.
I will post the final pictures after all is complete!
Hopefully I'll be able to get this all done in time!
Wall color: Sherwin Williams- Agreeable Gray
Crib: Pottery Barn- Catalina Cottage Crib in Espresso
Dresser/Changing Table: Craigslist Find (will refinish)
Faux Finish for Dresser: Distressed Gray

Last October, construction began on an Ophthalmology office that I had been working on designing for several months prior.
We had taken an older building, completely gutted it and added a new addition to create a new facade and a larger footprint, in addition to the complete overhaul of all of the finishes and fixtures. Here are some of the pictures from during construction and after the installation of furniture and accessories.
Stay tuned because I have a more and exciting things coming soon!
We have been in our home for just over three years now and it has truly been a labor of love to restore it. What has amazed me more than anything is the fact that we have done EVERYTHING for under $30,000...and yes, that includes new appliances and the new kitchen! It CAN be done!
I have posted about our home a few times prior to this post but I still like to keep it fresh in my mind as it serves for great motivation to help us finish it!! We still have a LONG way to go but we are loving every minute.
Here are a few before and after images. I promise to post photos of the kitchen soon!! There are a couple of teasers though!
Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy!

new kitchen in the making. Please don't mind the drying dishes on the counter. :)
Textured walls add depth, warmth and interest. Anything from glass tile to wood panels and veneer brick can be added to any wall to create a high-end look...for not a ton of money!
It is a huge trend because of the availability of new products, easy installation and price. Why not? So much better looking than just plain paint!
Below are some of my favorite images of just such wall treatments. I am installing some texture on my office walls this summer!! Stay tuned!
I have finished two master bathroom remodels, two kitchen remodels, two deck remodels and a screen porch, designed a doctor's office, and have spattered several other little jobs in between this winter. It has been so much fun, so rewarding and now, I am ready for more! Enjoy!
I am loving the new and colorful fabrics hitting the stores this season in preparation for the spring! Here are some of my favorites in red, white and blue...
While out of town this weekend, I had some extra time to play on the web, browsing for some furniture for our home and stumbled on this great website. If you LOVE Restoration Hardware, you will ADORE Artwood. I had a great time browsing through all of the great furniture and accessory finds.
Click on the pictures below to take you to their website.
When we moved into our home in 2010, we knew right away that the kitchen remodel would need to happen asap! Unfortunately, time flies and we both became busy...you get the idea.
As of this summer, I FINALLY got around to getting the overall floor plan designed, cabinet styles and colors determined and finishes selected for the big day...most likely this winter or next spring!
Below is a picture of the current kitchen. The wall on the left side of the picture will be knocked down to open up the space to the living room. It is a tiny 1970's kitchen with TONS of potential!
The existing pre-finished wood floors are going to be removed and replaced with a large scale tile (seen below) and run in a herringbone pattern.
I am SO EXCITED and cannot wait to get started!
