Displaying Running Medals

Pin It!
Meet my beautiful friend & client Andrea. She even looks good when she is running! She is very fit & she runs in a lot of races.
When I first saw Andrea's home office, I was taken with all her colorful medals. The only problem? They were clanging around on the knobs of her office doors. I knew we could do better to preserve & display her beautiful medals. We took them to the framer & we were really pleased with the way the project turned out. BUT each frame was about $350. The original post here at Honey I'm Home gets A LOT of attention, so I thought I'd come up with a less expensive framing option to present on the TV show Studio 5.{Click the blue bar below to read more.}

Refinishing A Coffee Table

Pin It!
When we moved, it was time for some new furniture in the family room. We purchased a sofa & love seat, but that's where funding ran out! So I decided to refurbish our "old faithful" coffee table. I've painted quite a few pieces of wood furniture, but refinishing is torture a lot more work. {Click here to see my refinished bathroom cabinet}.

Navy Blue Bathroom

Pin It!
I'm so excited that my navy blue bathroom is finished. This is one of the few rooms I've been able to design from the ground up - from the flooring to the tile -  to the paint & accessories. I got almost everything I wanted. {Please click the blue bar below to see more.}

Local Yocal - Tubing Down the Provo River

Pin It!
Since we live in such a wonderful place - I enjoy exploring some of the fun things to do in my own back yard. Once in a while I like to share a favorite place with you {just in case you're new to the area - or if you haven't discovered my favs}.

This one has been on my wish list for a LONG time! My girlfriends have started an annual tradition of tubing down the Provo River & I was able to join them this year. {Click on the blue bar below to read more}.

The Waterlogue App

Pin It!
Have you tried the Waterlogue App? It's a photo editing tool that makes photos look like watercolor paintings. Here are two pictures that worked well for me . . .

These three boys are my great nephews. We staged the picture of them walking down the path. (Which is great because you can't see that one of them is crying. Ha ha!) Here's the picture before I applied the Waterlogue App . . .

Making Baby Gifts With Diapers on Studio 5

Pin It!
Me on the set with the adorable & talented Brooke Walker
Once in a while, I help with or host a baby shower. Since everyone can use diapers and they always seem to be a welcome gift - I often make something creative out of them to dress up the presentation. While there is nothing wrong with simply giving a box of diapers, I get a kick out of adding a little pizzazz. Then, the gift also makes a great shower decoration as well. {Click on the blue arrow below to read more!}

4th of July Porch Decor

Pin It!
Yay! It's summertime. During the month of July there are a lot of celebrations around here. I've always wanted to deck out my house with patriotic bunting & the porch on the new house is the perfect place to do it. 
{Have you tried the Waterlogue app? I love this "watercolor" version of my house photo}

The bunting is hung with command hooks & zip ties. We do get a bit of wind on occasion & I didn't want anything flying away.

Highlights from the Utah Valley Parade of Homes 2016

Pin It!
My buddy Toni {from Design Dazzle} & I enjoyed touring a few of the homes in the 2016 Utah Valley parade. We have a tendency to go to the houses that are closer to our neck of the woods - Lehi, Alpine & Highland. The houses were bright with nice floor plans, incredible windows & very high ceilings. I noticed some trends this year that I wanted to share with you.
