Need some motivation on that fall project?

  Fall if my favorite time to do house projects because I’m in total nesting mode for the holidays!!!!  It’s also the best time of year to do the projects that require less humidity (cabinets and garage doors).  And, you can open windows.  Have a paint party.  Paint during football games, etc! So in honor […]

WOW! You all freaked out over this island!

Last week I posted a few pictures of this island that the Magic Brush girls were working on to my Facebook page and you all went ga-ga! I know.  They did an amazing job on this island, didn’t they?   This finish is the same one we do over and over and over, BUT normally we glaze in clean […]

My bath curtain. My bronze truffle cabinets. My lack of sewing skills.

  On Monday I blogged about the new bath caddy that the amazing Mr. Magic made for me.  It’s gorgeous and perfect and ONLY LOOKS THAT GOOD WHEN I HAVE IT STAGED FOR PICTURES.  Lol.  The rest of the time I am wrangling Ava’s toys off of it (have you seen the Ken and Barbie pictures??). Many […]

Bath CADDY? Bath SHELF? Bath TRAY? Toy holder??????

A while back I mentioned to Mr. Magic that I would LOVE to have a bath caddy or bath tray made to go over our bathtub.  Because he is amazing at interpreting my “hints” as what they really are…. “requests”, he made it happen.  But I was a little shocked at how!  He may be genius!  I […]

So anyhoo, […]

My nearly white entryway table. A tutorial.

  If you follow my Magic Brush Facebook page, you’ll know that I recently repainted my entryway table to look like the picture above.  I know, I know. It’s almost white.  And I thought I was allergic to white.

When a painter is picking a new paint color….

  Around Christmas time of this year, I decided I was over all of the gold paint in my house.  And by “over it”, I mean….. I wanted it gone like yesterday. So I decided I wanted to repaint the walls in all of the common rooms of my house. But wall color is REALLY a […]
