Far from being the leafy path to serenity, self help became the greasy downhill slide into insanity. I didn't snap out of it until I realized I was wrapping my legs in seaweed and singing to the seals as part of a Loon Point yoga-thin.
I've done some imbecilic things in my life but nothing tops trying to build my own website without professional help. What I thought would be a fun weekend project made me go gray in places I didn't know I had hair.
In order to maximize the space, we broke into the old phone nook on the other side of the wall which gave us two extra feet. Then, with the combo of shelves, hampers, hooks and rods, our closets are ready to be filled back up again... in a more organized fashion this time.
In episode 13 we begin to redo a room that is extremely important: the closet. This is where my shoes and clothes will reside, and I want them to fe...
Where do you go for gems?! The junkyard of course! We ended up finding some great pieces too: a mirror, two bronze jugs, an old bar marquee that say's "Jo's Place", and a vintage gum ball machine.
We put up our chandelier, picked out a wallpaper to put up on our ceiling, refinished a built-in cabinet and turned it into our bar, caged a plant, and got a TEMPORARY dining table.
OMG we FINISHED our living room! In this episode we reveal our chairs after having them reupholstered, fill in our book shelves, and DIY some paper mâchéd animal heads with gold and copper leaf.
In this episode we look at some swatches, get our furniture moved in, do the simplest OMG DIY yet and start thinking about ideas for part two!

In OMG We Bought A House! Episode 12, we take the decorating outdoors! For mine and Joey's 7th anniversary we decided theres no better place to cel...
Our dining room is officially finished, and we could not be more excited to reveal the finished product. From our magical moon-surface-inspired ceiling to our vintage marquee sign, this room has the perfect eclectic and chic vibe that Joey and I adore.
Joey's parents wanted to come visit and see our first house so we had to quickly get the guest room guest-ready! Watch the video above to see the entire transformation including how we spruced up a thrift store dresser in a matter of hours.
The inset alcove or altar, as we're calling it, is just begging for a whimsical DIY project. The mantle is the first thing you see when you walk in our front door so it's the perfect place to establish the design for the overall house.
Don't know much about geometry. But I do know this: Summer = Vacation. It's a simple algebraic equation.
When I was younger and a great deal more green behind the ears, a very successful and wise gentleman offered me this bit of advice. He said, "When the going gets tough, the tough get going!"
Who was that girl we were with anyway, she was weird. I always say, you know how I always say that people with multicolor hair are trying to make statements with words they were too dumb to learn in school -- that girl.
