Party of Five

Well, I think I’ve kept y’all waiting long enough. Who wants to hear about the new addition? (insert drumroll) It’s a… ....more

Ten home improvement projects I would do again

Well, I didn’t really expect to be sitting around my house writing posts this week, but alas, here I am…41 weeks pregnant. According to the doctor there are no signs that I will go into labor in the next week, so he scheduled me for an induction on Wednesday if nothing happens before then. I’m praying it doesn’t come to that though, because I...more

Ten home improvement projects I won’t be repeating

So today is my official due date. This baby is fully cooked, I’m horribly uncomfortable, and the doctor said at my appointment on Tuesday that it doesn’t look like this kid is planning to come anytime soon. Darn my comfortable uterus! ...more

Top Ten Must-Haves for the Next House

We’re nearing the final stages of designing our new house (almost to the blueprints stage!) and I’ve spent the last couple months reflecting on this house, thinking about what we’ve messed up, what we love, and what we would change. I have a couple of posts coming up relating to all that, and today is the first. My list is actually much, MUCH longer than this (I’m such a pain), but for the sake of time and everyone’s sanity I’m going to keep all my lists down to top ten lists ....more

Rustic Glam Wall Clock

For years now Adam and I have had this ridiculous bedtime routine. We put the kids to bed, and after that we pretty much just veg on the couch, snack, talk, and binge watching whatever we are currently binge watching on Netflix. Then comes that time where it’s starting to get late, and Adam asks me “what time is it?” He’s super responsible at bedtime and goes to sleep at a completely reasonable time….me not he other hand, not so much ....more

We bought land!

Back in October I wrote a post about how we have been land hunting. Our current house was never intended to be our forever home, it was always a place we planned to live in for five or six years, fix up (and make all our DIY mistakes on, if that’s possible), sell, and move on. We’ve owned this house for almost seven years now, and we are ready for the next adventure ....more

Kids Room Toy Shelf (an organized masterpiece)

Two things before I dive into all the DIY goodness… 1) Thank you for all the love and support on my last post about Adam’s accident. He is doing well, a little better every day. He is up and around the house now, and even getting out a bit ....more

Adam’s Accident + 36 Week Pregnancy Update

Have you ever heard the saying “If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans”? Well I had plans. I have about a month left till this baby is due and I’ve been trying to finish up the guest room, boy’s room, and baby prep in the next month so that I can relax with my newborn and not have a big to-do list ....more

Mason Jar Pendant Light

You know those projects that should be really easy…the ones that should take you less than an hour but end up being a complete time suck and turn out NOTHING like you had planned? Yeah, me neither. Never happens ....more

Introducing Paint-A-Pillow + A Giveaway

Many of you know that Cutting Edge Stencils is a sponsor of Domestic Imperfection. It all started when I won one of their stencils in a giveaway and used it to create the paisley stenciled table, which became the project that got my blog off the ground. I have worked with Cutting Edge ever since (almost three years!), they are a fantastic company and my biggest cheerleader ....more
