Plastic Lounge Chairs Makeover

 I do not like plastic furniture. I quite dislike anything plastic. But I dislike being wasteful more. Quite a few years ago we wanted lounge chairs for the backyard. Of course I wanted teak ones. But not having much money hinders that plan. Coincidentally, I literally stumbled across these while on a walk. Someone was... Continue Reading →

Ombre Cake

This cake sort of marks an occasion. Not only was it for my daughter's 5th birthday party but it was an actual creative domestic project that I completed.  It's been a while and I'm hoping to tap back into my creative side. 2014 was one CRAZY-ASS year for me. I put Katch Studios on hold... Continue Reading →

New Master Bath!

Hey-O! Look at this - we have a completed project! The Master Bath in our home is usable and fully functional. Well... we still need to mount the tp holder that is somehow missing a part, but that's not holding us back. And we LOVE it! The photos don't do it justice because there is... Continue Reading →

Holiday Succulent Wreath

 Finally getting around to decorating for the holidays. And trying to do that with the two tornadoes (my daughters) isn't so easy.  But I managed to make a wreath. It's a super basic one with noble tree trimmings, succulents and dusty miller. I just wired everything together onto a metal hanger from the dry cleaners.... Continue Reading →

Creepy Ghosts and Bats

  I LOVE Halloween. But this year I have two kids under the age of 4 and they're really eating into my scary movie time. I'm a horror fanatic. So if making tissue ghosts and paper bats is as close to spooky-ness as I can get, well, I guess I'll take it. But The Walking Dead... Continue Reading →

Vintage TV Cabinet

  After having a new sliding-glass door installed and our jungle of a backyard butchered, I finally have enough light to take a picture of our new-ish TV cabinet. It's a vintage buffet that we found at a local antique shop. The previous owner painted it white and distressed it. It fits all of our electronic... Continue Reading →

Late 1800s Fireplace Mantle

This post is for Kelly. 😉 Thank you so much for commenting on my Instagram post. I was going to send a long-winded response but I thought a blog post would be more fitting. Here's the deal, people: I just acquired this Victorian era fireplace mantle FOR FREE. A HUGE thank you to Bud from... Continue Reading →

Kitchen Banquette

 Just pretty-ing up my kitchen banquette. We've had it completed for about a year now. I don't think I can get sick of it. Banquettes are a must! If you have the space for it...   My new Lil' Buddy the vintage partridge. Got him at an estate sale. Was thinking of selling him but I... Continue Reading →

Santa Fe, New Mexico

 I've only been to Santa Fe once but I was blown away. These photos are from 2006 and I just can't get them out of my head. We will go back - someday. This is the famous staircase of the The Loretto Chapel that was built with out nails - only wooden pegs by a mysterious... Continue Reading →
