Good morning! One thing I have learned through my design journey is that light fixtures completely change a space! Our home is a mix of new lighting & old lighting that I was able to give a fresh look...Actually some of my favorite light fixtures in our home are from thrift stores🙌
This is our bedroom light & every time I walk into our room it brings me joy! No really, a good light fixture brings me mad joy💕today we are working on the pantry STILL(ran into some snags) & I am putting up some faux lights above our peninsula! (More details to come on that). I am enjoying being home & getting some projects done before we head back to work. I was thinking yesterday about all of the projects we do around here to make our home work for us & truly make it our little sanctuary & I couldn’t help but have a few thoughts on that...
1. This is not our dream home however there are elements to it that make it perfect (proximity to the Inn being a must & one of the only things really that have kept us here until the perfect house or property on Bennett Rd comes along...our dream property is across the street from the Inn and connects to the property Andy’s parents own but we haven’t figured out who owns that glorious piece of land & it’s not for sale😂😂)
2. We have made this imperfect home a perfect reflection of us & our style. It isn’t for everybody! This house reflects many design elements that I LOVE but others may not (like this faux brick wall in the master bedroom)but in saying that when putting together a space in your home there are no rules... if you love it... then rock it.
3.I am thankful for this little ranch & all of the work and thought that goes into designing each nook & cranny. I love the process of a good project & cannot believe it is what I do for a living. (I am currently designing 8 guest rooms at the Inn)
If you made it to the end of that chapter book thankyou😘😘😘 .

How about that for a before and after! Ken's Custom Design uses DCI Concrete #Overlay, Acid Stains, #Pigments and #Sealers to give this 1927 building a new lease on life.

Are you a project finisher I'll be honest with you- I complete 80% of the project in about 10% of the project time. 😂 That last little bit of work always escapes me. I have unfinished projects in every room of this house. I'm a serial #diyprojectunfinisher. There are lots of fun additions to the kitchen, and I don't think I've written a single one of them on the blog. (I'm also the slowest blog writer ever! I'm sensing a theme here....😂) This wall is actually a faux brick mdf paneling with spackle on top. Isn't that the neatest thing ever I've always wanted a brick wall. I have dozens of them pinned to Pinterest. (Hey, I'm on Pinterest! Same name.) A few months ago we were in Home Depot, and I saw the mdf paneling. I immediately thought omg I have a gold mine of an idea. And then I hopped on my phone and saw that a dozen other people had the same idea! Great minds think alike, and I learned some great tips from some of them. The one thing that I didn't read on any of the tutorials was that you must SEAL your mdf before you spackle. Otherwise, the red pulls through in the grout lines and looks a little bit pink. Use an oil based spray poly. Just a tip from me to you. 😘 #fauxbrick #fauxbrickwall #magnoliasimple #magnoliasimplekitchenrenovation #stenciledkitchenfloor #stenciledfloor #greenfloor #greenstencil #1940shouse

& all at once, summer collapsed into fall. 🌽 🎃 #OscarWilde | Ok maybe I'm exaggerating because it was in the 80's today & that's cool compared to the heatwave we've been experiencing. Also, almost finished with my #fauxfireplace 👆🏼| Happy "early" fall y'all.|
And the bricks are starting to get filed in. I am doing the base colours here, and will them shade them in all the greys, reds, oranges and browns you would find in a classic red brick wall.
I am using various colours by @plasconspaces in their Double Velvet range. I am also mixing my own shades between their paints, as I am using up leftovers. I haven't laid out an extra cent for this project yet! One of the many perks of painting for a living. 🎨

Newest home project: I'm painting a faux brick wall in a small alcove in our passage way. This was an impulse decision, but I'm super excited about it. I've been wanting to do something sessions to this little corner for some time. At the moment it's just "meh", but I think it has a ton of potential to be gorgeous.
I'll post photo updates as I work. :) For now I've just drawn out roughly 180 bricks and am ready to start painting the faux cement.

Team paints here one last time! Check out this bomb wall texture for R&G! Brick-onite is a pre-pressed sheet good with a brick texture on it. It's pretty standard in hardware stores and needs a little TLC before it can hit our stage! We used our magic and 20 gallons of goop to bring our walls to life.

From 80's looking wall paneling to a fabulous desk front with a little industrial and farm flair. I employed the littles for priming so I could paint a door then had only a roller soaked in the correct turquoise paint and no handle so I did what any other sane person would do...used my hand to get every smidgen of paint out of it.....it's going to be a fab addition to the desk in an amazing office! #thetexasclementine #texasvintagechicks #farmflare #industrialfarmhouse #fauxbricks
