The Flea – New Pieces

For all of you that have yet to check out our new shoppable section of the website, which I have aptly titled ‘the flea’ it is time to head on over and check it out. It is filled with some of my most favorite finds. I wanted this area to be a place where you could shop for some of my favorite items, props, and curiosities that I have been using in shoots for years. Basically it is filled with cool shit!

Traveling With A Toddler

Traveling with a toddler can be a harrowing experience. It’s like the day before taxes are due, and you can’t find one receipt or W-9. Its extremely stressful, you feel totally helpless, stupid, embarrassed, full of regret, and out of control. You are scrambling for hours and blaming each other for everything that is missing,… Read More …

Master Bathroom

The master bathroom is almost finished, with just a few small things outstanding (see the ‘before’ here). The construction stopped a few weeks ago so we’ve been able to use most of it, but technically we can’t call it done quite yet. Regardless, I figured that an update was in order. Our contractor was a… Read More …

1 Lamp, 3 Different Ways

For the most recent Redbook DIY we were tasked with taking one simple lamp, and doing it up three different ways. We used Target’s Double Gourd Lamp in Shell because it is a super classic, simple shape, and a Threshold large white shade for all three of these lamp DIY’s.

Ban.do Custom Pieces

We joked that everything in the Ban.do project was custom – that nothing was just simply purchased at a store or easily figured out (HA HA HILARIOUS JOKE, RIGHT JEN/GINNY). Because of that there is just too much good info that I refuse to take to my grave. So this post is all about a lot of those details or smaller projects that were missed in the other posts that I know at least 14 of you are interested in – the reupholstering of chairs, plexiglass projects, window gels, wallpaper, disco ball and nude murals of both Jen and I on the bathroom walls.

The Evolution of My Extra Space

  As you know, the progress of my “extra room”, which is downstairs in my house, has gone through many transformations. When we bought the house, it was an extra room used completely for storage – with a weird inside room that was fully padded (because they were musicians, right??????). It was a catchall for… Read More …

Store Tour

Sunbeam Vintage

I’ve been shopping at Sunbeam vintage for years and during the HGTV show I bought A LOT of furniture there. It’s close to where we live and their inventory is huge and changes constantly. You can go all the time and never know what you’ll get – which is what makes these stores very addictive… Read More …

Ban.do Champagne Room

This room in the Ban.do studio started out as a dude name Todd’s office (the big boss that oversees a few different businesses). It was to be ‘rustic midcentury vintage surfer dude’ – kinda. But slowly Todd came to the office less and less, probably because we did this to the front of the studio…. Read More …
