Sorry Hubby

Cate Mezyk - February 27, 2017

My poor husband. Oh, how he hates clutter. Or rather, what he refers to as clutter, and I like to refer to as necessary items for decorating a home. If he had his way, our home would be completely devoid of any decor. He likes empty shelves. Our compromise is that I don’t overcrowd our space with items (or, at least, I TRY not to). …

House Tour – My Front Room

Tammy Hiveley - June 30, 2016

Last week you got a glimpse inside my front door. Now’s it’s time to come in and sit down for awhile. Let’s chat about our day, tomorrow’s plans, and all our parenting highs & lows. I think the front room is one of the most important rooms in the house. The front room in our old house was one I was never happy with so …

A Few Pinterest TO DOs

Tammy Hiveley - May 19, 2016

Now that the shop is up and running. I can get back to the list of ToDos that sit taunting me on my Pinterest boards. Sooo many grand ideas ~ so little time. Sadly, I’m a prime candidate for “Nailed It!” comedic pics. As much as I’d like to say I’m ‘crafty’; I’m really not. I have the vision but lack the patience to complete it …

DIY Rustic Industrial Shelving

Cate Mezyk - January 19, 2016

We love to think of ourselves as DIY girls. But see, instead of the kind of DIY Pinteresty type experts that seem to share unreachable and impossible projects, we’re kind of fly by the seat of our pants, fake it until we make it DIYers. Case in point, the new shelving we recently installed. We knew we wanted a rustic industrial look, and of course …

A Peek into My Family Room

Tammy Hiveley - January 12, 2016

We’ve been in our new house for over a year now. On one hand it feels like we just moved in… but on the other, it feels like we’ve been here for years. We can’t imagine living anywhere else. Since then we’ve loaded the vast cupboards, cabinets and closets we swore we couldn’t possibly ever fill. Bah! It’s like we took that as a challenge. We won lost? Not sure …

Leather Staining Made Easy DIY

Tammy Hiveley - December 10, 2015

After we got our new Minnesota Barnwood table last winter, we needed new chairs. Jason wanted metal for an industrial luncheon look, but I was still in love with the quality and general look of our old chairs. They just needed an update. A few of them had been Sharpied with a beautiful 2 year old’s artwork. And don’t let the seemingly wipeable leather seats …

Wild About What’s New

Cate Mezyk - September 4, 2015

We’re back, with another round of “our current faves.” It’s always hard to choose a list of ‘best new items,’ because we’d be happy taking home just about everything we have at Wild Ruffle. And, much to our husbands’ chagrin, we often do take it all home. Too bad having a co-op shop means that you don’t get a discount on items in your own …
