Landing Makeover

I bribed my kids to go with me to Homegoods today after camp pickup and saw a great chest of drawers that I thought would look great on the landing at the top of the stairs. So presto changeo...a little landing makeover for you on a Thursday evening. Whatcha think? I kind of love it! It's the perfect mix of the wood that is in the hallway with the mirrors to keep it a little fancier (a word I don't really love) but you get the drift. I just threw a few things I found upstairs on it to decorate it for now but I am sure I'll change those at some point too.

It's sort of hard to tell because the mirrors are reflecting the dark wood floors, but the wood on the drawers is a really nice distressed look with the mirror background and these cute "crystal" like knobs. 

Here's how the landing looked after I first painted the stripes on it.  For more information on how I did that you can read my previous blog post on the subject here.  Below are a few shots of how it looked during the construction process. 

I am thinking I might get a nice runner for the long part of the hall which you can see below.  Not sure yet though - I really love the hardwoods and probably won't cover them up but ya never know!

So there's a quick little makeover! Cheap, quick and makes a big impact.  


  1. Dreaming of mouth-watering, competition-worthy, low-and-slow meats? Offset smokers, also known as barrel best smoker thermeter or horizontal offset smokers are often thought of as the traditional smoker for their simple, yet effective design. Powered by charcoal and/or wood, they’re ideal for anyone who wants to master the conventional way of smoking, and, cook a large quantity of deliciously smoked meat in the process. But, when it comes to buying an offset smoker, any old thing won’t do! The market’s full of cheap options that leak smoke, use a tonne of fuel and quite frankly, just don’t work well. Instead of chancing it, you’re obviously doing your research!

  2. A juicer, obviously, extracts juice from your ingredients, which will predominantly be fruits and vegetables. There are two main types of juicers – high-speed juicers and low-speed juicers. High-speed juicers, sometimes called centrifugal juicers, use a spinning disc blade to chop up and juice your fruits and vegetables. This is the quickest way to juice your ingredients juicer for carrots and leafy green, but it’s also noisy and creates a lot of heat. These causes produce to lose its natural nutrients, so the juice you get won’t have as many health benefits.We provide top rated reviews about best Juicer.
