It is time for us to say goodbye to our beautiful converted church. Enjoy the last pictures of our space (courtesy of Tour Factory).
We are moving on to other projects and I will post about those when the time is right.

We have had so much fun in this house. We know that the new owners will enjoy it for years to come!
Today my dear friend Nicole is sharing how to take a boys shirt and turn it into a very cute pillow cover. She also has some other ideas on re-purposing other clothing items. Nicole always amazes me with her ideas. She is one talented lady!
Hi, this is Nicole and I’m happy to share my pillow sham project with you today.

Hi all! Today you’ll find me over at Remodelaholic. I’ll be talking about my laundry room makeover.
Stop by and say hi!
Here are the instructions for the pocket organizer I made for our entryway armoire.
I finished the inside of the armoire! It needed some paint and some more organizing.
Here is the armoire as you last saw it:
I’m occasionally inspired to paint something. It usually comes from a need to have something on an empty wall! We had a spot above our couch that I thought at one point I would hang a black and white photo. That didn’t happen so I decided I would give a painting a shot.
Here’s the living room before:
The entryway in our converted church is spacious but doesn’t have a coat closet. I knew I needed some hooks for hanging and somewhere to hide all of the shoes. This is how it looked before:
I get this question all the time. When I tell people that we live in a church for the first time, I think at first they don’t believe me then the questions start.
I gotta tell you, this was our 6th home purchase, and this is by far the coolest house I’ve ever lived in.
What’s it like living in a church? Honestly not much different than living in a regular house. Yeah it looks like a church from the outside but inside it kinda just looks like a house. We have vaulted ceilings and some stained glass but we have a kitchen, living room, and dining room just like everyone else.
Ok, so not a call 9-1-1 sort of emergency. But when your washing machine goes out that’s a bit of an emergency in my book. Our washer was old, maybe as old as I am, ugh. I knew I wanted to redo the laundry room but it really wasn’t at the top of my list. Until the washer went out. Then I decided that before the new washer and dryer were delivered that I would paint and put up new shelves. Why do I do this to myself?

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
I wanted to add some more color to my son’s space. I refinished his storage bench with his current favorite color, bright green. I had some paint leftover from that project so I decided to paint his door!
The door to his bedroom is just an ordinary interior door.
