Before pictures, What's up Dude!!

When our boys were young they use to have their own language or used a type of language that was from mars!  You would here them on the phone telling their friends Hey dog, fly by the trap. Translation.....Come on over to our house.

We are up to no good.... Just kidding! We wanted to share with you a home that we are redesigning. We are repainting, reupholstering and adding new furniture. Hum...... When we say we, we don't actually mean us.  No no no, You would never want us to paint your home. We are way too messy. We, as in our posse, our painters and our re-upholsterer. 

New Kravets fabric for this sofa. 

The wood details will be stripped and then stained darker. 

Fabric cushion and pillows will be added to the window box. 

We can't wait to redo the book shelves. 

New rug, chairs, drapes, lamps and coffee table are in the planning. A lot of work! When it is done we will share the trap with you, but for now, thanks dogs for letting us be a part of your lives.


  1. I'm looking forward to seeing it when it's done - there are some great pieces in that room.


  2. I'm very excited to see your after! Funny about the mars langauge but didn't we have words like groovin'?

  9. What's not to love about teenage boys? Looking forward to seeing all your transformations

  10. This looks like fun! I'm anxious to see the "after" pictures!

    And I love your sons' lingo. It reminds me of the "good 'ol days" with The Cosby Show, when Theo & Walter (better known as "Cockroach") had such genius names for themselves and their friends!


  11. Thanks for the lingo laugh...too funny!

  12. ha! Love the lingo. Don' you just love the start of a new project. Looks very exciting.. can't wait to see it after you work your magic..

    word out..

  13. Hi girls, just stopping into blogland to say hello before the workers start knocking! Nothing like a great before and after, and I look forward to the after. I am with you on all the "street talk/lingo", some of it I "get" and others are 'off the chain" (haha I couldn't resist, I can see my boys rolling their eyes now)

  14. How exciting dahhling.. nothing like a new project! Looking forward to the after photos.

  15. Wow Girls! I can't wait to see your magic! Your plan sounds fab!!

  16. I am looking forward to see this "trap" when it done and decorated. Love a good before and after.

    P/S: The moodboard was done using MyDeco.com and Paint. I didn't use Photoshop because I am not familiar with it. :)

    Have a great day!


  17. I love before and afters! Looking forward to it. I need to find a good upholsterer in Kansas City. I feel like if I could sew and do my own upholstery work, I would be an amazingly productive and dangerous person (in that I'd just reupholster things everytime the seasons change) :)

  18. I can tell that this is going to be a good one.....the room already has some great things in it. And I know you will make those book cases sing!
