Concrete Flooring.

Carpet, hardwood, laminate, linoleum, vinyl, tile, stone, concrete… Concrete?

Yes, concrete.

Concrete floors are a modern flooring solution. They are durable, easy to maintain and compare favorably with other flooring materials, such as natural and ceramic tiles.

Picturing a concrete floor might bring dull, cold and drab images to mind, but with the latest technological advances, concrete floors are nothing like that at all. They are attractive, hard-wearing and can last a lifetime. And, although concrete doesn’t exactly carry the properties to qualify as a good insulator, it can be insulated from underneath before being laid.

Polished concrete is fast becoming a popular flooring material. Thanks to recent advances in polishing equipment and techniques, contractors are now grinding concrete floor surfaces, whether new or old, to a high-gloss finish. Factor in the superior durability and performance of concrete, and it’s no wonder why more homeowners are opting for polished concrete…

Painting Home Decor 🎨🎨🎨🎨

I have had a hard time finding items that will look good in my living room. I decided to get a new durablend/ leather sofa and it is great if u own a dog. I have a beagle who sheds a lot. 

I decided to take coupons I had at ac moore and purchase the canvas squares so that I could paint my own home decor and also picked up the paint colors I wanted while we were there. 

I pointed the squares in teal and started from that point I like one for sure but the other two could use some work I think so I may go to Joann fabrics to get some fabric and cover up the ones I didn’t like. 

Here is some pictures of my work 



Happy Easter 💐🐥🐣🌷

I hope everyone had a great easter with their families. We surely did and for some reason I didn’t take a lot of photos I guess I was spending time talking to the family lol. If you know me you know that this is odd for me not to have a camera in my hand and a thousand photos. 

This year easter was at my aunts house and was a calm and laid back lunch. The kids had 180 eggs to look for in the yard and they had a blast. I walked around with my little cousins and helped them if they needed it lol. 

I made deviled eggs and I seen a post on pinterest that you could dye the eggs after peeling them and I decided why not give them a pop of color. Well we didn’t notice because of how much food we had but we forgot to put them out for everyone and I don’t eat deviled eggs and if I do it maybe one. Well I am sure they won’t go to waste. 

Here is a few pics of my dyed Easter eggs.

THE HUFFINGTON POST: “Small Houses with a Huge Sense of Style”

Small is better, it seems — at least in Chapel Hill, N.C.

Hitching her wagon to a national trend toward tiny homes, an architect there recently unveiled her designs for the Micropolis.

They range in size from 150 to 1,500 square feet. They’re flexible enough to offer just one bedroom, or as many as three. And they offer abundant choices in finishes and looks.

Best of all, the finished product comes in at about $200 per square foot. READ MORE…

A Tiny Home Open House: Visiting Hannah’s House

Today we attended Hannah’s Open House, a gathering that we’d found through  Although we’d seen a Tumbleweed home at the Mother Earth News Fair, and I’ve obsessively viewed thousands of photos online, It was nice to finally see a Tiny Home that was being lived in.

Hannah’s home had a couple of great features that we’ll have to borrow for our design.  The L-shaped seating in the main living space converts to an RV-style guest bed, which is something that will be extremely useful when adult kids return to visit.  I also enjoyed seeing and using the mini-staircase, and we’ve decided this is a feature we like, especially since we’re approaching 50.  We backpack and stay active, but because I’m nearly comatose in the morning, stairs are a good thing!  The loft was nice and bright, and seemed roomy.  We can see ourselves living in such…

Originally posted on Florida Home Remodeling:

Although more and more people in Georgia are realizing the endless benefits of shipping container homes, they are still a relatively new idea to some. At New Generation Builders, we are a premier company based in Florida that strongly believes in creating durable, quality living and working spaces for people which allow them to live sustainably—without breaking the bank.

Instead of just reiterating how reliable, convenient and eco-friendly shipping container homes are, we want to get down to the specifics of their benefits to help people understand exactly why these products are well worth investing in.

What are they used for?

Shipping container homes in Georgia, and all throughout the United States, can be used for many purposes—from permanent housing and vacation homes to extra working or storage space. At New Generation, we even offer commercial container buildings! Because these are modular in shape, they can be stacked on top…

My Diamond Candle 💍💎💍💎

I used my last diamond candle that I had in my stockpile of candles yesterday. Which meant after burning the candle for a few hours I would have a new ring to add to my collection. 

The only thing I don’t like about diamond candles is that you never know what size your ring will be and sometimes you get a beautiful ring that will not fit on any of your fingers. I know other ring candle companies let you choose your size or you can pick the option of surprise me, which can be any size. 

The candles cost around $25 if you don’t have a coupon code. 

Here are some photos of my diamond candle and the process of retrieving my ring. Diamond candle has a gold circle so u know where the ring is located. The ring is wrapped in foil and also is in a small Baggie. This helps because you do not want wax all over your new ring. 

I loved the ring I got last night because it is purple my favorite color.

Photo editing 📷📷📷

I love taking photos and also using all the free photo editing programs that they have out there. Some programs also offer if u pay a monthly or yearly fee that you can use their exclusive editing items they offer that you can not use when you use the free version.

Here are some photos I edited on my phone or mackbook.
