Home Improvements

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Leviton for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
You, my blog friends, all know that I have a gajillion things I want to do in my house.  I talk about it all the time.  We bought this cute little house as a fixer upper, planning to be here for a while so we really want to "make it ours".  We started putting our mark on every room almost as soon as we got the keys to the house on closing day, but there is still so much more we want to do.  Here's a peek into my plan:
Living Room
Kitchen
Breakfast Nook / Office
Boy's Bedroom
Girl's Room
Guest Bedroom
Clearly this is the long-term plan and we'll be taking baby steps to get there, doing projects here and there along the way.  Sometimes the little details can make a really big difference in a room.  I got a little excited when I heard about Leviton's new Renu collection of switches, wall plates, and dimmers.
Renu<sup>®</sup> > Brands > Solutions from Leviton Web Site
The faces can be snapped on and off, making it easy to change the color of your switches whenever you change your decor.  They come in 20 popular paint colors so you can surely find one to match your room.
  Have you ever had an outlet in a weird spot that you wanted to disguise and tried to paint it the same color as the wall?  Using your laytex wall paint?  And it looked kind-of bad so you went get a new one and then accidentally screwed the plate on too tight and cracked it?  I'm guilty.
Renu seems like an awesome solution for this problem.   In this case, I could go with a nice black switch or I could try a fun color that would go with the art on my chalk wall.  Or change it as my mood strikes.  Either option is better than my stick-out-like-a-sore-thumb-all-white-and-cracked-like-that switch plate.

  2. Thanks! The couch is just from Pottery Barn. The vintage locker basket thing is something I found on a website for a salvage store in the midwest somewhere. I think it is soooo cool. Thanks for asking!

  3. I love your room boards! Thanks for posting such inspiring things on your blog. I just discovered it tonight when I was searching for ideas on decorating my two year olds soon-to-be big boy room. We just bought a fixer-upper and I'm a little overwhelmed with all the decorative projects that need to be done - one room at a time! Do you know where the poppy print chair on the living room board is from? I'm a sucker for poppies and I might just be able to convince my husband that we need that chair in our living room. Thanks!

    1. Thanks! That beautiful is from Anthropologie about a year and a half ago. I love it so much, but it's not available any more. I still love the idea of a bold, modern flowery fabric on a more traditional arm chair. Good luck with your home projects!!
