I confess, I have used outdoor furniture inside (this chair is an example). I was reminded of this when I watched the barn episode of Backyard Builds and caught a similar chair in their reveal (swipe right to see). Honestly I love the makeovers on this show and I love that they air two half hour episodes back-to-back (so much makeover goodness in one hour). Be sure to catch the Backyard Builds finale this Thursday May 9th on HGTV Canada (10 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. ET/PT). It’ll have you looking at your outdoors in a whole new way. -
Now be honest, have you ever used outdoor furniture inside? (And university housing doesn’t count lol).

We thought that painting our old door knobs could give them new life. Boy was I wrong. Not only were they difficult to paint, the paint chipped off after a month. Which is why I am thrilled the Modern Handmade Home series is partnering with @schlagecanada , a leader in stylish top-grade door hardware. Honestly the toughest part of replacing my knobs was removing the old ones, the paint had glued them to the door and the original knobs had no visible screws. Check out the blog for more details or catch my Youtube video (swipe up in stories). Plus you can swipe right to catch the before and after of this bathroom (the door knobs were the icing on the cake).

Happy Easter! A little through back pic. #happyeaster

I have this stubborn spot in my house where I wanted to put a plant but it's too far away from the window to keep it alive. I’m sure some of you have been in this predicament. What’s a plant-loving girl to do??? Enter the artificial plant. I knew if I went down this route I wanted my artificial plant to be as “real” as possible so I did some research. I figured out my “real” criteria and found an amazing company that checked all the boxes. @decorsveronneau is a family owned, Quebec-based business that offers a vast selection of artificial plants and flowers and I am honoured to be partnering with them today to share my 5 tips for selecting an artificial plant on the blog (link in profile). We’re taking the faux pas out of the faux plant!

Patio season is almost upon us and it’s time to start looking at our outdoors spaces to figure out what’s missing and what we need to take full advantage of our outdoor spaces this summer. Like this Sol Daybed from @article (which is on sale right now) is the perfect piece for my patio. I can see myself taking many the summer naps on this beauty. Check out the blog for more boho outdoor patio ideas and be sure to check out the other bloggers in the #modernhandmadehome series to see how they’re getting their outdoor spaces patio-season ready:
Thalita from @thelearnerobserver shares her beautiful front porch makeover,
Lindi from @love_create_celebrate shares her gorgeous outdoor dining table and
@colleenpastoor colleenpastoor from Lemon Thistle shares a drool-worthy outdoor seating area. -

Yes it’s that time of year again! Time for some home makeover fun with the @oneroomchallenge ! I just got in under the wire. I hadn’t planned to participate because we just bought a house and we will be moving shortly but alas there is still work to be done around this house and what better way to make it happen than with the #oneroomvhallenge (plus the last time I sat out I couldn’t stand the #fomo) Follow the link in my profile to see which room I’m working on and swipe right to see previous #ORC reveals

Did you catch Backyard Builds last week (airing on HGTV Canada Thursdays at 10 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. ET/PT)? I loved both reveals but I really loved the backyard basketball court and she-shed (a mother can dream). I can’t wait to see the backyard makeovers tonight! (let’s chat about it on my stories). On another note the snow we received last weekend finally melted so I can start daydreaming about patio season again. Day-dreaming shmay-dreaming! I’m pulling out the artificial plants, bundling up in a big wool coat like this little guy and enjoying the spring sunshine now. Who’s with me?

Patio season is so close I can feel it. My plants are eager to get back outside and so am I. Last year I built these wooden plant holders for my patio and they really transformed the space (link in stories). This year I’m planning to give my patio another mini-update and I can’t wait. In the meantime, since I’m hungry for warm weather and I love me some home makeover shows, I will be watching the premiere of Backyard Builds on HGTV Canada Thursday, March 28 at 10 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. ET/PT for some inspiration and vicarious sun (after all it’s this season’s hottest show). How about you? Do you have any big patio plans? Will you be watching Backyard Builds?
