Frequently Asked Questions

It can be a full-time job answering all the e-mails I get with questions about particular things. Unfortunately, I already have a full-time job. In an effort to answer your questions more efficiently and spare my sanity, I thought I’d answer the most frequently asked questions. I hope this helps!

All the paint colors that I know for this house can be found here.

What kind of paint did you use on your door (more here) and black furniture?

You can find more information on the buffet here and here.

It’s Benjamin Moore’s Metal and Wood paint. I don’t get it mixed. I simply get it in a black base paint. I’ve also been asked where I buy it. My town has a local paint store that sells Benjamin Moore paint exclusively. From what I understand, you cannot get it at a “big box” store. You can go here to find locations near you.

The old “Where did you find that” series. Here we go.

My daughter’s bed. After searching and searching, I found it here. I purchased it with the trundle, and it came with a free mattress. It’s worked out perfectly for her friends.

Tree mural

My daughter’s bedding.  (Sorry about the bad color in this one.) The pink quilt is Pottery Barn’s Eliza. It reverses to a cute white/pink print on the other side. The green one was at Marshall’s for $20.00.


Garage door address numbers. And what font are they?

I got them from Wonderfully Wordy. The font is just from my Word program. It’s Modern No. 20.

vinyl numbers

The glass/vinyl calendar in the mudroom.

I ordered it from Say it with Style off Etsy. I absolutely love it!

The “mirror” in the dining actually a candle platter. The other pictures don’t do it justice, but it has a gorgeous pattern in it! I found it at Ikea for $15.00—on sale from $25.00.

The rug in my craft room. I found it here.  I ordered the 5x8.

What are all the measurements of the board and batten in your dining room?

Luckily (for me) I already typed up some posts that answer all the questions about that room. You can see them here and here.

As some regularly repeated e-mails come in, I’ll continue to add to this post! Thanks for asking!

You have me inspired. If you have any secrets you can share about how you do it all and keep your sanity, I'd love to hear them!
