Amazing, you guys. What neat and clean freaks you are. Are you sure you didn’t have help from a wife, mother, sister,girlfriend???
That bedroom looks like it came straight out of the Pottery Barn catalogue! Seriously, I am so impressed. Posting some of these and link to your webpage on Pinterest, if the gang hasn’t beaten me to it.
I found your page through a recently posted Ikea Hack and I love your spin on rustic style. Your new kitchen is awesome and I saw in the comments that a new refrig is one hold until the funds are available. What about covering the current black one with the “stainless steel” adhesive paper available at most home improvement stores. It would blend in with your other updated appliances until you can make the new purchase. It might be a labor intensive project, but you guys have mad skillls and your attention to detail is unbelievable. I can’t wait to see what you do next.
We are so glad you found us. We love to change up Ikea.
That s a great idea about the stainless adhesive, I’m pretty sure that we’d be able to handle it. But we need a fridge with 2 upper doors and a freezer drawer. Right now the door handle on the garage door prevents the fridge from opening all the way….. It’s Super inconvient.
Glad we got your attention! Stay tuned
James, I’m a fan of the French door refrig too! When I did my gut kitchen renovation 6 years ago, I purchased one and I love it. Since my kitchen is a small galley style, I opted for a “counter depth” model so only the depth of the doors and handle extend past the counter. It was the perfect solution to my narrow NYC space where every inch counts!
We’ve talked about a counter depth model, I LOVE that look …. It puzzles me why people remodel kitchens and the fridge is sticking 12 inches out of a cubby! Ours is just in a weird place
…..it used to have light switches behind it ……

Thanks Cari, we are so glad that you found us. …..and it’s always nice to hear nice things from our readers.
Just found your blog – wow..I love it! What a great mix of styles – chic and rustic. I’ll certainly keep coming back to check in and see what you’ve done! I got here through google-ing “low tv console ikea” and came across what you did with your ikea bookcases – genius! I’m a little nervous that I won’t be able to style my wall behind/above as awesomely as you guys did…but I’m going to think about going in this direction for my TV room. Thank you for the inspiration!
Hi Amy, So glad that you found us. I hate the TV, Hate it so much….but we use the hell out of it…and movies look amazing on that big screen. All the “stuff” around it just helps me to forget that it’s there in the first place…We’d love to see what you come up with for your place.
I love love love your style!! Your bedroom is my favorite!! I also have several (John Wayne, etc.) old movie posters. We are currently building a house and I am thinking I will go this direction with our bedroom. Thanks for the inspiration!!
Aww thanks Jackie! Our style is a little “junky” and a whole lot “Texas”…I have a few Clint Eastwood and James Dean Posters I’d like to frame one day…just don’t have any free wall space right now…Glad that we could inspire you.
I stumbled upon your blog from a post on Pinterest. I absolutely love your style! Your projects are very inspirational and the end product looks so professional! I really love the wood headboard wall you did. I’m trying to do something similar with pallet boards. I’m definitely going to try your idea of wetting the boards before applying the stain. Can’t wait to see what projects you have next!!
Hi Samantha, welcome aboard! That wood wall is a stunner, it turned out even better than planned( I just wanted to hide my lamp cords) I hope we keep you inspired and motivated.

I too stumbled on your blog. Love, love, love the bedroom. Where would one find the red Navajo blanket/comforter?
Not sure if my post came through. I was asking about where to purchase the red Navajo blanket/comforter. Love the bedroom!
Hi Lynne, I wish I had a dozen of those blankets…..I could sell one a week. It’s an old (read discontinued) Pendleton blanket we bought on a trip to New Mexico. The website http://www.pendleton-usa.com/ has many, many more blankets. Check them out. I’m sure you’ll find one you love.

Hello you two. I love you already. I found you by searching for my beloved former director, Doug Bihlmaier. He is a gem and clearly you think so too. Totally love the nod to him 🙂 Your perseverance is impressive and your resourcefulness coveted. Have fun with what is to come. I will be watching.
Hi Cheri, so glad that you found us. Tell Doug that he has fans in Dallas! When I was in Santa Fe, one of the shop owners found out that I work for Ralph Lauren, and immediately started gushing about mr Doug……..I didn’t have the heart to tell her that I’ve never met him…….

I have one of the Indian’s that started Your collection and one other Radio the I am trying to find out the value. I was hoping I could send You a photo of the other one because I have been unable to determine the name. Thank You in advance.
Hi Tasha, that Indian, “Injun Joe” I believe is from the early 90’s, he’s probably worth $20-30, I’d guess. Most Radkos hold their value. Although there are several rare, limited edition ones that can get pretty pricy over time. I’ve been hunting the Saks Fifth Avenue Santa from ‘95 for over 20 yeArs now. He was $45 then, and about $600 now. But he is pretty scarce. Not many ornaments increase in value nearly that much. Last weekend we bought 5 25-year-old Radkos for $5 each at an antique show. I’m certainly no expert, but I’d love to help you out. You can email me pics to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll gladly take a look-see.
