DIY Modern Laminate Flooring Plank Wall

Maggie approves!

Our family room (aka Dog Room) was an add-on, so one of the walls used to be an exterior wall. This “used to be outside” wall had brick walls and what used to be the wall of windows is now covered with drywall and wallpaper. I ripped the wallpaper and found that the drywall behind […]

DIY Modern Wall Shelves

Other end

My husband claimed a spare bedroom as a “man cave.” There was nothing manly about the room. It was more like a storage room until recently – I got tired of looking at the clutter, so I decided to install some shelves.

It’s spring – time to go outside and play with dirt. Our front yard only had two rose bushes which totally lacked interest and character.

Ready for Some Furniture!

When we bought our mid-century modern home, I pledged myself that I would restore as many original features as possible. One of such features was flooring. Our three bedrooms had the original 9” x 9” oak parquet flooring under the carpet which needed to be restored.

So It Begins…

Published by under My House

We finally bought a house! It is a 1955 mid-century modern house in Lortondale, a mid-century modern neighborhood built between 1954 and 1956 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The house has three bedrooms, 1 & ½ baths, and a single-car carport. It also has an add-on in the back – yes, an add-on! I know it’s probably […]
