The Nitty Gritty Details of the Home Office / Family Room

February 14, 2013

Resources for Products in my Home Office / Family Room space by @Jenna_Burger,

What a week - it's flown by for me.  How about you?  I can't believe it's Thursday already (and Valentine's Day - Happy Vday).  I've probably been too consumed with reading all of your sweet, kind, and awesome comments from Tuesday's reveal post to even look up and see what day it is - hehe. Honestly though, you all are so nice and your heartfelt words meant alot.  My newly created home office / family room is such a special spot and I'm thrilled you think so too (other than the few people who wrote and thought I was crazy for covering up a window with a bookcase.  I live here and the room … [Read more...]

Big Girl Bedroom {Reveal}

October 16, 2012

Big Girl Bedroom via

There's been a whole lotta room tours around here lately, and the latest space I'm {revealing} is my daughter's newly revamped big girl bedroom. Honestly, I'm not sure who's more excited about this space - me or Big Girl "A". So here it is... For a little reminder, this is what "A's" room looked like before. It was a beautiful space, but since turning 3, she was in need of a big girl room with a big girl bed.  Many of the elements in her room stayed, while others got "jazzed up" a bit. Here was the room concept... and, here's the result... My favorite … [Read more...]

Horrid to Heavenly Master Bathroom Reveal

March 6, 2012


In one week, my master bathroom went from a place that I dreaded and turned into a heavenly, serene, and spa-like oasis.  The last 7 days have been a whirlwind of working around the clock, but it's all worth it!  Looking back, I can't believe I waited so long.  I walk into this space now and I feel a fresh of breathe air.  Take a look... Pin It Beautiful right?  But wait until you see the before, and you'll be sure to appreciate the after even more! Pin It I've been slightly secretive about the plan that I had for this space.  I didn't want to reveal too many details and ruin … [Read more...]

Master Bathroom Makeover: Part 1

February 27, 2012


If you follow SAS Interiors on Facebook and Twitter (if you don't, please do), you may have saw a few postings that I wrote mentioning that I finally decided to give my master bathroom a makeover.  And when I say finally, I mean FINALLY!  This is the only room in the entire house that hasn't been touched since we moved in and it's horrendous...  Until NOW. Over the weekend, we (meaning the mister and I) finally took the plunge and gave this much-needed space a revamp.  I really wish that I could say in two days we finished the entire space, but that would be a big-white-lie. Bummer!  I went … [Read more...]

My Daring Design Decision and a Tour of My Front Room

February 10, 2012


Front Room... Sounds so official, right? Well, it's not... sorry for the letdown. I call it my front room because it's not a family room where the family hangs out and it's not a living room that's a formal space, it's just simply, the front room.  Anyhoo, if you remember back to a month ago, this room was in the midst of some rearranging.  I had been wanting and needing a larger desk - three small desks randomly positioned around the house just wasn't cutting it.  Last year I had created a Mom Cave / Craft Area in the basement, but I never used it (I like natural light much better than … [Read more...]

Kitchen Countertop Reveal Using the Rust-Oluem Countertop Transformations Kit

July 14, 2011

Cabinet Transformation

I have been quite excited all week to share this….  As you know from my recent posts, my kitchen is in the midst of a minor makeover. No new cabinets.  No new countertops.  But the existing is all being TRANSFORMED. When the friendly folks at Rust-Oleum heard about my kitchen revamp, they kindly sent me their Countertop Transformations Kit in the Oynx finish to try out on my existing hunter green laminate surface.  From the many posts I’ve written on my kitchen, I have been quite indecisive on what to do with the countertops, and I thought the Rust-Oleum kit would be a great solution!  … [Read more...]

Kitchen Revamp is Underway

Before Kitchen_SAS Interiors

It's been a long time waiting, but I've FINALLY made my decisions on what to do with my kitchen.  A few months ago...7 months to be exact (back in late December), I mentioned that on my to-do list for 2011 was to makeover my kitchen.  I'd love to do a complete overhaul with new cabinets and beautiful new countertops, but it's not in the cards right now.  If you remember, I had decided to use stain on the cabinets to achieve a darker look, but was stuck on what to do with the countertops.   Well I changed my mind entirely...a girl can do that, right?!  No more stain, but instead ~ PAINT! My … [Read more...]

Shedding Light on Lighting Fixtures

Family Room Lighting Fixture

Since we moved into our house (a little over a year ago), I have slowly been updating the light fixtures - I haven't wanted to replace the old until I found something new that I really LOVED!  Nothing is really wrong with any of the fixtures, but most are outdated and don't fit with the decor.  Because the first floor of my home is an 'open floor concept', there are numerous ceiling fixtures and I hadn't been able to find anything that "floats by boat" for the family room....until now. The other day I was visiting Janell's blog and she has this fixture in her home. I asked her for … [Read more...]

DIY: Transforming the Exterior of Mi Casa

May 3, 2011


What a fabulous weekend I had....and not one minute of it was spent relaxing. But that's just me....sitting down on the couch and watching tv is boring (most of the time). Being productive and accomplishing a goal is so invigorating! And can I tell you, I feel INVIGORATED! Since the day we moved into our house (alittle over a year ago), I've had a laundry list of things on my to-do-list (which is in my head, not on paper -- bad idea because it never escapes me). ALOT of the interior work was done over the winter months, AND now we're onto the exterior. With being an Interior … [Read more...]

Tour My Home: Boys Room ~ Skateboard Haven

April 18, 2011

Boy Room_SAS Interiors_1

The goal of my blog is to share inspirational ideas about design, and with that I like to showcase areas of my own home to actually show how a high-end look can be done for less (and no one has to know).  With being an Interior Designer, I have worked with clients that have limitless funds to spend, and others than have a barebone budget.  Either way, a well thought-out and designed space can be achieved. Through my blog series, Tour My Home, I enjoy sharing different areas of the space I've created for my family. We last visited my daughter's Honeysuckle Retreat, and the Next Stop: My … [Read more...]
