{Guest Post} Emily at Decorchick!

Happy New Year’s Eve, friends!! I can’t believe Christmas has passed and it is now almost 2011?! I packed up all the decorations yesterday (except for disassembling the tree, that’s Mr. Sugarplum’s job…hopefully it’s gone by Valentine’s Day!), and I love how clean and minimal everything looks! I’m working on a little Winter decor, and will show you soon.

Today I’m so excited to welcome Emily from Decorchick to the Best of the Best series! Her blog is so fun to read, and the girl is hard-core about tackling the tough projects. I think she could lay a new roof on her house if necessary!


Hi there all of you Sugarplums! I’m Emily from Decorchick and am so happy to be a guest on Cassie’s blog today. She is definitely one of the funniest writers in blogland, and I love some good humor. I like to think I am pretty funny, but she is way funnier.

Cassie asked me what one of my favorite projects was in 2010 and it would have to be…The Dining Room Turned Office.

The room before was a rusty red color that I was SO over. And now, I can’t get enough gray. I want it everywhere. 🙂

I do have another favorite project though, and that would have to be the Staircase Makeover.

Adding any kind of molding to our home just makes me incredibly happy, totally changes a room, and adds value to boot!

The post I was most surprised by it’s popularity would have to be…The Pantry Makeover!

Apparently people really like a tidy pantry. 🙂 And surprisingly to this day, the pantry is still nice and organized. Yay!

So that’s about it everyone! I hope you all have had a joyous holiday season and have a very Happy New Year! And thank you Cassie, for allowing me to be a guest on your lovely blog. 🙂

p.s. – Yes, I use a lot of happy faces and exclamation marks…just can’t help myself! 🙂

Thanks Emily! I was so super impressed with all the hard work involved in making over her stairs, and the pantry post was so inspiring. I’m striving to get..and stay…organized. How about you guys? Do you have big organization projects going, or have you given up on the chaos?

Have a fabulous, safe evening! I hope you’re ringing in the New Year with those you love!

  7. I think her pantry carousels are genius! I know a lot of people have pantries like that (we did in our townhouse)- what a great idea!
