Pioneer Woman Presto Update

Remember when I blogged about helping P-Dub renovate/re-decorate her upstairs? Well, she’s been a super busy gal lately with the release of her second cookbook

…so obviously she’s had a different type of RANCH on her brain lately- ha!

She did receive the Dash & Albert runners I used in my presto change-o photo drawing recently though…

…and she took some photos of them for me yesterday so I could see what they look like in “real life”…

Couldn’t you just eat them up!?

Scrump. Dilly. Ishous!

She told me she’s planning to blog about the whole staircase switcheroo, step-by-step style, so that we can all see exactly how to tackle this kind of project- from carpet removal, to runner installation.

I’m looking forward to catching up with her for a bit before her book signing in Birmingham tomorrow, and I can’t wait to blog about her next ranch-y re-do update, too. We’re designing the upstairs around this pillow cover from Pottery Barn

Earthy, fun, and ranch family-friendly!

PS- Anybody else going to Ree’s signing in B’ham tomorrow? If so, I hope you’ll say hello and let me hug your neck!

    I came up from Montgomery yesterday for the book signing and it was wonderful! Someone pointed you out to me across the room! I was so happy to give Ree a painting I did of Charlie…it was a thrill! She is so nice!

    Loved your version of Pioneer Woman’s daughter’s room much better than what they ended up with……yours was a dream! I saw comments from others that felt the same way.

    You are so talented!

    Layla — we have a funky staircase similar to Ree’s…how are you suggesting they attach the runner? There must be a less expensive way than using those rod “things” that hold the rug in place at the back of the steps? Love, love, love your blog and site…something I look forward to!

      Hi Kimberly! I actually have no idea how they’re going to do it- but I sure am looking forward to learning! 😀
