Hey, yall! I hope your summers are going well. We have been doing the usual... popsicles and sticky faces, swimming pools, sunscreen, beach trips, late bedtimes, vegetable gardens, and growing Baby #3! July 4, 2019 Part of getting ready for our newest addition - Anna James - was moving Natalie out of the nursery. We … Continue reading Update: Kids’ Shared Bedroom
Hey guys! Wanted to share a quick and easy project I tackled this past weekend... DIY Shelving! I am using them for plants (because #therearemany), but you could use these anywhere. Granted, we had most of the supplies needed on hand from finishing the stairs; however, a quick trip to your local hardware store would … Continue reading DIY (Plant) Shelving
Well, we finally did it. We finished the floors. (And all God's people said AMEN!!!!) From the day we first viewed the house, we knew that new floors would make the biggest difference of all the aesthetic plans we had. Remember the floating laminate and floral lineoleum? Yeah, me neither. (Probably because I have definitively … Continue reading The Hardwoods are Done!
The floors are installed, and they look better than I could have imagined! More pictures of the finished product to come on that later (we are still getting the baseboards installed/caulked), but I wanted to show you how I restyled our "mud room"! You may remember how I solved our "No Mudroom Lots of Stuff" … Continue reading Repurposed Hutch, Round Two!
Whew! It has been a minute! I tried to unplug a bit for the month of September, blogging included. BUT... I'm back and so excited to show you our favorite renovation project since we started this circus. Awhile back I posted some before pictures of our laundry room, and you can read about that here. … Continue reading Before & After: Laundry Room
Next up on the renovation list: the laundry room! As far as updated, functional spaces go, my laundry room is currently best described with the screamer emoji. You know this one... the little blue man with his hands by his face and pained expression? Yep... That's the current state of affairs. And guess what? I … Continue reading Laundry Room: Before
The powder bathroom has been done for about a week and a half! I would have taken pictures sooner, but it took me a week to decide where I wanted the towel bar (talk about majoring on the minors!) We pretty much gutted this bathroom and started from scratch. I'll let the pictures do the … Continue reading Before & After: Powder Bathroom
It's done! Andrew and I completed the finishing touches on the floor last night, the kitchen is put back together, and this mama is a happy lady. We started this project about 10 days ago, and while it hasn't been a perfect experience, I'd say it's been a good one. Most of our work was done … Continue reading Tiling the Kitchen Floor
We moved into this new house last June and promptly started renovating everything in July. We have been here now for 9 months, completed a ton of projects, and are still plugging along. Overall the experience has been largely positive. I understand that DIY is not for everyone, but Andrew and I are having a great time working … Continue reading Before & After: A Full Home Progress Update
When we were looking for houses, a bonus room was on our must-have list. I instantly loved the layout of the bonus room in our new house because it is right off the den... Close enough to know what's going on, but I don't have to actually be in the room to supervise kiddos. When we moved it was one of … Continue reading Before & After: Bonus Room Makeover!
