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
Happy Friday, y'all! I have to show you an update of our latest project! Awhile back, I found a few pictures of these old wooden wire spools ... I thought, 'oh baby, that has my name written all over it.' I found one online and came so close to buying it, but then life got busy … Continue reading Refurbished: Wooden Spool
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!
In spite of having a newborn, we have been able to complete a few small projects around the house. Natalie is a very easy newborn (as far as newborns go), and my husband gets antsy without a to-do list! Last fall I found the top of a hutch at the thrift store for $10. I … Continue reading Repurposed: The Thrifted Hutch
We made the switch from Mac's crib to a twin trundle awhile back. Overall, I would say it has gone really well! Mac is excited to be in his new room, and I think he likes the idea of having a "big boy bed like Daddy's". He keeps telling me that his old crib is for sharing with Baby Natalie, which … Continue reading Big Boy Bedroom
This past weekend was great... Between the snow, family time, church, and a few little projects I was a happy girl. (Mac really likes the idea of the white stuff, but isn't so keen on the reality. I think he gets it from me.) The sewing bug has hit! Things have slowed down now that … Continue reading Weekend Recap!
One thing that gave me pause about buying this house is that there is no official mudroom space. We had ZERO storage space at our house in Chattanooga, and everything just seemed to pile up on the end of the kitchen table. While there is a separate laundry room in our new house, it's not close enough to the … Continue reading How To: Fake a Mudroom
