H-E-L-L-O, Friends! Happy 2019! It has been quite a minute... but I'm back and want to share what we've been up to! We left off last time as I finished the 12 Days of Blogmas, and wouldn't you know we found out shortly after that, SURPRISE!, Baby #3 - a beautiful little girl - will … Continue reading Updated Kitchen
Oh man, where has the time gone?! It has been a busy month+, and I feel like we need a round of catch-up! I'm going to let the pictures do the talking! We are still tinkering with the renovations! Most recently Andrew finished our main staircase. Per usual, I dreamt it up and he made … Continue reading Fall Updates!
If you're just catching up, our house was built in the early 1980's. This means smaller rooms, some with no lighting, and some with awkward shapes. I'm exercising my interior design muscles big time with this one to make everything flow! For example, our dining room used to be a formal living room... with no … Continue reading Mirror, Mirror, On the Wall.
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!
This past week has been very productive on the home reno front! I don't have a ton of time, so hopefully these pictures will speak for themselves! Lighting We added can lights to the den and to the playroom. The den has been very dark from day one, and we could not believe the huge … Continue reading Project Update: Lighting and More!
Since we finished the laundry room earlier this month, we've been plugging away at a few small projects. You may remember that the dining room - previously the formal sitting room - has no lights! It's on the north side of our house, so things get pretty dim in there as the day progresses. I … Continue reading Light It Up!
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
