Kitchen Design Plan

Work on our kitchen remodel has officially begun! This has been a long time coming. Other projects around our house took much longer than expected to complete (I’m looking at you popcorn ceiling removal and hall bath remodel), which put our whole house renovation timeline behind what we had optimistically hoped for in the beginning. One thing with renovations you hear time and time again is everything takes longer than you expect… well I can attest that is most certainly…

Hall Bath Reveal

Our hall bath has surely gotten the best of us. We are finally done... 2 months late and well past the One Room Challenge scheduled room reveals. Who knew such a tiny room could take so long? The 6 week One Room Challenge has turned into a 16 week challenge for us. Just as we were in the final stretch of installing the toilet, sink, and all the accessories we ran into a few road blocks. For a reminder, here…

One Room Challenge Week 5: Hall Bath

One more week left in the One Room Challenge. I can hardly believe it. How have 5 weeks already gone by? We didn't get quite as far this week as I was hoping, but we still have one more week left to pull everything together thank goodness. This past week we primed (only one coat of primer and I wish I had done one more), painted the planks (2 coats of paint) and painted the walls (1 coat of paint).…

One Room Challenge Week 2: Hall Bath

It's the second week of the One Room Challenge! If you missed out on the first week you can check it out here. We are making progress in the hall bath. This past week we had new hardwood flooring installed in the bathroom (as well as a majority of the main level of the house). We decided to go ahead and run the hardwoods into the bathroom because there is no shower/tub in the bathroom so we don't have to…

I am joining this fall edition of the One Room Challenge as a guest participant.

Our New Home: The Tour

Two months ago we closed on our new home. While we loved our first home, we knew it was not where we were meant to be and our hearts were being tugged in a new direction. We made the decision to sell our first home, a two-year old new build house, for something older that needed a bit of love. As soon as we stepped foot in our new house we knew it was home. We were able to get…

The Many Colors of a Bar Cart

Hello! Welcome friends! This is the momentous first post on this little ol' blog. Momentous for myself at least. I took a big leap outside of my comfort zone and started The Adored Abode as a way of sharing my home design, decor, and styling ideas. I am so very excited to begin this journey of blogging and following passion of creating a well-loved home. On to the first post! About two years ago my husband and I moved into…
