Laundry Room Planning

With our kitchen 90% done we are already planning our next project… the laundry room, which happens to be right off the kitchen. When we moved into our house the laundry room was an empty room. The walls had painted over wallpaper, but other than that it was a blank slate. We just moved in the washer and dryer and put up some temporary shelving unit to act as a pantry. After our popcorn ceilings were scraped, skim coated, and…

My First Blogger Conference Experience: Haven 2017

It was about 3 years ago that I even figured out what a blog was and a little over a year ago when I decided to take the plunge to start my own blog. I had read about the Haven Conference on other blogs I follow, which is a home design and DIY blogging conference that is held every summer, and knew it was something I wanted needed to go to if I was going to make something more of…

Kitchen Update: How to Paint Kitchen Cabinets

If you have been checking in on Instagram you probably noticed that we painted our kitchen cabinets, and actually the kitchen is alomsttt done!!! Now it's time to catch up  on my posting back-log, because goodness knows there's a lot to share! Let's chat about how we painted our kitchen cabinets. This piece of the kitchen renovation was one of the two biggest projects we tackled for the space (the other being DIY faux-crete counters, which deserves it's a post of…

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…
