    It’s Kismet – A Door Story.

    Hi Friends, The best DIY’s come with a killer backstory, and this one is my favorite story to date. A couple years ago when we first started house hunting, we came across this house that wasn’t actually for sale. It was a rental listing, but times were crazy so we asked if maybe they would […]

    The Laundry Room/Mud Room of My Actual Dreams.

    Hi Friends, Today is an exciting day and a day ten months in the making! I finally get to show you all our completed back entry space! Let me remind you where we started: Let’s take a moment to take this all in. At the end of this hallway is the door that leads into […]

    Phase 1 Kitchen Refresh.

    Hi Friends, Let me introduce you to our new kitchen. There are things I appreciate about it, including the storage space. Our last kitchen didn’t have nearly this many cabinets and I always struggled to make room for pots and pans and serving ware, etc. There are also so many things about this space that […]

    Our Phase 1 Master Bathroom Renovation.

    Hi Friends, Today is exciting because I finally finished up the very first project in our new house and it’s a good one. I knew a full on bathroom remodel in our master bath was not going to be a priority for a few years at least but because it’s our day in and day […]

    Master Bath Remodel.

    Hi Friends, So this has been a long time coming – our upstairs bath is finally done! (Ahem, I mean, we’re still waiting on the shower door, but I just couldn’t wait any longer to share this!) We’ve been very slowly working on this bathroom for over a year! Yeah, I can’t believe it’s been […]

    DIY Home Fitness Studio.

    Hi Friends, A couple weeks ago my gym closed. Which is hard for many reasons but mostly because it’s like my second home. I teach there two nights a week and I’m there at least two other days a week working out with my sister or taking class from my friends who are also instructors. […]

    Laundry Room Reveal.

    Hi Friends, It’s been a minute since I talked about our laundry room that we started work on LAST YEAR. Where does the time go? I feel like one of those homeowners on HGTV where the Property Brothers show up and they have like 16 uncompleted reno projects going on in their house. You know? […]
