    Project Check-in.

    Hi Friends, So much has happened in our remodel over the last couple months so I thought I would take a minute to catch you all up! When you only work on your house on the weekends and most of the work is DIY, progress can feel like it’s crawling sometimes. But looking back at…

    Farewell, House.

    Hi Friends, This blog post is dedicated to the original Sunderland house. Our first home buy, the place where I learned to do all the projects, and learned so many skills that will come in handy at our new place. This home was the longest I’ve ever lived in one spot – a little over…

    The Story of Finding Our New House.

    Hi Friends! In June of 2020 we decided to talk to our mortgage lender and see how much house we could afford, if we were to decide that it was the right time to buy. We went through that process and all throughout were just casually browsing homes in our area. Then in July, we…

    How to Transform Your Bedroom In A Weekend for Under $100.

    Hi Friends, This weekend I had the itch to do a little project. Key word: little. Just a tiny something that wouldn’t take over my life like this bathroom has the last couple months. I had been swooning over Pinterest pics of picture mouldings (see below) and decided to add a little of this beautiful…

    A Master Bath Update (Among Other Things).

    Hi Friends, If you caught my latest Instagram post, then you know our upstairs bath is just about complete. We call it the master bath, although technically it’s a shared bath because of its two doors. We just have no one to share it with yet. I’m picking out hardware and accessories this week and…

    Adventures in Railing Construction.

    Hi Friends, Remember when I said if you had the choice between one project or four you should always do four? Well that doesn’t always apply. Unless you’re renovating, then it almost always applies. When we ripped out the hardwoods and carpet to put in our gorgeous new flooring we were left with the decision…

    Prepare to be Floored.

    Hi Friends, A long long time ago in a land far far away…just kidding. Last fall (which isn’t super long ago) at our house (which is actually right where I’m sitting) we decided to get crazy and rip out all our flooring on the main level of our house. We live in a rambler so…

    Hi Friends, Remember before Christmas when I posted the before pics of our family room? No? I’ll give you a minute to look them over again here. You’re back? Okay. I just want to apologize for keeping you in suspense for SO long. I wrote the before post almost two months ago now, thinking I…

    All About That Tile.

    Hi Friends, So I will admit, I have a thing for tiles. I don’t know why but every stinking time I’m at the hardware store I want to stop and browse! Even if we have no need for tile, you can find me in the tile aisle. You can imagine when we started remodeling our…

    Help, my bathroom is ugly!

    Hi Friends, You know how kitchens and bathrooms sell houses? Our house sat on the market for over 100 days before we put an offer in! We were the only ones lining up to buy our house. Why? Because the kitchen and bathrooms were Terrible. Yes, capital “T”! Because my husband is a plumber, we…
