    Dirty Little Secret.

    Hi Friends, Today I wanted to talk about a BIG issue. You know how when you’re on Pinterest, every house looks like a model home and you think to yourself, “No one could possibly live there! Where’s the mess?!?” No one? – just me? Well, today I’m going to share my tricks on how to hide the things…

    Bathroom Redo. – Part IV

    Hi Guys! So our half bath is pretty much done now! It was fun working on it, but eventually you just want the project to be done so you can move on to the next space! Because it is such a small room that gets no natural light, it’s hard to photograph, but I did…

    Bathroom Redo – Part III

    Hi Guys! I’m going to give some more updates on our bathroom. Still not done, but almost there. Just a few finishing touches are left. I finished painting the walls. I painted them in Valspar’s Ballet Slippers. It’s a super light blush pink color. Then, on the wall behind the toilet, I painted this accent…

    You light up my life.

    Let’s talk about lights. Every single time I go to the hardware stores, I am so disappointed by their lighting selection. It’s not their fault. They’re just carrying what’s popular. They’re just trying to give the people what they want. Apparently I’m not people, because I just don’t want what they’ve got. The people that…

    Bathroom Redo. – Part II

    Hi! So back to our super tiny bathroom makeover… We had to do something to cover up all the nasty that was left behind from ripping off the laminate backsplash, so we chose to tile over it. So much easier than trying to spackle and sand and tape and paint and I’m getting tired just typing…

    It’s the little things.

    Hi Guys! Sometimes I have a good idea for a project, and then I get done with it and realize it needs something more. A lot of the design of my house is about the details and styling. I’m one of those people that is constantly moving stuff around to try and figure out where…

    Bathroom Redo.

    Okay. So we have this really tiny bathroom off our entry hallway and from the moment I saw it, I knew we needed to give it a “little” facelift. Usually I’m pretty good at gauging how long a project is going to take and I thought this would be two weekends, tops. Nope! Ha. It’s…

    Darkening the Doorway.

    When we were touring our house for the first time, I walked up to go inside and saw the cutest doorbell. I like to say that I knew we were going to buy this house just based on that right there. I think it was the only thing in the house that I would have…

    A Touch of Blush.

    Hi All, In between our kitchen and living rooms we have this sort of floating wall. The kitchen side houses our pantry and some other cupboards and the living room side was just a blank space. After we painted all the walls and trim in the kitchen, dining, living room and entry a bright white…

    Kitchen Part III: Finishing Touches

    Hi Guys! So we painted the cabinets and the countertops (yay!). I also took some time to paint the window trim black. Once we had taken all the plastic down, the kitchen felt like it was really starting to come together. Since my day job involves looking at catalogs for kitchen and bathroom fixtures all…
