    Guest Bath, But Make It Like a Hotel.

    Hi Friends, Last year we took our main level bath and turned it into a laundry room/mud room. But it turns out going upstairs every time you need to use the bathroom isn’t a trend that’s catching on anytime soon. Good thing we had a MASSIVE bedroom across the hall that we could steal some…

    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…

    Real Big Plans. (A Remodel Story)

    Hi Friends, Let’s catch up on what’s happening at the Sunderland house! If you’ve been following along on Instagram, then you already know we started a pretty big remodel project last month.

    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…

    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…

    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?…
