    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 […]

  • DIY Honed Marble.

    DIY Honed Marble.

    Hi Friends, A few months ago we were out shopping at this discount home improvement store, just browsing for nothing in particular, when we found some marble tiles. Fifteen square feet of polished black marble with dramatic white veining for only $30. Did I know what I wanted it for yet? No. Did I let […]

    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 […]

  • New Life for an Old Coffee Table.

    New Life for an Old Coffee Table.

    Hi Friends,  A couple weeks ago I started working on getting some stored “project” furniture out of our garage. Maybe there’s also a console and six dining chairs in there too but I’m not a hoarder- okay? I just happen to find some good furniture on fb marketplace sometimes and then I don’t have time […]

    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. We are reconfiguring our back hallway area to make much better use of the space. The back hallway is off our living room […]

    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. […]

    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 […]
