Having a pantry is somewhat of a luxury, but having a dream pantry, wow. I smile every time I walk in there now, which is a far cry from what it was a month ago. When we bought our house, the pantry had wire shelves, which are standard and they were fine. Fast forward to … Continue reading HOW I DIYed MY DREAM PANTRY!
The holiday season is my absolute favorite time of year. I'll take a snowstorm, hot cocoa, and Hallmark movies over a summer BBQ any day! And while gifts are definitely not the center of the Christmas season for us, I still have so much fun picking out gifts that I hope my loved ones will … Continue reading HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE 2021
Last Christmas I rolled up 6 certificates, tied them with a ribbon, and put them in a box under my parent's Christmas tree. I love to give meaningful gifts, but this one probably takes the cake. Both of my parents are very busy people who have been wanting to update their very orange kitchen for … Continue reading THE GREEN KITCHEN
When we had our floors redone this past spring, we had to remove the wire shelving that was in our pantry and I made the decision not to reinstall it because I didn’t love it. So, yes, it’s been about 4 months now that we haven’t had a functional pantry. We’ve been using a bookcase … Continue reading PANTRIES THAT ARE INSPIRING ME
Fast Growing Trees supplied the trees for this project. As always, all opinions are my own. I grew up in Northern Michigan where our home was nestled in the middle of the woods and you had to drive 30 minutes to get anywhere. I loved going out in that forest and building forts with my … Continue reading It’s Tree Planting Season!
Painted countertops - whaaat? That’s basically the reaction Jordan had when I told him my idea for my parents’ countertops. Their counters were a dated, gray laminate with wood trim that matched the cabinets and they desperately wanted something that would breathe a little life into the kitchen. New stone countertops are beautiful but pricey, … Continue reading DIY FAUX MARBLE COUNTERTOPS
Three years ago (almost exactly) I painted the cabinets in our Arkansas home. I did more than just paint the cabinets in that kitchen but holy cow - transforming those dated oak cabinets to a clean, white color was incredibly impactful. I still remember the feeling I had after just the primer went on because … Continue reading HOW TO PAINT YOUR KITCHEN CABINETS THE RIGHT WAY
Drumroll please….the blog post you all have been asking for us finally here! I rebuilt this shower just before I started my blog and have received so many requests for a post dedicated to this project, so here it is. Here is where we started. A builder's grade fiberglass shower. Some of my pain points … Continue reading HOW TO DIY A TILED SHOWER
What started out as a "quick" bathroom makeover due to project creep (we redid all of our floors on the main level) has turned into one of my favorite spaces I have ever done! I really stretched myself creatively in this space and I feel like every time I take those risks, it just makes … Continue reading POWDER ROOM REVEAL
I didn't originally have our main floor powder bathroom on the renovation schedule this year - there are a lot of other spaces that I've been itching to do first - but when we redid our floors, this bathroom succumbed to "project creep." Even though it was kind of an unplanned project, I have been … Continue reading HERRINGBONE IN THE POWDER BATHROOM
