One of the best things that’s ever come about in our marriage is that we’re laundry divorced. What exactly do I mean by that? I mean that my husband does his own laundry and I do mine (and the rest of the house). Once we got married he just kept on doing his laundry, he never asked me to and I never offered. It works for us and I plan to keep it that way. That’s just one less thing one my to do list! And while laundry isn’t necessarily one of the task I totally dread, I am doing it with a little bit more of a skip in my step ever since we put up these easy DIY laundry room shelves!
The best remedy for when you’re down about where you’re at is to look at how far you’ve come. While our house is far from where I’d ideally like it to be I’m having so much with the process of getting it there! The room that’s seen the most TLC is our kitchen. I didn’t want to call this post a “makeover” because, well, in my mind that would mean new floors, new appliances, etc. When what we’ve really done is just a few inexpensive kitchen updates!
Babies and toddlers have quite a bit of stuff, including toys! I’ve found that as Cora Beth is starting to play and move around more I wanted her to have a cozy place to play in our home where all her toys would be corralled together. Unfortunately there is no playroom in our 1300 sq ft home. And I won’t lie scrolling through Pinterest makes me quite envious of those that do! There are some super, super cute and functional ones out there! Maybe in our next home? But until then I needed to get creative for a solution to our no playroom problem!
We bought our house 3 years ago this month and looking back on the before pictures of this bathroom really shows how far we’ve come and how much my style has evolved! After I painted my kitchen cabinets white I knew I’d want to paint the bathroom cabinets one day and I’m so excited that 1 of 2 is now done! While I would love to replace the vanity entirely we just can’t afford that but I think the painted bathroom cabinets makes a huge difference!
I’m really looking forward to Easter this year! I guess because it’s Cora Beth’s first Easter (her Easter basket is SO cute!). On a recent Target trip I was looking through the dollar bins when I saw the cutest linen napkins and knew I had to have them! Can anyone resist those bins? If you can please tell me your secret!!! Before I knew it the napkins, some eggs and few other items were in my cart and my idea for this simple Easter tablescape was coming together! Continue reading
When I found out I was pregnant one of the things I was really looking forward to was decorating the nursery! Especially once I found out we were having a girl! A simply sweet and floral nursery was what I immediately had in mind for my baby girl’s room! I love how her room turned out and it’s probably the only room in our house that I consider “done”! So prepare for picture overload because I’m just a teeny bit proud of it!
Hey there friends! Today’s the day I finally share the office makeover reveal with you and it’s a little bittersweet. After sharing our news with you the office will now have to be a guestroom/office to make room for baby Cushman! In fact the transformation is already underway! So the pictures you see here won’t last sadly but I’m so excited to be planning a nursery!
Have you ever really wanted to take on a project but you’re kind of afraid so you just read about 5,376 tutorials on Pinterest and try to give yourself a pep talk? And then you finally go for it and you pull it off and you do a little happy dance every time you see said project? That’s exactly how I feel after I completed this painted and stained kitchen table makeover! Continue reading
Welcome to part three of an unintentional series, I’ve just gone a bit chalk paint crazy! Today is a dining chair I picked up at the Nashville Flea Market… in July. If you’re doing the math then yes it did sit in my garage for more than 6 months. I’m pretty well known for that. But I finally got around to sprucing this bad boy up!
