If you’ve followed along with SLB for any amount of time, you know I mostly post about home decor and DIYs. Have I ever told you why I love a cozy home, though? Sure, aesthetics are great. Yes, I love a good vintage find, and I absolutely want to live in a space that both […]

July 7, 2017 | No Comments

Y’all, I got inspired the other day! As per usual, scrolling through Instagram I came across the most beautiful spaces ever, but something that kept making an appearance over and over were letterboards. I’ve been wanting one ever since Magnolia Flour was opened and I saw the cute cupcake saying Joanna Gaines had put on […]

How to Style Your Shelves

June 30, 2017 | 2 Comments

I love built-ins. It’s probably the one thing they take out on Fixer Upper that I sometimes cry over … okay, not really cry, but I’m thinking to myself, Why? They were white and could be so cute! Of course, Joanna does something awesome with that space and then I go, Oh, THAT’s why. Got it. Yep. […]

June 23, 2017 | 2 Comments

If you saw my hallway reveal, you know I’ve suddenly been overcome with the urge to paint all the things white. Amanda put it well when she said we dream in black, white and greenery. Add a little natural wood in, and that’s my happy place! Once I finished the hallway, I had this vision […]

Friends, as I write this post, I’m sitting in the airport delayed, yet again. This week, I’m headed to Florida (yay, vacation!!!), although at this point it feels like I might not get there.  By the time you read this tomorrow morning, though, hopefully I’ll be enjoying the sand and the salt air and the […]

Bathroom Update | DIY Vinyl Flooring

May 19, 2017 | 2 Comments

The last step in our journey to finishing the major upgrades in our hall bathroom was flooring. Flooring that I’d had for, oh, a month at least but hadn’t found the time to put down. We were seriously living with the subfloor exposed for all of that time, just covering it with bath mats when […]

A Very Important Question

May 8, 2017 | No Comments

My last couple of days – make that weeks – ok possibly YEARS, have been a little bit frustrating. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had some amazing days, weeks, etc. but the frustration has been tough to tackle. Why am I not closer to where I want to be in life? Why do I disappoint […]

Have Faith

May 5, 2017 | 2 Comments

Have you ever had moments where you’re not sure if it’s the Lord’s voice or your own internal monologue that you’re listening to? This was my struggle — not hearing him in the big things, but hearing him in the stillness. I left work on a Thursday just like any other day… Except instead of going […]

DIY $15 Milk Stool

May 1, 2017 | 3 Comments

It’s no secret that I love vintage and thrift store shopping. One of my favorite things to do is repurpose items that were used years and years ago. They possess charm and character that you simply can’t buy new. A few months ago, I was with my aunt shopping at Coach Light Antiques and a […]

$12 Large Framed Chalkboard

April 17, 2017 | No Comments

Pastels. Eggs. Candy. Sunday best. Worship. Easter was yesterday and was filled with all of these beautiful, fun things. I love Easter because it celebrates a fresh start. A clean slate. Spring is evident everywhere, in new blooms, in beautiful colors, a perfect picture of redemption. The Easter story is powerful, and we’ve been seeing […]

April 12, 2017 | No Comments

I’ve been such a blog slacker, friends! My hiatus wasn’t planned, but sometimes that’s just how life goes. Y’all know what I mean. At any rate, I have made some great strides on the hall bathroom in our house that I’m so excited to share and, in fact, only have the flooring and shelves left […]

Dollhouse Table Redo

April 3, 2017 | No Comments

I have always loved dollhouses and miniatures. I was so excited to give my daughter this Imaginarium dollhouse this past Christmas. I searched high and low for the perfect one. I may like to do the whole DIY thing, but I was not about building one of those hobby dollhouses…not to mention paying to do […]

Bathroom Renovation | DIY Shaker Doors

March 28, 2017 | 22 Comments

Our bathroom renovation project is coming along pretty well! It’s always a longer process when you DIY, especially with kids, because those hours are hard to pull together consistently. Overall, though, it’s going just about as planned and we are nearing the final stages! All of the tile has been regrouted and reglazed which was […]
