  • Farmhouse Dining Room Reveal
    June 23, 2017

    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.

  • Bathroom Update | DIY Vinyl Flooring
    May 19, 2017

    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 ...

  • DIY $15 Milk Stool
    May 1, 2017

    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

    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 ...

  • Dollhouse Table Redo
    April 3, 2017

    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

    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 ...

  • DIY Princess Poppy Troll Headband
    March 21, 2017

    The first time I saw the Trolls movie with my 3 year old daughter, I was just as captivated as she was! It’s an adorable movie with upbeat music and positive messages: being happy is always within your own control, be positive, show love to others. Not only that but the characters are so cute! ...
