  • DIY Faux Shiplap on the Cheap
    September 15, 2017

    I finally have shiplap in my home!!!!!!! I’ll be honest here. Despite my desperate love of shiplap, I didn’t want to put it in this house because I knew we wouldn’t be here forever. I wanted it in my forever home. Like to have forever and look at and just absolutely settle into. But life ...

  • DIY Felt Letterboard
    July 7, 2017

    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

    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. ...

  • 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 ...

  • Entryway Makeover
    June 8, 2017

    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

    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 ...

  • How to Frame a Bathroom Mirror
    April 12, 2017

    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 ...
