Our Kitchen Renovation (cost breakdown, before/after, etc)

OUR KITCHEN RENOVATION IS FINALLY DONE. *cue the obnoxious screaming* I have never cooked and cleaned more in my entire life. My new favorite hobby is finding an excuse to walk in the kitchen. I stare at it constantly, spend the majority of my time in it, and if it wasn’t frowned upon, I would […]

On Fridays 

With our kitchen renovation taking an abrupt halt, I needed a creative outlet to release some of my stress. So I opened up my cluttered paint cabinet, grabbed a tiny brush, and thought to myself, “why don’t I try to hand paint wallpaper on the wall today?” I wish I could tell you I thoughtfully […]

I know how hard it is for small businesses to compete with big box stores during the holiday season, and so I asked my community on Instagram to submit their small businesses for me to share. I hope you check them out and consider shopping small this season! Few disclaimers: I have not purchased or […]

Our backyard has been longing for one very important element: outdoor lighting. I know, I know, it’s arguably one of the most important elements of any space. As soon as the sun goes down, my kids can no longer play in the backyard because it’s so dark. And this is especially challenging during the fall/winter […]

If you’ve followed me for awhile, you know I have a repeat decor stash I have for easy decorating. In fact, I wrote an entire blog post about it here. I’m a believer that high impact decorations don’t have to be expensive or time consuming. Below is one of my favorite easy and budget friendly […]

Social media can be such a tricky beast. One minute you’re enjoying a dance video and the next you’re wondering how your internet friend keeps her house so clean. Does she have help? Why does her skin look so amazing? Her kids seem so well behaved. Her body is incredible. She looks so happy. I […]

Last week I painted my living room a beautiful black color that completely transformed the space. And once I saw how good that looked, I had to continue into the kitchen. Ok, not the entire kitchen, just the trim work (full video here). Among that trim work, was a beautiful french door that was screaming […]

This past week I painted our living room again. AGAIN. And if you’ve known me for at least 20 minutes, this should come as no surprise to you. As I type this, I’ve now painted our living room five times since we moved in. In most households that would be grounds for divorce, but lucky […]

After finishing up my son’s room last month, my daughter’s room reveal was next. If you missed it, after sharing a room for years, they decided they wanted their own rooms. My daughter took the room they used to share, and my son took what used to be the playroom. And while my daughter didn’t […]

My son’s soccer room is finally complete! It was a labor of love and really pushed my creativity. And even though I’m not a huge fan of themed rooms, I wanted my son to be happy. It was important for me to design a room that expressed his needs and his style, all while looking […]

My son wanted a signed jersey and a small t-shirt up on the wall for his soccer themed bedroom, and I could not find any cute display cases online. So I grabbed two thrifted art pieces, and I framed both. There are two different options, one is with a framed canvass, another uses an alternative […]

While I have loved branching out and finding creative ways to display art, my heart will always have a sweet spot for a beautifully curated gallery wall. My kitchen gallery wall is hands down my favorite one in our home. And as I start to gather all the art for my son’s room, I’ve noticed […]
