Master Bathroom Reveal

Budget bathroom remodel

A few weeks ago I was working on my linen closet makeover and taking pictures of the finished product. I was perched on the vanity counter, pressed up again the mirror, when I looked around and realized that I had never posted a reveal of my master bathroom remodel. You know, the one Adam and I started in 2013 and haven't worked on in over a year? … [Read more...]



Linen Closet Organization (and the end of my pink walls!)

Organize with baskets

I've done a lot of painting during the seven years we've lived in this house. A lot. Most rooms have been painted three or more times... Adam jokes that there are so many layers of paint on the walls that I've actually decreased the square footage of our home. There is one spot that has yet to be caressed by a paintbrush though, the single … [Read more...]



Interior Inspiration

kitchen 1

One of my goals with this new house is to have the actual house have personality, not just the stuff in it. Most new homes I see these days (I know because I stalk realtor.com for fun, still) are big, beige, drywall boxes. Even the expensive ones...they're all the same. I want this home to be truly unique and custom. I want it to be functional and … [Read more...]



Round Inlay Table…err, Wall Medallion

Make you own faux bone inlay furniture! Looks amazing and is a fraction of the cost of the real thing.

Every night for the last two weeks I've told myself that I would write about this table, and every night one of three things happened instead - Judah cried all night. He just turned four months, but I swear that boy is teething. I instead spent hours online researching stuff for the new house. The last few nights have been all about windows. … [Read more...]

10 ways to decorate above your bed

10 ways to decorate above your bed

Lately I've been spending time mindlessly scrolling through pinterest and Houzz (what else can you really do when breastfeeding at 3am?), gathering ideas for something to hang above the bed in our master bedroom. There are lots of great options out there, so I thought I'd put together a post showcasing a few of them. 1. Art - This … [Read more...]



Planked Walls and Upholstered Headboards (master bedroom progress)

colorful bedroom makeover

Well, the master bedroom is slowly coming along, looking better and better each month! I'm trying to work on it a little at a time and not stress, since I realize we may never fully finish it before we sell our house. I'm okay with that, and in the meantime I'm really enjoying having a master bedroom that doesn't make me cringe. Anyway, this … [Read more...]



How we’ve been spending our weekends (a land update)

Ferns

When I first introduced y'all to the property we are building our house on it was the middle of winter and nothing was green. Well, I'm happy to say that is no longer the case! (these were taken before all the crazy flooding here in Texas) The creek is gorgeous. There are SO MANY ferns that you can't even get to the water, and the … [Read more...]

How (not) to make saloon doors

How to make swinging saloon doors in less than an hour and for about $7! Such a fun idea for a kids room!

Sometimes DIY projects around here turn out great. Sometimes they are giant failures. And sometimes they look great and are a failure at the same time. This is one of those projects. About five years ago I removed the closet door from my boy's room. Most people love doors on closets because you can hide the mess... I like closets not … [Read more...]

Today's a big day y'all, a big big day. Why? Because I finished the boy's room! This room makeover has been dragging on for many, many years.

pallet wall decor

Today I have a simple tutorial for y'all, the pallet sign that was in my master bedroom makeover last week. First thing you will need is a pallet, obviously. I know pallet projects have been all the rage lately, but I haven't ever really used them. Then one day Adam came across a stack of them behind his work and came home with these … [Read more...]

Ten home improvement projects I would do again

ten home improvement projects I would do again

Well, I didn't really expect to be sitting around my house writing posts this week, but alas, here I am...41 weeks pregnant. According to the doctor there are no signs that I will go into labor in the next week, so he scheduled me for an induction on Wednesday if nothing happens before then. I'm praying it doesn't come to that though, because … [Read more...]
