Breezeway Makeover and Family Dinners: No Excuses Edition

For years now Adam and I have said we should start hosting big family dinners at our house once a month, and for years now we have come up with excuses not to. Either we were too busy, or the old house was too crowded, or the new house was too unfinished, or a variety of other things.  We ran out of excuses after laying sod a few weeks ago though, … [Read more...]



The Most Organized Pantry in the World

Okay, that title might be a biiit of a stretch, but either way...the pantry is complete! I posted the first part of the pantry redo months ago, and even though we finished a majority of it soon after I refused to post it until it was 100% complete. Adam and have a problem of only finishing things 90% of the way and moving onto the next project (I … [Read more...]



Master Closet Reveal!

It’s master closet reveal day! I showed y’all the fully installed but empty closet over two months ago, then I had a baby, the holidays came, things got crazy, and the final reveal has been a long time coming. First and foremost, I am so in love with it. I’m not usually one to gush over things, but I’m also not used to awesome organized … [Read more...]



Southwestern Guest Room Reveal

Time for another reveal post! Can you tell I'm trying to tie up loose ends on this house before I completely move onto the next one? Although this room turned out so well that I think I'm just going to move it right into the next house and try to change as little as possible. Anyway, here it is! Here is what the room looked like … [Read more...]



Master Bathroom Reveal

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...]



Cowboy Bedroom REVEAL!

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. It's kinda embarrassing how long it has taken, but I have to remember that this isn't a TV show where room makeover take 30 minutes, or some awesome professional blog where things get done in a timely … [Read more...]



Quick and Easy Master Bedroom Makeover

Many of you know that I'm part of the Better Homes and Gardens Live Better Network, and every other month I am challenged to use BHG products in a different way. Well this last month has been pretty busy for us, and the last thing on my mind was blog deadlines. So a few weeks ago (when I was about a week overdue with baby #3) I finally remembered … [Read more...]



Small Hallway Reveal (It only took me a year!)

Last November I stenciled the little hallway the connects the master bedroom to the living room. Calling it a hallway is actually quite generous, "nook" would describe it better. I stenciled it using the Birch Forest Stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils, which was time-consuming but turned out great. I fully intended to decorate the area after I … [Read more...]



Front Porch Reveal and a History of Clutter

Oh, our porch. Those of y'all that have been following for a while know what a blessing and a curse it is. We love our porch...it's HUGE, shady, and pretty much amazing. It is also our dumping grounds...it's where most activities happen (like projects) and it is normally looks like a disaster. AND it is right out there in the open and the first … [Read more...]



Side Yard Reveal!

*This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Miracle-Gro. All opinions are 100% mine. Last year we built our garage (which we love BTW) and added a sidewalk to connect it to the house. We also had a fence installed around the backyard, and all of that created a little triangle of secluded yard space. I'm using the term 'yard' loosely, … [Read more...]



Guest Room Before and After

Since the guest room was a pre-blog project I don't have any pictures of it in progress. Trust me when I say that every item in this room could be its own post! Here are the before and after pictures...I wanted this room to have a totally different color scheme and design than the rest of my house, and it certainly does! . The … [Read more...]



Laundry Room Before and After

I love (LOVE!) before and after pictures.  Our laundry room is the only room that is pretty much complete and I feel good about posting an 'after' picture. First, the before... First thing to go was that awful paint color. I painted it a muted green, same as in our living room and guest/kids bath. Next, the cabinets. This isn't our forever … [Read more...]
