Laundry Room Makeover

Laundry Room Makeover

When Tyler and I got married, we searched high and low for a good rental property and settled on a cute little cape cod that we thought was *perfect* for us. We were so excited to be getting married, moving in together and starting this new chapter that we were blind to the absent front hall closet, lack of pantry and the laundry closet located in the kitchen. Now, we did pretty good with a cute coat rack in lieu of the closet and storing our food in an antique armoire instead of a pantry, but the laundry closet thing…wow. Some people may not be bothered by this, but I couldn’t stand stepping around laundry baskets and having piles of towels and sheets in the way of cooking. When we decided to buy a house, an actual laundry ROOM was on the top of my wish list! Continue reading “Laundry Room Makeover”

{DIY} Picture Ledge

{DIY} Picture Ledge

In case you didn’t already know, I am a crazy dog lady. If you open the camera app on my phone and scroll through my pictures, 98% of them are of my dogs. I follow them around like paparazzi every day because they are just so darn cute. All my fellow dog people can relate. Don’t lie, you know you get excited when someone says, “Do you have a picture of your dog?” Oh do I? Ya wanna see them playing? Eating? Sniffing around? Wrestling each other? Being good? Being bad? Wearing a shirt? Wearing my hat? Riding in the car? Sleeping? I got you covered! I cannot even stand how cute they are. I just squeeze their faces all the time. And yes, in case you are wondering, pitbulls love to be squeezed. Continue reading “{DIY} Picture Ledge”

Master Bedroom Reveal

Master Bedroom Reveal

 

When we moved into our little fixer upper, we got pulled in a million different directions working on a million different projects. Our master bedroom really took a backseat. I think it is because you can shut the door and pretend it isn’t there. We focused so much on our living space with painting and furnishing and just kept our bedroom on the “to-do” list behind a shut door.  Continue reading “Master Bedroom Reveal”

{Before + After} Exterior

 

Now that we hired a painter and picked out colors…it was time to let the magic happen! Painting began while I was working, so you can imagine my excitement driving home that day. I was literally holding my breath driving through the neighborhood! What the heck was I about to come home to? Was it going to be amazing? Was the white too bright? Too yellow? Did it look okay with our brown roof? Was I going to cry tears of joy or tears of regret? Was it a good idea or bad idea to paint that brick? I know, I know. Paint is paint and paint can be changed…for a pretty penny! We had to get this right the first time! Continue reading “{Before + After} Exterior”
