{DIY} Subway Tile!

I almost chickened out 8 times before I committed to tiling the backsplash in our laundry room. If you’re getting DIY cold feet about hanging tile…seriously don’t be scared! This project ended up being my favorite we have done to date! Okay…maybe painting my bathroom floor still takes first place, but tiling was a close second! My biggest fear was using a wet saw…and now I want to put one on my Christmas list. (Hope Santa is reading this.) I promise you can do it…just read on!

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”

Y’all, I found my new favorite hang out spot! When Amy contacted me and invited me to come hang out in her little shop called Project Studio (located in Marietta, Georgia), I knew I was going to love it! A coffee in one hand and paint brush in the other…sounds like a great Saturday morning to me! It is the perfect spot to get your creative juices flowing and create something adorable for your home, classroom or business. Continue reading “Project Studio”

{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”

My Honest Experience with Whole 30

My Honest Experience with Whole 30

I recently completed 30 days of wholesome eating. No grains, no dairy, no added sugars or artificial sweeteners, no alcohol, no legumes, no soy, no MSGs. I know I usually find myself writing about DIY projects and home decor, but I am changing it up today in hopes that my story might encourage someone else to take charge of their health! I promise, you won’t regret it! Continue reading “My Honest Experience with Whole 30”

Keepsake Christmas Ornament

Keepsake Christmas Ornament

My husband is a die hard “Real Tree Person.” Even the mention of a fake tree in our house is sure to muster up eye rolls and protesting. The first year we were married, I was so excited to pick out a tree. We headed to a tree farm, tied that baby up and threw it in the back of the Jeep with the top down…this is the South after all. We drove it home and our dog peed on it immediately. I mean, it IS a tree I guess. We strung it up with lights and hung up our four ornaments, leaving quite a few empty branches. We loved it anyway. This will be the fourth Christmas Tyler and I have spent together, and our tree this year is the prettiest to date. With that being said, our top lights just stopped working and Luna is trying to eat the fake berries off of it. I guess you can’t win them all, but no one has peed on it and we have added a few ornaments to our collection. I would call that success! Continue reading “Keepsake Christmas Ornament”

{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”
