I swear as soon as we finish one project we’re onto the next! Chappy and I have been dreaming of Christmas time! We’ve always wanted to fix his old record player and dance around the house listening to Christmas records. Unfortunately we couldn’t fix his player but we did just buy a new one so… Continue reading Record Player Table
Faux Shiplap Kitchen Island
When we decided to panel the island I thought we would be super organized and get it done quick since we had already done Waylen's room. (You can check that project out HERE.) Now we actually did finish it quickly but OH MY GOSH did we make the stupidest mistakes along the way. First, we took… Continue reading Faux Shiplap Kitchen Island
DIY Coat Rack Shelf
The main issue I have with our new house is something that really only comes up around Christmas time. We have no mantel! When building our house we had the option to add a fireplace but since we have a townhome the placement was not ideal and it also took out one of our downstairs… Continue reading DIY Coat Rack Shelf
Sometimes the easiest project turns into the biggest nightmare. Ha. After paneling our dining wall with pallet wood I thought this project was going to be a breeze. (Honestly it wasn’t thattt bad, but it should have been a lot easier/quicker.) Basically the entire project was supposed to be simply buying plywood, having the store… Continue reading Faux Shiplap
The original plan was to save upgrading our light fixtures until the very last project but clearly I just couldn’t wait. Before we installed our pallet wall I really didn’t mind living with the dining light as is (I honestly barely noticed it) but immediately after finishing the wall I realized it HAD TO GO.… Continue reading Chandelier
If you know my husband you know he has a slight obsession with craft cocktails. I really can’t complain though since I have been given the job of number 1 taste tester. As soon as we started to build our house he was been pretty adamant about getting a bar. I kid you not he… Continue reading Bar Rehab
The time is finally here!!! My husband and I have wanted to do this project since we first put a deposit down on our house. Besides being an accountant my husband also runs his family’s small manufacturing company which made collecting old pallets extremely easy and the best part, FREE. When we first envisioned this… Continue reading Pallet Wall
I have always ALWAYS wanted white cabinets, grey countertops, and a subway tile backsplash with dark grout. When we found out our builder didn’t offer a subway tile option I was devastated. Thank goodness the design company our builder worked with had a white subway tile offering for another builder and was willing to sneak… Continue reading Backsplash
Let the Projects Begin!
You would think that since we bought a new construction townhome we wouldn’t have a ton of projects to do… WRONG. As awkward as this may sound considering I literally just bought one, I am really not in favor of track homes; like I was pretty adamant about never buying one. I’ve always envisioned myself… Continue reading Let the Projects Begin!
It’s official! WE ARE HOMEOWNERS! The last 24 hours have been intense to say the least. We had final walk through, pre-settlement meeting, settlement, MOVING, and of course picking up my handy dandy dad so he could assist in all the ciaos. Our goal was to get everything out of storage and into the house… Continue reading Moving Day
