So excited to share our built-in banquette with you today! We have wanted to do this for a long time and finally got things rolling in January and now it is complete. I was waiting for the shelves to arrive to share it with you. Come see how it looks and what I learned!
I shared a peek of the new wallpaper we applied to the dormer ceiling in our family room on my Spring Home Tour. Today I shared more pictures of the finished space and how easy it was to install. I also shared the saga of the Lego’s in this room- there was kind of a little drama with my daughter after I moved them. Thankfully we resolved it…come see our solution.
It has almost been a year since we set up this nursery for our baby boy. I shared what has worked and a few changes we have made- including a new side table. I gave tips on how we painted the furniture in our babies room- the safest way with low VOC- great tips for painting any furniture.
Don’t let the title of this blog post scare you away if you hate pink. Well actually if you hate pink- ummmm you could find something for someone else:)?! We are in the process of painting our piano and this might be a hint to what we are painting it. I did share 12 of my favorite pink things right now from pillows to sandal’s all fresh for Spring.
And if you are one of the people who asked what my daughters dresser is painted and the chair that is up to our piano now- well I shared that in this post too. This blog post just makes me happy!
I sent my husband on a “fun” errand to get 6 different gray paint samples to try on our interior kitchen door. We were ready for a change. We ended up painting it in my husbands first choice and it was actually my last choice. Come see how it looks and what the winning gray was.
I thought about maybe doing shiplap on the walls above our soon to be banquette in our kitchen.
Then I started to think is shiplap a fad? It is everywhere you turn and especially if you watch the show Fixer-uper on HGTV.
I turned to google, since that is my source of reliable information, epically come homework time.
And I found a few opinions on the matter and also some of my favorite images of shiplap. Come read the consensus on shiplap.
This photo was my inspiration for the area by our fridge. It really helps to define the space and created a little “command center” Pop over and see what our the other side of our fridge looks like. And how we make the best use of our space.
Ella, my oldest just turned 9. We had a fun birthday party for her that actually would be fun for any party. I was surprised to find canvas’s are pretty inexpensive when bought in bulk and acrylic paints are so fun to use. Come see how they turned out and a great way to mix in kids art into your home.
I started my Instagram account on a whim. We had been in our new home in CT for about 4 months and I needed a creative outlet. I was unsure of if I should just use my personal Instagram account and share design ideas that way. I bounced ideas off of my good friend Rachel and she was SO great to encourage me. Within the first 6 months I had close to 50k followers then a little over a year I had 100k followers. I shared things I learned along the way and also some of my TOP pictures from my Instagram account.
Happy Friday! I have to share how much I love our new hanging chair. I sing whenever I talk about it. Who knew something like a hanging chair could make me so happy! Actually I knew. I have been wanting one ever since birth…not really but close. Come see how the chair looks in the girls bedroom and the Christmas gift my husband had them make for me in their refreshed bedroom.
Hair is a big deal at our house. I have always had a lot of hair- my husband will tease me and call me “Simba” from the Lion King after I blow dry it. It gets pretty frizzy! I was excited to partner with Dove’s #LoveYourHair campaign to encourage mothers to pass along hair confidence to their daughters. Come see how we really try to love our hair, without tears and where I end up doing their hair most mornings in our little cape.
I shared the top paint questions I get on my blog from things we have painted in our home. My favorite gray, white, black, navy and what our entire home is. Come see the three projects we just painted in all of those colors! I LOVE how our barn track door looks now, come tell me what you think!
