    Painted Kitchen Cabinet

    I had my brand new classic white kitchen cabinets painted. Call me crazy for painting brand new cabinets, but I LOVE them painted! Last year we remodeled our over 100 year old home. There were so many decisions to be made and a tight timeline so I picked a safe option. Classic white. Over the past twelve months I’ve tried to add warmth to our kitchen in several ways. Finally, I decided to do the CRAZY and paint the brand. new. cabinets.  This was not a DIY.. Let me be clear, this was not a DIY for us. I read lots of reviews until I found a local painter with…

    Peel & Stick Tile

    I’ll start by saying this was my husband’s idea! He said, “we should order some peel and stick tile and do a backsplash for our tub/shower.” Of course I loved that idea!!  I jumped online and ordered this tile . No doubt, it definitely is BEAUTIFUL! However, my husband pictured using 12″x12″ vinyl tile.  The tile I ordered is a few steps up from that! It looks and feels like a mosaic tile. It’s GORGEOUS stone-like peel and stick tile! But it’s a little more work than what my husband meant when he said peel and stick tile. Let’s be clear – 100% WORTH IT!  The tile  comes in sheets with a backing…

    Add Texture to Any Wall Quick and Easy

    Looking for a quick way to add amazing texture to a wall? Read this!! We took pole wrap from Home Depot (linked here) and nailed it to a wall in our small bathroom. This little bathroom is small but has so much potential! It’s the project I’m working on right now. So much in this space is white – walls, tub and white tiles. This 1 hour DIY really elevated this little bathroom! I’m already wanting to do this DIY again somewhere else in our home!   It was a little long for our walls, so we trimmed a little off each panel so it would fit our wall.  We used…

    5 Tips Keep Fresh Cut Flowers Thriving

    Valentine’s Day is LOVE day, but it’s also flower day in my book! I’m not a florist, but my mom was before I was born so I’ve learned a lot about florals from her. She taught me a few tips and tricks I wanted to share. Flowers are such a sweet gesture. I love receiving them personally. I don’t know about you but I want to keep my fresh flowers alive for as long as possible! These tips will help you make the most of your gorgeous arrangement. First things first! TRIM! Trim each stem about 3/4 of an inch at an angle. Then, simply place them in water! Remember, they’re…

    Built-Ins Decor

    These are the built-ins in our living room. I know some people really don’t enjoy decorating shelves. But me, well, I love it! For the most part I keep things very simple on our shelves. I have my favorite pieces that stay on these shelves season after season. Then a few times a year I’ll swap out a thing or two to keep them fresh and matching the season.  For example, after Christmas decor came down, I added this gold lantern and flameless candles. Gold lantern linked here. This gives a warm glow for winter but it will be perfect through spring. I also recently added a textured heart wreath. Heart wreath linked…

    Retreat Green

    So… I bought green paint! If you know me, you know this is very unlike me and my usual style. I naturally gravitate towards neutrals when it comes to our home (Remington’s room being my only exception). I used the color ‘Frostworks’ by Sherwin Williams in Remi’s room and his room is my favorite room in the house. This is what gave me a push to try green somewhere else! Before the holiday season, we started remodeling our laundry room. We only have a few more final touches to go before it’s finished – one being the cabinetry! This week I bought a cabinet and I’m painting it the color ‘Retreat’ Sherwin Williams.  Retreat is a…

    Office Space Glam up

    A sure way to increase productivity is glamming up your office space. We have a small room we call “the office”. Currently, it’s a his and hers situation.  I have one side of the room and my husband has the other. So many people, like us, work from home these days and that change is welcomed by most. Lots of us have found small little nooks to call our “office” space in our home, and those little spaces can be so cute if we have the right set up! I gave my little desk space a GLAM UP in one afternoon. The change is amazing, and I’m so happy with…

    After Christmas

    As much as I love decorating for Christmas in our home, I also love taking the decor down when Christmas is over. Taking down the tree, pulling down the garland, and sweeping my house… I love a fresh clean slate after Christmas. Below I’m sharing the steps I take perosnally when putting away my Christmas decor I cannot emphasize this one enough… Containers! I make sure I have plenty of large containers with lids to keep all of my precious Christmas trinkets safe during the off-season. Ideally, I love the clear containers so I can see what’s in them without having to open them back up. Before anything else, I start by taking down my Christmas…
