Hello everyone! Hope you are having a great weekend! We've been relaxing at home, and working on projects...a typical weekend for us. :-) New Kitchen Pendant Lights If you remember back to my industrial farmhouse pendant lights post in June, I was considering a lot of different options to replace the builder-provided pendant lights in my kitchen.  Well, I finally decided on some new pendant lights, and we installed them yesterday!

By | 2017-05-06T17:11:41+00:00 February 15th, 2017|Built-Ins, DIY Projects, Mudroom|

Hi Everyone!  Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day.  My honey brought me home my favorite white wine and chocolates, and we watched 24 Legacy, so I was a happy girl.  After 22 years together, it doesn’t take much! Hooray, it’s finished!!! I painted the mudroom earlier this week, and now it’s all ready for use.  This new design is so much more functional, and I just love seeing [...]

Happy Friday Everyone!  I’m feeling particularly happy today because our mudroom makeover is almost finished! Eeeeee! Just to remind you, here’s where we started. You can read about why we decided it would be a good idea to demolish a perfectly good mudroom in Mudroom Makeover: Part I. […]

Hi there! Are you guys gearing up for Halloween? I still have some decorating to do around here, and I’ll show that in a later post. It’s been slow going with all of our landscaping happening, but our house will be ready for the big day. That reminds me that I promised to post a landscaping before/after, too. A few weeks ago I shared a partial tour of our new home [...]

Mudroom Closet Reveal

We finally finished the mudroom closet! Hooray!  OK, well, it’s actually been done for a couple of weeks now, but I just didn’t find the time to stage it and make it presentable for pictures because we were too busy throwing our stuff all over it (basically, we were using it the way it’s supposed to be used). […]

Mudroom Progress – Bench Installed!

By | 2016-09-20T08:40:53+00:00 June 22nd, 2014|Built-Ins, Mudroom|

We’re making slow but steady progress in our mudroom closet.  To catch you up to date, we have already installed the flooring and plank wall. This week, we assembled the bench, installed it into the mudroom space, and put a final coat of paint on it.  We decided to keep the bottom of the mudroom bench open because, well, our family needs to be able to kick off their shoes into a [...]

Mudroom Progress – Plank Wall

By | 2016-09-20T08:34:06+00:00 June 16th, 2014|Mudroom, Plank Wall|

We made some good progress in our laundry/mudroom this weekend. We installed horizontal wall planks in the mudroom closet area, which I was super excited to do. I am in love with the look of a white plank wall, especially in a laundry or mudroom. But it was also a practical solution for us.  After the furnace and water heater were removed from the closet, we were left with new drywall [...]

Wow!  Has it really been 10 days already since my last post?  Where does the time go?  Last weekend was so busy…both kids made it on to an all-star team for baseball,which meant we had 7 baseball games last weekend!  Add in two graduation parties, and a dinner with family, and the weekend was gone in the blink of an eye. We did manage to make a little progress in [...]

Chalkboard Door

By | 2016-09-20T07:59:30+00:00 May 28th, 2014|Mudroom, Paint|

Our garage door is one solid piece of primed (never got around to painting it) wood. Boring and ugly, and it has been in this state for several years. Until this weekend, that is. I was so inspired by making my little chalkboard frame a few days ago, that I felt compelled to go bigger. So, I made our ugly garage door into a chalkboard door for the whole family [...]
