Our Dining Room: Before & After

It took awhile to complete the ol’ dining room.  I think the turning point was the picture frame molding on the wall.  And because everyone loves a good before and after I wanted to share what the living room looked like right after I installed new light fixtures (wish I had a picture from before […]

Creating a Neutral Nursery

As you might’ve seen on stories, I plan on decorating a gender-neutral nursery for baby #3.  And I finally bought my first item for this baby–wallpaper!  It’s actually the only thing I’ve bought at all.  I’m almost 30 weeks and the ol’ nesting phenomena hasn’t kicked in yet; perhaps it won’t?  I already have quite […]

Finally! Our Master Bathroom Renovation

It’s here!  Behold: our long-awaited master bathroom renovation reveal.  Join me for a good before and after along with what we learned during the process.  We have never done home renovations so this has been quite the journey for us…and I have to say–I can see how people say it’s addicting. What did we do? […]
