Fall Dining Room Decor

My favorite design decision in my entire home is the chalkboard wall I painted in the dining room. I remember being so nervous to paint a wall this big, black! The positive impact it has on this space is far greater than any negatives a dark color like black could have created (I thought itContinue reading “Fall Dining Room Decor”

Working on Multiple Rooms

I’ve been a little scatter brained when it comes to what I’m working on at the moment. My entire upstairs needs work before we can actually use the space. The upstairs consists of 4 bedrooms (one in which I’ve turned into the master closet), and the second floor bathroom. Each room is in varying statesContinue reading “Working on Multiple Rooms”

Christmas Porch

I will do a full porch makeover post once I’ve stained the floor boards and I’ve painted the posts. That may still be a few weeks away due to both weather and available time. The holidays are a bit busier than ever before. Ezra’s first birthday is this Christmas Eve and I do have plansContinue reading “Christmas Porch”

100-Year-Old Vintage Porch Makeover-Before

This porch is the most beautiful and ugliest part of this house. It was a huge selling feature for me when I purchased the home. It has definitely seen some renovation over the years. As you can see from one of the original pictures the previous homeowner brought to me a few months back, theContinue reading “100-Year-Old Vintage Porch Makeover-Before”

Cascade – House Update

The week before last, Josh took vacation in order to make some good progress on his house. He was able to get drywall up in the master, kitchen, hall and hall bath. Josh also hung the cabinets in the kitchen so that we could really feel out the layout. I have to say, his kitchenContinue reading “Cascade – House Update”

Vintage Dresser Vanity

Most of the upstairs bathroom is now complete. There are only a few small paint items left and some decor choices to decide on. With so many fun features in this bathroom like the 1921 clawfoot tub and the huge walk in tile shower, it’s hard to narrow down my favorite thing about this space.Continue reading “Vintage Dresser Vanity”

Master Bathroom-Part 1

A few pictures showing the progress in the upstairs bathroom. It is an onsuite for the master bedroom as well as the bathroom for the other 3 bedrooms upstairs. I’ve been in hurry up mode to get this project completed for my re-appraisal. I’m nearing the end and thought I’d organize some of the pictureContinue reading “Master Bathroom-Part 1”

Staycation Vacation

I am notorious for taking vacations and staying home. For the past three years I’ve used every day of relaxing time to work on my house. I try to do so much myself to first save money, but second learn and gain experience. I enjoy trying new things and putting myself to the test ofContinue reading “Staycation Vacation”

Living Room

I’ve finished my first room and it feels great to have one room I can go and sit in without looking at all the things that still need to be done. It’s my new sanctuary for relaxation at the end of a long day. This room is completely new. New insulation, electrical, drywall, trim, andContinue reading “Living Room”

Little Improvements

I haven’t posted anything in awhile because not one room is complete. I moved in December 18th and while work is slowly happening around the first floor, no major projects have happened. Oh except more plumbing! I had to have my old sewer line replaced (it looked like Swiss cheese). So since December, trim workContinue reading “Little Improvements”
