One of the next projects on my home remodel bucket list is my bathroom. I already did a pretty extensive remodel before I moved into my house by refinishing the tile from yellow to white. (You can read about that project here!)
I also put a new floor down and painted the walls. But, I’ve never really loved my bathroom counter or vanity. The stone top is stained in a few places and has yellowed. The vanity is old and just not great. My goal for the project is to replace the vanity and the top to make the bathroom feel new and updated. Depending on how that project goes, I may choose to redo the floors as well, because they are a little plain jane.
I recently shared my mini makeover in my blogger home office. I use this room to store a lot of my closet, especially my shoe collection. I used to dream of being able to afford designer shoes long before I ever went to fashion design school, and to me, they represent how hard I have worked in my career!
When I first moved into my house, I found a bookcase on the side of the road that I loaded into my car and used to store my shoes and purses. As I’ve finally grown up a little bit and can actually afford furniture, I wanted to get the monstrosity out of the room and replace it with something a little nicer.
Looking back on my kitchen remodel, there are some pieces of the project that surprised me with how well they turned out. We did majority of the work ourselves, and with little experience in some of the projects, it’s always a little scary whether they will turn out or not!
In fact, the only part of the kitchen that I am not totally happy with is the seam in the counter top (shout out to Home Depot installers). They didn’t fully fill in the seam crack and im STILL fighting with them to fix it.
Other than that, here are some of my favorite details of the project!
Over the last few years of owning my home, I have crafted my home from being a broke 23 year old trying to decorate with a budget of $0, to finally being able to invest more into intentional decor pieces. I’m still all about that budget life, but it’s enjoyable to be able buy things instead of just piecing together hand-me-downs.
I’ve finally been able to create my own personal style in my home, and wanted to share my top tips for creating a stylish space.
I started this post with the intention of a Marie Kondo-inspired organization overhaul, but I realized that my house is already pretty organized (SORRY!). My organization kick did inspire me to clean up my home office, get rid of some clutter, and give it a refreshed look.
One of the biggest and longest projects I’ve done in my house has been my kitchen remodel. I touched almost every part of the kitchen– from the walls, to the cupboards, counters, and the floor.
The goal of the project was to embrace the midcentury style of the kitchen, but refresh it in a modern way. I wanted to keep the original birch cupboards as-is and design the room around them. I also wanted to brighten up the space to give it a more open and airy look. Finally, I wanted to add my own personal touch on it, to make it feel like it fits my home, and isn’t just a copy paste from something on pinterest.
