One of my latest house projects was refinishing the vanity in my bathroom. When I first moved into my house, I gave it a light sanding and another coat of varnish to freshen it up, but I’ve never completely loved … Continue reading
Next on my list of remodel goals is my kitchen. This has been pretty far back on the list due to it being so expensive! My thought on this has been to save up for what I really want so … Continue reading
We all want our homes to feel like a place to recharge and relax, but sometimes creating that kind of space takes a little more than budget allows. That doesn’t mean there aren’t little things you can do to help … Continue reading
One of the hardest parts of maintaining an older home is keeping up with parts of the home that are going to naturally age. All of the wood trim in my home is original to the house, but over the … Continue reading
As I mentioned before, the next room on my great popcorn ceiling texture removal project is the guest bedroom. Since removing the popcorn involves painting the ceiling and touching up the walls, I’ve decided to also update the entire room.

This weekend I finally pulled the trigger and went full-on fall decorating. Between chilly running weather, football, and my caramel apple spice drinks from Starbucks, it’s my favorite season. I’m loving copper tones this year, mixed with cozy mohairs and preppy plaids. I picked up a beautiful bouquet of sunflowers mixed with and purple flowers that make the prettiest color pallete!

In part one, I shared how I installed vintage hardwood floors in my hallway. For those of you not keeping up, I salvaged hardwood flooring from a tear down house to match with the existing flooring in my house.

Taking on the living room was a much bigger process. After weeks of measuring, squaring, and then ripping up carpet and the plywood sub floor, we put down new tar paper, marked out the studs to nail into, and started flooring.
