Trend Roundup: Light Wash Wood

I’ve always loved the natural look of woodwork in a home and I’m so glad the trend of painting everything white is starting to come to an end. Natural wood can last for hundreds of years and can be refinished again and again to look like new. As I’ve done projects in my house, I’ve tried to stick to the original wood character as much as possible, which has meant a lot of restoration projects.

 

I’m loving the trend of light to medium wood that is finished to show the beauty of natural grain. It can create a great focal spot for any room. See some of my favorite inspo below!

Kitchen Remodel Update

I’ve made a lot of progress the past few weeks on my kitchen remodel plan. I’ve gotten estimates from a few contractors and made a decision on where I will purchase my counters and who will install them. What was most important to me was to find someone who would let me do the parts of the work that I can (removing the old counters, installing the new sink), which freed up money to spend on materials. Some people were not willing to work that way, but there’s no way I’m paying someone $200 to put a sink in!
