    I’m excited to show you my DIY upcycled vintage sheet curtains that I made for the kitchen for just $3.25 a panel! Like I mentioned in the kitchen design plan, I bought this queen-sized flat sheet from a thrift store for just $2. I loved the vintage floral pattern and thought it could make...

    2012 Christmas House Tour

    by  • December 24, 2012

    Welcome to our Christmas home! I already showed you the outside decorated for the holidays – And here are some snapshots from inside! I made a few simple boxwood wreaths to hang around the house using clippings from the yard. I default to scattering sprigs of evergreens and shiny ornaments. I don’t think I’ve...

    New Kitchen Pendant & Rugs

    by  • December 21, 2012

    I found this awesome pendant at a Habitat for Humanity ReStore for $2…TWO DOLLARS! I thought it was the perfect simple pendant to fit our vintage style design plan. With that purchase, we could finally address the dangling wire situation we had going on. I mentioned in this post that we decided to rebuild...

    2012 Christmas Tour – Exterior

    by  • December 13, 2012

    It’s time to start the Christmas house tour! Today I’ll just show you the outside, which probably isn’t deserving of its own post…but that’s all I have photos of at the moment! I didn’t hang any Christmas lights outside last year because we don’t have an outside outlet…much to my dismay. This year, I...

    Vintage-Red Kitchen Door

    by  • December 3, 2012

    Sorry for my blog absence lately, I have been so BUSY! Lots of house portrait orders have been coming in (a good problem to have!) and whatever spare time that was left was spent catching up on some house projects, which leaves little time for updates! I did allow myself a good part of...

    Reclaimed Wood Kitchen Floor

    by  • November 16, 2012

    The kitchen floor is done! Wohoo!! All that stands between us and functional appliances is installing the baseboards, which is happening tomorrow, so the end of toaster-oven-and-take-out living is in sight! Now I’ll take you through the journey of how we got there… Our kitchen floor was a good inch taller than the rest...

    Kitchen Progress

    by  • November 6, 2012

    I must say that our floor is looking preeeetty nice, but it still needs one more coat of sealer before I can take the “after” shots. And I’m going to be all dramatic and not let you see it until it’s finished 🙂 But I can give you a quick update on some other...

    Kitchen Design Plan

    by  • October 23, 2012

    I am crazy excited about our kitchen renovation inspired by my vintage recipe box – Translated into a design plan, it’s basically going to mean a neutral base with lots of vintage accents & pops of bright colors. There is much to be done to get us to that point, but I’m excited...
