• 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...

    Fall Living Room

    by  • November 24, 2012

    I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We were fortunate to be able to spend the holiday with our families & are still soaking it in. I thought I’d better squeeze in this little update about our fall living room before the season has totally passed. I got the urge to switch up...

    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...

    Vintage Recipe Box & Matching Cards

    by  • October 17, 2012

    Lots of exciting things are happening over here!…hence the lack of time for blog posts. We took a little break on our bathroom reno (which is almost done!!) to start on the kitchen! So we are living the dorm life these days with our table in the bedroom, our fridge in the living room,...

    Tiling Our Shower

    by  • September 20, 2012

    I don’t think I need to explain why we replaced our shower tile – I’ll just let these “before” pictures do the talking – We happily ripped those gross old tiles right off the wall. Ready to see the horror movie set that we unveiled? Yikes. First of all, there was evidence of multiple...

    Charcoal Gray Hallway

    by  • September 12, 2012

    Our hallway needed makeover, on a dime. Almost literally. Using lots of supplies I had on hand, this little face lift came in under $4! The walls got a fresh coat of dark charcoal gray paired with crisp white trim. The gray is leftover paint from our kitchen – which I’m actually completely repainting...
