The House- Bathrooms


Sorry I missed posting this last week, time got away from me. ¬†We had a shower for a sweet friend Saturday, so I was busy working on getting that done. When we moved into the house we knew we were going to have to redo the 3/4 bath, but the guest bath (though ugly), was in good condition and didn’t need much work. Here is what we did in the guest bath: Yup, blue walls, an ugly light fixture, ugly shower curtain and old sink fixtures. To update the room (without doing a complete makeover- yes I know that new […]

Kid Room #2- Pottery Barn Kids Inspired Nursery Knock Off


Mason’s room. ¬†When I started looking for bedding for Mason I looked for a room with a classic, clean feel. ¬†I didn’t want anything super babyish because we needed his room to serve as a guest room also.

The House: Kid Room #1

So…Asa’s room. ¬†Well, he originally started in what is currently the nursery/guest room, and when we had Mason we moved him to what was the guest room. ¬†My inspiration (or blatant rip off) came from Thrifty Decor Chick¬†(for some reason I can’t get a direct […]

The House: Office and Kitchen


Happy Monday! It has been a long week. We have had a fair amount of showings for the house. Can I just say, it’s exhausting getting the house ready before every showing! Making sure everything is “just so” with two little boys in the house can be trying. ¬†But I’m praising Jesus that people are coming through! So I promised more before and after pictures. ¬†Well, here they are! This is the office space before (when we bought the house-the one on the left) and during is on the right. ¬†We used that table for games and small dinners for […]
