We’ve remodeled many rooms in our lovely home, but there was one we had left untouched since we moved in. Due, in part, to the massive undertaking it would be, we had left our plain ol’ kitchen as it was. But, after watching many hours of HGTV during a recent stay in a hotel, we […]
Both our front yard (what little there is of it) and back yard had been looking a little rough, so when some cooler summer weather came our way Heather & I decided to get some hard work done. We tackled the rest of the front yard (previously having done the patch around the pear tree), […]
This weekend we decided to spend as much time indoors as possible to avoid the heat (over 100 degrees!). We used our time to clean up and organize the closet, which was much needed. We were so eager to start the project we forgot to take an accurate “before” picture, but believe me when I […]
We’ve been wanting to find the perfect patio table for a while now. Granted, when we really wanted to find one, it wasn’t 100 degrees outside. But, nonetheless. We came across a cute white set with a mid-century feel to it at an estate sale a month or so ago. Now, if we had a […]
My beautiful wife has a vast collection of jewelry, like any other lady, but I think she displays it all quite well. With collectible milk glass, and lots of pearls, the collection adds an upscale charm to the bathroom. And the best part is, she’s acquired almost all the jewelry from estate sales or it’s […]
It’s hard to believe that it’s already been a year since we first received the keys to our home! It’s great to look back on this blog and see all the changes we’ve made. Here’s to another year with hopefully just as many new changes & adventures!
We’ve been in our home almost a year, and we’re still adding new treasures to fill different spaces. We recently found a piece of art that fits well over our bed, and we picked up a very unique mid-century miniature organ at an auction.
We have now successfully replaced the ceiling lights in each of the three rooms in the house. Our latest find was a hobnail milk glass light we picked at an estate sale for $12. It fits well in the craft room/office. I also completed another small project I had somewhat started a long time ago. […]
Some of you may remember one of the very first projects we completed: painting the craft/office room a nice blue after removing the very floral wallpaper. It looked a bit like this… Well, after that, Heather and I really let the craft room go. It became a catch-all for just about everything. It wasn’t very […]
We finished decorating our home! Well, we seem to be adding new things every day actually, but it’s pretty much done. We’re excited to be spending our first Christmas as a married couple in our new home for the first time. Heather made a beautiful wreath for our front door, and I hung up lights […]
