Summer She Shed Update
I think the best part about having the new little she shed space is getting to style it! Since I had my baby in the spring, I didn’t really get a chance to change up the decor for spring but summer is looking mighty fine in the shed. I found these beautiful vintage bird prints at an estate sale over the weekend and I have patiently been waiting for a way to use the mismatched wooden frames. The two are really a match made in heaven! I added some fresh herb pots and rearranged my nature and garden books and the whole space feels fresh and ready for the sunshine.
Kitchen Remodel Reveal
The changes I made were simple ones – paint the cabinets and paint the countertops. I will do follow up posts with tips and tricks for each of those fun projects but for now, here is the reveal! In 2 weeks I took my worn out wood cabinets to a beautiful white and my green laminate countertops to a white diamond granite look-alike.
Baby Boy Nursery Reveal
Putting together a nursery was both super exciting and really challenging! It was exciting to picture each little corner and how the room would grow and change with our little boy. Overall, finding the perfect pieces for the space was really challenging because I tend to like gender neutral decor (and to me that doesn’t mean just finding something grey!), I hate themes (like why does every brand of nursery decor have to carry woodland animals, owls or plaid for boys rooms?) and most of all I really want something that will grow with our child and not require an update every few years.
Bathroom Remodel Before and Afters
Wow, what a fun whirlwind project this bathroom has been! This space was a so much fun because there were so many mini projects packed into this little area. I definitely learned some new skills and felt stretched during the process of making this happen. As with most DIY projects, I finished feeling confident and capable and just can’t wait for next one!
DIY Painted and Stenciled Floors in the Guest Bathroom
I have been drooling over stenciled floors for a while and was so excited to finally find inspiration to use them in my house! A painted and stenciled floor can add so much personality to a space. You can choose a pattern that perfectly fits whatever decor vibe that you may want to achieve.
Shiplap Accent Wall in the Guest Bathroom
I think a shiplap accent wall is one of the easiest ways to infuse some farmhouse flair to a room on a budget!
Chalk Painted Bathroom Cabinets
Chalk paint became a quick favorite of mine after refinishing a few furniture pieces. I love the creamy looking matte finish and the fact that the prep is so easy. Chalk paint requires no sanding, no special surface prep and will pretty much cover any material you throw at it! The paint is very forgiving and dries super fast. I figured with all of these great qualities, how could it not be great for cabinets?
DIY Farmhouse Open Shelving in the Guest Bathroom
Ever since we installed open shelving in the She Shed (see that post here), I have been hooked! I love the look and it’s basically like adding a decor feature your walls because you get to decorate them any way you want.
DIY Guest Bathroom Hardware and Fixture Updates
Who else gets super annoyed when shopping for black lighting and sink fixtures because the black versions are way more expensive than the other color options? Me me me! I decided to avoid the frustration of that situation by painting my fixtures! The big changes were the faucet update and the lighting fixture update.
