HOME TOUR: My House in Progress

I recently added a House Tour section to my website under the My Projects tab in the navigation bar above, but thought I’d share it with you today in case you’ve missed it!

Here’s a quick peek into some of the rooms we’ve updated thus far…

New patio furniture, landscaping and potted plants make a huge difference.

The red wall is gone and we’re on to a lighter and brighter room!

Our one extra bedroom in the house had a major overhaul. We decided to put the small space to good use and make it something that we can all enjoy!

Same furniture but it feels like a whole new room!

Goodbye hot pink princess mess, hello yummy little girl’s room. 


I have a couple of BIG projects underway, including some new updates to my Dining Room that we’ll hopefully knock out this weekend. Then it’s on to the Great Room (which is already in progress) and our Kitchen (see my plan for that room here).

Oh, and I’ll have my mom’s Craft Room/Guest Room coming down the pike soon… hopefully! It’s definitely a lot harder when your project location is 45 minutes away… urgh!

Stay tuned for more! 

Just a Party with My Peeps {#11}

Well, it’s that time of the week again!
Here are some featured projects that I just had to share…

First up is Linen and Thread’s entryway. While this home is absolutely stunning, she talks about setting a mood when someone enters your home. LOVE that!! And this grandma has once fabulous sense of style. Make sure you check out her home tour!

How about a cool activity for the kids? Homespun with Love made some Toddler Pudding Finger Paint. This is such a great activity for summer! Let the kiddos go crazy then spray them down with a hose :) Definitely going to try this one!

Looking for a new recipe? Check out these Spinach Stuffed Mushrooms from The Single Nester. She made a couple of changes to a recipe she found and the end result looks delicious!!

Next up is a project that’s after my own heart! DIY Rustic Pallet Bookshelves from It’s Our Pinteresting Life. LOVE THIS. And I need to make these pronto! I love the texture and warmth it adds. Great idea Heidi!!

I simply adore this writing desk makeover from The Old Block House. The color choice and distressing is amazing, and the scrapbook paper lined drawers are TO DIE FOR!!

Oh, and I had to throw in this map dresser makeover from Trash to Treasure. Haydee got inspired from a trip to Paris and I just LOVE the end result!
