Creative Kitchen Organization and Design

This is a post that I can't take any credit for, since my kitchen was in great shape when we moved in {see more photos here}. However, I have cooked in nine different kitchens in the years since I've been married, and along the way I've learned what works and what most definitely does not. … [Read more...]

Reading Nook in the Master Bedroom

New Paint in Our Kitchen

Fall Living Room and Dining Room

I've kept my fall decorating minimal this year; we've been so busy that I haven't done as much as I usually do.  I'm going to do more, especially since we're hosting Thanksgiving, but I've decided just to do it at my own pace and not stress about what I "should" be doing.

The space we started with was an empty … [Read more...]

This is the next installment of the progress I've made in our garage entryway.  Phew--it's getting there, but all the things slow me down.  At least I'll beat my Christmas goal that I set in a moment of pessimism.  Oh, and am I the only one whose entire house goes to pot while working on a project? … [Read more...]

{Amy’s} Fall Home Tour

  Apparently it's the last day of summer so I thought I would share a few fall shots from around our house to kick off the season.  I have had several projects going on that required some "Fall" images so I pulled them together into a quick, seasonal decor post.  Our temperatures really … [Read more...]

How to DIY a Mudroom/Drop Zone (For Renters)

**While you're here, don't forget to enter our giveaway for a HomeRight FinishMax sprayer {here}** Obviously Amy and I have similar taste, and often we copy each other's best ideas.  Her closet-turned-mudroom is definitely one of those ideas that I had to steal, but since she owns her home and … [Read more...]
