Progress in My Garage Entryway: Paint and a Striped Wall

DIY chalkboard wall calendar | 11 Magnolia Lane

I wrote a few weeks ago about the big plans I have for the area between our kitchen and our garage; it's a great space and has such potential.  You can see my step by step to-do list {here}. The space that I'm working on looks like this: Our kids have been back in school for a month now … [Read more...]

Plans for An Organized Entryway

Garage entryway plans | 11 Magnolia Lane

  So, the kids are back in school--this is day 3 and so far, so good with the new school--and I'm turning my thoughts to the long list of projects I want to accomplish around the new house.  I've actually already repainted our kitchen, since I think I mentioned that I wasn't loving the color … [Read more...]

I am proud to be a HomeRight Brand Ambassador.  While I am given products to try and am compensated for my time, all of my opinions are 100% my own. I'm back to show you my daughter's new room, now that it's (mostly) finished and decorated, and tell you how painting it was a snap--cathedral … [Read more...]

Our New Kitchen

White French country kitchen | 11 Magnolia Lane

Last week I showed you the open shelving we installed in the bar area of the kitchen (you can see it on the right below): And here's a better shot: I had to do very little to this kitchen; it was already pretty fabulous.  The cabinets are all custom and a creamy white with brown … [Read more...]

As you guys know, things have been moving slower than I would like in our new home because of all the time it's taking to deal with the claim from our move damage.  The good news is that our dining room table has been repaired, and they are hopefully picking up the piano to take it in for repairs in … [Read more...]

Thanks to all of you for your sympathetic comments about our moving nightmare--I appreciate every one of them!  And I'm so sorry to hear that so many of you have had horrible moving experiences, too.  It just doesn't seem right, does it? We're spending the the July 4th weekend--you guessed … [Read more...]

Before and Afters From Our Move

What's left of my Lilly Pulitzer for Target bar tray.  Sadness.

Well, you'd think after twenty years of marriage to a guy in the military I'd have this moving thing under control--but I'm afraid our last move brought me to tears (and my knees!). Worst. Move. Ever. I texted that to Amy last week as we were digging out from underneath all the damage and … [Read more...]

Painting My Daughter’s New Room

AB-room-after-closets

As I mentioned in this post, I took a quick trip up to North Carolina right after Memorial Day to paint a few rooms and have my "orientation" to our new house and all of its systems--things like how the water filter works, where all the cold air returns are located, and troubleshooting the … [Read more...]

How We Found Our New House

Market your family by creating a brochure for potential landlords | 11 Magnolia Lane

I've been promising to tell you all the story of how we found our next house in Southern Pines, because we hardly ever do things in the "usual" way around here! First, we decided to rent this time around.  We still own an income property (our Nashville house), and we're not sure that we'll be in … [Read more...]
