  This post is sponsored by HomeRight.  All opinions are my own. One of the things that's been on my to-do list at the MCC House for at least a year is painting the kitchen.  The reason that it's been on the list for so long is that the paint in the kitchen really isn't that bad, so other … [Read more...]

  I have a fall tablescape to share today. I am not sure it's perfectly normal to design a whole table around these copper wine glasses, but in this situation, that is exactly what I did. I created a simple but elegant fall tablescape that would be perfect for Thanksgiving or fall … [Read more...]

The Home Depot provided this table to me at no cost, my opinions about it are as always my own.   I am back today with another space in our new home.  Now that the kids are back in school I have not only had a chance to photograph some of our new spaces but also found the time to write … [Read more...]

  Hi everyone, we're back from vacation and gearing up for the start of school in about 10 days {insert sad face!}, I am definitely not ready to see summer end this year. Since we've been home we've been hard at work getting more settled in our new house. With all the summer … [Read more...]

If you visited my home tour a few weeks ago (see it here), then you saw a few shots of my kitchen.  It's definitely compact, which makes it hard to photograph, but it's been nicely updated with new cabinets and granite countertops. Yes, I have to store a bunch of my cooking implements … [Read more...]

This post is sponsored by HomeRight, my opinion of their fantastic and useful DIY tools is my own.     The most common questions I got in my last house was about the kitchen cabinets. Did I paint them? (Yes!) Was it hard? (No!) Am I glad I did it? (Heck yes!) Will I paint (the … [Read more...]

That almost sounds like a book title, but there's no literary symbolism here--I'm just going to show you the kitchens Amy and I have designed and lived in at our various (many!) houses.  Seeing this builder image of her soon-to-be new house's kitchen got me thinking that we really have cooked in a … [Read more...]

Today I thought I'd share a few of the "outtake" photos of the kitchen from my home tour last week, so you can get a better sense of the space.  It's pretty small; we have about a fourth of the cabinets that we had in our old kitchen, but I haven't missed any of our cooking gear yet. It's summer, … [Read more...]

Hi everyone, I hope you are having a relaxing Sunday! I am popping in really quickly today to show you a part of my house that I haven't really posted pictures of before--the other side of my kitchen.   The reason I haven't shared these pictures previously is that while we did a full … [Read more...]

 I've just gotten all of my Christmas decorations packed away.  Isn't it funny how it feels SO good to do that?  I love pulling them out and decorating for Christmas every year, but then I also love putting them away and going back to a less-is-more look. The kitchen has been stripped of all its … [Read more...]

This post (and the pig print) are courtesy of Photos.com; all opinions are mine. All of my Christmas decorations have been packed away, and suddenly the house felt empty, especially the open shelving I added above the bar area in our kitchen.  Clearly, they were pretty "done up" for the … [Read more...]
