DIY-Napkin Holders

For Thanksgiving this year I decided to have family over. I contemplated using paper or glass plates and prepared for both decisions. At the last minute, hours before guests arrived, I cleaned off my glass plates and set them on the table. Unfortunately, I did not have cloth napkins or napkin holders. I had to think outside the box.

Transform your Quaint Master, Farmhouse Style

I have been focusing so much time on my living room and kitchen that the bedroom felt a little lackluster. I knew my vision, but it was a slow process.

The bedroom was a blue color when we first purchased the house and it hurt my heart to see such a blue in our room that was yearning to be gray and antiqued white.

Relax in Farmhouse Living

DeAnna and I had spent the previous day painting the kitchen from pale yellow to Colonnade Gray. That post is here.

I was so excited how the kitchen had turned out that I raced home from a hectic day of teaching 7 year olds to paint the living room. Once I for home we got down to work. Well, DeAnna cooked some delicious chicken while I painted; which I was happy with because she is an amazing cook.

DIY-Mud Room Cabinetry

We purchased our farmhouse it had these oak cabinets throughout the house that were simply overlooked because we were in love it.

As we walked into this home we walked in through the front door. Smart tactic by the real estate agent because we were able to see the entire first floor to see how beautiful it was. The laundry room is a very tight space that leads to the garage and back deck.

The problem?

We don’t use the front door as our primary entry. Once the car is parked I open the garage door and walk through this mud room. After being the house a few months we knew the cabinets had to be changed out, but who has that kind of money? Our income was not enough to replace these cabinets, but to restore them.

Lighten Up Your Master Bath

Similar to the laundry room post my husband and I noticed that our master bath was small, but functional. We purchased the house and the walls were originally blue. Click here for the paint post! So after painting the walls a dark gray we noticed the cabinets stuck out like a sore thumb. Besides the dark paint color making the room feel claustrophobic, the cabinets didn’t help either.

Farm to Table Kitchen

When I check my Pinterest I am overwhelmed with all of the ideas I could apply to my home. We purchased our beautiful farmhouse in October of 2015 and have been remodeling it to fit our styles. My husband and I love the farmhouse/country style. Plain, neutrals, white, antique are something I dream my house to one day have at every turn.

When we purchased our home it is the exact style layout we dreamed to build on a piece of land. We killed two bird with one stone on this deal because we found it on 3.5 acres. Perfect.

When you purchase a home you are so excited that you think everything is perfect until you settle in and determine your style.
