Master Bedroom Makeover

I am thrilled to be sharing our new and improved master bedroom!  It was a labor of love and my husband and I are pretty proud of how it turned out.  It can be a challenge when it comes to decorating for both of our tastes.  I lean more toward the bright, paint all the things white, style and my husband likes a darker, more rustic aesthetic.   One thing we DO agree on though, is the farmhouse style.  So we had to strike a balance between farmhouse chic and rustic country.  Here’s how it turned out…Continue reading

Our White + Bright Fireplace Makeover

In DIY, House Tour

Along the same lines as the emergency binder post, I’ve accomplished another item off my own personal summer bucket list!  This one was with the help of my awesome hubby and Youtube.  I love DIY and doing different crafts but I’ve never done one on a larger scale.  And while this project is mainly just a paint job, I think it definitely qualifies as a large scale DIY.

Hubby took to Youtube to find what we would need and how much of a process it would be.  He found THIS ONE and we got to work.  As you can see, I was super helpful from the start.

Hubby did the main rolling and I came in with the grout work.  That took, what felt like, FOREVER.  Our mortar is so far back in some places that it took more than a few strokes to cover.  Luckily, we only needed to prime the grout for it to look good.  Hubby rolled on the additional paint layer to finish it off.

We are so thrilled with how it turned out and how bright it has made the entire room.  We don’t have a ton of light that comes into our house.  When the fireplace was traditional brick, it would stay a little dim even with all the blinds up.  Now, it bounces right off of the pretty white paint and lights up the main level.  We were also fortunate to already have the white mantel piece (removed in the before pic) so that saved us a ton of time.

I’m so thrilled to finally be sharing another finisher space in my house!  I feel like all I ever do is plan and Pinterest board my ideas to death and they never actually come to be.  But I’m changing that with project sheets (I’ll share about that soon!) and it’s working!  This particular level of our house used to be completely different and fairly haphazard but with a complete (unexpected) basement renovation, it was the perfect opportunity to change some things around.  Continue reading
