Setting the Mood

Yes, ANOTHER house project post.  We have been super busy with getting things looking nice around these parts.  We are far from being close to being anything, but we are making progress.

What a Treasure (Chest)

I told you all a few weeks ago we bought brand new furniture for the bedroom and the living room.  New house, new furniture.  The first year of living in a home will seriously make you so poor.

Queen Anne Gets a Facelift

A furniture flip for your fine Saturday afternoon. Right now, we have a hodge podge of chairs in our dining room.  Two I picked from the trash, two I bought from IKEA (one has since sold), and two are from my parents basement.  All are black and all are hideous.

Just Keep Moving

Sometimes just hitting the reset button on life is what we all need.  We had a fun weekend away in North Carolina for a ski trip.  We both tried snowboarding for the first time and decided we hated it.  Sorry to my snowboard lovers out there, but skiing is my jam.  I had such a … Continue reading »

Progress Report: In the Bedroom

Heeyy, it is not that sort of post!  At the moment, we are working on getting our bedroom to look more grown up than what it was when we moved in.  I didn’t really take any before shots of the room (bad blogger), but the room was the same yellow as the rest of the … Continue reading »

Closet Case

We are officially working on getting our bedroom to look somewhat like a person lives in there and one of my biggest complaints about the room is the closet.  Our house is a little over 1,400 square feet, so our bedroom does not have a grand master closet you see in these huge houses, just … Continue reading »
