I recently added these darling bunting banners to my Etsy shop, 
made from Caitlin Wilson Fabrics

They're perfect for kid rooms,

nurseries and play rooms,

 for mantles,

and they are also perfect for party decor 
or as photo props.

You can also get a custom made bunting banner with your choice
of up to three Caitlin Wilson fabrics

These fabrics are beautiful and heavier weight home decor fabric
which will hold up for years of use!

Valentine's Day Round Up

I LOVE Valentines Day,
but I'm lacking in the decor department for this lovely holiday.  
And since Valentines Day is only one week away
I decided to do a little round up of some of my favorite festive finds
for the home, but I kept the color palette a little more neutral 
since I'm not a huge fan of red for my decor.

Here are the links to all of the fabulous items above!

Nautical Inspired Nursery

I just finished this nautical inspired design board and just
love the way it turned out.  
The ombre quilt and the mint anchor pillow were my
starting points for this room, and everything else just fell into place!

I wanted the space to be bright, white, and modern
with touches of nautical elements throughout.
This nursery can also be easily transitioned to a big kid 
room by simply switching out the crib for a bed.

I currently have two online design spots open for February,
 so email me if you are interested!

Shared Nursery Design Board

My best friend is due with baby number two this month so I 
finally got my act together and put together this design board for her.
She plans on keeping the baby in her room for the first few months
so it gives her some time to get the nursery put together.

Baby boy will be sharing a room with his big sis so the goal was to
 make the room work for both of them.  I think the pink and the navy
color scheme will do just that!

We painted this amazing dresser for her a few years ago when she was due 
with her first so we wanted to make sure to incorporate it in the new design.

Isn't it beautiful?!

I can't wait to meet her sweet new boy and to see this room put together!

Kitchen Design Board

The kitchen cabinet painting is taking FOREVER.
It's taking 5 coats of paint (2 primer, 3 paint) to get really good coverage
and I'm only doing one section of cabinets at a time so my kitchen
isn't a complete disaster.  I'm hoping to be done this weekend
so it's ready for our Thanksgiving guests next week!

Here is the design board I put together for the space, 
I can't wait to see it all come together.

I was hoping to complete the renovation within a $1,000 budget but 
we ended up hiring out the electrical and drywall work so it was a little 
more than planned, I'm still hoping to come in close to though!

Kitchen Progress

  We knew when we bought our home that the kitchen was in need of an update.
The house was built in 2000, and the kitchen hadn't been updated since. 
Luckily, the counters are nice white Corian and the cabinets are in
great condition, but the ivy wallpaper had to go along with the 
strange cut-outs into the living area. 

As you can see, ugly wallpaper and strange cut-outs

We got to work on the demo to take this wall down and make a breakfast bar.

We also spent HOURS removing the 1990's wallpaper

Here is the wall down, waiting for the electrician to come move wires

 We had to install a column to hide those wires that were once in the wall,
I think it will frame out the breakfast bar nicely once the countertop is installed

And here is the view looking in to the kitchen, where the breakfast bar will be.

This is the before of the kitchen

And here is the after.
Wallpaper is gone, bead board is painted, and kitchen is updated!

I am currently painting the rest of the cabinets the same color 
as the bead board (Cloud Nine by Benjamin Moore) 
and we will then tile the backsplash, add cabinet hardware, 
add the breakfast bar, and enjoy our updated kitchen!
