Painting a Kohler Brockway Sink

Painting a Kohler Brockway Sink

Hi friends!  Sorry for the long pause between blog posts.  Baby #2 has yet to make his or her arrival, so David, Evie and I are filling the waiting period with as much family quality time as possible.  We’ve had a lot of fun exploring local attractions (like the Richmond Zoo, cute!) and restaurants (bring on...
Kids Bathroom Update :)

Kids Bathroom Update :)

We are in preparation for Baby #2 (although let’s be honest, poor second babies don’t get nearly the attention of first babies, even in utero) and I thought I’d take a few minutes to share how the kids’ bathroom is coming along! First of all– we have a cool new heated floor installed.  Just like...
Rock Wall in Front Yard

Rock Wall in Front Yard

We’ve done some more landscaping in the front yard! Just a reminder of what the front walkway started looking out like when we bought the house in 2013: We have done a LOT of ripping overgrown things out of the front yard (a lot of which has happened to be poison ivy/ poison oak/ poison...
Mural in the Bathroom!

Mural in the Bathroom!

I. found. the. cutest. wallpaper. It’s from Anthropologie and it’s crazy expensive ($548!) but it’s a lot cheaper than getting a real mural done.  And I absolutely love the garden design. Yes, it’s feminine, but it’s not uber-girly.  And since we didn’t find out Evie’s gender before she was born and decorated the nursery in...

Inspiration for the Kids’ Bathroom

So now that the Master Bathroom is done (YIPPEE!), I will focus our attention on the kids’ bathroom, which was carved out of the old laundry room area.  The contractors convinced us to do both bathrooms at once because it would be cheaper that way, except for the tub I ordered for the kids’ bathroom got...
Building a Chicken Run -- A Weekend Project??

Building a Chicken Run — A Weekend Project??

After having chickens for a few months, we started to see both the up- and the down-sides of the little creatures: Upside – they give you tasty eggs (eventually (not that I’m bitter or anything)) Downside – they poop indiscriminately on everything (not that I’m bitter or anything)   So put that nifty little lattice “gate”...
Finished Master Bathroom.

Finished Master Bathroom.

Allow me to finally share with you a long-overdue post: the FINISHED BATHROOM! We have had this wrapped up for a while now but I just never seem to find the time to write a blog post.  Sorry for the delay, but better late than never? To remind you what the old bathroom was like:...
Another New Addition...

Another New Addition…

Two years ago today, God gave us the gift of our sweet daughter and made us parents.  These past two years have made the rest of my life to this point feel insignificant… there’s just no way to describe how my heart has grown since becoming a momma. Happy Birthday, Evie Bee! As if having our now-2-year-old weren’t...
Riesling of the Pyrenees Variety

Riesling of the Pyrenees Variety

On Friday, we added a new family member to our home!!! Everyone please meet our beautiful new Great Pyrenees, “Riesling.”  She is about 3-4 years old and from a rescue in Georgia, and we’re in love with her already. She was surrendered to a shelter after hours so we know nothing about her first few...
The Chickens Pay Their Rent...Finally!

The Chickens Pay Their Rent…Finally!

When Lynne first said she wanted chickens three years ago, I chuckled and thought “aw, that’s cute…No way!” Fast forward just over two and a half years, and guess who was scraping chicken litter out from the coop?! My one bit of solace was that soon we would have delicious and healthy farm fresh eggs,...
Almost Done in the Hallway

Almost Done in the Hallway

I have some updates to the hallway to share!  It’s practically done except for the little finishing touches (hardware, paint, etc.) now! First of all, we installed lighting underneath the cupboards.  This way we can 1) fold laundry in the dark, and 2) have a sort of ‘night light’ effect if we need to light...
Tiling the Master Bathroom

Tiling the Master Bathroom

We have more progress to share with our renovations! David and I opted to install heated floors in the master bathroom because the room only has one air vent for the high velocity heating, and also… if we’re only going to have one bathroom for the rest of our lives, might as well make it...
