Guest Bathroom Update

Happy Mother’s Day to all you mothers out there!!!!!  I’m so excited to join your club soon.  🙂 Things have really been happening here in the past few days.  The faucet for the vessel sink finally arrived!  The sink is installed in the bathroom (along with the toilet), and we hung the mirror and installed...
Planting New Dawn Roses

Planting New Dawn Roses

On par with feeling the baby’s first kicks a few weeks ago, our wedding day was probably the happiest day of my life.  It was perfect– our closest friends and family together with us as we said our vows under a beautiful arch made by my cousin May. Is my cousin talented or what?!  I...
Taking Apart the Cutesy Doorway Arch

Taking Apart the Cutesy Doorway Arch

  So the doorway to the sunroom from the kitchen has always kind of bothered me… it never seemed to fit in for an 1850 farmhouse. (Sorry these pictures were taken at night– not the best I know!) Out of curiosity more than anything else, David started prying the wood boards off to see what...
Prepping Our Crib!

Prepping Our Crib!

A very exciting package arrived in the mail recently!!   That’s right– our first purchase for the baby– the CRIB!!!– is here! I love the look of four poster cribs but they’re usually so expensive so we settled on this one made by Delta:   It was only $171 but it wasn’t exactly what we were...
Turning Antique Dry Sink Basin Into A Sink

Turning Antique Dry Sink Basin Into A Sink

A few weekends ago, David and I decided to take some time to peruse an antique shop while we were driving home from somewhere (I don’t exactly remember where we were to be honest).  We happened upon the most amazing find– an antique dry sink basin for only $80! We somehow got it home in...
White Hexagon Tile Floor

White Hexagon Tile Floor

Hello!  Sorry for the long pause between blog posts– David and I went to Argentina for a week to celebrate his 30th birthday (ahhh!!) and one last big trip before our baby comes!  Now we’re back, and lots has happened while we’ve been gone.   First of all, the floor has been installed in the...
Starting Our Legacy

Starting Our Legacy

Every Thursday I share something on my blog that inspires me, and this Thursday is definitely the happiest post I have ever written or will probably ever write:   That’s right folks, we’re expecting our first baby!!!!!!!!!!   If you’ve seen our House Hunters episode, you know that a big part of our decision to...
Tub Backsplash Tile: Check.

Tub Backsplash Tile: Check.

    Here’s a recap of what’s been happening in the bathroom recently! Below you can see the walls are up and the tub is too–   Let the tiling commence!     After a few days, the contractor’s crew had the tiles all affixed to the wall with the little spacers. Looking good at...
Home Spring Home

Home Spring Home

For this Thursday’s post about something that inspires me, I’ll cut right to the chase: the weather!  It’s finally springtime here in Charlottesville and I LOVE it!  We moved to Charlottesville in May of last year (and to our house in August) so I have no idea what will surface and bloom at home… and...
We're halfway there!

We’re halfway there!

I just realized I never gave a status update on the kitchen renovations.  (Remember, this is what it looked like when we moved in!)  We’re still not done but we’ve been living in a “halfway point” for a few months now.  Here’s how it looks so far!     Still to do: — Replace the...
Backsplash for Tub Area

Backsplash for Tub Area

I spent way too many hours over the past few weeks looking at Houzz, Pinterest, Google Images, and so on for ideas on how to design the tile surrounding the tub/ shower area.  I stopped at numerous home places in Charlottesville and most of the time was just shocked by the expense of the tiles...
Bathroom Tub

Bathroom Tub

I scoured the internet for a while before finding this tub from Lowe’s for less than $300– brand new, narrow (only 29″ wide as opposed to the usual 30″ or 32″), and a drain on the right hand side.  The drain could have just as easily been on the left but I wanted it on...
