Completed Turquoise And Beige Nursery

  Happy Saturday night, y’all!  (In case you were wondering, why, yes– I am sitting at home on a Saturday night and David and I are about to have a Scrubs marathon while Evie sleeps and we eat frozen dinner and drink some local red wine.  This is actually heaven to me these days.)  I...
Inspirational Farmhouse

Inspirational Farmhouse

I know it’s been a while since I did my weekly inspirational blog posts on Thursdays but no better time than the present to start them again! This week I thought I’d share an article from Architectural Digest.  It can be found here.   This 1816 farmhouse is apparently in the Shenandoah Valley and owned...
Family Dresser

Family Dresser

  Most of the furniture in Evie’s nursery is new (well, new to our family… aka from Craigslist!) but there’s one piece that has a lot of meaning to me and I hope it will mean something to Evie one day.This dresser belonged to my mom.  She bought it at an auction in Richmond when...
No Walls Left Standing

No Walls Left Standing

Behold, the lack of any walls (or roof for that matter) on our former sun room, soon-to-be back porch! The room– or porch– seems muuuuuch bigger to me, which makes sense now that it’s not restricted by walls anymore. At first we were going to use 4x4s (shown) as the columns but they looked/ felt...
Demolition of the Sun Room

Demolition of the Sun Room

  Hello! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  Evie gave us a lot to be grateful for last night by sleeping 9 hours… she’s such a champ.  😉 Anyway, thought I’d share with you some pictures from a little while back of our sun room project!  If a picture speaks a thousand words, I’ll...
Tie-Backs in the Nursery

Tie-Backs in the Nursery

  The last piece of the nursery puzzle is complete: the white eyelet curtain tie-backs! I ordered beige bows (to match the carpet and trim on the window shades) from Etsy for $16 each.  I decided to keep the closet doors on behind the curtains– a friend gave me a tip that once Evie is a...
A Nursery Monogram for the Baby!

A Nursery Monogram for the Baby!

We just about have Evie’s precious nursery done! A few weeks after she was born we ordered a 24 inch wood wall monogram from this Etsy shop for $65.  I’m a sucker for monograms, let me tell you.  I guess it’s a Southern thing but I’ve always loved mine.  (Side note: as you’ll see below, our last...
Adding French Doors

Adding French Doors

Step 1 for turning the sun room into a back porch was to separate the kitchen from the sun room.  Remember here when we started taking apart the cutesy arch?  We kept taking it apart and discovered it was perfectly cut for French doors! We decided to add glass paneled French doors to let lots of...
Bye Bye, Mobility!

Bye Bye, Mobility!

  I think the saying goes “God won’t give you any more than you can carry.”   Well He must have a high opinion of our family, that’s for sure!   After my 6 week postpartum check-up, the ob/gyn cleared me for any kind of exercise and said everything looked great.  I started going on long walks...
8 Tips for Painting Your Home

8 Tips for Painting Your Home

Hi all!  Our friends over at Modernize.com (if you haven’t been to their site, worth checking out!) helped me out by writing a very good post about painting.  This is by Jane Blanchard for Modernize!!  Thanks so much Jane. Slapping on a brand new color to the exterior or interior of the home is a...
Thinking About the Sun Room...

Thinking About the Sun Room…

    Now that we have no more kitchen floor, we decided to see what other damage we can do to our house.  Figured we’d start with the sun room.  It’s been not much other than a storage room/ project room/ dog room/ mud room to us since we moved in– mostly because it’s always...
Tearing Up the Kitchen Floor

Tearing Up the Kitchen Floor

  Confession: the work described in this blog post was actually done a few months ago (when I was pregnant, before Evie was born).   The tile floor in the kitchen had seen much, much better days.  The air conditioning holes in the floor (see below) were totally gross and the tile surrounding them was...
