Bloggers Challenge, home sweet home, project diy, room tour

We are at the finish line of this family room update. My goal in here was to update this room into a little bit more of a modern, simple and natural space all while making sure it functions well for our family. I think we did that. The first week I shared our plans for our tv wall as well as share how this space looked when we moved in…

  We finally put up shelves!! Sometimes it takes forever to do the simplest projects, doesn't it?! But first, do you remember our first coffee bar at the last house? If not, let me remind you! We've had our mug rack since our last house and it's still going strong. You guys ask about this item often and can find it here. Or how about the first time we shared…

If you've been around the blog, my IG page or been over to our house lately, you know I lean toward a very neutral (with lots of white) palette.

Baby Rae decided to walk at 11 months after we specifically asked her not to act old until she was 1. Totally kidding... but not really. We really weren't ready for her to not be our little crawling babe…

Bloggers Challenge, home sweet home

We are in the thick of this family room update as we are on week 4 of the One Room Challenge. I just got news that the whole challenge will be extending this 6 week challenge an extra week due to a lot of set backs from all the recent events that's transpired over the last month. We actually couldn't do any work here either because we were all very…
