    Rustic Wood Kitchen Island

    Last week we had one of those triumphant moments.  The kind where you feel like Mr. Rocky Balboa at the top of the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s lengthy stone stairs, fist pumping and what not, because you accomplished something monumental.  I can hear Eye of the Tiger playing now as I think about that house […]

    Eat In Breakfast Nook In Farmhouse Kitchen

    Back in November, just before Thanksgiving rolled around, I told a tale of how we accumulated all of our appliances (for the kitchen and laundry room) for much lower than sticker price.  It’s a good story.  I’ll pause for a moment while you read it….pausing for dramatic effect….I know, crazy right?!  But we never really […]

    Kitchen Remodel Gutting

    I started writing a post to recap our kitchen renovation before and after at our first house, but after adding 40-ish photos, none of which I felt like I could part with, and 2,000 plus words it needed to be broken up.  Kind of like that couple you love to hate in your favorite 90s […]

    I believe in two kinds of vows when it comes to marriage…the wedding vows that you get up and recite in front of all your friends and family…aka…the pretty vows.  Then there are the real vows.  Colby and I have them.  For instance, Colby vows that if we ever split up, he HAS to take […]

    Warning…this post is loooooong!  As in I’m about to tell a few too many bad jokes (ie…a man walked into a bar…ouch…get it?!) and a few too many bad puns (case in point…this post’s title).  So hold onto your britches folks…we’re bringing you the whole kitchen beam shebang today.  Boom….mic drop beam drop. She’s a […]

  • Magnetic Paint Fail

    Three things for your Monday morning.  One…90s music is SOOOOOO much better than today’s new hits.  I mean c’mon…90s Britney vs today’s Britney?  Or Katy Perry vs the Spice Girls?  No contest.  Two…winter needs to be over with a capital “O”.  But alas…we’re still stuck in single digits and below.  And three…magnetic wall paint is […]

    Kitchen Pantry Pull Out Shelf Number 3

    I’m so mad at Young House Love right now for stealing pretty much the only worthwhile pantry pun out there (you know…pants party/pantry party…Anchorman).  Actually not really, it’s pretty much impossible to get mad at those two Young-Sters!  But they totally trumped me!  Curses!  Next time YHL, next time. So yesterday we revealed our pantry […]

    Kitchen Pantry Before And After

    Let’s finish this pantry, shall we?!  Well…kind of.  The pantry is signed, sealed, delivered done, fully organized and functional.  But after going through all the photos and photo editing and whatnot, I was left with 30+ pics of “finishing and organizing the pantry”.  Uh…long blog post say what?!  And since I value sleep these days […]

    Pull Out Kitchen Pantry Shelves

    We owe you guys a pantry update.  Like a serious pantry update especially since we finished it this weekend (booyah!) AND organized it this weekend (double booyah!).  But last we left off on this little pantry shelf saga we were just getting around to installing those pull out shelves.  For those of you just joining […]

    Pantry Framing Part 1

    Long time no kitchen talk!  What gives?!  It’s like we’ve been busy celebrating Christmas and New Year’s and an anniversary (Colby and I recently hit the five year mark…dating wise…we haven’t made it that far yet in the marriage department yet…fingers crossed!).  When we last left off in our kitchen remodel, which I’m coining “Operation […]

    Old Wood Sheathing In Kitchen Post Poly

    We’re fans of exposing things around these parts.  Well, let me clarify, exposing old elements of our home (sheesh…get your minds out of the gutter folks….although Colby sometimes…wait…I’m not gonna go here).  So when we last left off on this little ol’ blog of ours, we left with a teaser of sorts and showed you […]
