  • Our Come Back Song

    Remodeled Rustic Kitchen

    In the infamous words of Darius Rucker, this is our “bad, come back song”.  I know.  We’ve been MIA here on the good ol’ blog in the worst way and we’re sorry…kind of…but kind of not because we’ve been through alot!  In a good way.  So what have we been up to?  The reader’s digest […]

    Nailing Up Ceiling Planking

    Today we’re talking about planking.  Laundry room ceiling planking.  Not the cop car, Macy’s escalator, red carpet, or the middle of the lawn planking fad that’s all over the internets.  No.  Different planking. After gutting out our laundry room for a much needed reno, we were left with a super naked ceiling.  We opted to […]

    Neutral Unaccessorized Laundry Room Base

    For those of you who follow us on Instagram (and if you’re not you should…you’re totally missing out…hashtag shameless plug) you may have caught this little gem of a laundry room makeover: And I know what you’re thinking, it’s something along the lines of….”Oh em gee…what happened to your laundry room?!”  “Where did the metal […]

  • The Great Coffee Table Rotation

    Living Room Post Coffee Table Switch

    Earlier this week, I was talking about how my style has been shifting.  Shifting from a beachy, cottage, country farmhouse type vibe to a more sophisticated yet quirky Emily Henderson meets Nate Berkus style, and it feels soooooo right!  In the middle of this style shift I was hating on our living room.  Like, HATING […]

    Shifting Styles

    I’m pretty certain I’ve used my favorite Britney song (Ooops…I Did It Again) as a blog post title once before but alas, a Google search failed to unearth such musings.  How appropriate for the first post title after a nearly two month hiatus…after a previous two month hiatus earlier this year.  Let’s just say, steady […]

  • Cloudy With A Chance Of Guests

    Rustic & Masculine Guest Room Mood Board

    According to recent forecasts, the outlook for this coming weekend is cloudy with a chance of guests.  Sarcastically fortunate for us, our guest room looks like this: Oh wait…it gets better…here’s the view from another angle: In our defense, the guest room is looking gnarly because our master bedroom closet is under construction.  Technically, it’s […]

  • You’re Sill The One

    Built Up Porch Window Sill

    I started writing this post going into a rousing round of Shania Twain “you’re still the one” lyrics circa 1998 but replacing “still” with “sill” along with a few other choice words, but I didn’t.  You’re welcome.  So now that you have THAT song permanently stuck in your head, let’s talk about our porch reno […]

  • Porch
  • The State Of The Porch Address

    Let’s talk porches.  In particular our front porch which we decided to “remodel” last fall.  And by remodel I mean rip the whole thing apart, expose it to the elements, and put it all back together again Humpty Dumpty style.  Mind you, this was fall…in Maine…and a MAJOR undertaking of a project.  Needless to say, […]

    Lime Dining Room Chairs

    When we last left off on this little dining room refresh saga, I left you with a “to be continued”…and had intended to “continue” last week…my bad!  But here we are today with the aforementioned TBC.  Without further ado, I bring you our freshly painted dining room chairs. Hello lover lime!  I went bold.  Just […]

  • We’re Back…Bueller…Bueller

    Triumphant Return From Blogging Hiatus

    After a 2+ month blogging hiatus, we’re back with a vengeance John McClain style…okay…John McClain style without some form of public transportation destruction.  Anybody still with us?  Bueller?  Bueller?  The break was definitely not intentional (remember…intentional…my word of the year?!) but turned out just what we needed.  Why the break?  Well, pull up a chair […]

    Master Closet Planning

    Let’s talk closets today.  Our master bedroom closet in particular.  And how much of a hot mess it is.  Actually, it’s more like the mullet of the closet world.  In the front it’s all business as usual.  It doesn’t look too bad with the galvanized curtain rod and makeshift drop cloth curtains. But then you […]
