How We Installed Our Laundry Cabinets

When we last left off with the laundry room cabinets, we had just finished building them – fresh from their flat-packed boxes! – and we laid them in place until we were ready to install. Aside from the hanging rail system that we’ve used in the past for our fauxdenzas, we had yet to hang cabinets […]

Bathroom! Done!

With a place for everything, and everything in its place, we’re officially calling the bathroom done! It’s been a few months since we first shared our plans, but the entire process felt surprisingly painless. After last year’s kitchen debacle still weighing heavy on our minds, we’ll be the first to admit that we were overly cautious when […]

Our Skinny Space Storage Solution for the Bathroom

We took last week off to rest our brains, recharge and have an adventure. Not even two days into vacation, we found ourselves talking about bedroom trim and paint (where to end that pesky line!), and I spent an embarrassing amount of time on eBay searching for the perfect vintage rug. I guess that’s to say […]

Bathroom Planning + a Kohler Day Trip!

We guess that our bathroom was last renovated about thirty years ago, simply based on the current fixtures and the state in which they (sort of) stand. There is nothing remarkable in how it was done, and at the very least, we can say that the design is inoffensive; but over time, little grout remains between the tiled floor, […]

Bed + Bath + Laundry: Laundry Edition

To see the bed + bath + laundry renovation party unfold, make sure to check out part I (the bathroom) and part II (the bedroom)! A laundry room was one of those weird things that was on my wish list when we were house hunting. The idea of having a space to lay our sweaters, fold towels and pull […]

Bed + Bath + Laundry (But First, Bath!)

For the last two years, we’ve focused almost every bit of our attention on the first floor. It’s where we spend most of our time, and with the kitchen finally checked off, we’re calling the main level done-for-now! That said, the second floor – with the exception of studio updates and the smaller work room […]

The Guest Room: Now Accepting Guests!

Our guest room is complete! And good thing, because we have a crew of friends stopping in every other weekend through December. Now instead of welcoming them with apologies (um, you don’t mind the joint compound on the walls, right? Oh, and that closet door sticks; you don’t need to use it, do you?), we […]

How Did Our Rental Decisions Hold Up More Than One Year Later?

Roughly a year and a half ago, we completed a full renovation of the garden unit apartment in the basement of our home. Do you remember where we started? Back then, the unit was a little darker and a little colder than what we would have preferred – and that’s putting it politely! It also […]

Would You Change the Layout of Your Home?

sconce | pillow | stool | floating vanity | grey rug Have you or would you change the layout of your home? Moving, removing, or adding walls within a home can seem like a daunting task at first, especially if you’ve never been through the process. Not to mention, smashing up perfectly good drywall or […]
