Bedroom! Done!

We say this every time for every room, but we’ll say it again, bedroom, you’ve come a long way! We’ve been using and loving this room with our whole hearts for the last several months, but over the past few weeks, we’ve been dialing it in just so. It’s funny, because we thought our bedroom would be […]

Small Victories In the Laundry Room!

Things seem to be busier than ever around here, and yet I’m having a hard time sitting down to write about all the updates – mostly because I don’t even know where to start. Summer is in full swing, and so in-between barbecues and late night gatherings and weddings and nights away and and out-of-towners in, we’re watching […]

IKEA Ekby Turned Vanity: Will It Float?

We’re slowly chugging along on finishing up the bedroom, while also planning for laundry cabinets and drawing up ideas for the backyard this summer(!). Today, I wanted to share a super simple IKEA hack – with the term hack being used lightly – for a perfectly sized, slim floating vanity using the EKBY ALEX. Stepping back quickly to […]

Demolition Wrap-Up + What’s Next

Hello, 2016! How have you been? What have we missed? Can we talk about Making a Murderer? (We devoured 10 hours in just a handful of days, yowza.) Even so, we kicked it into high gear these last couple of weeks – a little bit here, a lot bit there – but first, let’s wrap up the […]

DOOR! DOOR! DOOR!

This post is in collaboration with Pella Windows & Doors. I feel as though this update couldn’t possibly come to you with more enthusiasm, so just imagine this: as we tell the story, we’re shouting! We’re grinning non-stop, and we’re jumping up and down. I’m feeling flustered just trying to find words at all (a rarity, […]

Electricity + A Window + A Door + All the Things

When we last left off with the kitchen, we had a pretty, minty pocket door. We were toying with the idea of removing a wing wall from the dining room leading into the kitchen*, and we were debating between three shades of white paint for the cabinets. Now, we’ve moved on to the hired work […]

DIY Outdoor Gate

I feel as though I keep saying this, but spring is sort-of-kind-of finally here in Chicago! (One day it’s 40, the next day it’s 70.) We’ve been spending a lot of time indoors making endless decisions about the baseboards (yup, still!), but over the weekend, we took advantage of a sunny day – albeit, a […]

From Cart to Island (aka DIY Tabletop)

Remember our trip to Jubilee where we picked up 4 new-to-us furniture pieces for the home? And remember how they all needed a little love (in one way or another)? Over the weekend, we tackled the first of the four, raising that old media cart to counter height and installing a faux butcher block top […]
