Introducing for the First Time, Outdoor Cheer!

As our house continues to feel more and more like home each year – and not just a construction site where we happen to sleep! – I’ve gradually convinced Kim that decorating for the holidays makes sense. Don’t get me wrong, m’lady loves Christmas like nobody’s business – it’s just that the past two winters […]

Color Match Technology with Ace Hardware

Have you ever had an item you love – say, a favorite tee or art print – color matched to paint? When we choose colors for our home, you’ve probably picked up on the fact that, more often than not, we rely on classic colors: white, black and navy. So when Ace Hardware asked us […]

Media Makeover with Amy Howard + a Giveaway!

With the kitchen and nook checked off our list, we were asked earlier this week if that completes our first floor, and if so, what’s next? Well, we’re thisclose, with the exception being a teeny bathroom that’ll have to wait. In the meantime, we’ve been kicking out a handful of things that we’ve been meaning to do for a while – pruning our […]

CFL vs. LED + Color Temperature + Getting It Right (Finally!)

This seemingly simple story has been a long time in the making – 2 years, but who’s counting? – and we’ve just now finally nailed our living and dining room lighting. Well, not the fixtures (we’ve been content with those for a while!), but the actual bulbs! If you’ve been with us since we bought our home in 2013, […]

An Organized Garage = Happy DIYers (+ a Giveaway!)

Our plans for the garage were a bit of a roller coaster. Initially, we thought we’d hang some hooks, get our bicycles off the floor and call it a day. But then we remembered, ha, this is us!, and considering we seemingly love to add an element of extra work to most things (busted), we thought, but how can […]

OPI On the Porch + a Giveaway!

Right after we planted Round Two of our baby garden, it started to rain – and rain and rain and rain. Our garden is going nuts (yeah!), but with the rain came cold weather, and so we find ourselves wishing and hoping that one day – someday soon! – we can enjoy our front porch […]

Workshop Color + Function

After patching and repairing the workshop walls last week, we finally dived into the most rewarding part of that process – paint! Although there were moments of waffling and weakness on our chosen paint chip, Scott convinced me to stick to our guns (and go with our guts), and our walls are now the perfect […]

31 Days of Color with Ace + A Dog Station Upgrade

Throughout the month of March, Ace Hardware is launching a fun and interactive 31 Days of Color experience, in which a new color will be unveiled every day. (Be sure to check out what the rest of the Ace team will be doing!) We’ve chosen a color that has inspired us, Clark+Kensington’s That’s Hula-rious, and […]

Our Little Outlet Coats + Ace Kick-Off

This little home update officially kicks off our Ace Hardware partnership this year, and for that, we are so happy and thankful! We’ve always had such a great time working with the team behind that name, and we love that although they provide us with month-to-month post guidelines, they allow us to choose the projects […]
