We’re overhauling our kitchen and mudroom with Lowe’s and sharing our experience with you! Here’s our initial design meeting, how we pieced together panels + fillers and how we shopped for durable countertops.

Our Salvaged Wood Mirror DIY (+ Our Favorite Entryway Mirrors!)

entryway light | planter + plant | media console | vintage wood cactus (similar) Our entryway has taken every bit of 5 years to get to this point. (And hey, we’re actually celebrating 5 years of living in this house this July!) Over that period of time, we’ve talked about the journey extensively; this is where we started (whoa), this is when […]

Cute DIY Ball Hooks

cabinets | light We designed the Tree House mudroom to be a command center of sorts; with a wall of cabinetry (remember when it looked like this?), it’ll conceal the pantry, overflow tools and cleaning supplies, and it’s where we’ll do laundry, drop off muddy shoes and stash the carseat. It’s also the first space we see […]

pink closet makeover | lamb | hippo | teether | baskets | lacquer box Leading up to Lucy’s (actual) birthday, Scott and I had several conversations about how we would document her growth over the years – or maybe I should say, I agonized over how we would do so. How will we take weekly photos? Monthly? Yearly? […]

Painting Our Windows and Doors Black!

table | chambray shams | linen sheets | duvet | velvet pillows | bed | USB lamp The master bedroom in Tree House has come so far! It’s the only space in the home that we could even consider (somewhat) complete, only in the sense that it has baseboards. And window trim! And painted walls! And, as of […]

A Quick + Easy Mirror Makeover Using Rub ‘N Buff

With all the muchlargerprojects on our plate as of late, it is extremely satisfying to check off a quick, (way) less-than-one-hour job. You saw in our closet plans that we’ll be hanging a mirror above the changing table, and being the vintage mirror hoarders that we are, we had plenty to choose from! For a hot second, […]

Planning for a (Pink!) Multi-Functional Nursery Closet

DIY bi-fold door trim | above closet storage | brass knobs | brass cabinet latches A question that popped up more than a few times during our nursery kick-off was, but where’s the changing table? I brought it up briefly at the very bottom of the post, but today, I’m going to dive into those plans!
