It’s been a while since I’ve done a weekend post. Life gets so much busier in the summer, but I finally feel like I’m getting back into our regular routine. If you’ve been following some of our Instagram and blog posts, you might know that we’ve been working on some projects at our own home over the last couple of months. We shared our garden shed reveal a couple weeks ago, and our kids bath update this past week. I shared that I was still looking for some vintage pieces to finish off the kids bathroom. I love the idea of a little antique wood step stool they can use to wash their hands and brush their teeth. This is… Read more »
This summer, we’ve been working on some smaller projects around our house. We shared our Garden Shed Reveal on the blog a couple weeks ago, and today we are sharing the updates we made to our kids bathroom! -THE BEFORE- When we moved into our home 2 years ago, this was definitely the nicest room in our house. The previous owners had done some really great updates to this bathroom, which made the perfect base to work off of. Compare to the rest of the projects that we’ve tackled, I was excited that this one only needed some small changes! Over the last year and a half, I’ve been thinking up different ideas of some small changes we could… Read more »
Throughout the summer, we’ve been working through some projects in our backyard to get it a little closer to our end goal, (which includes various seating areas and lots of lavender and hydrangea bushes!) However, before we can start adding in gardens and picking out furniture we’ve got some items to check off the list, including our garden shed. Since moving in, I had planned to repaint it, but was excited to work with the symmetrical shape and flower boxes.
Since moving into our home just under 2 years ago, we have been tackling it one room at a time to add in more character with hardwood floors, millwork and larger mouldings. Over the last year, we have included Metrie’s Complete Pre-Painted Shiplap in our formal living room and basement to make both spaces feel more custom, and it’s one of my favourite details! In our living room, it adds just a bit more interest and texture to the minimal bookshelves, and I love how it gives a more layered look. The shiplap comes pre-painted so you don’t have to worry about dry time. Just measure cut and install. This means no painting equipment is required, and will also allow… Read more »
Happy Saturday! We spent the day cleaning and setting up our family cottage. We were a little hesitant about taking the kids along, but are so glad we did! They spent the entire day playing on the beach and building sand castles. We just got home and tucked them into bed, and I am already looking forward to spending more time up there with them! If you follow us over on Instagram, I shared a bit about our plans for our kids bathroom update. When we moved into our home just under 2 years ago, this bathroom was one of my favourite rooms in the house. I still really like a lot of the details, but just want to make… Read more »
