I’m so excited to finally be sharing our home office with you guys! Our space started out really uninspiring and wasn’t somewhere I loved working. The white walls, tongue and groove ceiling and light fixture were a good base, but overall the space wasn’t functional. We were lacking storage and desk space and did not have a ton of room to work with. That’s when Canadian Tire came in with their fall/winter CANVAS Living Collection to spruce up the space. – T H E B E F O R E S- -T H E A F T E R S- We reworked the layout to fit two CANVAS Walker Dining tables which almost doubled our desk space. I love how much room… 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 »
It’s been just under a month since we shared the full reveal of our basement for this spring’s One Room Challenge, and since then the kids have loved playing in their new space! Previous to this renovation, we would spend as little time as possible in the basement. It always felt cold and uninviting. Since completing the space, Steve and I even love spending time down there reading books to the kids or checking out the new fort they’ve built. Installing the Karastan carpet was a game changer and has really made the space so cozy! When I was at my local flooring retailer last fall, I came across the Savanna Scenes Antelope print and right away thought about our… Read more »
I cannot believe we’ve made it to week six of our One Room Challenge, and I am so so excited to finally share the full space with you guys! This makeover was so much work, but so worth it. The kids absolutely love playing in their new space, and I love how it reflects their little personalities! – t h e b e f o r e – Incase you forget what we started with (I can hardly remember what it used to look like!) here is a reminder! It looks so much worse now looking back at these photos! Before we opened up under the stairs and removed the bump out above! – t h e a f t… Read more »
