When we were looking at houses there were certain things on my must list and a white kitchen was one of them. I was looking for a finished one right off the bat, but Jeff was hoping to find one we’d be able to customize just the way we liked. Guess who won that battle? Ha! In the long run I’m so glad we got to pick and choose exactly what we wanted.
We did a lot; changed floors, backsplash, cabinet and wall color, light fixtures and hardware. We also added a wine fridge, thanks to our parents. But decided to leave the counter tops and island color and are loving how it gives it a fun pop. I’m so happy we went with house we did and now, after six months, I’m excited to share some before and after photos of our now white kitchen. continue reading
Happy Friday! I’m so excited to have a lazy weekend and tackle some house projects that have been looming over us for awhile now. Like hopefully hanging this chair!
But before we dive into that I wanted to share a house photo. This is the living room section of our great room. When we bought the house this was actually a bedroom, but we wanted a big open room so we knocked the (load bearing) wall down and opened it up. We are still waiting on a built-in to go inside the old closet. continue reading
I’m someone who requires a lot of sleep to function. I wake up for work around five am, so by 9 pm I’m ready to crash and call it a night. My bed has always been my sanctuary, but ever since we moved into our huge new master suite our old bed felt so teeny tiny in the room.
Recently Jeff and I and got the chance to upgrade from our old queen size mattress to a king from Leesa. If you’re not familiar Leesa is an exclusively online mattress company. They’ve designed and crafted a beautiful mattress that really helps give you the best night’s sleep. They’re delivered right to your door step in a box about the size of a mini-fridge. I couldn’t believe my king mattress was inside! Even better, for every 10 mattresses they sell, they donate one to a shelter. If you’re still not sold, they have a 100-night risk-free guarantee. continue reading
