Things to come...

I feel like there are so many things to catch up on and blog about, I might as well write out my blogging to-do list here to get a fire lit.  And I'll throw in a few sneak peaks while I'm at it.

The Closet

Stenciling is complete.  Clothes are hung, a bit more organization to be done, but I'm still not finished with the rest of the room.  A "how-to" is coming, though, I'm not calling myself a stenciling pro by any means, it'll be more a lessons learned post if anything.

Big Girl Room Updates

Curtains are complete. Book shelves are up. Still need to get some stuff up on the walls, slowly but surely we are chugging along.

The major reno is complete, but there is still a lot of work to be done.  This is a pretty much a soe what tidied up real life shot.  Crap on top of the fridge, Brita on the island, missing outlet covers, and a sink full of dishes and sippies that I tried to keep out of view.  Basically, this is what it looks like for maybe 5 minutes after I clean up and wipe down, before being asked for more milk and food and handed random toys.  We are still waiting on the butcher block counter to come in for the island and we need to paint the cabinets and make a few other fixes that I'll detail in a whole post.  Promise!

Back to the Future

I finally got a new phone today!  I went with the iPhone 6 and actually was able to get a better/cheaper plan with a loyalty discount.  #verizon4lyfe... or 15 years whatever.  I ordered a case when I got home, but had such a hard time deciding.  I would have asked for input, but I need it ASAP because I know klutzy little hands are going to be all over it, mostly my own.

And finally, I need to post Kenley's 18 month update, an overdue sister/sister post, and another insta photo dump.

    It looks amazing! love the color palette.

  2. The closet is fantastic. Lovely!

  3. Your kitchen looks amazing! Just out of curiosity, do white cabinets stay pretty clean? I'd love a white kitchen but hubby is against it :) I love the curtains in Ashlynn's room too, especially next to those big windows!

  4. I feel like these cabinets (that the current owner painted) seem to have a film. They are knicked in areas, and between two kids and two dogs (and two parents who use the kitchen regularly) there are splatters, drips, etc. Most of the time, I don't even notice it until I'm cleaning, but it terms of like dirt and grime, it's not that bad. We are going to paint the bottom black which my contractor warned me would show more than the white. So we'll see!

  5. I think I audibly gasped at the her closet. It is perfection!! I love it

  6. Her room!!! You guys have been busy little bees. Her closet is downright gorgeous!!

  7. You turned an open closet into a beautiful space. I LOVE IT!

  8. SUPER behind on reading this, but just wanted to say that I love it all! (especially the stenciling!!!!!) What is that little board in the corner in her room? Is it magnetic? I love that!

  9. Can I move in?! Seriously that closet still has me swooning! Love it all!!

  10. I am swooning over her stenciled closet! I can't wait to see the how to! Also your kitchen is looking fabulous! and hello don't we all try to avoid photographing the sink full of sippies?! I'm right there with you sister.

  11. Love what you did with that kitchen! And is it random, I really love the small touches (gold planter, blue and white planter)? Adds so much! Super cute.


I love hearing from my readers! Be sure to check back as I try to respond to all comments and questions here in the comment form :)
