Before & After: Office Exterior

Today I wanted to drop back in and share with you how we updated the exterior of our office. This charming 1950's house was converted to a commercial office 14 years ago, but this past week we painted the dark red brick for a more beautiful bright white that simply looks so incredible!

I love the fresh new look, not to mention how much bigger the office looks now. Painting the brick was a classic choice for updating this older house, it really brought it back to life!

There are several projects still to complete, including more landscape.

The brick color is Benjamin Moore Soft Chamois, the trim color is Cedar Key, and the door was painted Chelsea Gray.


Recent Furniture Flips

I truly enjoy finding pieces of worn out and dated furniture from garage sales and thrift stores, and then turning them into something new and fabulous! Furniture flipping can be a fun way to get creative and recycle at the same time. Most of the time all it takes is a little paint and a few minor repairs to update an old piece.


Framed Art in E's Room

Over the last few months, I have assisted my two year old daughter with painting, using acrylics and watercolors on cardstock. I have been wanting to add more color in her bedroom, so I decided to frame a few of her works of art in a collection. I love the bright pink abstract against the neutral walls. The light gray matted frames from Ikea are perfect paired with the gray dresser mirror.

Having a toddler is so much fun! She was so excited about her paintings being displayed in her room. She loves playing in her bedroom, but seeing her face light up by adding something special she made makes this mama smile.

Here's to a wonderful Easter weekend!

DIY Valentine's Day Teacher Gift

As Valentine's Day draws near I was inspired by the talented Eighteen25 blog when they shared this adorable idea on Instagram! I found the pair of mason jars for $3 at Target and filled them each with a package of M&M's. I added the fun red and white pompom ribbon and printed this oh so cute teacher printable tag from Eighteen25.

This is a thoughtful and fun way to show our teachers some love.

Have a great week!


2016 Christmas Home Tour

Welcome friends!

Today I wanted to share with you a part of my heart- the place I get to call home.

As soon as you enter through the front door this is the sight you see. Our front foyer and staircase is welcoming with plenty of greenery and white lights. This year I went with an all gold theme for our main tree. 

Moving to the main living area where we spend the majority of our time as a family. This tree was in our dining room last year and made its way back into the family room with a woodland theme this year.

I love seeing the wonder and excitement in my little girl's eyes. This is her second Christmas and its been so magical this year. My love for the season has grown since we get to experience it all with her! 

Not only is it the season to rejoice & celebrate our Savior's birth, but it's also a time to spend with dear family and friends.

Moving to the dining room. This year I simplified this space with a flocked wreath, a little garland, red pillows, and tiny trees added to our everyday decor. Of course, I had to display my traditional Christmas dishes on the table- love those.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Merry Christmas!
