We recently painted the exterior of our brick home to make it feel more like “us,” and we also added cedar shutters. See the finished exterior HERE! Once we did that, our very dark (and very weathered) wood front door no longer went with the exterior of the house. Instead of spending additional money to […]

cottage style home exterior front porch

We have spent some time and budget on redoing the exterior of our home after dreaming and saving for a few years, and it has truly made the house feel so much more like “us” than it did before! We painted the brick [see BEFORE + AFTER HERE] after testing out numerous paint colors [winning […]

laundry room refresh open shelves

We’ve been putting off this project ever since we moved into our home almost 7 years ago, and now we’re wondering why we waited so long! This 2 day laundry room renovation was a long time coming, and it feels so good to be done. Looking back, I think I was (sadly and embarrassingly) too […]

We have wanted a painted white brick home since three homes ago, and we finally took the plunge! Over the past few weeks, we’ve been trying out different tones of white paints and polling my IG buddies [HERE] to find the perfect (for us!) color. We wanted a saturated, creamy, warm white that felt like […]

Hey friends! In celebration of World Book Day, I wanted to share a few inspirational book-loving Instagram feeds! If you have been with me for very long, you know I have a deep love for books. I used to be a high school English teacher, so it goes without saying that books have been a […]

My four little women love to look through Pinterest with me and choose crafts for us to do together. A few weeks ago, they chose a DIY felt flower mobile! The photo inspo they chose were a little advanced for little hands, so we simplified the DIY felt flower mobile to be a bit more […]

During these weird times of self-isolation, I find myself craving a spot of happiness in the form of growing things. Now, let’s be real — I’m NO plant lady. In fact, I’m quite the opposite, actually! I like to refer to myself as “plant challenged,” and I can’t even keep alive succulents. However, about a […]

Hey, friends! Spring vibes are here! Wanted to add a bit o’ green to this gorgeous Amelie mirror gifted by Arhaus, so I grabbed some greenery, floral wire and wire cutters and went to work! I love how it adds a touch of whimsy and spring green to the space, plus the mirror serves as […]

Well, it’s taken long enough (ha!) but we’re finally done updating our modern farmhouse style kitchen! When we moved into this home six years ago, we made a few updates to the kitchen on a seriously tight budget, like DIY concrete countertops [HERE] and chalk paint for a cabinet refresh. While those were awesome DIY’s […]

*this post is sponsored by Walmart – thank you for supporting the brands that support our blog! Over the years living in this home, our girls have switched rooms and room mates so many times that we stopped trying very hard at keeping their closets organized and user-friendly. Now that they are pretty much settled […]

Hey, friends!Thought I’d share the simple steps to making the holiday hoop wreath I whipped up today. It really is so easy, and it doesn’t cost much to make a pretty big statement. You’ll need an embroidery hoop, stems or flowers of your choice and some jute twine. Start with a base layer of the […]

Growing up, my Mom always had an affinity for pops of red. I don’t know if it’s because our last name is/was Hart, but we always knew my Mom would love anything we bought for her that was red in hue: nail polish, cozy house slippers, kitchen things. It was and is her signature color! […]
