Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]
Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]
For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
Ah! Its One Room Challenge Week 5 and I’m not going to lie I’m a bit stressed! We had a little hiccup with our tile. I hadn’t planned on doing niche’s originally so I never accounted for the extra tile they would require. It’s not a ton. Literally, I just need 10 more tiles, but […]
It is week 2 of the One Room Challenge and things are moving along! If you are new to the blog then you catch up on Week 1 here and see all of the before photos in its glory! Jon finished installing the tub in the main bathroom and now we wait for the shower/tub […]
I don’t know if I’m crazy or brilliant as of yet, but I have decided to take part in the Fall One Room Challenge and tackle the two bathrooms in our new house!!!!!! I figured nothing but a concrete deadline to get a fire under my butt and make sure the contractor is moving along […]
Here on Long Island, we have now entered phase 2! Which means that we are hopeful that we are back on track. Construction was back up and running under phase 1 and we were able to get insulation put in. We are now waiting on getting a window company scheduled to install a bay window […]
As you now know we finally bought a new house. It was in rough shape and what started out as a demo to remove the walls and put up new sheetrock has turned into so much more! Once we finished the demo and removed the walls, insulation and Limonium flooring we realized so much more […]
If you have been following along on this blog for some time then you know that a couple of years ago we had to sell our house. We originally bought the house as newlyweds when kids weren’t even a thought. In fact, we declared we just wanted dogs and no kids! So, the fact that […]
It’s reveal day! I have never been so happy to type those words! Like any renovation project there were ups and downs, but add in a tight deadline for a blog series reveal and a super inquisitive Mom that likes to project manage and you have a whole other level of stress because you don’t […]
Oh, guys, it was only a matter of time before my relationship with Frank (my contractor) hit a hiccup! We were in love. At least I was! His rate was fair, he is super friendly, knowledgable and has always arrived on time and is overall a hard worker. I was already dreaming of all of […]
My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.
Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.
On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.
