God reveals His best through a coffee station

At my house, we have an overflow of mugs. The kitchen is pretty small, and one cabinet is filled with mugs. That’s a lot of space designated to mugs. My roommates started talking to me about building a mug wall. It took a couple months before I started seriously thinking about this plan. At first…

Finished Renovations

Today, I am finally posting the “after” pictures from my home renovation! I know it’s been forever, but I was waiting until I had a wide enough lens to show the rooms. It just so happened that the day I took all the pictures, we had a cloudy day which created some awesome natural light, which…

Kitchen Reveal!

As I prepare to move in (this Sunday!!!), I have been incredibly busy finishing up some last minute projects. I’ve purposefully waited to post pictures of the kitchen, because it has been the biggest transformation. I realize now that I don’t have very many good pictures of the kitchen.

The first set of pictures are the upstairs. We refinished the ceiling with ship lap. We made the ship…

Why a fixer upper?

To start, I wanted to shed light on my skillset and explain what inspired me to choose a fixer upper. There are two reasons that I chose a house that needed some work.  First, with a fixer upper, the owner has the creative freedoms to make the house their own. They are the designer. Second, money. Let’s…

Fixer Upper

As many of you know, I recently purchased my first home. I immediately fell in love with the exterior and upon walking through the house was sold after seeing the built-ins, fireplace, and older floors. This home has so much character and it satisfied my desire for an older styled house. That being said, it could definitely…
