Garden Rehab

Welcome to my traveling home adventure! Last weekend was my mother-in-law’s birthday. We spent the weekend with her in Vermont and it was incredibly hot – and it was only May! She’s been in down-sizing mode, so I knew I had to be practical with her gift this year. I decided to tackle the veryContinue reading “Garden Rehab”

The Main Bathroom Remodel – Part 2

Read part 1 here! Who Doesn’t Love Avocado? If you recall, a couple of weeks ago I shared the story of our avocado green bathroom remodel and the demolition process. Let’s get back to where we were! As a delightful reminder, the before photos: The new plan Since our options for real change were limitedContinue reading “The Main Bathroom Remodel – Part 2”

The Main Bath Remodel – Part 1

Who Doesn’t Love Avocado? I do, but this was a bit much. Welcome to my Avocado Bathroom. Sister to the Harvest Gold bathroom. This main bath remodel wasn’t our physically largest project, but was the most anticipated and *cringe* most expensive one to date. There is a reason why they say bathrooms and kitchens sellContinue reading “The Main Bath Remodel – Part 1”

DIY Fabric Softener

I hate waste. In my household, we try to live by the three R’s; Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. There is a reason that Reduce and Reuse come first in the three R’s, too. And if you’ve been seeing the news over the past few years, less and less of our recycling is actually being recycled.Continue reading “DIY Fabric Softener”

It’s the Harvest Gold for Me

We were very lucky to find a house with 2 full baths in our price range back in 2015. That being said, we knew that both bathrooms would need to be gutted. Like every mid-century modern home, ours came with colorful bathrooms. At least the toilets weren’t colored. That saved some money! Let’s get startedContinue reading “It’s the Harvest Gold for Me”

Strip that down for me

I hate the stairs in my house. Like nearly every bit of wood trim in the house, they were stained a very dark, very dated brown. It’s hard enough to bring natural light into our home, living at the bottom of a hill in the woods. When we first moved in, I attacked nearly everyContinue reading “Strip that down for me”

A Kitchen Spruce Up

The Backstory The kitchen hasn’t been touched yet – but it was time for a kitchen spruce up. When we moved into our home in 2015, it was from a very tiny apartment and so the kitchen felt enormous to me. The new kitchen had about 5 times the counter space (I may have aboutContinue reading “A Kitchen Spruce Up”

DIY Room Renovation

Utility Room Makeover Edition How it Began We bought our 1977 raised ranch back in 2015. At the time of purchase, some of the rooms had been spruced up, but others not so much. Being a raised ranch, there is no dedicated basement space (the whole lower level is considered a “basement”). Thus began ourContinue reading “DIY Room Renovation”
