  • Modern Ranch Reno: DIY Outdoor Swings

    This post is sponsored by National Hardware. All opinions and product selections are my own. My kids have been begging for some outdoor swings ever since we moved into our new house. At our old house we had a swing set and at our new house we had the idea of doing some swings underneath our covered patio.  We wanted to do them under the patio so that in the summer time and the very hot months in Arizona we can still enjoy them. We ended up doing 3 DIY Outdoor Swings on the covered patio and these were very easy to build, inexpensive and a one day project. Here are the things you will need to make a single swing. 2″x8″ douglas fir studs cut to 3o” long Random orbital sander with 80 grit sand paper 2- Swing Hook Kit 8- 1/2 Wire Cable Clamps Wood Stain Staining and wiping cloths 20′ of 1/2″ braided rope…we got ours here, we chose light grey. Spray Paint Impact Driver with 3/4″ deep impact socket, or a 3/8″ socket wrench with 3/4″…

  • Park Home Reno: Entry Way Makeover

    This post is sponsored by The Home Depot. All opinions and product selections are my own.  Today is the first reveal of our new house and what better place to start than the entry way to the home! I started by painting all of the walls white (Behr-Frost) and the door a rich navy (Behr-Starless Night). Next I hung this amazing light from The Home Depot. This 6-Light Aged Bronze Pendant with Wood Accents is by Home Decorators Collection and it was my inspiration for the whole space. I installed these dimmable LED Clear vintage style light bulbs by FEIT Electric and they were exactly what this light and this space needed. The vintage feel of the lights really set the tone for the whole space. I love that they look vintage and have so much character but that they are also dimmable LEDs! Doesn’t the amber filament look so cool with the wood tone of the chandelier?  They compliment each other perfectly! These would also look amazing in a lamp or another fixture and they’re even cool to the…

  • Park Home Reno: Move in Day

    Hi friends! It’s Mallory – I’m so excited to finally show you guys our new house!!!! We closed on the old house today so it’s officially gone! So bittersweet! We’ve been in our new house for about a week and we are just so in love! We are slowly making it our own and it’s been so fun!!! I took some shots on move-in day to give you an idea of where we started. The previous owners (friends of ours!) only lived here for a year before finding their dream property just a few minutes away. They had done some MAJOR renovations to this home while they lived here so a ton of the hard work was done. They completely opened up the floor plan, redid all the floors, about 90% of the kitchen, some work in the bathrooms and some work in the basement to update it. This would have been a MASSIVE project without the work they did but luckily we swooped in and took over after the huge stuff was done. Lucky us! 😉 The home is…

    Saying Goodbye #mallorysprescottviewhome

    Life is funny. A year ago, I was knee deep in renovation turning this 1700 square foot home into our little dream home. I had no idea that 13 months later, it would be sold and our family would be moving into our long-term dream home. We knew that it would be somewhat temporary but definitely not 13 months temporary. We get the keys to our new house today. The home we are selling doesn’t close until the 14th and we are doing a prepossession on the new house. That basically means we rent until we close, which will be later this month. If you read this post, you know that we bought the new house from our friends here in Prescott. The new house is beautiful and we are so excited to do some fun projects and renovations to make it our own! Savannah is coming up to Prescott (a 2-hour drive from her house in Mesa) to help me start moving. She hasn’t seen our new house yet so I’m excited for her to be here. July was…

  • DIY Pool Organizer

    Summer in Arizona can only mean one thing, pool time! With temperatures reaching 100-120 degrees daily, we have spent hours and hours by the pool. We realized that pool activities require a bunch of accessories, toys, etc. We have pool floats, diving rings, goggles, towels, sunscreen and tons more. By the looks of our little shelving area, it was time for some color and organization! The shelving unit was working great but the bins were very sad looking and my kids just threw everything everywhere when it was time to clean up.  When we don’t have a system in place, they just aren’t sure where things go and it tends to get disorganized very quickly. We decided to replace the bins with some sturdy plastic bins in two different sizes to accommodate the different pool supplies that we had. We spray painted the bins with Krylon Outdoor Décor spray paint in Satin Bluegrass. I love the cool blue/green color that reminds me of the crisp, cool pool water! It took 2-3 coats of Krylon Outdoor Décor spray paint to paint…

  • Prescott View Home Reno: Master Bedroom Sources

    As promised, I’m back today with the sources for everything in our master bedroom. If you missed it, you can check out the master bedroom reveal here. I’ll start with the furniture because that is the bare foundation of the room, in my opinion.The dressers and side tables are from the Hemnes from Ikea. I got them about 2 years ago and they’ve been great. The pink tufted bench is from Wayfair. You can find it online here: Upholstered Bedroom Bench. This ceiling fan needs a full-fledge standing ovation or a round of applause at least. I mean, I have never LOVED a ceiling fan because from a design stand point, there are few that aren’t an eyesore. This is the opposite. I have had SO many questions about it and I feel like that’s why we can agree that this one takes the cake. I was lucky enough to have the amazing Hepburn Fan sent to me by Hunter Fan Company and I will literally shout from the rooftops proclaiming my love for it. It has a custom switch on…
