    This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Floor & Decor. The opinions and text are all mine. I am excited that I get to show you the final part of my Modern Ranch Reno Laundry Room. My laundry room has been a major undertaking. If you have been following this laundry room renovation then you know that we came across some very unplanned things during this project. The Laundry Room has been in the works since July.

For this year’s Halloween decor, we are switching things up a bit and using purple as our feature color!

  • Modern Ranch Reno: How to Re-Grout a Brick Fireplace

    When I moved into my house one of the first things I was dying to get my hands on was this fireplace in our main family room. I wanted to try and re-grout the brick fireplace so that it looked more my style. I had never re-grouted before and I did not have any experience with brick but I really wanted to make it happen. I was shocked at how easy re-grouting my brick fireplace really was. I was able to re-grout my fireplace using 4 bags of white mortar and a little bit of hard work. I decided to make a video just for you to show you how easy it really was.   Here is a list of the materials: White Mortar or White Grout ( I showed the guy working at Marvel in Mesa, Az which is stone and brick store the size of the fireplace and he told me how many bags or mortar I needed.) Piping Bag Brick or tile Trowel Gloves  Bucket Grout Mixture Drill to use with grout mixture Water I love how…

  • Modern Ranch Reno: My New Kitchen Sink

    This post is sponsored by Elkay. All opinions are our own. My kitchen has been through many different phases. I want to take you through all the phases so far of our kitchen. Let’s start at the beginning. When we moved into the house the kitchen was dark and not the light and bright look I was wanting in a kitchen. The kitchen is such an important part of our home. It’s were our family starts and ends the day. The cabinets were painted to make them look like they are cherry wood so the first thing I wanted to do was to paint the cabinets white. I got to work the week that we got the keys to the new house. I wanted the cabinets to be painted and ready right when we moved in. The next step of making my kitchen more of what I wanted was a backsplash. The only problem with a backsplash is I could not choose one that I was ready to commit to. I found an image on Pinterest that I loved of an…

  • Modern Ranch Reno: Laundry Room Reno Part 3 Flooring

    This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Floor & Decor. The opinions and words are all mine.   We partnered with one of our favorite companies Floor & Decor to transform our dated laundry room into a sleek, chic and timeless laundry room that is perfect for our family. My laundry room was very dated. It had some 80’s wallpaper and plain tile and old cabinets. We had to overcome a few unexpected hurdles that we were not planning and I talked all about it in the demo part of this Laundry Room Renovation in Part 1 of this project HERE But before we even started the the demo on the laundry room we headed to Floor & Decor to pick out the tile that we would be using for this space. Floor & Decor does not only have incredibly helpful and also very knowledgeable employees in the store, there are SO many in stock options and great prices. You can read all about our Floor & Decor Store Tour HERE. Now on to the dirty…

  • Crosstown Classic with Elkay

    This post is sponsored by Elkay. All opinions are our own. There are times in life when you look around and realize how blessed you truly are. Savannah and I are literally working our dream jobs. A job no one heard of less than 10 years ago. Being a blogger is a weird job. When people ask what we do, they look puzzled when we reply. That being said, we had one of those “pinch me” moments a few weeks ago when we attended the Crosstown Classic with Elkay in Chicago, Illinois. Elkay wanted to give us a true Chicago experience and boy, it did not disappoint. It started with us arriving at the most unbelievably unique and gorgeous hotel we have ever stayed in. For real.  Elkay really outdid themselves with the hotel alone. We stayed in EMC2 and it was literally a designer’s dream come true! It was absolutely breathtaking with the coolest view of the city! The next morning we attended a tour of their Broadview Plant. We had a yummy lunch and watched a presentation with…
