  • 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…

  • Prescott View Home Reno: Choosing finishes for a bathroom renovation

    This post was brought to you by the Delta Faucet Company. I received free product from Delta Faucet to write this post, but all opinions expressed are my own. Hello friends! I am so excited to finally be sharing more info about my recent bathroom makeover! It was my biggest undertaking to date but I am so thrilled with the turn out. For this space, I knew I wanted a primarily “white” bathroom. I chose white finishes, white paint and a lot of marble which had variations of white and grey in it. I knew I’d accessorize with a bit of color and I wanted a warm metal (gold, brass, bronze) to accent the space. When shopping for bathroom fixtures, I was drawn to Delta’s Champagne Bronze finish and this sealed the deal for my decision. I knew the warm metal finish would really pop against all of the white in the space. For the bathtub, I chose the Cassidy Roman Tub and Hand shower trim in Champagne Bronze, of course! I absolutely love the lines of this piece and…

  • 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…

  • 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 a Pool Organizer. 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…

  • Modern Ranch Reno: Half Bathroom Flooring Done Cheap and Easy- Our $50 Makeover

    In our Modern Ranch Reno we have three different bathrooms. We have the kids bathroom, we have this half bathroom by the office, and we have the master bathroom. We have spent a good amount of our budget throughout the house and on other projects that have had more priority at this time. But I was tired of looking at my plain bathroom and wanting to change up a few things to make it a little bit more fun and a little bit more my style. For under $50 I was able to make over our half bathroom flooring and it changed everything!! I’m really excited to share all the details with you. Here is a little sneak peek. Before I share more details I wanted to show you what the bathroom looked like when we moved in. This bathroom had a nasty pull chain toilet and green wood paneling. The bathroom vanity was in decent shape but it was an orangey wood color and I didn’t love the fact that you really noticed the white bowl. BEFORE: We removed…

  • Prescott View Home Reno: Master Bedroom Makeover

    This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Stearns & Foster. The opinions and text are all mine for my Master Bedroom Makeover Hello friends! I’m so excited to be sharing my master bedroom makeover reveal with you today! It’s a colorful mix of traditional, modern and a splash of farmhouse and I absolutely l love it! Last week I shared my plan for refreshing the space!   Let’s chat mattresses for a sec. Guys, no matter how much work, time, energy, etc you put into your space, the most important thing about designing a space is that it functions for you to the best of you and the room’s ability. Have you ever been to a beautiful hotel but the bed was so uncomfortable you couldn’t sleep? Maybe you visited a restaurant that had a great atmosphere and looked great but the food was awful? PRIORITIES people. If your master bedroom is not a place you can completely relax and recover from your day’s work, what’s the point? Why design a beautiful space unless it does…

    Prescott View Home Reno: Master Bedroom Before

    This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Stearns & Foster. The opinions and text are all mine. Prescott View Home Reno: Master Bedroom Before & Plans I am finally getting around to sharing the plans for my master bedroom! It’s pretty much the last space in the house I haven’t shown much of. I have changed my entire design for this space like 3 times over the last year and I am happy to say I’ve finally figured out what I want! Yeah… it only took a year! Here is my Master Bedroom Before the new makeover. Here’s where my Master Bedroom Before looks like move-in day last June. I brought the furniture from our old house and it sat like that for a long time. Months later I painted all the trim and crown moulding black and decided I liked a more moody vibe. Then I changed my mind. Again. I repainted it all white and knew I needed a brighter, more airy looking space. I installed shiplap, grabbed some new mirrors, a rug, lamps and some…

  • Modern Ranch Reno: Our Black and White Exterior Paint

    Paint can make or break a house. I am so grateful that we have been able to partner with Behr Paint on one the biggest changes that we have made on our house. Exterior Paint. When we first drove by our house when it was up for sale it had been listed for 6 months no one had lived there for awhile and everything was totally over grown and out of control. The outside was a mess. The house looked totally outdated and it was far from looking like the modern house that we had been looking for. We searched forever for a house to buy and we REALLY REALLY wanted to stay in the same neighborhood that we were already in. We drove by this one a million times and with a little bit of imagination we started to look at this house differently. Cleaning up the landscape with be a game changer and more importantly paint the house would change everything about the house that I hated. When I say that paint is life changing I mean just…

  • Surprise Teen Girl’s Bedroom Makeover

    Today’s teen girl’s room makeover is very, very special to me and near and dear to my heart. Several months ago, I found out that one of my kid’s favorite babysitters, Karli (a teenager we met at church) was soon to undergo major surgery from her pectus excavatum. Pectus excavatum is a congenital disorder which causes the chest to have a sunken or “caved in” appearance. It is the most common congenital chest wall abnormality in children. Often times, this issue is only cosmetic but with our sweet friend Karli, her chest was caving in and pressing on her heart, causing her a number of issues. Karli recently had her surgery to have this corrected, which is a crazy, extensive surgery and has caused her an incredible amount of pain. About a month before her surgery, her mother and I had the idea to surprise her with a bedroom makeover while she was in the hospital having surgery so she would have a special place to come home to recover and hopefully, lift her spirits a bit at this tremendously difficult time…

  • Prescott View Home Reno: Master Bathroom Reveal

    This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Floor & Decor. The opinions and text are all mine. Friends, I am so beyond excited and elated to finally reveal my master bathroom renovation with you! For the last, roughly, two months, I have put every extra moment of my time and 110% of my energy into renovating this space. When we moved in, it was a very small bathroom that was separated by a wall to our, also small, walk-in closet. The previous space didn’t make the best use of the square footage available. We lost our walk-in closet but we still have another reach-in closet in our room that is plenty of storage space for my husband and I. You can check out all of the before pictures and get an idea of the previous layout in this post. Here is my inspiration board for the space! We partnered with one of our all-time favorite stores, Floor & Decor for all of the tile in this space. They have THE BEST in-stock selection and rock bottom…
