  • DIY Antiqued Halloween Mirror and Halloween Mantel

    This post is sponsored by Krylon. All ideas and opinions are our own, always!  Halloween is just around the corner and I’m so excited for an evening full of spooks and sweets! For this year’s Halloween decor, we are switching things up a bit and using purple as our feature color! We mad a really fun DIY Antiqued Spooky Mirror and spray painted some pumpkins with some of our favorite Krylon products. First, we made the DIY Antiqued Spooky Mirror by using a framed mirror and distressing the glass, painting the frame and adding a Halloween quote with vinyl lettering. DIY Antiqued Spooky Mirror Supplies: Mirror Paint Thinner Metal Putty Knife Protective equipment (rubber gloves, mask, protective glasses) Muriatic Acid Plastic Funnel Plastic Spray Bottle Painter’s Tape Krylon ColorMaster Gloss Purple Vinyl Lettering First, we removed the cardboard backing to expose the back of the glass. Next, we used paint thinner and a paint brush to cover the entire back of the glass with paint thinner. This removes the silver paint finish on the back of the glass. Make sure you…

Many of you saw our sneak peek on Instagram stories and you were excited about it too which makes us EVEN MORE excited!

We are so excited to celebrate 50 years with them!

  • 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…

  • 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. So I’m saying goodbye. 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…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • Our closet makeovers with The Container Store and HGTV Magazine

    Our closet makeovers with The Container Store and HGTV Magazine We’re so excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with The Container Store to give some of our closet makeovers! This was SUCH fantastic timing because our closets were a mess. I am an organizing junkie but after moving our 4 boys into one bedroom, the clothing and organizing situation was a bit out of control. Before The Container Store came to the rescue, we had dressers stacked up on each other in this pink wallpapered closet. Not ideal for my little boys. Oh, we also had half of the clothes in the playroom. Again, not ideal. The day before the amazing installer from The Container Store came to my house, we removed the pink wallpaper and repainted the closet to match the boys’ bedroom. We also removed the doors and will eventually install French doors to the space but now that the closet makeovers looks great, I’m not in a hurry to hide it with doors. The Container Store installed the elfa Custom Closet system for my boys. I am literally shocked…

    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…

  • When plans change.

    A few weeks ago, a friend of mine texted me about a fixer upper potential dream home she’d had her eye on for several months. Her and her husband (who happen to be my realtors when I moved to Prescott) decided to put an offer on their dream fixer upper. This wasn’t new info for me as we’d discussed the idea and even went to look at the house a couple times. You know how if you love something let it go and if it comes back, it’s meant to be. That was kind of her situation with this house. Now where do I come in…? Well this friend of mine currently lives in a home that happens to be my dream fixer upper. Now, I use the term fixer upper very loosely because her house is beautiful but still unfinished. I always joked with them that if they ever sold their house, I get first dibs. Turns out, they took me semi-seriously and asked if I was interested as soon as they knew they were probably moving. I was in. I…

  • 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…
