  • Prescott View Home Reno: Master Bedroom Before & Plans

    This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Stearns & Foster. The opinions and text are all mine. 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’s where the room started on 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 throw pillows. I was LOVING the direction I was headed but I knew I wasn’t quite there. To…

  • 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…

  • Prescott View Home Reno: How to install wallpaper

    Hello friends! Today I’m sharing a tutorial on how to install wallpaper! I have only done this a couple times but I’ve compiled my tips on how to install wallpaper and found what I believe to be the easiest way. I am not a professional in the wallpaper department but I got professional results with the method I used for how to hang wallpaper! Disclaimer: I had zero desire and zero energy to load up my four kids and go buy fancy wallpapering supplies so I’ll show you what basic DIY supplies I used that worked 100% fine. I chose this Kumo Wallpaper from Anthropologie. I used 2 rolls for my 8×13′ wall making my project $156. TOTALLY worth it!!! I loved that it has the trendy shibori look but a little different. First, begin with a clean, dry and smooth (or semi smooth) wall. I have slightly textured walls and I thought about smoothing them out but since they’re smooth to the touch and its a matte paper, I decided to leave them. If you have a metallic paper or…

  • Prescott View Home Reno: Shared Space Room Makeover

    Hello friends! I’m so excited to share my boys’ new space with you! A couple months ago, my kids started begging to sleep together. I have 4 little boys and 2 of them shared a room with a twin bed and the other two shared a room with two twin beds (See last space/astronaut bedroom makeover here). After a lot 0f thought and several “trial nights” we decided we’d let them all share a room. This was the BEST decision ever for our kids! They have the BEST time together, they love their room and I know they’ll have countless late nights making memories together. Side note: Today Parker asked me if we can switch it to a Skylanders room and sorry bud, not gonna happen. lol! I measured the longest wall in the room and literally went over every possible situation for squeezing 4 beds into the room. I thought about building my own and shopped every single possible store for the right beds. A couple must-haves included: must be able to fit two sets of beds long-ways on…

    Prescott View Home Reno: Laundry Room Makoever

    This post is sponsored by Persil®. All ideas and opinions are our own, always! I am so excited to finally reveal my laundry room makeover. I have had it semi-done for months but I finally put the finishing touches on. Let’s journey back to where we began… This makeover was relatively easy for the result! Like a little effort went a really long way! First, I painted the walls… right over the wallpaper! We plan to shiplap this room soon so I didn’t want to go through the trouble of removing the wallpaper. I sanded the seams and tears in the wallpaper and painted it all a super light grey (almost white!) The paint color is Behr Silver Dust. I added shaker style trim to the cabinets and painted them white. I will eventually replace them with new cabinets that go up to the ceiling but these work great for now! I removed the old vinyl floors and replaced them with my favorite Thirties Vintage Tile. Its porcelain that looks like hand painted cement tile but for a fraction of the…

  • Prescott View Home Reno: Garage Turned Office Makeover

    Hi friends! I am so excited to reveal my office space with you today! FINALLY! I have rearranged it approximately 1.2 million times trying to find the perfect layout! This space is my 3rd car garage converted into a fully functioning home office. We removed the garage door motor and track, bolted the garage door shut then we insulated it, put down flooring and installed new lighting. I mainly run my vinyl decal business out of this space and do blog work from my in-home office. Here’s what it looked like before. After we put up the wall… Then I installed these Quick Step Floors that I LOVE! I love the white wash look and they’re my fave! Next, I installed these floor to ceiling cabinets for storage. These things hold a TON of stuff!!! I keep all my vinyl, my machines, shipping materials and inventory in them. They are insanely helpful and I love the look of them. They’re from the PAX collection at Ikea. The lights are the Kirch 4-light foyer pendants from Wayfair! The show stopper of…

    Spring Bonus Room Refresh with Keurig®

    This post was created in partnership with Keurig Green Mountain®. All opinions, images, and ideas are my own. Since we chatted last, I have got the Spring Refresh/Spring Cleaning bug and decided to do a few room swaps in our home. We switched my four kiddos into one bedroom and added a playroom. Since we added the playroom, we were able to work the media room into that playroom which freed up this space next to our dining room for an in-home office. It is easily my favorite space to spend time and work in the morning. I love to get my kiddos off to school and enjoy my time sorting through emails and working on our blog in this sunny space. One of my favorite things about this space is my little beverage station. During the Spring, my allergies are literally out of control and I’m constantly dealing with sniffles and an itchy throat. I have been enjoying some herbal teas to help soothe my constant sore throat and my new Keurig® K250 Brewing System has made it so easy and…

  • Prescott View Home Reno: Master Bathroom before

    I’ve been seriously knee deep in insane projects. I have officially taken on the BIGGEST project of my life and its taking every second of my extra time. No complaints here! I’m so excited to do it but man alive, it’s SO much work! I wanted to blog about the process in real-time because I realized when I wait too long, I tend to overlook some of the details which  is not helpful to anyone! ha! A little background… our master bathroom is connected to our bedroom and it is super small. One sink, toilet and a small-ish shower. No storage. ONE sink (not cool!) and NO BATHTUB!!! The first thing I wanted to change about our home was to add a bathtub. Turns out, we needed to fully remodel to accommodate that teeny tiny request of mine. *wink* If you look from our master bedroom, there was an octagon arch walkway (not a door) to the bathroom and very small walk in closet. Actually, it wasn’t tiny but it was totally not functional for the amount of square footage…

    Prescott View Home Reno: DIY Kitchen Island

    Hello friends! I’m finally sharing my DIY kitchen island with you today! It’s been done for a few months but I wanted it to be perfect (which it’s not) before I shared it. LOL! If you’ve been wanting to build a DIY Kitchen Island but not sure how or think it will be too hard, it’s not! I promise ANYONE can build this. Anyone. First I taped off a general area of where I wanted it and got rough estimates and headed to the Home Depot. I got these three boxes and arranged them in the aisle. It was literally the perfect size! I wanted a lot of drawers and these three were so perfect, in stock and inexpensive! I got home and put them in place. Somehow I carried them each from my car on my own and felt like superwoman. I put 2×4″ screwed into the wooden subfloor and once it was level, I screwed the cabinet bases into the 2×4. Next, I used shims to make the boxes square. After everything was square and solid, I used…

    Prescott View Home Reno: DIY Kitchen Remodel Reveal

    The day has finally come!! It’s reveal day for my DIY Kitchen Remodel! Guys, literally blood, sweat, frustrated tears, curse words, changed minds, tears of joy (for real!) happened during this DIY kitchen remodel. I am SO dang proud of this space, not in like a braggy way but I’m just so glad all of the crazy ideas actually worked and that it’s finally done! I legit DIYed everything except the countertops, BY MYSELF! My hubby did help with the floors and because it takes approximately 1 million years to lay flooring alone but I’m so thrilled with the outcome of our hard work! Oh! My husband and his brother (our go-to electrician!) installed my lights too! I can’t take credit for that! LOL! Before we get on with the DIY Kitchen Remodel REVEAL here’s a refresher of the “before”. Since we moved in, I wanted a new layout/new cabinets but after getting quoted $7,000-10,000 for new cabinets,  I decided to wait on them. One night, laying in bed brainstorming (happens often!) I thought of a genius idea of rearranging the existing cabinets…
