    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…

  • Prescott View Home Reno: How to add legs to Ikea couches

    Ever wondered how to add legs to ikea couches? …or pretty much any couches or any furniture?  Since I bought these Ikea KIVIK sofas (mine are Isunda Gray but I’m not sure if they have that color anymore…), I wanted to add legs to them to raise them up higher. In our last house, the low height didn’t bother me but for whatever reason, they felt so bottom heavy and too low for this space. Today I’ll show you a super easy way to add legs to ikea couches! I loved the set up we had in the space but it really felt heavy and the couches felt so bulky. I found these legs on Amazon and after inspecting the bottom of the couches, I found that it’d be super easy to raise them up and make them look a bit lighter in this space. First, I removed the legs that came with the sofa. Next, we install these industrial strength furniture brackets and screwed them over the existing hole, lining up the hole where the bolt of the leg screws…

  • Prescott View Home Reno: Living Room Makeover

    Hey friends! I’m back today to share our living room makeover with you! Yesterday I shared our fireplace remodel and since it’s directly connected to the fireplace, I thought it would be fitting to share my living room makeover today! Okaaaaay, so here is our “move in day” version of our living room. It’s incredible to me how much I loved this sofa and rug in our old house but how it totally didn’t work for me in this house! The sofas seemed too low and the rug was so not the look or color I wanted in here. Out with the old… Savannah and I painted the walls (Behr – Silver Polish, which is a suuuuuper light, almost white grey with a cool undertone) and it helped make it feel more fresh. I got this new rug (Rugs USA) and the sofas from Living Spaces and loved where it was going then… nothing. Like, it’s fine but I wasn’t feeling it. I loved the sofas but my husband hated that they were velvet. Hate is a strong word but totally appropriate…

  • Prescott View Home Reno: Fireplace Remodel

    The renovation continues! We are chipping away at the renovation of my house (Follow along using #mallorysprescottviewhome on Instagram and Facebook!) and today we’re tackling the fireplace remodel. When we moved in, it was solid brick painted a dark brown/taupe color with a black mantel. I knew that I wanted to do a fireplace remodel since it would be a nightmare or dang near impossible to remove the layers of paint to expose the brick and I didn’t really want painted brick in this home. Right when we moved in, Savannah and I painted it white and it definitely brightened it up a bit! Once we removed the wall, I removed all of the brick using a hammer drill (starting around $50 to rent or buy from Home Depot) and it was shockingly fun! Once the brick was removed, I painted the brass pieces on the fireplace with High Heat Spray Paint.  After it was painted, I removed the metal straps that were attached to the wall and sanded down the wall to remove any debris and left over mortar from the…

  • Prescott View Home Reno: That one time I opened a huge can of worms and removed a wall in our house

    Friends! Today, I’m going to share the single most life-changing thing we did to renovate our house. It was literally THE first thing I wanted to change when we bought our house back in June. I walked in for the first time and right away mentioned to my husband and realtor that we needed to remove that wall if we bought it. I desperately wanted an open floor plan and this home was begging to be opened up! Before we did this, I had NO idea how to remove a wall but I couldn’t wait to do it! You know when you watch Chip & Jo on #demoday and you just want to take our all your aggression on some drywall? Yep. That was me! This change would cause a huge ripple effect of changes for our home’s layout. If we remove the wall, we might as well redo the fireplace. We’ll also have to replace the flooring (already part of the plan) but if we are going to change the flooring, we have to rearrange the cabinets in the…

  • Prescott View Home Reno: DIY Pantry Build and Reveal

    Today’s post  DIY Pantry Build is a favorite of mine for several reasons! 1. It added SO much function to our kitchen and our lives and 2. I LOVE how organized and how pretty it is! When we moved into our home this summer, there was no pantry. Whaaaat?! Not gonna fly. I knew this when we bought it, obviously and had grand plans of making my dream pantry.   My old house had the most incredible pantry and is still a favorite on the blog and on Pinterest. Side story: I met this girl the other night and she was asking about our home renovation since she is doing one too. Then, I pulled up a photo of my kitchen progress and she saw my glass jars from my previous pantry makeover and explained that she saw and saved the same jars in a pantry on Houzz. I mentioned it could’ve been my last home and she pulled up a screenshot on her phone and it was my house! What!?! So crazy! It was quite the conversation piece since we…
