  • 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…

  • Modern Ranch Reno: Laundry Room – Part 2 Appliances

    This post is sponsored by The Home Depot but words and opinions are mine. When an appliance breaks it can be really stressful. It always seems to happen at the worse time. That is what happened when our washing machine broke. It was the middle of summer our kids were using a million towels because they were in and out of the pool so much and we had just returned from a family trip and we were leaving for a ten day camping trip. The timing was not the best. We had planned on doing a full laundry room renovation and when the washer went out we decided that now was a perfect time to start this big project. Before we even started the renovations my number one priority was getting a new washer and dryer. The center of any laundry room is a washer and dryer and getting the right appliance is always such a big decision. When we decided to redo our laundry room we decided that we were going to do two sets of washers and dryers.…

  • Modern Ranch Reno: Laundry Room Reno Part 1 DEMO

    One of the things that I loved about the Modern Ranch Reno was the Laundry Room. In our last house our Laundry Room shared a space with the door leading out the backyard and also the pantry. When our laundry was clean or dirty it really had not place to go which means it would end up every where. I was pumped that our new house had a real and separate Laundry Room. With that being said I also knew that it was going to need a face lift. The laundry room started out with plain tile, weird wallpaper, cabinets and sink. At first I loved the thought of a sink but after we lived with the sink for a while we decided that we could use the space better if we got rid of it. I would still love a sink in the garage someday or something but for now the sink had to go.  First thing we did was remove the upper cabinets. These were not great cabinets and outdated so we decided to replace them. Then we…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • DIY Spray Painted Barstools

      When I moved into my new house one of the things I fell in love with was this covered back patio. I loved that I had a little countertop just off of my kitchen window. I could just imagine feeding my kids out the kitchen window as they played outside. I wanted to do some fun DIY barstools and when I fell in love with this fabric I knew that the perfect accent color for the barstools would be ColorMaster® Paint + Primer in Sun Yellow by Krylon. I got these tired looking barstools from my neighbors next-door that were getting rid of them. I knew it would be a quick and easy fix to give them some new life. Some of the wood was rotting out from them and also the fabric just wasn’t my style. First I collected all of my products that I would need to complete the project I ordered this fabric online. It has really great green colors with a little bit of yellow through some of the leaves. I also got a few cans of Krylon’s…

  • Palm Springs Inspired Patio Decor

    In the last few weeks here in Arizona we have had the most beautiful weather. This is my favorite time of year and because the weather has been so amazing we want to spend all of our time outside. Our patio decor needed a bit of a refresh. We have a covered back patio that has been freshly painted and we have a little plain outdoor couch set. We wanted the patio area to have a bit more color since the house is now black and white and the patio furniture is very neutral. I wanted the patio to have a Palm Springs vibe to it. I think that is exactly what I think I achieved. This is what the space looked like before. I was looking for some great outdoor patio décor that had a pop of color and some fun patterns to add to our plain patio chairs. I found everything that would make my back patio come to life on Annieselke.com. The first thing I found was this amazing coral and white pattern rug. It’s called the…

  • Modern Ranch Reno: Master Bedroom Sofa

    My master bedroom has been kind of a challenge. It’s a big room but it is a very long room. I did an epic accent wall on one side of the room and I really wanted the other side to be just as epic. I had room for a little sitting area and thats exactly what I wanted. I wanted a show stopper piece and I knew Joybird would have exactly what I was looking for. The best thing about Joybird is that their pieces are custom made and you get to choose the style of furniture and then you get to select the the fabric and the stain of the legs if you are choosing something like a sofa. For the Master Bedroom sofa I choose the Holloway Sofa in the color Dunhill Turquoise. The color is a bit darker and matches the wall color even though since its right next to the window it is reading a bit more blue in pictures. This color and texture of the couch is just so good. It mirrors the accent wall in…
