  • Savannah’s Dining Room Refresh | Parisian Decor

    This post is sponsored by Walmart. As always, all opinions are our own. The dining and living room are the spaces you see right when you walk into my house. We did a full kitchen renovation earlier this year which you can see from the dining room and ever since, these rooms didn’t flow the way I wanted. Our kitchen is white, bright and airy, filled with white tones and marble and I wanted this to continue into the living and dining room. Dining Room CHAIRS – Safavieh Holloway Oval Side Chairs One simple way to update a dining room is to introduce new chairs! This was really the key element in brightening up the space. I am in love with these vintage chic chairs from Walmart! CURTAINS – Exclusive Home Velvet Heavyweight Hidden Tab Top Curtain These velvet pink curtains are so beautiful and since they come 2 panels per pack, it is a really affordable option for transforming your space. The light pink color and added texture from the velvet brings in the Parisian decor vibe I was going…

  • Coastal Bedroom Makeover

    This post is sponsored by Walmart. As always, all opinions are our own. Since moving into our new house, our youngest son’s room has been lacking the attention it deserved. I have been anxious to give his room a full makeover. I wanted to create a space that reflects his personality but will also grow with him as he gets older. These toddler years don’t last nearly long enough! Coastal / Beach Decor Bedroom Ideas Coastal decor is beach decor. A common misconception is that Coastal Style means nautical. Anchors and rope, nope. While those things certainly work, Coastal Style is so much more. It typically features earth tones, a variety of blue tones, usually jute and rope textures and that’s exactly what I wanted. We hoped to create a summer by the lake vibe and included a few animals to keep it feeling appropriate for a toddler but also a space that he can grow into. I love that we were able to create a cool, crisp, beachy feel while keeping it age appropriate. I am loving all of the coastal…

  • Back to School Prep Station

    This post is sponsored by Viva® Towels. All ideas and opinions are our own, always. It’s finally time for our kids to go back to school which is always a bittersweet moment. While I know we all thrive with more structure, I’ll miss those lazy summer days and laid-back attitude that summer brings. When school starts, we like to go through and completely purge and organize our pantry. Our kids prep breakfast and pack lunches in this space, so I’ll show you our system that helps us to ensure they aren’t packing a million sugary snacks. Plan & Prep First, we purge and toss everything that is expired. Then, I wipe out cabinets and drawers to get rid of any crumbs or dust so we can begin the school year with a fresh space. We use Viva® Multi-Surface Cloth™ for the entire job. They clean like cloth and easily trap and lock mess on many surfaces.  They are strong enough to tackle everything in here from wiping down the countertops, small appliances and any breakfast messes that inevitably happen in…

  • Room Spotlight: Pantry Organization 101

    Between Mallory and I, we have organized and decorated quite a few pantry spaces and are now experts in pantry organization. We both have large families and you know what that means – we tend to have a lot of food on hand. We have really mastered how to best approach a pantry in a way that is both functional and beautiful and we want to help you do the same! The first step is to always organize the space you are going to decorate. We went into detail in this post about our pantry organization process so I would review that post for details on that! But here are the products we used: White Bins White bins are a pantry must! We love these IKEA ones but we found very similar ones on Amazon! IKEA \\ AMAZON \\ CONTAINER STORE Glass Jars AMAZON \\ CONTAINER STORE Acrylic Cereal Boxes These aren’t just pretty – they really do keep your cereal so fresh! These are truly a must have in our opinion. AMAZON \\ CONTAINER STORE Label All the Things! We could never quite…

  • Easy Garage Door Upgrades

    I shared a post on Instagram about how I did easy garage door upgrades to up the curb appeal of our house and add a little more character to our home’s exterior. Magnetic Garage Door hardware The easiest upgrade to make your doors look custom is to install magnetic garage door hardware to your doors. I got mine on amazon and we LOVE them. They snap on with heavy duty magnets and stay put until you move them, even through rough weather. You can get creative as to where to put the straps and handles and play with it until you like the look. Install a flag Flags are really fun to fly on holidays but we love to fly our American flag year round. You can install a little angled bracket with a couple screws into trim on your house and fly your flag whenever you want! Buy a flag kit (including mounting hardware here: https://amzn.to/2T0uL97 Style it with faux plants I got two faux boxwood plants that came potted in black urns from At Home (unavailable online) but…

  • Savannah’s Modern Ranch House Flooring Sources

    Flooring is a major part of any room or space. Mallory recently shared all of her flooring sources that she now has in her new home which you can see HERE. I loved her post so much I wanted to shared my flooring source with you! When we bought this house, it had steps up and down throughout the main living area and we had to “fill in” the sunken areas and make everything level. You can watch the video on how we did that so you get an idea of where we began. Filling in a sunken living room White Tile When we bought the house we had not have much money to invest in the flooring but since we were pouring new concrete and removing old tile we had to replace the flooring. We had a few problems. The first problem was little budget we needed to be right around $2 a square foot. The second issue was we were adding new flooring that was going right against some original hardwood which means any hardwood “look a like”…

  • Mallory’s Classic Colonial: Exterior Brick Reveal

    This post is sponsored by Behr Paint Company. All ideas and opinions are my own, as always. This exterior painted brick project was been one of the most rewarding DIY projects I’ve taken on. This is my third time painting the exterior of a house myself so I’ve nailed down the process and I can’t wait to share all my tips and tricks for painting the exterior of a home. Exterior Brick Paint We used two coats of BEHR® Masonry, Stucco & Brick Paint – White in a Flat sheen for the brick. We used a large airless paint sprayer to get the job done and we were able to complete the entire front of the house in just one day. Red Front Door For the front door, we used a angled paint brush and BEHR ULTRA™ Exterior Paint. The color is “Red my Mind” in Semi Gloss. DIY Black Painted Shutters We hand painted our shutters with BEHR ULTRA – Exterior, Color: Carbon in Satin. You can read my tips for painting doors and shutters here. I can’t wait to complete the full…

  • Modern Ranch House: Adventure Room Sources

    I just finished my little boys room and it really did turn out so cute. I wanted to do a full post for you of all the sources of everything I used in the room. Paint The biggest change in this room is the wall color. You can read all about the details about the paint colors in this blog post HERE. Furniture Bed– I found the bunk bed on Walmart! I love that they are stackable and I love that the bottom bunk is a queen and the top bunk is a twin. You can find it HERE. Sofa– I actually got this sofa from Mallory. She got it from American Furniture Warehouse. The navy one is no longer available but here’s similar one. Dresser– This tone of dresser is perfect for this room. I was not wanting to spend a lot on the dresser and I found this one from Living Spaces and for it being under $200 it works just fine. But just so you know It’s not on metal tracks its on wood tracks so its…
