  • Mallory’s Classic Colonial: Exterior Brick Reveal

    This post is sponsored by Behr Paint. 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 Interior/Exterior Masonry, Stucco and 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…

  • How to upgrade Curb Appeal in just one weekend

    This post is sponsored by Behr Paint Company. As always, all opinions are my own. We have waited months to be able to paint the exterior of our home. We have partnered with Behr Paint and we are so excited to show you the process. We have an HOA in our neighborhood so the planning stage took a while. We had to “pitch” our ideas to the HOA to get approved before we could move forward with the paint project. Thankfully, the bones of the house were exactly what we wanted. I fell in love with the symmetry, texture of the brick and overall shape of the house. One thing I didn’t love was the size and color of the red bricks that are more like commercial block. We partnered with Behr for the Red, White and Behr Sweepstakes and we knew it was the perfect time to update the curb appeal of our new home and take it one step closer to being our dream home. First things first, we removed the awnings and gave the house a good…

  • Mallory’s Classic Colonial: LifeProof Carpet

    This post is sponsored by The Home Depot. All opinions are our own, as always. Hi friends! Just popping in to update you on the LifeProof carpet in our new house! We partnered with The Home Depot on this project and it was the best decision ever. LifeProof Carpet For our family room and kids bedrooms we chose LifeProof carpet and the style is Briarmoor II. The color is (21) Flintstone. We upgraded our carpet pad to a 1/2″ pad and it made it extremely squishy and comfortable. How to order carpet from Home Depot Take rough measurements of the space you want to have carpet installed. Schedule a measure. You can do this online or in-store. A professional will come to your home to evaluate your site, verify measurements and determine any special requirements. Visit your local Home Depot or shop online to pick out your carpet and schedule installation. The LifeProof carpet has been the perfect solution to our 5 rambunctious boys that want to play comfortably on the floor. Hope over to The Home Depot blog (here)…

  • Household Closet Organization and Labels

    I can’t even tell you how many times a day I get asked for things. It usually go something like this, “Have you seen my dance shoes?” ” Have you seen my backpack?” “Do we have any Band-Aids?” “Do you know where the batteries are?” Can you relate?? If you can then I want to share one thing that has helped with so many of those questions. It’s getting organized and labeling EVERYTHING!! My Household closet BEFORE: Step 1: Clear everything out Here is the AFTER: We used black vinyl and a Silhouette Machine to cut out these cute random dots so that we could add a bit of character to this closet. It was really easy to apply and was really quick. If you don’t have a vinyl cutter machine you can use scissors and cut your own dots. Label all the things! It makes it so much easier for everyone if everything has a home and everything is labeled. We have made this even easier for you to create your household closet or cabinet by making a set…

  • Mallory’s Classic Colonial: Dining Room Makeover

    I’m so excited to be sharing some actual progress with you guys on the house. This dining room is literally visible from most areas of our house and was a little bit of a challenge for me to make sure that all walkways are clear, the furniture felt appropriately sized and things didn’t feel too blocked off. You literally have to be able to walk around the entire table because it’s in the middle of the whole house. We opened up some pocket doors that lead to our living room and took out a wall that was in between our dining room and our kitchen. The wall didn’t look structural then ended up needing a beam and also caused a minor A/C reroute. We had our new floors installed (you can read about the flooring in our house here), painted the walls Behr Frost (a cool white), installed baseboards, new electrical outlets and switches and finally a new light fixture. I love the boldness of the black and white with the traditional furniture and architecture. I want our home to…

  • Mallory’s Classic Colonial Flooring Sources

    It feels so freaking awesome to finally be posting about the new house!! I’ve finally chosen the flooring for most of our house and most of it is installed now! Yahoo! Instead of answering a ton of emails and direct messages on social media, I thought I’d write down everything you need to know or may be curious about! Hardwood Floors For the main flooring throughout out house, we chose engineered hardwood floors. Hardwood floors have come a long way in regards to durability and there are more affordable options on the market than ever before. We chose European White Oak Wide Plank floors. They have a micro-beveled edge and we used the glue-down installation method. You can read all about the exact flooring and find a retailer on Garrison’s website here. Carpet We chose to do carpet in our kids bedrooms, guest room and family media room. I choose the Lifeproof Carpet from the mothership, Home Depot. I used a 1/2″ thick pad and every single person that walks on the carpet comments on how soft and comfortable it…

  • Boys Room Idea- Adventure Room

    This post is sponsored by Behr Paint. All thoughts and opinions are our own. Coming up with ideas little boy’s room can be a bit tricky! Especially if you little boy is too old for a nursery but is still a bit too young for pre-teen and teenager room. When they are still young, I like to either come up with a cool theme for the room and/or come up with a unique color palette. Paint makes all the difference & upcoming Behr Color Clinic Paint is by far the best way to transform a space. We are so excited to be partnered with Behr Paint and talking more about the Behr Color Clinic on this project. We love Behr and we have used their paint on so many different projects. Like my hallway, the exterior of my house, my painted playhouse, my master bedroom accent wall and so many more! I am excited to go into the detail of this room but before I do, mark your calendars for May 17, 2019 at 9am PST because we will chatting…

  • Installing Bamboo Flooring

    This post is sponsored by the Home Depot but all opinions are my own. I recently replaced the carpet in my girls room with this Bamboo Click Lock flooring from the Home Depot in the light brown color. We are just loving this flooring so much. It was really easy to install. We were able to do all of it in one weekend. My kids room had carpet in them when we bought the house. The carpet was not in terrible shape when we moved in but after two and a half years of my kids wear and tear the carpet was needing to be replaced. I wanted something easy to install, affordable, and also good for kids. I really do think that the Bamboo Flooring was a great choice. Installing the Flooring When it came to actually removing the old carpet and doing the prep work for the floor and installing the Bamboo flooring from Home Depot that only took a day. We did the finishing touches with installing the quarter round the next day. I can’t even believe how easy it was to…

  • Modern Ranch House: Formal Living Room

    My formal living room has changed several times since we moved into this house. If you have seen the before pictures of my house then you have seen that this front room space has been changed quite a bit since we bought the house. But so you can get an idea of just the space here are some of the before pictures.  The Formal Living Room Before Our formal living room was the room right off of the entryway. It originally had a wall that is now a way more open space to the family room. It also had a step down and you can see all about that HERE. Up until recently I had the formal living room right when you walk in the entryway still and it connected with the family room. My only conflict I had every once in while was I didn’t necessarily love the sofa backing up another sofa in the family room. After the kitchen remodel which you can see HERE I really wanted to hang out space that connected to the kitchen so…
