  • Modern Ranch Reno Kitchen Remodel

    A kitchen remodel can be hard and can have challenges for sure. But now that it is over I can say it is all worth it! This post is sponsored by Home Depot but all opinions are my own. This kitchen remodel has been a labor of love that is for sure. When our kitchen flooded at beginning of November things got crazy really fast. When we bought the house we knew that we would have to do a kitchen remodel but we were not planning on it anytime soon. Especially since we had just finished our backyard. But when life gives you lemons and forces you to demo your kitchen right before Thanksgiving you go for it and boy did we! Our fridge leaked and we notice our hardwood popping up one afternoon. When we pulled the fridge out we then realized that the leak had been going on for awhile and it had ruined the cabinets from the fridge to the sink and also had ruined the wood all around. I will go into more details of the…

  • The Smart Home Products We Can’t Live Without

    This post is sponsored by Home Depot. All opinions are our own, always. What is a Smart Home? According to my Google search… smart home: noun a home equipped with lighting, heating, and electronic devices that can be controlled remotely by phone or computer. In 2018, we have added so many new Smart Home Features to our homes and we plan to continue doing so in 2019! Technology is absolutely amazing. When I was a kid, I remember my dad backing our horse trailer up with our suburban. At 8 years old, I remember sitting in our beast of a SUV while he backed it up, inch by inch and getting out every 30 seconds to see how close the trailer hitch was getting to the trailer. I remember sitting there telling him how there has to be some kind of camera to watch as he backed it up that could beep at you if you were close. Oh, how far we’ve come! Not only have vehicles come so very far, even our homes have improved significantly over the years…

  • How to store holiday decorations

    Christmas is just days away and sooner than later, it’s going to be time to take down Christmas decorations. Today I’m going to show you how I store holiday decorations.  This post is sponsored by At Home. All ideas and opinions are my own, always. We have family coming into town for Christmas (which we weren’t planning on so I am SO excited to have guests!) Since we have a lot more people coming than I had planned, the room will feel a bit cramped so I am going to rearrange the space a little bit to allow for more people and more gifts! Yay! This Christmas season, I removed one of my grey sofas and added our blue chairs into my living space so it felt more open and we could admire the trees. Now, with guests coming, we’re definitely going to need more seating so I need to bring the sofa back in. This made the room feel like too much “stuff” when I think about people and presents being added to the room.  I decided to move…

  • How to accessorize ANY space in your home

    Accessorizing your space is the easiest, most fun way to complete your space. Personally, this is the step that gets skipped most often. This is THE step that matters the most when pulling it all together and the SECRET to having a completed room. Here are some of our sure ways to finish off a space. Accessorizing your walls: Show your walls some love. You don’t want empty walls BUT you don’t want to fill all of them. My rule is that you need a mirror (which makes your space feel larger) and art in most every room. No mirrors in the kitchen probably but you know. Some of our favorite ways to do this include: gallery walls engineer prints using mirrors styled shelves Throw Pillows & Blankets Nearly every space can use a few throw pillows or blankets to make it feel cozy, unique and comfortable. Picking out these types of accessories really set the tone for the way you want the room to feel. This added “layer” of styling will define how the room feels. Rooms without throw…

  • Christmas Tree Village

    I have always loved Christmas villages. I did not have a place for them on display but then I came you with this really cute Christmas Tree Village. This post is sponsored by JOANN. All ideas and opinions are my own, always. I am so excited to show you how I took my love for a Christmas village that I found at the Joann store and turned it into a really awesome and unique Christmas tree. Christmas Tree Village   To create this Christmas Tree village I used mostly oversized countertop Christmas decor items. I love that when I use larger scale items I don’t have to buy nearly as much stuff. Larger items just take up so much room on the tree. Materials Here is the list of the materials and decor pieces that I found at the Joann store that I used for this Christmas tree.

  • Brooklyn and Bailey’s Dorm Room Makeover

    As you probably know since we’ve been blasting it on social media, we had the incredible opportunity to design and decorate YouTubers Brooklyn & Bailey’s dorm room for college. We have been friends with Brooklyn & Bailey’s mom, Mindy from Cute Girls Hairstyles (she’s a freaking rockstar!) and when she asked if we wanted to help with their dorm room at Baylor University, we obviously said YES! It was soooo much fun and we had the BEST time in Texas with them! Head over to their YouTube channel to see their video. Here are some of the before and after shots and links to all of the stuff we got to beautify their dorm. Amazing what a rugs, removable wallpaper and a whole lot of love and decor can do. The girls had a full apartment (and 2 other roommates) so we decorated their Living Room, Bathroom and Bedroom for Brooklyn and Bailey. Below you’ll find all the sources for everything we could find online!

  • DIY Kids Homework Station

    I am a Brand Ambassadör for IKEA U.S. This is a sponsored post. All opinions and product selections are our own. Always. We partnered with Ikea to create my kids homework station. My kids always have work on the computer and take some classes online (for fun!) so a homework station is a must. We needed a homework station and a place for my kids to play on the computers so they stop using mine. haha! We had this awkward nook in our basement right off of our family room and we wanted to do something useful and we knew our kids desperately needed a place to both study and play. How to create a homework station First, I painted the walls white. Then, I taped off 2/3 of the way down the wall and painted the bottom part with a rich navy blue, the same navy I’ve used throughout my house. My husband and I started by building this kid’s desk (tutorial coming soon!) and finished it off with some furnishings from Ikea. Buy or make a cool desk…

  • Hallway Makeover with Behr Paint

    A hallway can be a boring space but it does not have to be. When you are choosing a hallway paint color you can add so much personality to the space by doing something fun. This post is Sponsored by Behr and POPSUGAR My hallway when we moved in was boring, and out of date and it was also one of the first things you see when you walk into my house. A few things I did not like about the hallway was the dark doors. I felt like the doors made the hallway seem out of date and dark. I wanted the hallway to have more personality. In need of a facelift I knew it needs a facelift but I was not really sure what I wanted. At first I was thinking I was to do some more light and airy in the space. I started by painting my doors Ultra Pure White in Behr PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA® Interior and I knew I was off to a great start. My hallway leads to my kids room and I wanted to add a pop…
