With a few simple tools and cleaning products, you too can discover the best way to clean grout in your home. With our backyard project over the spring and summer, things have been a little dusty inside and my grout seems to have absorbed a lot of the dust and dirt from the backyard.

  • Modern Ranch House : Master Bedroom-How to Paint a Wooden Accent Wall with BEHRÂŽ’s Wanderlust Paint

    I am really excited to reveal my master bedroom to all of you. With 2017 just starting and the holidays over I am finally ready to tackle some projects around the new house and my master bedroom was first on the list. For me it is important to have my bedroom done first because I need a place to retreat to when things are crazy with a remodel. I bought my bed a few months ago after I sold my old white bed and my new gold brass bed was a big statement piece. I loved my bed from the moment I found it but I struggled with the rest of the room until I found the perfect paint color for an accent wall, it is called Wanderlust by BEHRÂŽ. I loved it because has a lot of depth and it’s such a rich color. Wanderlust  is part of the BEHR 2017 Color Trends collection.  There are so many awesome colors in the 2017 collection so be sure to go and check them out. We have always loved color in our homes and we…

  • Prescott View Home Reno: Bonus Room Makeover

    I’m so excited about today’s post! We’re gonna chat about our Bonus Room. I think people call it a “flex” room? Yeah, flex room. This room was used by the previous owners for a family/tv room! They had comfy sofas and a little desk and office space in here. I wracked my brain for how to use this space best for our family! Since I decided to frame in a pantry (more on that later) I used the space where the previous owners had their dining table… which meant, this needed to be a dining room or… part dining room. It’s awfully long to use only for a dining room and perhaps as our family grows, we will use it primarily for dining someday. For now, it’s our flex room that is our kiddos tv room + dining room. Weird right? Well, it TOTALLY works wonders for us! It was one of the reasons I fell in love with the house (the windows!!!) and the fact that it had so many possibilities! First, I removed the carpet and installed new flooring. I…
