  • Mallory’s Classic Colonial: Living Room Reveal

    This little living room has quickly become one of my favorite spaces to lounge in. I can see a full view of most of the house and I love the sunshine pouring in from the new window. Quick backstory: We bought the house in March 2019 and on day one, removed the wall separating the kitchen and dining room which resulted in removing the double ovens in that wall. We turned the remaining kitchen into a more updated, livable space for our family until we had the wild idea to relocate the kitchen altogether to another area of the home. This worked fine for a few months until we moved the kitchen but then it left us with two kitchens so we had to remove the old one, for obvious reasons. haha! We fixed the plumbing and electrical but were left with a window that was too small for the space since it no longer had a sink beneath it. My plans of turning that window into doors went out the window (pun intended) when we opened the wall to…

  • How to Clean Hardwood Floors

    Learning how to clean your hardwood floors doesn’t have to be intimidating! I remember when my floors were first installed….I was actually really nervous to clean them for the first time!

  • Mallory’s Classic Colonial: Breakfast Nook Makeover

    I used to spend little to no time in this space before I did this very bold and brave (for me!) makeover in our breakfast nook. If you’ve been around for a while, you know I LOVE navy blue so I went all out navy in this space. When we bought this home, this space was totally neglected and more of a passageway than a room. When we removed the old kitchen nearby, I knew this space could be the perfect breakfast nook off of our new kitchen! We replaced the floors and painted everything white for a temporary fix. A while later, I borrowed the light fixture for our new laundry room makeover which left this space totally neglected and empty. Nothing a little paint and decor couldn’t fix.
