Hello Hello! We're one-room-challenging it up over here! We've accepted the challenge to freshen up our nursery in six weeks, taking on various projects along the way and this week is ... WAINSCOTTING! Now we're no strangers to wainscotting over here! We actually put up shiplap wainscotting in our laundry room in case you'd like to take a look. We also put up wainscotting in our Master Bedroom and it turned out beautiful! And there's a detailed how-to on our blog too if you'r
Hello! The One Room Challenge is in full swing over here! We’re expecting a baby girl in a couple months so we entered our nursery. In case you’d like to get all caught up, here are the first two posts: One Room Challenge Week 1 | The Big Surprises One Room Challenge Week 2 | The Design Plan In our original nursery, we used the big 8 drawer Hemnes Dresser from IKEA and we love that dresser because it’s easy to keep organized with so many drawers and it’s a great height to do
Hello!! I am so excited that today is our design plan reveal day! It's always so much fun to show where we're headed with one of our projects and then we can really get down to business. If you haven't seen it yet, we revealed the gender on our blog last week! We are having a GIRL!! So when I first started planning the nursery, I was drawn to wallpapers that had floral/pink/coral/aqua/creams and I had fun dreaming about this new colour scheme! However, when it comes down to i
Hello hello!! Well we are bursting at the seams to share TWO BIG SURPRISES with you! It's that time of year again and since we had so much fun last time ... WE ARE PARTICIPATING IN THE ONE ROOM CHALLENGE AGAIN (if you missed it back in the spring here is the link to our reveal). I know, I know, the title of this blog post sort of gave surprise #1 away a bit! But nevertheless, we're excited to be getting creative with so many other participants again! OK... now surprise #2 ...
You know those times you start a project and say to yourself "I hope this goes as smoothly as planned"? Well this one went BETTER than planned. Of course I wasn't truly surprised, after all, part of the reason we wanted to rebuild this deck was because we knew how poorly this original deck was constructed. It took us 45 minutes to take this entire deck down. I know it wasn't a large deck but... 45 ... Minutes!? Thankfully, this has been the only part of our house that wasn't
Our old deck wasn't just the ugly deckling, it was the sole reason we never spent time in our back yard. So, we built a new back deck this summer and can't wait to show you all how it turned out! It's pretty and real cozy! Our back deck is also under a pergola that has a plastic covering on the roof so that the deck stays completely dry, which is nice! We really like that the back deck is protected from the weather a bit. As well, our back yard and deck are also quite shady,
Hello! Wallpaper seems to be all the rage these days. And it should be ... if it's done well, it can really elevate a room design. In case you missed it, we entered our laundry room in the Spring One Room Challenge this year. And I wanted to use this challenge as an opportunity to jump on the oh-so-beautiful wallpaper train! So I set out to find the perfect wallpaper and I will tell you something ... it was a lengthy search because there are only about a million wallpapers ou
We've been working on our laundry room as part of the One Room Challenge for the last six weeks so of course we are so happy to show you how this space turned out! It's time for the big reveal! I am going to warn you, you won't even recognize this space ... and that's a good thing because the original condition of this laundry room left a lot to be desired and it really only barely functioned for us since we've moved into the house. Before we jump right in, here's a before ph
Things are starting to take shape over here in our laundry room that we entered into the One Room Challenge. In case you didn't see the project plan, floor plan, and design plan from week one, here's the link so you can get all caught up! And here's the link to last week's blog post that was all about the behind the wall reno details - the manly stuff! Oooh ohhh aahhh ahhh! Opps. I meant for that to sound like manly grunts, but it really just sounds like monkey noises. haha!
We are rocking and rolling over here on our laundry room that we entered into the One Room Challenge. In case you didn't see the project plan, floor plan, and design plan from week one, here's the link so you can get all caught up! As soon as we hit 'Publish' on our post from last week, we were heading to the hardware store for supplies because we had a long to-do list for this first work week! As you may recall, we were starting with a laundry room that was plopped into a co
