• Dining Room, Before & After

    I shared a few photos of our dining room with the wainscoting tutorial, but here’s a full before and after with sources, in case you are curious.

    Remember me talking about adding wainscoting to my dining room? I’m finally here to talk about how I did it, and the steps I took in case you want to try this adventure for yourself.

  • Current Crush: Minted.com Art

  • Master Bedroom Tour

    One of my favorite gifts I got for Christmas is a picture to go over our bed. I (not-so-subtly) hinted to my mom it was on my wishlist, and since she loves horses so much I knew she would love it too. Here’s a close-up of the print: I love it. It’s been a while

  • Brown Paper Packages

    Let me interrupt this very busy time of year to share a very cute and affordable way to wrap your presents. Cause as it is exactly one week away from Christmas Eve (!) chances are you have a closet full of gifts just waiting to be wrapped. I love brown paper packages tied up with

  • DIY Thanksgiving Banner

    This past Saturday we hosted a Friendsgiving with five couples and at the last minute decided to make a Thanksgiving banner. I really should have made this weeks ago because it took me just a half hour and it looks so cute on my mantle I almost don’t want to take it down in three
