I can officially say I am done with both Scarlett’s big girl room and Jett’s nursery! I have been working on these rooms for months now and slowly but surely they are finished.
I don’t have definite “themes” for either kids rooms. I was more so inspired by things I found along the way. With that said, when I came across the most gorgeous 1920’s antique armoire at a local shop, I began to envision Scarlett’s room and the word Storybook kept coming to mind. This piece reminded me so much of one of my favorite stories, Beauty and the Beast. For the color scheme I wanted something soft and peaceful – so I carried over the blush pinks and grays from her nursery (even using some pieces from her nursery). Her room turned out exactly how I pictured and more and she loves spending time in there.
For Jett’s nursery I knew I wanted something that tied well into our home – fitting more into the DIY and outdoorsy feel. Being outdoors is something that is a very important part of our family and we wanted to bring that joy into his room. For his room I was inspired by the “Robin Hood” Matt shot a few months back. For that that don’t know what that is, it’s when you shoot an arrow directly into the back of another arrow.
When we came across wildlife photographer Luke Cruz, one of our favorite Instagramers – I knew his art needed to be displayed on the walls. Matt reached out to Luke and asked if we could get some photos to display on a nursery wall, he was so generous and sent some our way. The rest of the room just fell into place with each piece I came across.
Life is going to be chaos here shortly with a 2 year old and brand new baby. But I am so looking forward to it and hope their rooms will bring us all a little peace on those extremely rainy days (as everyone whose been there I’m sure can attest to).
I am so excited to share our newest house remodel, our kitchen! When we first bought our home, everything about it was what I had always envisioned, with the exception of our bright red 70’s themed kitchen! On the flip side, this was also very exciting because I knew we’d be able to remodel it exactly how we wanted and not feel guilty ripping out a newer kitchen. After hours of planning and fine tuning all of the small details, we finally pulled the trigger and began with the remodel. I could not be happier with how things turned out and feel very blessed to have our dream kitchen finalized.
What a relief, we are finally done with Scarlett’s nursery! There are a few small items we still need to purchase, such as the changing pad and baskets for the closet, but overall it’s finished. Our vision was to make her room feel apart of our home so we didn’t go completely crazy with a theme. However, if I had to describe the nursery, we were going for a clean chic – using grays, whites, and touches of blush pinks with fun patterns throughout. The bedding was the first thing we picked out, which I fell in love with, and it set the stage for the rest of the nursery. We did a lot of the projects on our own which helped cut costs and also made it more personal. We are extremely pleased with how everything turned out and are excited to share!

A couple weeks ago Matt and I had dinner with some friends at their new home. It is stunning, they have put so much time and effort into it and it really has paid off. Naturally this inspired me to get back at it with projects for our home. I have been pretty exhausted these last few months, going through first prego trimester, but finally have my energy back. So far, I have been doing little projects here and there for all rooms in the house, I have now decided to pick one room at a time. I chose to do a shelf I spotted awhile ago on Pinterest for our guest bathroom. This past Sunday I felt motivated and was able to check it off the ‘done’ list. Total this project cost me roughly $20!
Step 3: I found this awesome hook at an antique store for $5. I spray painted it and roughed it up a bit.
STEP 5: Stain shelf with desired color. Drill holes on each end and attach rope.
It’s been quite some time since I’ve posted anything. I have been crafting like crazy and it’s about time I share some of the stuff I’ve completed. I don’t know about you, but I absolutely LOVE fall. There is no better place to be than the PNW during Fall season. Leaves start changing, fog rolls in, fireplaces get lit, what’s not to love?! Well.. besides the torrential down pour when it rains. This is our first fall in our new house and I have been trying to get our house ‘fall’ prepped with decor. My latest project has been a ‘FALL’ sign I created with stuff I had around the house. The wood I found in our barn and I had the stain and paint lying around. It was extremely easy and took my no more than an hour! While I’d like to credit myself for this crafty idea, I found something similar on Pinterest and tweaked it a little.
Finally, our dining room is complete!! I can’t begin to explain how happy we are with the final outcome. It was well worth the hours and hours that were spent building it. A huge shout out to my amazing brother-in-law and lovely husband for constructing it, they did a beautiful job! I completed it with the sanding and staining and I will say the color turned out flawless and exactly how we imagined. Hopefully this will be a piece we have for many years to come.
