When we bought our historic dream home, we knew we were in for some renovations. I had a hunch — and one day tugged on the corner of our bedroom’s shag carpet to discover the most beautiful original hardwoods hiding underneath! Today I’m sharing some common Hardwood Refinishing FAQs, sourced from readers and from the experts.
This “TV room” turned guest bedroom has been through so much, where to even begin? When we first walked through this house and were thinking about purchasing it, this room was being used as a “TV room.” The house has a formal living room, but it was clear this is the room the previous owners hung out in to catch up on their favorite shows.
When we first toured our home, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the living room. The green wallpaper, built-in bookshelves, limestone fireplace, and large windows fill this room with character. It’s one of the only rooms where we are leaving the wallpaper.
Baby Schroeder’s nursery is complete, and it was an absolute labor of love! The very first time we walked through this house, I knew I wanted this tiny, little room to be our nursery.
Sometimes I meticulously plan our renovations. And sometimes life just throws a re-design into my path. Or in the case of our master bedroom closet… life knocks the rails off the wall, dramatically collapses everything, and forces me to take stock.
With some additional wall cabinets, paint and peel and stick tiles, this space looks like a completely different room. It’s bright and fresh and all of sudden laundry doesn’t seem so bad anymore! HA kidding. But more importantly, this room is now super functional and full of concealed storage.
Better late than never! Our moody main bedroom makeover is finally here. This was an extremely challenging time to work on a house project. There were shipping delays, stores were closed and we froze spending in case we needed our savings. Not to mention, I was only living at our house for about 20% of the time.
This week was all about my beautiful, new Persian rug. As soon as I got it into the room it completely brought together the look and feel of this space! Rugs can be so tricky, so I wanted to offer a few tips and tricks to picking the perfect one for your space.
It’s week three of the One Room Challenge, and I have been getting so many questions about our bedding! We recently got a new mattress and replaced EVERYTHING. Now it feels like we are sleeping at a hotel every single night.
It’s week two of the One Room Challenge, and we are moving right along on our dark and moody master bedroom transformation. We have a big, blank wall behind our bed and I knew it needed a little extra something. I landed on the idea of DIY board and batten.
I knew I wanted to paint a room black in our new house, but I wasn’t sure which one. I landed on our bedroom and I’m so excited to watch this design come to life (I hope you are, too)!
This quick bedroom refresh happened in just 48 hours thanks to Nectar. My mom texted me these sad photos and asked if I could help spruce up one of her guest bedrooms and of course I said, “Yes!”
But… it took us listing our house on the market to do something about our bathroom. It’s by no means my dream bathroom, but it’s leaps and bounds better than before! Yes, everyone thought I was insane for wanting to paint my bathroom black, but I did it anyways. That’s just how I roll.
