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.
We try really hard to keep our home minimal, but still cozy, and accumulating decor that can only be used for a few weeks of the year doesn’t seem very intentional. Here are some quick and easy ways to make your home feel like fall without buying plastic pumpkins!
I was so busy this summer that I never had the chance to buy flowers for our front porch, so with fall just around the corner, I’m loving the excuse to deck out the house (in reality, just the front porch) in cozy fall goodness.
The laundry room is painted! That is as far as we have gotten over the past week and a half, but progress is progress, so I am celebrating. If you didn’t see our mudroom/laundry room before we get started, go look at those photos!
I have been putting off the mudroom since we moved in almost two years ago. It’s one of the only rooms in the house that hasn’t been touched what so ever. It’s dirty and grimy and even the light fixture is covered in cobwebs. I can’t believe I’m admitting that to the Internet. The good news, I started scrubbing it down today to prep for paint! I’m going with my tried and true Polar Bear White from Behr Pain.
Our house was built in 1888, and we don’t have a lot of overhead lighting. Because of that, we have lamps in almost every room! There is something so cozy about using lamps instead of overhead lighting.
I can’t believe the One Room Challenge reveal day is here. When I signed up as a guest participant, I failed to acknowledge the fact I would be traveling for two of the five weeks I did most most the work and product sourcing up front.
Well folks, here we are at week four and the room looks EXACTLY the same as it did last week. When my to-list is a mile long, home projects are the first to slide. That said, I found the perfect vintage lamp bases to create our DIY Edison bulb lamps to flank the mirror, and I also picked out prints for my empty picture frames. My sweet friend Colette is launching a print shop over at The Lipstick Lens and I can’t wait for you to see her work! I’m obsessed with the pair of prints we landed on.
Alright guys, it is week three of the One Room Challenge. If you missed week one or week two you can click to get caught up before diving into week three progress. It was a pretty slow week because I’m swamped at work. The pocketbook is also running quite dry as we approach our destination wedding.
Alright folks, we are one week into the One Room Challenge and our painting is almost complete! If you missed the week one post, you can read it here. You can also see what this room looked like a week ago! We are going for a cozy, Parisian parlor with an industrial twist. We went into the week thinking we would do a pink accent wall, and we came out of the week with a completely pink parlor. I wanted this from the beginning, but it took a little convincing for the husband.
