Hey everyone! I made a few small updates to our front living room that I’ve shared on Instagram, but I thought I would give you an overall peek at how far it’s come! Just to recap, our old home has two living rooms: one in the front right by the entry, and one in the […]

New Living Room Chairs


Back in September, I painted the vinyl flooring in our kitchen after staring at the ugly green fake tile for 6 months. I knew I couldn’t hate my floors anymore than I already did, so I got a can of Valspar’s porch and floor paint and went to town. So how have they held up? […]

How Did Our Painted Vinyl Floors Hold Up?


November 22, 2016

Halfway through November and it is FINALLY feeling like fall here in Columbia, SC. Our yard is blanketed in pretty red leaves, and we finally had to turn the heater on! My husband Madison is just happy that he doesn’t sweat every time I ask him to help me do a project πŸ™‚ We finished […]

Earthy Living Room Updates


via Look. It can be a little weird/scary to share my home with you on here sometimes. At first I thought it was because I was worried about what you think, but really it’s because half the time I look back at my own posts and see that I’ve changed my mind. I already shared […]

Why “Home” Is A Worthy Cause

The last time they stayed at our house was the night Madison and I got married, and my poor brother ended up staying in our Florida room (not our guest […]

Guest Bedroom Before/Progress

Our linoleum is ugly. I don’t think I’m offending anyone here, because I doubt there’s anyone who would think it looked decent. I sat in my living room and looked into this view. I had zero inspiration to update my kitchen because I honestly felt overwhelmed by a lot of projects it needed. It is […]

I Painted Our Vinyl Kitchen Floor


I restyle my mantel all the time. I come up with an idea for a project and in 5 minutes I’ve got the paint can open. Sometimes I step back and finally see the perfect way to arrange the furniture for the seventh time. The decorating mood just hits and that’s when I do the best […]

When the decorating mood hits.

Ecclesiastes 5:17 says “Throughout their lives, they live under a cloud – frustrated, discouraged, and angry.” Who lives like this? Those who never have enough. Always searching for more possessions, more wealth. That’s been me, and probs you too. This attitude pops up in me often, and I hate it. I feel frustrated with my […]

“…frustrated, discouraged, and angry.”


If you read my last post, you saw my mint bathroom in all of its dysfunctional glory. Today I wanted to show you a few bathrooms I have been using as inspiration in case you were confused as to why I wanted to keep anything in that bathroom as-is. It’s okay. Your eyes were not […]
