DIY MAGNETIC CHALKBOARD

Growing up, my mom had a small chalkboard that sat on the kitchen counter next to the coffee maker. She’d always write little messages for me and my brother – like encouraging words on math test days (Both me and my brother are artsy, and therefore, bad at math.) and the annual birthday and Christmas countdowns. Therein lies my love of chalkboards. For the past few months, Greg and I’ve been keeping an eye out for something to turn into…

So, this week we… Patiently waited for the new, massively huge farmhouse sink Installed a new vanity in the half bath (more…

WRECKING THE WALLS + DECKING THE HALLS

We’re back with another laundry room update! During the fall/winter, the laundry room is normally the coldest room in the house. This isn’t good when you’ve got stain on the floors that’s trying to dry. Unfortunately, with it being so cold outside over the past few days, this delayed the process a bit. So we cranked up the heat and played the waiting game. Finally, yesterday the first coat of polyurethane was able to be put down. As of this…
