Hooray! It’s cottage bathroom makeover reveal day! Here’s a quick look back at the inspiration and ‘before’ photos… …and here’s what we had fun coming up with over the past five months! We’ve been calling it the “bird bath”, and my favorite part is definitely the sky-themed wallpaper. I love the movement and sense of whimsy […]

Remember that wooden orchard ladder we had propped against the wall in the reading room in our old house? And remember that black wire basket we used in my Mom’s guest bedroom makeover a while back? Well, my Mom gave me the basket at one point or another (we’re both chronic switcher-uppers, ha!), and there’s this little […]

Half Bath Update – Barn Light

We’ve got light in our half bath again! If you’ve been reading our blog for a while, you’ll probably recognize the light fixture. It came with us from our old house, and I’m really diggin’ the way it plays with the birds on the walls in there.

Our half bathroom redo is almost complete, but I’m not gonna lie- last week was tough in there. Blood, sweat and tears? Check. Check. Double check. Who knew the littlest room in the place would whoop my booty so bad? That said, everything’s coming together slowly but surely, and I’m head-over-heels for the wallpaper- but I […]

Hello! I thought I’d share some photos of where we’re at in our half bath renovation today. (PS- We’re putting together a short video about some of the key steps in our process, and I look forward to sharing that whenever we wrap things up!) The floor and walls are starting to look much different than […]

Now that the sunroom is at a good stopping point (for the time being), we’ve decided to move on to a itty-bitty space that sits right next to it: our half bath. As you can see in the first floor layout above, it’s the only bathroom on the main floor of our (1728 sq. ft., […]
