DIY Crawl Space Barn Door

I’m so excited to be part of a group of bloggers kicking off Remodelaholic’s #PlywoodPretty week and sharing my idea on making plywood into something pretty!  We still have a long list of projects since we’ve moved, but one of the features we love best in our new house is our huge finished basement.   It is the perfect place for both the kids and adults to hang out and relax with friends and family.   There is so much to love about our basement and we really can’t complain about much in this space…. except for one tiny (ok, major) eyesore:  the giant unfinished crawl space hole under the stairs!

Plans for our son’s Toddler Room

Tax season has been keeping me pretty busy these days, but my son is officially graduating from his crib and into a “big boy” room, so you know I had to find time to plan out his new room!  He is crazy about anything that “goes” – trucks, planes, trains, cars – if it has wheels he has major heart eyes.  I want his room to be a place he loves, so naturally I decided to do a “things that go” theme.  Here are my plans: Continue reading

To me, a master bedroom should be a place where you can come at the end of a long day and unwind.  Serene, relaxing, and inviting.  I wanted to create a space for my husband and myself that was ours.  Now, for those of you who have been following my blog for a while, you know that we just spent a lot of money buying a new house –  so we didn’t have a huge budget to make our master bedroom ours.  We thought about maybe living with how the previous homeowners had theirs until we could afford to make the space ours.   However, once we walked into our new house for the first time after closing, we quickly realized the previous owners didn’t paint behind their headboard – so the master bedroom was two very different colors.  And THAT was something we really couldn’t live with.   Continue reading
