Nashville House Tour // Kitchen

It’s time to peek into another room. This kitchen seems to have been an add on to this home at some point. The house was built in 1930, and this kitchen looks new, the roof is dropped a few feet from the main house, and it just “feels” not as old if that makes sense. Not renovated, but added. I can’t wait to find out all the juicy details once we get to our addition on the house and dig into it’s history. One huge perk was that the two full baths and the kitchen were in good clean condition,

Little Bit O' Landscaping

The new house came pretty well landscaped. We couldn’t really see much of what was going on because winter’s touch leaves everything a little less green than it should be. There were professional landscape blueprints in a closet, and we got to look through what was done recently. We have three Japanese maples as opposed to one at our last home. We love those little trees so much. They are kind of magical. There are a slew of other things we aren’t so familiar with, and are excited to see them bloom. We also wanted to add a little touch

All I need is 15.

A shower is a beautiful thing when you have a new baby. It’s been the only real time I have to myself where I get to worry about me for a solid, consecutive 15 minutes. You better believe I am investing in the “shower experience” to be the best it could be. We first started with changing the light in the bathroom earlier this year to be cuter and more functional. We mimicked the blue metal light from the side of the house and brought it into the bathroom, which allowed me to get my white on and let the blue

Looks like we are Teacher's Pet!

Hello Friends! Happy weekend! We have just wrapped up having all of our bathrooms refinished, and are excited to share what we did, how we did it, and why. We are on a hunt for floors, but the walls look SO GOOD all white! In the meantime, we have been having a fun time testing our skills on homeownership. Were you able to take the 2 minute quiz to see where you land?   One of the questions really struck a cord with us being we have had the bad fortune of having gutters completely ruin a wall in our

99% There with #MAHAHKitchenReno!

Hello friends! Have you ever been really really excited about something and just wanted tell everyone you knew who might be remotely interested? That’s exactly how I feel about our new counters! We have been living with them now for almost two weeks, so I got to know them well enough to know I love them. A lot. If you have no idea what I am rambling about, check out our last post about our counter installation.  We let the professionals handle this one, which was a nice break being we are also mid-bathroom renovation on all three baths.

#MAHAHKitchen Reno is ALMOST DONE!

Hello friends! We are so so so excited and PLEASED with our new countertops! Giddy to be more accurate. If you have been following along on our instagram feed and read the lasts post, you got some glimpses of the beautiful new counters we had installed this past week and are up to date. If  not, here is a quick recap. We hired the professionals to come in and fix our countertop mistakes we made last year. They came to measure, and we made a little video to walk the interested through the process. When they came over they brought

Light it Up

We have never done multiple major projects at one time, and our home looks like a war zone! We are crossing fingers to wrap up the major stuff before Summer is officially over. If you want to catch up on the kitchen portion of our chaos, check out our last #MAHAHKitchenReno update here, and the first reno post here. The pressure is on! We wanted to swap out this dated and ugly light that’s been hanging out in our kitchen for a little too long. She’s seen better days. So has her back side. We removed her with the plan

A Million Projects at Once

Our to-do list has been long since the moment we bought the house, and has only gotten longer and more complex the more we have lived in it. When we bought the house, the exterior was pretty great, and sometime last year the paint started to deteriorate. It upsets me to no end that this has happened because we soon found out a paint job + wood repair runs around $40,000. Yes Ma’am – go buy yourself a luxury vehicle kind of $40K. Bummer. So we successfully painted the front door, and then stopped to really think about painting the

We've Got The Blues

In a good way! I had a knot in my stomach about doing this, but I am so happy we decided to paint our front door. We were going to just do a post about how to paint a front door the right way, but it turned into so much more. How to remove a screen door and properly patch up the aftermath. How to paint trim. What primer knocked our sox off, and works fantastic. And, how to pick exterior colors that compliment the style of your home. Last but not least, we may have gone mad – because
