Neutral Baby Boy Nursery

With the arrival of our little man happening any day now {woohoo!}, it’s time I share his sweet nursery. It’s been finished for about a month now but my lack of energy/time has prevented me from sharing it until now. We kept it very soft and neutral, as is the rest of our house, and […]

Antique Hutch

On one of Mike’s days off in July we decided to take a family antiquing trip. Molly actually loves to go to antique shops, funny enough. She loves digging through all that old stuff and actually pulls out some good finds. The shop owners all love her because she will find something and say, “Mommy, […]

DIY Pull-Out Kitchen Cabinet

DIY Kitchen pull-Out Cabinet Ikea Match

When we designed our Ikea kitchen ago, we were very happy with the layout. Once we installed it, there was a slight gap {which we had anticipated} between the fridge and the wall. Since this is not a custom kitchen, we knew we wouldn’t have a perfect built-in around our fridge but thought we could […]

Adding Molding to a Kitchen Island Base

Our kitchen island base has been unfinished since October:) Because we bought Ikea cabinets and built our own base, the Ikea panels for the sides were sort of fudged on. They didn’t reach the floor since Mike used 2x4s to build the cabinets up and attach them to the floor so we cut an extra […]
