Board and Batten


Our entryway has long been a blah area.  We have had huge white walls and this ugly border running along the bottom of the wall and up our staircase that doesn’t match our decor.  We had decided that we would take the border down and paint the whole area, all the way up the two-story […]

February Budget Wrap-Up

monthly wrap up

Welcome to my first official monthly wrap-up!  Ok, I know that February isn’t actually over yet, but this is the last Friday (and I’m out of money) so we’re wrapping it up.   It was another noteworthy month at our house for projects on a budget and I’m excited to share the monthly wrap-up with you.  Here is […]

Ikea and desk update


We took a road trip to Ikea over the weekend and had so much fun.  It’s a bit of a drive for us-about an hour and 45 minutes-but it was so worth it. Not only did we get some great stuff for our house, we got almost 4 hours of quality time in the car […]
