Pantry Door Handle

Ah, I get such joy out of the littlest things. When I was designing the layout for the kitchen I knew I had to have the stove on this wall. But this door to the pantry and electrical closet couldn't be moved so I just had to work around it. I decided to put two... Continue Reading →

Kitchen Counters

The kitchen counters have been installed! We got the Cortina Quartz and are super stoked with it. The installers did a great job. Hopefully this weekend we can get the backsplash done. And then we need to build the hood. And finish caulking the trim and touch up paint and this kitchen should be done!... Continue Reading →

Update: Master Bedroom

Projects on the house are now being done in little spurts. Not one room is completely finished. While we finally got all the base moulding done on the first level, there is still a ton of caulking, sanding and painting to do. I think the bedrooms are the closest to being completely done. We just... Continue Reading →

Front Entrance Vision

Our front door is in an awkward spot. This is the view from the street. It is around the corner to the right. Here's what the side view used to look like. The white door IS NOT the front door. That is the door to the kitchen. The front door is behind the spruce on... Continue Reading →

I'm pretty stoked how this bad boy came out. It's funny how some things work out. After installing all the grey kitchen cabinets I started preparing and searching for an island. I really wanted a rustic antique wood piece but knew it would be hard to find the perfect size. In my original drawing I... Continue Reading →

My last post was when our kitchen appliances arrived... Continue Reading →


Hooray! My kitchen appliances arrived! Too bad they're going to be sitting here for a while until the rest of the kitchen is ready. 😦  But I have to say that ordering these through Coscto was an awesome experience. I ordered them last week - they were having a Black Friday sale that I couldn't... Continue Reading →

Kitchen Update

This kitchen is going to be super kick ass! Lot's have happened already....Cabinets gone and walls were torn out. Why is that stove still there?? ;)Let the light in!! New half wall made with the original 2x4"s from 1906 that will look into the dining room and a fancy beam to help hold up this... Continue Reading →

Rattan Chevron Moss Green Table

 I've been a cleaning and organizing freak lately! Look at me go - another project in the bag! This little desk has been sitting in my garage for, oh, almost 2 years. Poor thing. It's so cute! And now... So pretty! I sprayed it with Moss Green Satin from Rust-Oleum. And surprisingly, it only took one... Continue Reading →
