After years of remodeling our house (yes, YEARS, shut up), I’ve discovered a few beyond-the-basics and even unusual tools for remodeling that are down right handy. Here are my top 10 unusual but handy tools for remodeling!
Remember when I wrote that tutorial on how we repurposed the tables built from wooden pallets for our wedding into a cool ceiling treatment for our entryway? Are you dying to do one of your own? These ceilings are perfect for small rooms with good ventilation – like a powder room, hallway, or entryway. Try to stick to a room with a ceiling that you can clean (cobwebs and dust do get stuck on this due to the rustic, uneven nature of the medium). We really love the look of ours and it was SO easy to do (a bit tedious but SO easy). Interested in doing one yourself? Here’s a round up of everything you need to DIY your own wooden pallet ceiling is on Amazon (and don’t forget to click through and become an Amazon Prime member with free two day shipping!):
Here’s my ode to remodeling or, why I want my house to be more like a frat house. I do want my home to be livable, comfortable, and washable.
One of the major things that has driven our focus during this endless remodel has been the fact that this is not our forever home. While we love the acreage and our neighbors (which include my awesome in-laws), this is…
Happy Superb Owl! Yes, you read that right. Today I’m gearing up for Superb Owl Sunday around here and celebrating it by sharing this farmhouse chic welcome basket. We had new neighbors move in down the street from us and,…
I’ve spent years tackling cedar fever and trying to make our home a safe haven from it for my family. I got a chance to try out the Molekule Air and, oh my God, does it work!
Bitch, I Can Celebrate Thanksgiving And Christmas At The Same Time… I’ve Got Time!
Finn turned 7 months old on Monday and, well, I forgot to take pictures until today. My bad. But y’all – seven months is BANK. Finn’s sitting up on his own, quite the wiggle monster, and starting to give kisses. It’s freaking ADORABLE. He’s still working on crawling and way, way NOT into eating solid foods but loves watching other people eat. Like I did with Melanie, I’ll be doing a little photo project for his first year with monthly photos and a brief rundown of what’s happening in his little world (I’m sharing this in a format that I plan on using in a photo book featuring his first year):
If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I was born and raised in Alaska, roughly two hours from the Canadian border. It’s funny growing up there, because it always feels like Canada is a part of you (like, you refer to the continental United States as “the Outside” but Canada is “next door”). Growing up, we often hosted high schools from Canada at sporting events or cultural activites. So much so, that basically everyone in Alaska knows both of the national anthems of the two countries. I sang “The Star Spangled Banner” and “O Canada” before many a high school basketball game and, to this day, I still know both by heart. So when I realized that my “other homeland” was going to be celebrating their 150th birthday – I immediately wanted to do a little something to embrace those memories of singing their gorgeous anthem. So, I busted out my trusty Cricut Explore Air and made a fun, glittery banner! Check out my step by step tutorial on how to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday with this DIY “O Canada” banner!
