Hands-down, this is the most ambitious project that Susan and I have ever taken on! It’s the first project that we decided to tackle in our new house. We moved here in October 2017 after realizing that we were more about the ‘Urban Life’ and less about the ‘Lake Life.’ Our lake house sold veryContinue reading “Master Bathroom Renovation”
Susan and I have this dream of buying a fixer-upper and rehabbing it one day. I think this master bedroom remodel project was a good way to get our feet wet before for a much larger, whole-house project. Before the remodel, our bedroom was tiered. As you can see in the pictures below, we hadContinue reading “Master Bedroom Remodel”
We had some leftover “beams” from our DIY Restoration Hardware Bardenas table, and figured we’d put them to good use by making a matching sofa for the patio. DIY furniture is the best, because you can customize everything. For instance, we knew we wanted a sofa on our back patio, but we didn’t have muchContinue reading “Outdoor Sofa”
A lot of our project inspiration comes from Restoration Hardware. Let’s face it, RH’s furniture is jaw-dropping gorgeous, but a wee little bit pricey. Ok… it’s way pricey. Take this outdoor dining table, for instance. Pretty, right? Yep, we thought so, too. But at $4,075 (for just the table!) it was a bit out ofContinue reading “DIY Restoration Hardware Bardenas Table”
We had some leftover Ipe decking from our deck project last summer, and I was ready to get it out of the garage! It was taking up way too much space in our garage gym, so it had to go.
For Valentine’s Day this year, we spent some quality time in the bedroom. No, no… this isn’t that type of blog. We spent the afternoon wallpapering. 😉 Wallpaper is coming back into style in a big way! No joke. There are some really awesome prints and patterns available – everything from forest scenes to metallics to theContinue reading “Wallpaper is cool again… No, really!”
I’m so amazed by smart people. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I like to consider myself fairy bright. But sometimes I’m truly overwhelmed by what other people can do. Take these stars, for instance. It would have taken me somewhere in the ballpark of 3 months to figure out the math and the anglesContinue reading “Wood Stars”
Our very good friends Chris & Shara are expecting a baby in November. When they mentioned that they were paying someone to redo a dresser for them, we said, “Excuse me?? Why would you pay a stranger to do that when we would LOVE to do the project for you!” They did decide to entrustContinue reading “Dresser Rehab with Hidden Compartment”
We absolutely love tables made from slabs – especially when the live edge is left intact. Something about the modern + natural combination is so beautiful. All the clean, sharp lines intrinsic in modern design coupled with the rawness and beauty of wood slabs is just stunning.
I’ve always liked the Live, Love, Laugh slogan. Since we live on a lake, I thought it would be fun to take a slightly different spin on the slogan and have a Live, Love, Lake sign in our entryway.
