My Closet Office

My Closet Office

This past month has been a whirl wind to say the least. I really hit the ground running after I got my real estate license in May. Many people have been asking me if I still have my job working as the Selections Coordinator for a home builder in my…
Our New Half Wall

Our New Half Wall

When Brandon and I were making the floorplans for the upstairs area, or “our apartment” as we call it now, we decided early on in the renovations that we would create a half wall by the stairs area to keep an open feel. (Before, there was a full wall there,…
Boho Chic Maxi

Boho Chic Maxi

When it comes to fashion, I love it when I find a piece that is both comfortable and chic at the same time. I found this amazing skirt at a shop in San Francisco last summer when Brandon and I took a road trip along the Pacific Coast Highway. I’ve…
Our DIY Bathroom Vanity

Our DIY Bathroom Vanity

As you may know, when Brandon and I moved into our house, there was only one small bathroom in the back of the downstairs part of the house. When we began working on the house, we decided right from the start, besides lowering the floor, that we were going to…
DIY Closet Built-Ins

DIY Closet Built-Ins

Space is a real luxury here at our house, or should I say, our ‘apartment‘ for the time being. When we redesigned the upstairs of our house, we took into account every square inch of the space and how we could make the most of it. In our bedroom, we…

This Old House Update

This past month of home-ownership has been a complete whirlwind. A month? Already? It’s crazy, I know. Brandon and I have been really busy frantically preparing for foam insulation. We decided early on in this process, after pulling down piles mouse poop infested fiberglass and loose blown insulation, that we…
Between the Floorboards

Between the Floorboards

This week did not go as I had planned. (That probably never happens to you right?) As you know, Brandon and I recently bought a house. We made the offer in June and after a long summer of waiting, we closed on it just about 2 weeks ago. We knew…
DIY Lace Shorts

DIY Lace Shorts

If you didn’t know this about me already, I love re-purposing old items and making them new again. This is especially the case when it comes to fashion and clothing. My latest DIY project was inspired by pair of lace shorts I saw at Forever 21 and I just knew…
DIY Beaded Sandals

DIY Beaded Sandals

It’s finally sandal season! Fun fact about me: I used to be the crazy girl in high school who would wear flip flops in the dead of winter. (Ask my mother it’s true- she worked at my school!) Well over the years I’ve smartened up and now only wear sandals…
Photo Frame Tray

Photo Frame Tray

A few years ago, I received a big tacky frame as a gift in a white elephant office Christmas party. It’s been sitting in my basement for over 2 years now, and almost made its way to our garage sale pile until I thought of another DIY use for it:…
