Thanks for coming back for Week 3 of the One Room Challenge! We actually got a lotttt finished this past week, but for the sake of stretching my posts out over 6 weeks, I’m going to focus on the paint and a few other details, and save the vanity for next week!
We started painting this room a couple weeks ago, but then had to mud some additional things, so it actually got finished being painted this week. The paint is Valspar that’s color-matched to Farrow and Ball’s Pigeon (because let’s be honest, we’re already so over budget on this house and I’m not spending $100+ for a gallon of paint right now!) We already had the paint on hand because we’ll be using it on part of our fireplace wall (that’s another project for another day) and I’m just obsessed with it lately. Our kitchen cabinets are actually pretty much this color as well, so I guess you could say I’m feelin’ it for this house! Read More
Happy First Day of Summer friends! Although it's felt like summer for quite a while here in Orlando, today it's official!
One year ago today, Ryan and I were leaving for our epic #ItalianCroatianVacation - aka our two-week jaunt around Italy and Croatia. Take me back! Read More
Well we're over one month into our renovation, and it just now feels like we've turned a corner! Week four was pretty slow and frustrating - a delayed electrician meant that everything else was on hold. The walls couldn't be patched, which meant we couldn't paint, which meant we couldn't lay floors... oooof. So we fell a week or so behind schedule, but we more than made up for that in week 5!

Holy cow - has it really been 3 weeks since our renovation started? Time is flying - but somehow not going fast enough at the same time - since we're anxious for our house to be finished!
In the meantime, we're trying to enjoy the process. The changes in weeks two and three were a lot less visually dramatic (no knocking down a million walls), but things are moving along all the same. Here's the rundown of where we're at! Read More
We've made it through the first week of our renovation, and things are movin' and groovin' over at the house! Ryan and I have been over there pretty much every single day after work to check on how things are going. What can we say, we're just a tad excited! If you saw the post with our before pictures, you'll know how the house looked on the day we closed. One week later, here are our progress shots, and a breakdown of what's been going on. Read More
