Tile Tutorial

Many of you have sent messages asking questions about our tile process. If you are planning on tiling something (kitchen backsplash, bathroom floor, bathroom shower), here is your step-by-step tutorial on how to lay tile. Every time we do another project, there is a new tool or creation that saves us a step (or 5

Tuesday Tidbits

I would tell you that we had another busy and productive week, but you have heard it before. The Tuesday Tidbits posts are becoming a broken record! I spent 3 hours putting together an itty bitty chandelier (seriously…3 hours and I had to borrow my husband’s engineering degree). This particular light fixture will be installed

Friday Favorites

We have a few more favorites to share with you this gorgeous Friday morning! While the plan is to do the breezeway floor last (like after we move in), I just couldn’t help myself and went ahead with another purchase. The hexagon and octagon tiles in the bathroom have turned out so nice we decided

This Tuesday Tidbits post is short and sweet for the simple fact that we are insanely busy! We have been working like crazy on the house. Forgive any typos…I’m writing this with eyes barely open.¬†While we are definitely closer to the end, we aren’t as close as most people believe. The finishes take forever! This

It has been a few weeks since we have shared some of our Friday Favorites…and we have a couple more things to add to the favorite list! If you live in the Michiana area, you know that the general rule of thumb is to plant flowers after Mother’s Day. I decided this past Saturday to

Tuesday Tidbits

It’s Tuesday and time for our Tidbits! I mentioned last week that we have a lot of things happening in the next 3-4 weeks and many of you asked why we would put this type of timeline on ourselves. Admittedly, some of the rush is us simply wanting to get things done. However, most of

Tuesday Tidbits

Guys, this Tuesday Tidbits is going to be short! The reason is that we are barely keeping our heads above water right now. We have learned in the past that projects hit a point where everything sort of needs to happen at once. It happens every time and yet we somehow seem to forget about
