Friday Favorites

We have two Friday Favorites to share with you today and they are both amazing! I’m a little long-winded in this post, so hang tight. We are in the cabinet phase of the house (kitchen) right now and we struck gold!  First off, our Amish cabinet maker is the best. Seriously. The. Best. He was

As you may remember from this post, Trent and I ordered our kitchen cabinets a year ago! An entire year! Well, the time has finally come for those cabinets to earn their keep. They have been hanging out in our garage this entire time and few days ago we pulled off the tarp. We dusted

Tuesday Tidbits

The staircase is almost fully finished! The major items have been completed, but we have a few finishing touches to still get around to. If I were a bettin’ gal, I would say we won’t get around to those finishes until after we have moved in. #priorities On Saturday I decided to pull up the

Tuesday Tidbits

Another Tuesday and another bunch of Tidbits! The staircase is officially starting today! There are SO many parts, it’s insane. It’s hard to grasp the size of things because everything is so big in this house…but trust me, it’s a lot of hickory, it’s huge and it’s heavy (Trent and I moved every single piece

Tile Tutorial

Many of you have sent messages asking questions about our tile process.
