I've done my best to compile a list of Mother's Day gift ideas for the special mama in your life regardless of budget! Imma be real for like 2.5 if I may, but don't make it weird for me, k?

This is what happens when your handyman is also being the hands and feet of the Lort, known what I mean? God bless his soul, he works tirelessly all day and then comes home and works tirelessly until … [Read more...] about One Room Challenge Week 5: That’s it?
One Room Challenge keeps on coming and we are doing our best to keep up. Week 4 details below! I talked about in our week 3 post that it's hard to do work to a bathroom when you're out of town for a week. So, once we got back in town, we were home for 4 days and had something every night that kept us out of the house and now we are out of town this weekend. As in, I'm writing this post from the beautiful view of hotel room decor. (Seriously, what is up with carpet choices in hotels??) The … [Read more...] about One Room Challenge Week 4: Niche, please.
We are in the middle of our One Room Challenge guest bathroom makeover. See what all we got done in week three! Spoiler alert: It's real hard to do anything on a bathroom renovation when you're out of town unplanned for a week.....Le sigh. So, our progress was not all I had hoped or dreamed, but we got a FIVE DOLLAR BATHTUB, Y'ALL. FIVE. DOLLARS. For a bathtub. The story is as follows: In our post where we shared the final plans for this room, we talked about the tub we were getting which … [Read more...] about One Room Challenge Week 3: The Story of the $5 tub and (dry)wall art

If it seems like things have slowed down a bit over here, they have. Quite frankly, we're not taking on any more huge projects knowing that this guest bathroom reno is coming in hot. However, I did feel as if it may be a good idea to show you guys before photos. Not even real sure if you want to see them, but it's what you signed up for, k? Can't appreciate some after photos without the before, right? Also, do y'all have ANY idea how hard it is to photograph a small bathroom with a weird … [Read more...] about Guest Bathroom Before Tour
