Home Updates III

Well it’s been awhile since my last {home update post} so I thought I would let you in on what’s been going on in our lil casa. I have to admit – we haven’t done a lot since I last posted, but the small projects we’ve gotten to have made a huge impact! 


For example, our dining room

A Before & After…

Adding frames to the wall and hanging curtains have totally transformed this room into a cozy little dining area. In fact, I am kind of obsessed with this room right now and it’s not even finished! We have just a few more details to add and finishing touches before I can call it “complete!”

For this wall project, we picked up 4 Ikea Ribba frames and framed some fabric. Super easy, super cheap, super big impact! 

The Ikat curtains are from Target {$29.99/panel} and you can find them {here}. The rod is from the allen + roth collection at Lowes {$49.97} and you can find it {here}.

Something awesome to happen to this side of the room soon…


Custom made wine cabinet – I swoon over this piece. All it needs is a mini bar, lamp, mirror and a few fabulous details to complete it!

But on another note completely off the subject – my dog is obsessed with photobombing my blog. You think I’m kidding. If I try and take a picture of him sleeping, running around or just being cute he purposely looks terrified and runs away. But as soon as I take the camera off him and start trying to photograph food, the house, DIY projects, etc. he literally runs in front of the camera and refuses to move. For example, it took me 20 minutes and 3 dog biscuits to get him out of my way for the dining room pictures…

 Photobombing since 2011.

Anyway, on to the guest bathroom.

The guest bath is pretty much done. Hallelujah!

Glass jars from Walmart.

I picked up these framed botanical prints from an estate sale for $8 each.

A few details about the shower curtain. I searched for weeks and weeks for the perfect waffle weave monogrammed shower curtain. I couldn’t find any for less than $60 + shipping + monogramming. I refused to spend that much so instead I made a trip to Target and picked up this {waffle weave shower curtain} for $23 and headed straight to L&M monogram. I can’t remember how much they charged me for the medium monogram, but I think it was around $15 or less. Anyway, it was all done for less than $40! Take that, Pottery Barn!!

Yes, we have pictures of our dog everywhere in the house, including the bathroom. A sign we will be crazy parents? Yeah, probably.

 The hand towels came in a set of two from Pottery Barn. I scored these on sale with free shipping last Christmas for less than $15.

And last but not least – the backyard patio area. I am so.in.love.

    Your house is gorgeous!! I love that you did so much on a budget too! I'm totally going to remember that monogrammed idea about taking what you want monogrammed to just a local shop. Saves so much $$!! I have that World Market Belize outdoor set too! I just wish I could find replacement pillows. They don't withstand weather too well!

    It all looks fantastic! I'm especially blown away by how much the dining room changed with the addition of curtains and a few frames. I used to have frames of my husbands (ours, now) dog around our home and now it's all Owen!

    Everything looks amazing! I am obsessed with your dining room. I love the idea of framing fabric. I'll have to keep that in mind when we move into our next home and I have more space. Love Charlie's bowtie in the picture in the bathroom – I've been wanting to get a bowtie collar for our pup and my husband is vetoing the idea. We have the same outside furniture from World Market and I love it. What a steal!
