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

Home Updates II

We’ve made some progress since my last home update {post}

 Our couch finally arrived! We waited 6 whole weeks for this beauty and let me just say, it was worth the wait! We are so in love with our new sofa from Bassett!

{A close up of the fabric detail}

And just to give you a little reminder of what our living room looked like when we first moved in…

 Then for awhile we had colorful temporary furniture…

and one more picture of our beloved sofa…

Our guest room is probably the closest room to being complete in our home. Over the weekend, I scored a set of 3 sunburst mirrors {for $20} from Target to add above the bed.

In our entry way, we added board & batten. The room was instantly brighter after this quick and inexpensive {approx. $160} project. And although this space has a very long way to go, we are loving the progress of our entry way!

And speaking of entering our home. Just before you walk through our front door, you are now greeted with a happy front porch…

 We purchased two rocking chairs {$99/each from Home Depot} and a small table {$25 from Target} for the front porch. Then we added pillows and bright flowers to make it even more welcoming.

We are on a roll, so stay tuned for more updates to come!

Love the updates, especially the sofa it's beautiful! We have one almost identical and love it! Do you have a link for the rocking chairs? I've been looking for 2 for our porch but can't find any for $99 on Home Depot's website.

Home Updates I

I know I owe you all a thorough recap of the best bachelorette weekend I’ve ever been a part of and I promise to write a post later this week when I’m done traveling for work. Until then, I have a few home updates for ya…

We bought a couch! I owe a huge thank you to those who left glowing comments {on this post} about Bassett Furniture. The service and quality Bassett offered was something we couldn’t pass up. We spent a bit more than we had hoped, but I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun I had playing in fabric swatches, picking out legs, pillows, cushions, arm styles and more! We were able to  construct the perfect custom sofa to fit our living room! Oh, and I was cautious in picking an upholstered couch over a slip cover until I found out Bassett offers a 5 year stain guarantee. They will come out and spot clean any stain! Sold! Now we just have to wait 6 whole weeks for our beauty to arrive.

 After 4 months, we finally found the perfect head chairs for our dining room table at World Market! And now that our table is finally complete you can expect that DIY Farmhouse Table tutorial I’ve been promising to debut sometime next week!

I snagged a $5 rug from West Elm {in the clearance section} for the kitchen.

 We hung botanical prints in the master and guest bathroom. I found these framed flowers for $10 each at an estate sale. 

New knobs {$8/set} from World Market for our laundry room cabinets!

We added a gorgeous upholstered headboard to our guest bed that was gifted to us by my sweet friend {Kristen}!

and a bright yellow rug {$188} from Rugs USA.

More updates to come soon!
