Adding Molding to a Kitchen Island Base

Our kitchen island base has been unfinished since October:) Because we bought Ikea cabinets and built our own base, the Ikea panels for the sides were sort of fudged on. They didn’t reach the floor since Mike used 2x4s to build the cabinets up and attach them to the floor so we cut an extra […] ...more

We’re Expanding…

You may have noticed it’s been a tad quiet around here lately. It’s not for a lack of projects-my sweet, hard-working husband has knocked out a huge to-do list lately that I will definitely share soon.

I’ve added touches of spring all over and finally filled a large empty wall in our dining […] ...more

Spring Cleaning: Make-up Style

Spring Cleaning: Trying Out New Make-Up Looks

I don't know what the weather has been like where you live, but around here spring is peeking its beautiful face out and I'm loving it. We've been able to go on walks and plan and prep for some big outdoor projects we are getting ready to tackle. We start thinking about outdoors and spring cleaning when this weather arrives and part of spring cleaning usually includes closets, and pulling out buckets and mops. One routine I've tried to get into as well is getting rid of old make-up. I don't do it as often as I should but every time I do it feels great to start over....more
