Building the Perfect Guest Bedroom

Building the Perfect Guest Bedroom

Alright alright! It’s time for the guest bedroom reveal my friends! I apologize for not doing this sooner but hey, I couldn’t give you ALL the surprises at once, right? Where’s the fun in that? If you remember a couple of months back, I put together an inspiration board to pulling together an inviting and comfortable room for our overnight guests.

One Room Challenge Week 6!!!!!!! Is this Heaven? No, it's our Basement! The Big Reveal!!!

One Room Challenge Week 6!!!!!!! Is this Heaven? No, it's our Basement! The Big Reveal!!!

Wowza you all! I don’t think I’ve been this tired in a very very long time. I feel like it’s college exam week and the coffee, slurpees and cheesy fries just aren’t working to keep me peppy and creative. But we are finally to the finish line! The basement is complete(ish). I mean is a space ever really complete? We’re gonna call this a win though because it’s the one place in our house that our whole family has helped design and that makes it pretty darn good.

Lets take a quick trip down memory lane and look back on where we started. I can’t resist a good “before” shot.

Week 3 One Room Challenge: Floors, bathroom and stairs!

Week 3 One Room Challenge: Floors, bathroom and stairs!

Well we’re half way through the One Room Challenge and things are FINALLY starting to take shape. You know that period during the renovation when you feel like it’s never going to end? We were there and then the floors went in and the bathroom started looking like a bathroom and hope springs eternal!!!!

As a reminder, we chose a luxury vinyl for our flooring that could hold up to boys, husbands and dogs (if the dogs ever decide to head down to the basement). I knew the flooring would look amazing but seeing really is believing! First of all, the lock in process is awesome and makes the whole process pretty quick. But hello! How real is this project getting now that the floors are down? Can we all say AMEN?!

Week 2 One Room Challenge: Foundations, Floors and a little Fun too!

Week 2 One Room Challenge: Foundations, Floors and a little Fun too!

Welcome to week 2 of the One Room Challenge! As a little refresher. we are renovating our unfinished basement and turning it into a hangout area for the boys, adding a guest room and bathroom. Lots and lots of moving parts come with that and because of that we had to call in the professionals. We chose a great, local company, Greenpoint Services, to work with to help us transform this basement. First things first, they had to tackle the water problem.

Its A Colorful Life: Spring Tour

I think we are all excited spring is finally happening! It was a looooong winter I mean can we talk about all the rain?! Every March I go through a spring transformation in the house and I pull out all my floral and bright patterns for my tables, chairs and couches and bookshelves. This year I get to show it all to you all because I’m participating in the It’s A Colorful Life Spring tour hosted by my lovely friends Jeweled Interiors and DImples and Tangles. The tour started yesterday (Tuesday) and runs through Friday featuring 15 beautiful and colorful blogs. If you’ve been looking for inspiration, search no more, these ladies will have all the inspo you need!
