rugs on my mind

After posting pictures of a semi house tour, I've noticed we could really use a larger, colorful rug in the living room. Here is a look at the current room.

 As I mentioned before, I found a paint color I'm crazy about on the Sherwin-Williams website called Sea Salt. Here is the color swatch to give you an idea of what I'm talking about.


guest room inspiration

Well, now you've seen our guest room, though it is incredibly unfinished.

I've been compiling different ideas for this room for a while now, & thought I would organize some of them here in a post!

Current Room

I bought the bedspread on clearance at TJ Maxx, which I like, but I would love to add a solid quilt & fold this patterned one at the end of the bed.


things you haven't seen

I've realized the only parts of our new home I've shown have pretty much been the hearth room & kitchen. Here is a little house tour of our place so far. Remember, we have not dedicated much time at all into these rooms, so just know there will be many more updates to come!

Guest Room

Check out the final look of our hard wood floor makeover! I love how the dark stain turned out. So far the guest room is a bit boring color wise, but I plan on painting it soon! 


a better look

I think it is always easier to see a real before & after with the photos side by side.

I'm even more excited to see the final after picture!



hearth love

I'm pretty much in love with how our hearth room has turned out so far. The last post I made was about painting our fireplace. Since then we have done a lot!

This is the last photo I posted of our progress:
