I didn’t decorate for Halloween last year but I decided to this year because I found some décor at super cheap prices so I couldn’t resist!!! So check out my haunted farmhouse!!!

    Guest Room Makeover

    Isn’t it crazy what paint can do to change the look of a room?! When we bought our house our walls were tan. I like the gray/blue color scheme so the tan walls weren’t my favorite! The first room I painted was the laundry room. I went with a more blue color. Here’s how it looks now: Check out this blog post to see more before and after pictures. Then we painted the master bedroom and added a board and batten wall for my birthday. I had so much extra paint left over from the master bedroom that I decided to dedicate that paint color to all of the bedrooms.…

    I was able to update my kitchen for under $100! Sounds crazy right?! But we did it! When we bought our home the cabinets were dark wood, they basically matched the floors. It made the whole room so dark and I was dying to paint them white. After almost 6 months of living there and telling my husband I wanted to paint them he finally agreed to let me do it! I did hours and hours of research before finally deciding to bite the bullet. Let me tell you….this project is not fun. It took a lot of patience, sweat, and even tears. About half way through I even questioned…

    DIY Board and Batten Wall

    I’ve never been real happy with how our master bedroom looked but I always put it on the back burner. I had been wanting to paint the walls, add an accent wall, and get a new comforter. I was going back and forth between shiplap or board and batten for the accent wall. We have shiplap in the living room and kitchen so I decided to go with the board and batten. So if you’ve ever wondered how to add a board and batten wall yourself, here’s how! What you’ll need: – wood in the width you want – nails – sandpaper – paint – if your wall has texture…

    How to Get Rid of Carpenter Bees

    Now I know this isn’t the most interesting or exciting blog post you’ve read, but I do know that it could be very helpful for some people! Our house is made of cedar siding and everyone told us that the cedar siding would be a pain to maintain but I didn’t care! Even the millions of bee holes didn’t scare us away! We moved in the house in August so the bees weren’t too active. It wasn’t until spring time when we realized how bad the issue really was. We would walk outside and there were literally 50 bees all over the house. It was to the point where I…
