Upstairs Bathroom Flooring, Paint, Tub and Sink Selections

We’re making progress! I’m sharing our upstairs bathroom flooring, paint, tub and sink selections today, so you can get a little sneak peek at what the space will look like when its finished!  We have been preparing for our upstairs bathroom renovation for quite a while. As far as the design process has gone, I first put together a post  on creating a modern farmhouse style bathroom [here] with a bunch of options and styles to choose from. It’s always…

Upstairs Bathroom: Demo Day

Demo day for our upstairs bathroom!  Earlier this week I shared our painted bathroom vanity [here] and today I’m going to balance all of that pretty out with some NOT so pretty. Our home has two bathrooms, and one of them is a serious wreck right now. Just keeping it real – not everything is pretty here! You may or may not remember that we have been planning the redesign of our upstairs bathroom. If you need a reminder of…

Bathroom Vanity Makeover

A freshly painted bathroom vanity with a Magnolia Home paint color and updated matte black hardware! This post may contain affiliate links. Remember the other day when I shared our black and white stenciled bathroom floor [here]? I mentioned in that post that I had plans to pretty up the vanity, as well, and actually completed it over a week ago but am just now getting around to sharing. Up until recently, I wasn’t sure I even wanted to paint…

This black and white stenciled bathroom floor project is the perfect way to freshen up old tiles and give them a modern look – on a budget! A big, huge THANK YOU to Rust-Oleum and Royal Design Studio for sponsoring this post!

A DIY pallet wood framed chalkboard - inexpensive and simple way to make over a cheap chalkboard!

This pallet wood framed chalkboard makes a great (simple!) DIY project Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I have been stepping away a little bit from this blog and social media on the weekends to give myself a little bit of a “recharge.” I know I won’t have much time at all to relax in September/October when the baby gets here and I’m trying to take care of a newborn AND chase a toddler around, so I’m attempting…

Vintage Modern Farmhouse Bathroom Plan

- Home, Projects + Inspiration

A vintage modern farmhouse bathroom plan that features crisp whites, warm reclaimed wood, and brick accents. Our plan for the renovations on the second floor of our home is to have them finished by the time baby gets here at the end of September. I’m currently taking bets on whether or not that’ll happen. ;) We’re actually getting pretty close…with the exception of the biggest part of the renovation: the bathroom. I showed the “before” photos of the bathroom [here],…

Master Bedroom Progress: Stenciled Wall

I wanted to share a little bit of our master bedroom progress today, because I’ve shown the stenciled wall a little bit on Instagram, but not here on the blog! The last time I showed bedroom’s progress, the accent wall was just painted a gray/black color. You can see that post [here]. I wanted to liven it up, though, and was thrilled when Royal Design Studio said they would send me a stencil to use. I went with the Zahara Moroccan…

A New Rug and Table for our Porch via Life on Shady Lane blog

Happy FRIDAY! It has been rainy and cold here all day today, but I decided to try and combat the “rainy day blues” by sprucing up our screened in porch just a little bit. I realized that I haven’t shown our porch in a LONG time (you can see the last post [here]) and I wanted to show you how it looks now. It still needs some pretty decor, but we’re getting there! A few weeks ago, I found a…

An Upstairs Update

Upstairs Update via Life on Shady Lane blog

I realized today that I’ve gone an entire week without updating you on what we’ve been up to lately in regards to the upstairs of our home. We do so much work updating and renovating this house along with the usual homeowner-related stuff like mowing, gardening, etc. that sometimes I forget to share the small, un-exciting projects. So today I don’t have an overly exciting post for you, but I wanted to let you know that we ARE continuing to work…

Henry's Bedroom: New paint and clean carpet!

Happy Friday-EVE! This entire week I’ve felt like it was one day ahead of what it actually was. So today it feels like it should be Friday…but I guess I have to wait a little longer for the weekend. ;) Home projects tend to move a little slowly when you have a toddler running around the house, so it’s been a while since I shared an update on the bedrooms upstairs. I just finished painting the master bedroom ceiling, so…

Our Upstairs Bathroom: Before via Life on Shady Lane blog

Ok guys, are you ready to see the scariest thing I’ve ever shown on my blog? Brace yourselves. Introducing: our upstairs bathroom. I showed you our two upstairs bedrooms [here] and [here], but before then I had never shown ANY of the upstairs of our home. The entire year and a half we’ve lived here, we have lived solely on the main floor. We still have some work to do on the main floor, but we have decided to finally…

Then and Now: The Kitchen via Life on Shady Lane blog

The other day I started a fun new series here on the blog called “Then and Now.” I started with our living room [here] and it was so fun to look back at the changes that we’ve made and all of the work that we have put in. Today we’re moving to the next room as you walk through the house: our kitchen. Side note: I’ve mentioned before that this room is so dang hard to photograph because it doesn’t…

Then and Now: Our Living Room

Happy APRIL! Hopefully this means warmer weather is on the way. ;) Sometimes it’s easy to get overwhelmed when living in a fixer upper. We look around and realize how much work still needs to be done on updating our home while still trying to fit in everyday chores like laundry, washing dishes, mopping the floor, cleaning windows, and scrubbing the toilet. Oh and then there are things like working and raising a toddler. It’s a lot! But when I…

A pop of blue, modern farmhouse entryway via Life on Shady Lane blog

Are you guys getting sick of my antique church pew yet? I feel like I’m redecorating it all of the time, but I’ve decided it’s my favorite thing to mix up in the whole house. I thought I might feel the same about our bookshelves (see those [here]) and while I do enjoy changing those up, I tend to just add a few things here and there and mix things around a bit. I finally got the shelves styled how I…
