Upstairs Bathroom: Countertops and a Copper Sink

Modern farmhouse bathroom, copper bathroom sink and granite countertops

An update on our upstairs bathroom – we now have a copper sink and granite countertops! A few weeks ago, we got to do something I have always wanted to do: walk through a countertop warehouse and choose our own granite slab. I found a piece of quartz that I LOVED, but had to keep in mind the aesthetics of the rest of the bathroom. I’ll put the quartz in my future kitchen. ;) You can see my last update…

Our upstairs bathroom: shiplap, tub, flooring, and vanity – so many updates, and so close to the finish line!

My all time favorite (kid friendly!) rug - it's machine washable!

My all time favorite (kid friendly!) rug is seriously the best rug you’ll ever have in your home This post may contain affiliate links Our home has all hardwood floors, and I love them. BUT, I also love area rugs for cozying up our home…and especially with little kids, rugs are so necessary. They’re a soft space to lay down, stretch out, learn to roll over and crawl…a must-have, in my book. And while rugs are a whole lot easier…

Halloween Mantel with Copper Accents

My Halloween mantel with copper accents has traditional Fall colors and natural elements This post may contain affiliate links If you saw my Early Fall Home Tour [here], then you know that I incorporated a lot of non-traditional Fall colors like navy, white, and green. I loved the fresh feeling it brought into our home! But when it came time to decorate our mantel for Halloween, I wanted the cozy feel of more traditional oranges and reds. Halloween is Henry’s…

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…

A freshly painted bathroom vanity with a Magnolia Home paint color and updated matte black hardware! This post may contain affiliate links.

Up until recently, I wasn’t sure I even wanted to paint…

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

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.

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…

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…
