A quick and easy door makeover, teal exterior door and yellow house

Our screened in porch door got a makeover this weekend! If you follow me over on Instagram, you may have heard me talking about how I’ve been thinking about painting our front door pink. It’s a gutsy move, I guess, but not really…because it’s a super fast and super easy change! However, I just couldn’t bring myself to commit and decided to go with something a little more on the “safe” side – painting our screened in porch door. I…

My Favorite Magnolia Items

The Best Items from Magnolia Market

Happy Friday & Happy Cinco de Mayo! Last Spring, Henry and I roadtripped to Texas with my parents. Brandon stayed home to work (poor guy) but he was probably glad he wasn’t able to make it. About three days into our trip, I came down with the flu while we were in San Antonio. The real flu, ya’ll. As in Influenza A. It’s not something I’d wish on anyone! But luckily my parents were there to help with Henry, and…

Affordable and Pretty Bathroom Faucets via Life on Shady Lane blog

You know how sometimes you go into a store with something specific in mind and realize there’s only one option that is somewhat similar to what you pictured in your head? That’s been my experience when looking for bathroom faucets so far, although I have a few different ideas of what I like. I just know I want something different. And the stores I’ve been in either had nothing different, or there was like one faucet that I kind of, sort of…
