Kitchen Makeover

Hey y’all! I’ve finally got some pictures to share from the work that we’ve done in the kitchen! Back in February, Matt and I talked about making some changes around the condo and specifically in the kitchen; you can read more about the plans in this post. We repainted the kitchen cabinets (here) in April […]

Kitchen Plans

So I shared the big plans for the condo last week – we’re getting new flooring in our living room and kitchen! Hooray! That is the biggest change we’ve got planned, but it’s definitely not the only thing we’re updating in the kitchen! Since we spend a lot of time in the kitchen, I think […]

Big Plans for the Condo

When I shared about our pot rack earlier this week I mentioned that we have some exciting plans for the kitchen, but in reality we’re working on more than one room so I want to share the bigger picture before we get to the specifics of kitchen. See, when I moved into the condo in […]

Picture Ledges!

Hey y’all! I hope it’s been a great week so far! Ours has been pretty busy but good and I’m very excited because my brother is coming into town today! He has a wedding in Durham tomorrow night so he’s coming to stay with us for the weekend. Hooray! I mentioned on last week’s High Five […]

Well, it was definitely smaller until my awesome brother-in-law  Tyler moved the existing bar up and put in a second rod. This second rod doubles our hanging space and obviously […]

Being Realistic

When Matt and I talk about the condo, we like dream about what we could do – it would be nice to make big changes. But we have to be realistic. There are some things that we have to keep in mind: 1. The condo isn’t ever going to be our dream house. It’s a […]

Two People and One Condo

I’m learning that it’s an adjustment when two people start living under one roof. During our engagement when I would think about Matt moving in after the wedding, I naively thought that it wouldn’t be much of an adjustment. I’d had four different roommates in the condo already, and I knew that my best friend […]

Half-Bath Updates

half bath

The half bath is one of my favorite rooms in our place. Is that sad? I just love how it has changed over time! When I closed on the condo, it looked like this: I know that the picture does not show the whole room very well, so I’ll paint you a word picture – […]

Kitchen Updates

So the “before” pictures were pretty rough, I know. I promise that today’s will be a little bit better because I want to show you the progress that’s been made in the kitchen. First, here is the kitchen on the day we had the inspection: Pretty bad, huh? The wallpaper was literally falling off of […]
