Another month has passed and I wanted to give you guys an update on the kitchen renovation as well as some of my feedback on my new goodies like the countertops, backsplash, appliances and lighting. And **spoiler alert** the kitchen still isn’t done. Shocker.
We’ve now been living in our house for nearly four months. And in those four months, I’ve been testing and analyzing our appliances so I can give you guys some of my honest feedback. Picking out appliances was a difficult process made much easier by the helpful appliance sales team at Nebraska Furniture Mart and reading reviews. Considering how much I appreciated having reviews at my fingertips, I am giving a full review of our new 30” Frigidaire Professional Freestanding Gas Range. Ok, let’s break it down!
You’ve seen them in Better Homes and Gardens. You’ve seen them in Architectural Digest. Heck. You’ve seen them ALL OVER Pinterest. They’ve become a staple in the ideal southern home and I’ve been dying to have one for quite some time. Let me introduce to you the hanging swing, also known as the hanging bed due to its literal bed-sized dimensions. I’ve been obsessing over them for some time, and here’s why.
After months of our backyard being in “demo mode” as our pool was being built, it was hard to imagine how amazingly bright and bold it would soon become. Months of brown dirt and grey concrete became our new norm, but soon enough our world would transform from black and white to color. I just posted about our pool progress in this post here, so make sure to check it out to get up to speed!
I feel like I could write a book on everything I’ve learned during our never-ending renovation. Of the many subject matters I’m quickly becoming an expert in (or at least FEEL like I’m becoming an expert in) flooring has become one of them. With my real-life experience (which you simply can’t beat) and some additional tips from a Shaw Flooring expert (Natalie Cady, Shaw’s Hardwood Category Manager) I wanted to give you guys some pointers on what I’ve learned during this process.
I never thought I would really own a home with a front porch. Or at least one that you could put more than two small chairs on. One that spanned the entire width of the house with steps that led up to it. Although to some, a front porch might not seem like much, to me, it was everything.
Ugh. Why does Target always have to torture me? I get the emails. I see the ads on facebook. I follow them on Instagram. Whyyyyy do I do this to myself?
