Refinishing Our Secondhand Dining Room Table

Before moving last December, we sold the farm table we built for our old dining room. Unfortunately, it was too big for the new house and the style felt a bit off. We considered building a new table, but in the meantime I kept an eye out for something secondhand that...

September is quickly approaching, so I thought it would be fun to share what our garden has produced (so far) this summer. We still have a few good weeks of growing ahead of us, but the plants are beginning to reach maturity and the end of the hot season is near....

Home is where you make it

We believe the best recipe for creating spaces you love is to surround yourself with things that make you happy, never save your best for special occasions and think outside the box. The only rules we tend to follow are the ones we’re required to.

Finished Built-In Shelves in Matt’s Office

Believe it or not, the last update I shared on Matt’s office shelves was in April of this year. The garden and summer commitments have kept us incredibly busy, so it took me a while to get back to finishing up the last bit of painting on the doors and trim. To be...

What We Planted in the Kitchen Garden

What We Planted in the Kitchen Garden

This is the first year we’ll be growing produce in our newly built raised bed kitchen garden. If I’ve learned anything through my research it’s that gardening isn’t an exact science and each year will teach you something new. Sure, there are some rules that tend to...

DIY Upholstered Bed Frame

DIY Upholstered Bed Frame

I can't believe I'm writing this – we built a bed frame! When we moved into our new house last December, we upgraded from a queen to a king mattress. Everything for a king bed is bigger – pillows, sheets, bed frames – and that often means it's more expensive, too. I...
