    Installing Floating Shelves in Kitchen

    This week I’ve been working on installing floating shelves in our kitchen. Soon after we finished tiling last week, I prepared the shelves for installation and have been working on them ever since.

  • Running Electric to a Shed

    Running electric to a shed has been my least anticipated project. It took a lot of planning and some serious labor – pulling wires through conduit is no joke! I’m here today to share some tips I’ve learned while completing this project. Please keep in mind that I am not a certified electrician and am […]

Having already been 6 week pregnant, symptoms starting cropping up quickly, specifically morning sickness, which prevented me from being any help whatsoever. After the framing was completed, my husband tackled the […]

    Minimal Wood Lamp

    These lamps caught my eye several months ago on Pinterest and as I do with most things I see on Pinterest, I conspired to make my own. I acquired all the supplies and got right to work. I had the best intentions to finish it before Philip’s birth but things didn’t quite go as planned […]

  • Beeswax Candles

    Beeswax Candle

    I’ve always wanted to try my hand at making candles, so when my friend Rebekah pointed out that beeswax candles aid in cleaning the air, I became slightly obsessed. After all, cleaning and I go hand in hand now. The vintage Jell-O molds I thrifted made the perfect candle container. To save money, I thought […]
