• Weekend Tiling

    After taking months to decide, I finally chose a tile for our kitchen backsplash. By finally chose I really mean that I purchased subway tile from one store, changed my mind the next day and returned the tile, then went to another store and purchased my second choice. I could have waffled some more (confessions […]

  • DIY: Peg Rail + Shelf

    Modern entry way diy peg rail

    The diy peg rail shelf was a must have in our entry way and after deciding to make it myself, it quickly became my favorite project. It faithfully holds all of my purses (when I just can’t choose which one I like the best), the baby carrier to grab as I walk out of the […]

    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 […]

  • Some Shelves


    Before our renovation, I made a track-shelving desk near our bed area. It worked out great while we had a queen bed positioned the way it was but once we acquired a king bed and rotated it, the desk became a nuisance. As a side note, I’m pretty sure any event from here on out […]
