a little update in photos

13 Mar

Work here has been chugging along – slowly but surely. Almost everything is complete except the kitchen and the final punch list. Of course, the kitchen is major and we’ve had some major hiccups with regard to horrible subs, but that seems to be water under the bridge now (fingers crossed). Until I have a chance to clean up and take some real pics, here are some iphone snapshots of some little vignettes in our house that are completed. So much to do – but I have started hanging stuff on the walls which makes me SO happy.

Cash’s travel and adventure themed room is finally coming together – will have a proper blog post on that soon.

I DIYed a custom sheet for Cash’s crib with some custom fabric from Spoonflower. I love the way it turned out.1902914_10203533147313988_1850873657_n

Finally hung some art in Zoey’s room, including a custom gallery wrap that I designed with a photo I took on our trip to Palm Springs last year.1932179_10203478985959988_1782140956_n

The exterior of the house is very close to done (just need a new sidewalk and landscaping). Here is a sneak peek.1980805_10203560556279195_1817501709_n

I finally took some pics of Z and Cash and made them into a gallery wrap to hang in our living area.


Also made a custom changing pad cover and wall art for Cash’s room (photo taken by me in Colorado)10002635_10203526995920207_1487903730_n

I’m in love with our breakfast nook. I’ll also have a separate post on that coming soon with sources 🙂


zoey’s mod big girl room – in progress

9 Oct

Zoey’s room is really coming together! It’s functional enough that she has moved in – though we still have a few major projects left in there before it is complete:

1 – New windows. The old windows are in desperate need of replacement – it get’s super hot up there in the afternoons. We ordered the windows and they are in

2 – Window coverings once the new windows are put in – some sort of solar or roller shades…

3 – Curtain panels to cover the closets. We were going to just replace the old closet doors or repaint the doors we pulled out, but they were too damaged. But, I thought for a softer look and easier access we would go with curtains.

4 – Wallpaper on the feature wall – wallpaper

5 – A Door! She currently has no door – we need to order a new door and install a doorknob/lever 🙂

6 – A completed bed! Still need to get this bad boy painted and then reupholstered! For now her mattress/box spring are on the floor, bachelor pad style 🙂

Here are some photos of her room where it’s at now – really love it! I pulled a lot of brass accent pieces that I had in storage for decor, and I love the way they look. Also, the little gilded gold table will be replaced – it’s awesome looking but not very stable/sturdy…so it’s just sitting in as a placeholder for now.











Closets in need of curtains to cover the craziness…


Craigslisted shelving makeover

3 Oct

Just wanted to share a makeover that I’m proud of! I bought this adorable shelving unit on CL last year and it has been waiting for it’s makeover for months now! I finally got around to painting it a lovely medium dark gray and I added some new pulls from Anthropologie. I tossed the old dated pulls and updated it with adorable brass owl pulls on the top set of drawers, and the mid century looking brass pulls on bottom set of drawers! Then, I filled it with some brass decor and other fun items for Zoey’s big girl room, and there we have it! More sneak peeks from Zoey’s room in progress coming next week 🙂





we have flooring!

23 Sep

We’ve been working hard the last few weeks making final prep for the carpeting to go in upstairs. We worked last weekend on installing, puttying and caulking all the new trim and all last week on painting it. I decided to go for a cool dark gray trim (Sherwin Williams Grizzle Gray)  in Zoey’s room with white walls (and some wallpaper coming soon!) and white trim in Cash’s room (haven’t decided yet what treatment or color we will paint those walls). Zoey’s room has been the priority since she has been basically ‘camping out’ since we moved in (last October!!) in one of our extra bedrooms downstairs. We also painted Zoey’s built in bookshelves and window seat the same trim color, and sprayed her entire closets in the gray. The flooring is a gray shag carpet from Home Depot – it is the Platinum Plus brand in Enticing II – color is quarry. We love it, it’s modern, really soft and plush. Here are some before and after pics – what a difference!!

after (we will be adding curtains as closet doors)


                We aren’t quite done – we still need closet doors for Cash’s room and curtain doors for Zoey’s room. We also need doors and levers for both rooms – we wanted to reuse the old doors and just paint them, but they were all chipped up and in bad shape. We also have plans to put in new windows – we are saving up for that…

Zoey’s big girl room in the works

9 Sep

I’ve got some big plans for changing Zoey’s room up from her pink, gray and yellow baby room to her big girl room! Here is a pic of her baby room at the old brady bunch house right before we moved. We are keeping the mid century modern white dresser, but most everything else (furniture) in her old room is finding a new home as of now (and the crib will be moving into Cash’s room).


And a pic of her new room (before we started any work in there) here at West Terrace. I LOVE the reading/window nook/dormer! So far we have pulled out the nasty carpet and all the trim and closet doors, patched primed and painted the walls (a fresh white), put in a new ceiling fan, and put in new modern trim. Carpet should be going in within a couple weeks and it will be a modern gray shag. I tried to press for laminate or wood flooring but Mike is really into carpet in the upstairs bedrooms for sound dampering and comfort. He won 🙂


Zoey’s a girly girl so we will still be incorporating pink (a dark sophisticated pink) into her new room, with accents of gray and gold! It will be a little mod, a little retro/mid century, and fun! I’m quite excited to add some gold into the room – Mike isn’t a fan so this is really the only room in the house where I can get away with it 🙂

Of course, I plan to wallpaper an accent wall in the room. I’m thinking either the actual nook or the two side walls surrounding the book that curve into the ceiling…I also plan to paint the bookcases a dark gray.

Here are some wallpaper options I’m toying with. I think this first one, pink toile, is the winner. It’s fun, whimsical, and a little mid century modern and retro! It’s from Spoonflower – a site which I discovered last week and I’m obsessed. You can design your own wallpaper/fabric, but if you’re like me and just want to pick designs from others, you can do that too. There are so many options! I’ve been looking for wallpaper for Zoey’s room for months and hadn’t really found anything I loved until I found these.


I also love this option harmony gray and coral, maybe as a fabric instead of a wallpaper…some pillows for the bed?


And this one is super cool too! Foxen coral


I also love this as a wall accent color (maybe in the nook surrounded by the wallpaper)? The color according to the source is Eros Pink by Sherwin Williams.



I also ordered a pair of these kids S chairs from overstock when they were having their labor day sale last week. So fun! babyschair

And I plan to use them with this modern kids table from overstock.whitetable

One of these John Widdicomb beds will be Zoey’s new big girl bed. I bought them off Craigslist very early on this year and they’ve been collecting dust since. I plan to spray the frame white and reupholster in a pink, grey, or gold. I can’t make up my mind on this one!

And I love this art by Inaluxe for her room! blossom

So, that’s the plan. Let’s hope it comes together like it is in my head 🙂
