New Media Console

Fair warning - I only took really poor quality cell phone pictures of this before and after.  It was such a simple update but it might be one of my favorite make overs yet. 

I got this beauty off Craigslist but the top had a substantial amount of water damage. Ignore the junk on top. It sat in the garage for month and accumulated stuff.  

A few coats of navy blue paint and I'm in love. 

She's a beauty, right?!

Free Artwork

Wow, it's been awhile!  Something about being a mom makes me ten times busier!  I've been busy doing projects when I find time but because the time is limited I haven't been documenting them.

But, I wanted to share this fun little project that I did and it was completely free! Dan picked up a couple pallets from one of his customers and my brother's girlfriend and I spent the afternoon turning them in to artwork.

The process was simple and straight forward.  Remove wood from the pallet, use 2 pieces on the back to hold the larger pieces together and paint!  I painted the heart first and then sanded a bit so it looked more distressed.  And painted the hello on last.!

Things are Coming Together

After almost 2 years of living here, things are finally coming together in the very first room you see when you walk in to the house. 

I'm just going to post a bunch of pictures and you'll be able to see the updates, no explanation needed. 

The room as it was when we looked at the house

Then we used all the furniture from our apartments for awhile...

Then that furniture made it's way downstairs once we got carpet down there and the living room sat empty for months and months.  Until I found these chairs and fireplace on Craigslist and got the table as a Christmas gift. 

And then once again, Craigslist pulled through and I found the perfect couch, and now we have this:

It's not quite complete, I still have some ideas/changes in mind.  But, it's getting there and that makes me happy!

He's here!

Ryker has arrived! He will actually be 3 weeks old tomorrow. But, I've been a bit busy so that is my excuse for taking so long to post :)

He was born on August 9th and weighed 8lb 9oz and was 20.5" long.

He is just perfect and we can't imagine life without him!
