Downton-Meets-Farmhouse Kitchen Wall (feat. decor from Gordmans!)

You guys, I'm about to share the most neutral I've ever gone with a room. Ever. So over our Christmas/NYE break, we removed wallpaper, repaired plaster walls, and painted our kitchen . 

Kitchen Inspiration: Homey, Neutral, and Vintage

Our kitchen's mini makeover is nearly complete. Wallpaper down. Plaster repaired. Walls painted. This weekend, I'm putting some initial decorating touches on the space. (For me, spaces and decor are always  evolving.) I can't wait to share the big reveal with you guys. This is the most neutral I've ever gone in a room, but you can bet that it's not all white and gray and brown. ;) In the meantime, I wanted to share a few kitchens that I found on Pinterest that ended up serving as a source of inspiration—whether it be borrowing colors or brainstorming decor details. Together, ideas from these kitchens sum up what I want my kitchen to be: Homey. Functional. A nice nod to the vintage feel of turn-of-the-century kitchens. A little farmhouse action—since we're in rural Iowa, after all. And some bits of color brightening up an otherwise neutral space.  

Win the Season 3 DVD of #BroadCity

This giveaway is now closed.  Click here for more contests . With the holidays over, winter starts to feel especially dismal. Am I right? Cold weather, dreary skies, icy sidewalks—all perfect excuses to stay inside and binge watch.  Courtesy of Comedy Central, I'm giving away the new Season 3 DVD of Broad City, plus a $25 VISA gift card—consider it spending money for snacks for your Broad City binge-sesh with friends. The DVD is available in stores now, but this is your chance to get a FREE copy! 

10 Ways to Use Grove's New Caddy (and how to get one for FREE!)

I'm a storage freak . Give me your wire baskets, fabric bins, and wooden crates—there's always something for me to put in it! G would probably love a nickel every time I gasp and say, "I could store something in that!" 

Start 2017 off lovely with a FREE Fresh Start Kit from Grove

I don't know about you lovelies, but one of my 2017 resolutions is to really whip this house into shape. That doesn't just mean peeling wallpaper and painting walls (though there's plenty of that to do), but it also means keeping it spic and span. And who's going to help me? Why, Mrs. Meyer's of course.

Kitchen Makeover | Part I

When we got this house, I really thought I'd have sooo much more  blogging material. And as a matter of fact, I do. I've just been short on the blogging time . So allow me to apologize for blog posts being so few and far between for the last few months. Good stuff is coming, I promise. We spent the summer and warmer months of fall focused on the the exterior. And we're devoting our winter to giving the interior a facelift. That mostly means: peeling wallpaper, fixing plaster, and sealing / priming / painting the walls.
