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.
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!
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!"
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.
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.
