Baby B’s Soft Boho Nursery

I’m simply obsessed with decorating kids’ rooms! There’s something so fun about childrens’ spaces – I feel like I can go a little crazy with colours, prints and patterns when I work on my girls’ rooms. I made the finishing touches on Baby B’s room this week, and I’m really happy with the finished space. The vibe is soft, a little vintage, and a little bohemian. I had fun mixing patterns and textures in this space.Continue reading

Our Vintage Industrial Kitchen – Now With More Colour!

As much as I love the black and white bones of our DIY vintage industrial kitchen, I’ve been craving the addition of colour in the space for quite a while now.

I was inspired by this photo and this photo and I thought I’d combine the two ideas and make up the steps as I go. Would you like to make your own DIY monogram wall art for your little’s nursery?

Whitewash and Seal a Butcher Block Counter Top

One of the goals for the decor in Our DIY House is to have NO orangey or golden toned wood ANYWHERE. I mean, I think it looks great in some houses, but I find it really mid-90’s-ish and we have it in our current Garage House (because it was the cheapest colour of laminate flooring and cabinets we could find) so I’m getting tired of it.

We are on a very tight budget for our house build (especially here at the end) and we simply couldn’t afford stone countertops. I considered laminate countertops, but I wanted something light coloured for our kitchen design and I couldn’t find a light coloured laminate I liked in our price range.
