Half Bath Inspiration

We currently are in the midst of renovating two areas in our home.

I literally spend hours planning and searching for inspiration and product and I thought I would share some of my inspiration (and a few things I've purchased) for our half bathroom.

The half bath was the original pantry in the house, and was converted to a bathroom at some point. It's very awkward, layout wise, as it  has two large windows and the exposed pipe for the heating system, but no actual heat.  (I'll be sure to share before pics soon.)

This room also serves as Figgy's bedroom, so it needs to accommodate his litter box, food and bed. He's always been obsessed with sleeping in his cat carrier, but I'm hoping we can get him something a bit smaller but still covered.

Anyway, here are some of my favorite things for a half bath reno...

Mantel Update and one of my Best Thrift Score Finds Ever

Happy Thursday!

I've been trying to get these pictures up here for the last several days to share with you all.

Last week, I blogged a couple of times about Halloween projects and decorating (links at the end of this post), and several of you reached out to me asking when/why did I paint my mantel from black to white.

Let me explain mantel update five or six...sometimes it just takes a while to tweak something just perfectly, and since my home is where I can experiment with d├ęcor and design, it's not a big deal to me.

Incorporating Furniture with Meaning into your Home

Welcome friends!

You all know that I love furniture, and as someone who refinishes and paints it professionally, there tends to be a revolving door of pieces coming through my home.

I will quite often bring a piece in and won't be able to part with it for a bit.  Because I have such a influx of furniture I never really become attached to pieces. In fact, when we moved to the farmhouse two years ago, I barely brought any furniture with me.

However, there is a desk and chair that gives me the I would never sell/You're stuck with me for life, vibe.

Budget Friendly White, Black & Gold Halloween Table

Welcome everyone!

Yesterday, I shared a super simple white chocolate dipped apple treat and a little glimpse of my Halloween dining table. I'm back today to break down the table step by step and answer a couple of questions.

White Chocolate Dipped Apples

Happy October!

If you are anything like me, you love everything fall. Although its been unseasonably warm here in New England these last several weeks, I've been bringing in touches of the season into our home.

Today, I want to share a really easy twist on a candy apple (which is a staple around here this time of year)!
