Dining Room in the Making

Last week I posted about finishing the basement family room. If you missed it, you can read about it here. After we moved all of the living room furniture downstairs I had a big empty room left upstairs. This empty space is now becoming our new dining room. I really wanted a dining space that was light and bright, somewhere we could gather and enjoy our meal together with friends and family. Up until now we have been eating at the peninsula off the kitchen. Here is the dining room/living room space before we moved in.

Guest Bathroom Update

Today I will be sharing our main bathrooms mini update. Here is a before picture without any updates done. The bathroom is a good size but needed to be refreshed.  Our master bath also had this same vanity top.


The previous owners had updated the vanity, added another sink, and tiled the floor just before we moved in. So we didn't need to do anything there.  


  I wanted to add some shelving above the toilet for extra storage, decorations and to bring in some warmth. I had these beautiful live edge cedar boards that were perfect for the job so I cut them down and gave them a good seal.   


We wanted a blue color for the walls, I choose the color watery. The color sample seemed much lighter in the the hardware store than on the walls. If I could do it over I would have chosen saltwater instead.  

   I'm still looking for a mirror and light fixture replacement but over all we are enjoying this small update. Here's some more updated shots. 


Happy decorating!!
