Mabey Manor: Kitchen Remodel Reveal

When the kitchen is the heart of your house, you want it to be open, inviting, and functional. The kitchen in Mabey Manor left a lot to be desired in these three areas. A full kitchen remodel was desperately needed. The Old Kitchen You entered the kitchen through a tight doorway, and then you were met […] Read more…

Mabey Manor Living Room Reveal

Mabey Manor: Living Room Reveal

Oh this living room! It pained me for so long because it was one of the first areas guests would see but one of the last we refinished. But now when I look at photos, it makes my heart happy. Candle Holder || Yellow Pillow And although it was never perfect, it sure was fun […] Read more…

Built-in Bookshelf Refinish

Mabey Manor: Refinished Built-ins

When looking to buy Mabey Manor, these built-ins were one of the best parts of the whole house. They had so much storage and were the perfect opportunity to display the china and other larger pieces I’d been collecting over the years. I was so excited about them. When we finally got to this project, […] Read more…

Mabey Manor front entry reveal.

Mabey Manor: Front Entry Reveal

There’s nothing quite like a first impression, right? The first impressions of Mabey Manor were pretty bad. You can see how dreary and run down the house was in this photo. The door still has “abandoned” stickers on it, you can see the shoddily painted floors, the wood paneling, and the barren living room. What you […] Read more…

Mabey Manor Hallway Reveal

Mabey Manor: Staircase Remodel

Welcome back to the Mabey Manor tour! I’m revealing all the changes we made to our home one room at a time. I’ve already shared the girls’ room, the master bedroom, the nursery, and the upstairs bathroom. And while it may seem strange, I’m really excited to show you the staircase remodel today. Yes, the hallway. […] Read more…

Mabey Manor: Master Bedroom Reveal

Today I’m taking you on a tour of my master bedroom (if you missed the Girls Room Reveal a couple of weeks ago, go check it out too!), a completely made over space in Mabey Manor, our 1910 home that we bought abandoned and in bad shape. Once again I’m kind of shocked at the […] Read more…

Moving On

Sometimes I just want to avoid the unavoidable. If i don’t acknowledge it, it doesn’t exist, right? Well, no. It doesn’t work that way, and it’s time to face the music and let you know about some changes going on. I’m having a hard time with the fact that we’re moving in a couple of […] Read more…

Mabey Manor Girls Room Reveal

Mabey Manor: Girls Room Reveal

I’ve been putting off the Girls Room Reveal post (and the rest to follow) for a long time. Partly because I’ve wanted everything to be finished before sharing, and partly because sometimes it’s hard for me to put my home before the world. I have so much to learn, but I only learn by doing. […] Read more…

Life Preserver Gallery Wall

When I was trying to figure out how I wanted to decorate our master bedroom, I started by finding a color scheme that was good for my husband. Since it’s his room too, I wanted something he was comfortable with too. I started thinking about a few things that would be meaningful and unique to us. […] Read more…

Nursery Inspiration Mood Board

While I love to DIY most things, sometimes I just need to gather a little inspiration from other places. Like when I was starting to think about decorating the nursery/guest room in our house. It was an empty room, but I had several ideas I wanted to play with. So I started “shopping.” I chose […] Read more…

Wallternatives Nursery Decor

I love having a beautiful home, but I’m not naturally good at creating one. A lot of the time, it takes me way too long to create an atmosphere that I really like when it comes to decorating a room. But do you want to know one of my secrets? Vinyl. I love the stuff […] Read more…
