Guest Bedroom Update and New Direction

If you recall, about two months ago I wrote a blog post where I shared the design board for our guest bedroom makeover. If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you may know by now that 1. I take much longer on getting rooms and projects completed than I originally anticipate and 2. I often change things around from the original design plan. That said, no surprise, the guest bedroom is no exception.  Today I will be sharing some of the changes to the design plan within the space and also an update where I'm at with the makeover.   Just to refresh your memory, here is the originally design board for the guest bedroom:

Guest Bathroom Reveal

Months ago,  I blogged about the makeover plans for our guest bathroom and today I'm finally here to reveal the transformation thus far in this space.  I might (ok, probably will)  make some more changes down the road, but I thought it was time to do a actual reveal so that I could just leave this room alone for now and start focusing my attention elsewhere in our house and show you other things we have been working on recently.

Supermarket Sign

In our house we have slowly been getting things hung up on the walls. It’s been fun and rewarding to be patient finding pieces for our home that we really love. I first fell in love with the idea of a supermarket sign when I saw it on Fixer Upper in Jojo’s kitchen. I recently found a cute little etsy shop, RBT  Home Decor, who makes lovely rustic and beautiful treasures including a reclaimed wood supermarket sign and I fell in love with it right away.  After seeing that it was 47 inches wide, I knew I wanted to it over my DIY floating shelves over my buffet because I knew it would fit perfectly. I’m very happy with how it looks above the shelves and the love farmhouse charm it adds to our kitchen and dining area.

RugUSA Rug's Across Instagram

If you are on Instagram and you follow other home design type feeds, you may have noticed that many people, including myself, buy their rugs from RugsUSA. They are constantly having sales and always offer free shipping, so it's no wonder their rugs are so appealing! Today is the last day of their Mother's Day sale where they are offering 75% many of their rugs, so I thought today I would share some rugs that some of my favorite Instagram feeds and blogs use from RugsUSA. This is not a sponsored post, I just always see people asking where the rugs are from, and I'm here to today to help you with that answer!

Wall Art Rules to Follow and Break

Since purchasing our first house 8 months ago, Paul and I have worked nonstop to turn this house into a home, as evident by the this blog and all the DIY projects that we have accomplished. The home is where the heart is so our house automatically feels like "home", but in order to make it feel "homey" we have focused on making the space better reflect our style. We have spent 8 months making this house better reflect our style, but the truth is, I can't exactly tell you what "our style" is. If I had to put a name on it, I think I would call it farmhouse coastal, but instead, my style is a byproduct of things I see and love on Pinterest, Instagram, or styles in my daily life that I try to mimic in one way or another or use for inspiration.  Although this is a great way to define "your style" and stimulate creativity, if you (meaning me) take it too seriously or are too concerned on doing things according to the rules it can be quite limiting at times.

My Parents Guest Bedroom Mini Makeover

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that it was as beautiful and warm out where you were as it was here in MI! Two weeks ago I was in Oregon for a week for work, and since I work for my father I stay with my parents when I go out there. Almost two years ago my family moved from MI to OR and since then they have bought furniture for the guest bedroom but they never got around to decorating it. My mom figured me being out there was a perfect opportunity to do a little makeover on it, so we did just that!
