How to Build an Extra Wide Simple Dresser

How to Build an Extra Wide Simple Dresser (knockoff PBK Kendall Dresser)

Today, we've teamed up with the amazingly talented Ana White to share how we built this extra wide simple dresser. This may look familiar, you know, the ridiculous expensive Pottery Barn Kids Kendall dresser that is oh-so cute (but not so much the price tag--$900...ouch)!  We met Ana at Haven two years ago and have remained friends ever since. She is the sweetest most humble lady I know. And her husband, Jacob is a charm too. He's been at Haven both years and Jon and him hit it off immediately. … [Read more...]

How to Install A Ceiling Fan

How to Install A Ceiling Fan

We live in Florida. So what does that have to do with installing a ceiling fan?  It's a must that every room has a ceiling fan. Most northerners don't hike up the heat and the winter and the same goes with Southerners we don't keep our houses ice cold in the summer time. It's just not cost efficient. When we started brainstorming about the nursery I looked high and low for the perfect ceiling fan for the nursery. That's when I stumbled across the Cool Vista Damp Oil-Rubbed Bronze Ceiling … [Read more...]

How to Add Additional Cabinet Space to Your Kitchen

How to Add Additional Cabinet Space to Your Kitchen

Today, I'm back to share another kitchen revamp update post. When we were planning our kitchen project, I had mentioned to Jon that I really wanted him to cut out the two sides that backed up to the corner and extend out our cabinet. I knew that our builder did not utilize the space properly (remember, we bought a foreclosure, so this was way out of our control). I knew that I had almost a whole other cabinets worth of room that had been blocked. So as soon as Jon removed the formica countertops … [Read more...]

I love using stencils and I adore Amy, so I agreed to give her new stencil line a try! I received the Mod Podge ® Rocks! Peel & Stick Stencils - Tangier stencil.

How to Refinish an End Table with #3MDIY

This post is a collaboration with 3M DIY. Early last year, our neighbor, Edie, came to us asking if we could help her refinish an end table. We told her yes, but then project after project (and pregnancy) got in the way. We made it a resolution to ourselves that we were going to refinish the end table for her birthday (which was last Friday)! We picked it up in the morning and brought it back to her by the end of the day. She was amazed at the drastic difference and said it was her best … [Read more...]
