House Update!

It's been a little over 7 months since we've been converting our suburban shack into a sweet love nest. Insert *awwww* here. :)

Seriously, though. In all honesty it has gone a lot slower than I originally thought it would. Darn HGTV shows... I guess it doesn't take 30 minutes to reno your house. :P

So the pictures that follow show our progress so far. Please forgive the poor photo quality- my camera is out of comission and I've been using Hubsy's older point and shoot. I just can't get the confounded thing to work the way I want it to!

Hopefully our progress reflects our inspiration, which can be found in my last post. Enjoy our blood, sweat, and tears; and feel free to shoot some love, questions, comments, ideas, and suggestions our way!

P.S. Feel free to take a look around the blog. I've updated the layout, my contact info, and our Furry Family's page with some update pics of Mr. Maverick. Also check out what I'm up to with the Burlap Project!! Looking forward to kicking that page off very soon. :)

P.P.S. You can click on the pictures to make them bigger.

I have a pretty major crush on our green curtains. I grabbed them in the store and held on like Rose held on to Jack. Well, until she let him go. Moving on-

I'm so in love with our fireplace. <3

I can't quite reach the top... brainstorming how to get 'er done.

I caulked the heck outta that chair rail! :D

It's still cadaver colored. *gag* All in good time...
I hope you all are having a wonderful start to 2012!! Ours has been full of fun, laughter, and love. I'm looking forward to sharing how God has taught me about perseverance and trusting Him. I also can't wait to roll out some (to coin my husband's favorite synonym for 'great') bangin' burlap projects!

Much love and until next time,


  1. I love it! :) Everything looks fantastic!!! AND I love the new blog background! :)

  2. Thank you Casie!!! It's really encouraging to see the progress. :)
