Kitchen Pass Through Turned Room Divider

Kitchen pass throughs, aka window-like openings in the wall between the kitchen and dining room, aren’t a common house feature these days. But they can be found in many mid century homes – ours included. While I’m all for keeping quirky old-school details, this particular quirk in this particular house needed some reworking.

Modern Gate DIY

We’ve needed to rebuild our gate for like years. It was water damaged, flimsy, and only hanging on by 50 unsightly emergency screws. It was one of those semi-easy projects that we continually ignored, only thinking about it during high winds when it would bend and bust open. Design indecision really dragged progress.

They totally scream Southern/country to me and I would usually steer way clear of them. But in this instance it seemed like the … More Modern Screen Door

Modern Ceiling Fan

Guys, I know I’ve left you hanging for like years on this one, but we finally purchased, liked, and installed a ceiling fan in our main bedroom! Living the life over here. What the heck took so long you might ask? Well, a few things. First off, I purchased another fan (Hampton Bay Trusseau) and … More Modern Ceiling Fan

Wallpaper!

I wallpapered our dressing room this week. I am so happy with the results but IT WAS THE WORST JOB EVER. Surprisingly, I can’t remember another home project, besides shoveling rocks, that I disliked so much. What I thought would take 2 hours, took ten. These walls beat me down and broke me haha. Maybe … More Wallpaper!
