Holly’s Kitchen Makeover: Cabinet Knobs

You’ve been hearing me complain about my kitchen and express my excitement for the kitchen makeover. The picture above is what I began with. As with most projects; as you make one eye-sore look better you start seeing new eye-sores. PROGRESS: To date, we’ve painted the walls, completed a countertop transformation, and added a tile […]

Holly’s Kitchen Makeover: Adding a Backsplash {and tips for the first time tiler}

We’ve been doing a kitchen makeover [I’m ecstatic, because I REALLY didn’t like my kitchen]! Here’s what it looked like BEFORE [above]; this is after a new window and after tearing off the old backsplash (which was the same material as the countertop). PROGRESS: To date; we’ve painted walls, installed new window, built a frame […]

Holly’s Kitchen Makeover: Countertops

Note: The Countertop Transformation Kit used for this makeover was provided by Rust-Oleum but all opinions are my own. Our countertops were ugly. And, to make it worse, they were made from the same Laminate that was in my parents house when I was growing up (so I know how old they were!) and apparently […]

DIY Pallet Sign

At my house, you’ll see a trend…we like to incorporate the word “hope” into our decor. Like many projects, I started this project with no specific details in mind; except that I knew I wanted a pallet sign. I had a pallet that I took apart and decided to just start and see what would […]

Kitchen Makeover…at the rental

Where have I been for the past 6 or 7 weeks? Working on our rental….(insert exhausted emoji icon). Three years ago I posted this post on our rental, which at that time, we had just purchased.  We did a fantastic 3-week makeover on it three years ago, rented it out, and didn’t do much to it […]
