Pretty in Blue

I am officially a delinquent blogger.  I just realized I never blogged about a pretty significant house update that took place this summer- oh in like JUNE!!!  We completely updated the master bedroom and bathroom including doors, closet, vanity, furniture, window treatments etc.  Again by we I mean Nick did it all while I was out of town for the week and it was fabulous to come home to.  Because I wasn't home for most of it I tasked Nick with taking pictures and I also don't have a lot of details to share so enjoy some before and after pictures of the rooms.

We still have a little bit of work to do in terms of adding art, etc to the walls and we also want to build a more substantial bed with drawers for storage (which I will do my best to update you on when they happen), but I think this is a huge improvement and just feels so darn cozy!

A Fall Refresh

Yikes...I have again become a delinquent blogger.  We have been busy just living life lately; nothing too out of the ordinary just everyday life and I just forget to blog.  We did recently do a small house update that I think is worth sharing.  Last spring we replaced the front door on the house and the front of our house went from this:

when we moved in
to this:
new door that doesn't match
after a little of this:

Turns out replacing a door is not as easy as it sounds, but we managed to get it done.  After we lived with a mismatched front door and siding for far too many months we finally decided we needed to take advantage of the little bit of nice weather weekends we had and finally get on painting the front door.  In that discussion we also decided to paint the shutters and the trim around the windows.  Nick did all the painting, well all the work really so I can't take credit for that and I think it turned out pretty darn great!  

It was a pretty small project but it was nice to cross it off our list
