Painting interior doors a dramatic black

Dining room doors
I finally started painting our interior doors. It has been on my list of things to do since before we moved in, and I really wish I would have done it sooner, like before we moved in! Better late than never, they say. Come take a look! I think you're going to be amazed.

What I love and hate about my house after living here a year

Kitchen

We've been living in our new house a little over a year now, and there are some things that I still love and some things I hate. Let me tell you about them.

Repurposed piano bench is now a pet feeding station

Before and After
Having two new kittens has meant rethinking some things we've never really thought about, like where to feed two cats instead of just one, and how to do it in a way that keeps Tia out of their food. An old piano bench proved to be the purrfect solution!

I wanted a porch sign, so....

Our front porch

I'm sure you've seen all the super cute signs people are hanging on their porches to add some curb appeal and make their porches more welcoming. I've wanted one for a long time, but none of the ones I found made my heart sing. It's really hard when you know exactly what you want and what you want isn't out there.

See how I updated our fireplace

Updating with a bit of paint

When we bought our house, one of the things we loved was the fireplace, but we weren't in love with the brass trim on the fireplace doors. Well, I finally got around to changing that and it didn't cost a lot to do.
