Our Dining Room Reveal

April 6, 2021

This was the year I resolved to add more color back into our home, and the dining room design is as bold as they come. Since this was a shadowy room, I played off of the moodiness. I knew this would be a space we will share many family meals and birthday dinners, so I wanted it to be fun as well as timeless.

I love how paint alone can change a room. We are working on each of the kids’ rooms in phases, and once Chiara’s was done I was able to start on Rocco and Max’s room. We used just about everything from their old room, and wanted to stay under $500 for any updates. A tour of what we came up with!

Kids Easter Basket Ideas + Easter Books

March 24, 2021

Kids Easter Basket Ideas

ONE // TWO // THREE // FOUR // FIVE // SIX // SEVEN // EIGHT // NINE // TEN // ELEVEN // TWELVE // THIRTEEN // FOURTEEN // FIFTEEN // SIXTEEN // SEVENTEEN // EIGHTEEN // NINETEEN // TWENTY

We keep Easter baskets pretty simple around here with a few inexpensive fun items or books and some sweets for each kiddo. I rounded up some of our favorites if you need some Easter Basket ideas or Easter book ideas for kids! All linked below the images.

A few notes:
1) Resurrection Eggs – My sister sent these to us a few years ago and I love how it gives little ones touch and feel visuals to go with the story of Easter.
6) Rocco, Max, and Veronica (ages 5, 7, and 9) all love these fossil eggs! Easy to split up into baskets.
14) Non-messy air dry foamy clay (I cannot do slime.), and they come in a big pack so another item I am just splitting these up into the younger kids’ baskets!

Installing + Re-surfacing Hardwood Floors – Process, Cost, and Stain Used

March 22, 2021

White oak flooring - resurfacing floors

One of the bigger projects we had planned for in this home renovation is resurfacing the first floor hardwoods! The floors are over 20 years old so there was some warping, fading, and peeling. We got a few estimates from flooring contractors based on referrals (always get a first hand experience rec!), and was able to find a good quote for what we were looking for. This post details the process, pricing, and materials we used as well as what we used to install similar hardwoods in the upstairs bedroom.

Chiara’s Nursery Play Room Tour

March 17, 2021

nursery design

We started this room design last summer, and thought we would be able to whip it up in a jiffer. (How humorous of my optimistic self.) I have come to appreciate slow paced changes in our home this past year. Every corner seems to have a backstory, and some more entertaining than others. Nonetheless, we are happy to welcome you in and give you a tour of Chiara’s (Cheech the peach) nursery/play room…

Colorful Shared Bedroom Plans for 3 Girls

February 25, 2021

bonus room

When we found this house at the last minute, we kept an open mind with what we could change to make it more functional for our family. Most homes with a “bonus room” are used as additional lounge space in the upstairs, but we will be converting the room into a colorful shared bedroom for the girls.
