In my career, I’ve literally walked through thousands of homes. One of the ever interesting perks of that is getting to see the creative things that people have done to their house. Every once in a while, I’ll come across something I haven’t seen before that makes you go, “Wow! That’s really cool!” Continue reading “Cabinet Covered Spice Rack Pull Out”
Easy DIY Fishing Rod Holder
Living in a coastal town, it seems as though everyone has at least one fishing pole. Being that we are surrounded by the Ocean, Intracoastal, and River, multiple fishing rods are not an uncommon sight in garages during showings.
Offshore fishing is one of my favorite hobbies, so we have several that we use for different types of fish, locations, etc. But how do you keep them organized? Continue reading “Easy DIY Fishing Rod Holder”
Ditch the Dining Room and Opt for Office?
How many times do you eat in your formal dining room? Every night? Every Sunday? Every…. Thanksgiving?
At my Mumsie’s house, nearly every family meal is eaten in her dining room (aside from her bacon and iced tea breakfast).
On the flip side, I can honestly count on one hand the times we’ve sat at our table. I even set it for Christmas last year and everyone still congregated in the family room instead.

Pool From Start to Finish
Ever wonder what a pool looked like being built from start to finish?
Once I said “goodbye” to the beautiful travertine backsplash in my once traditional kitchen, we needed to find a comparable replacement. I had a very specific color in mind for the backsplash in my Coastal Kitchen renovation. Sea glass green, but not sage, with a hint of blue, but not turquoise. And I wanted it to be glass. Totally easy to find, right?… Continue reading “Glass Backsplash”
Coastal Kitchen Renovation
I feel like approaching your thirties causes you to sit back and begin to truly self assess who you are as a person. What do you want out of life? What do you enjoy doing with your
spare time? What is your style? Coming into six years of being in the same house, I finally decided to do a complete overhaul on our home- beginning with the Kitchen.
Diaper in the Washing Machine
Getting ready for a Closing the other day, I thought I’d be proactive and get some laundry going before it was time to leave. I grabbed the baby’s hamper, tossed everything in the washer without hesitation and went about my merry way.
34 minutes and delicate cycle later, the familiar sound of Schubert’s “Die Forelle” signifies its time to switch the clothes to the dryer. Continue reading “Diaper in the Washing Machine”
Granite vs. Quartz vs. Marble
Not too long ago, advertising granite countertops in a home for sale was a HUGE selling point: “Kitchen boasts GRANITE countertops!” YIPPEE!
Once the gorgeous stone picked up traction in the design world, nearly every new build home or renovated home had granite somewhere- kitchen, the master bath, or the guest bath (more often chosen first because visitors would see it before they’d see the master).
Nowadays, you’ll see more homes having other stone and solid surface material countertops such as Quartz and Marble installed.
But what’s the big difference? They’re all just rocks …right?
Here’s a brief breakdown in some differences between the three top stones.
Retiling Shower Floor
Let’s get one thing straight- tile should never have a bounce to it. Ever. One day while taking a shower, I noticed a little spring in my footing. Chalking it up to perhaps an extra pep in my step from getting both babies in bed early, I didn’t give it much thought. A few days later, same place and time, there was an audible *pop*. Hmmmm…..
