I’m Sarah.

After graduating college, I worked as a TV news reporter at an NBC affiliate outside of Chicago. I then retired from that life to be a stay at home mom to my three little ones. While at home I was able to rekindle my love for decorating and crafts. A blog seemed like the perfect place to share those ideas. There is inspiration everywhere, I hope you find some here.

Some Before and Afters

Some Before and Afters

Danny had Friday and Monday off from work so we were able to finish some projects around the house. The first is our kitchen.
Before... right when we moved in.
After...
Now we didn't just make these transformations over the weekend. The first thing we did a while ago was add a dishwasher, change out the hardware on the cabinets, new back splash, new counter top, new sink and faucet, new tile floor. Then most recently we added the bead board and molding above the cabinets, trim around and on cabinets and the pendant lights above the sink.

We also re-tiled our front entry way.

Before...
After...
I actually used the 1/8 inch stick on tile. You use real grout so it still looks like regular ceramic tile, but it is so much easier because we could just put it over our existing linoleum floor. And because it is not ceramic, you can just cut the edges with a matte knife which is way easier and faster. The grouting process is still the same.
We also fixed up our guest room but I am still working on a mirror for the room, so I will post that before and after tomorrow.
