Love this post. It’s a great reminder of all of the good content you’ve given us! ????
In February I took down super old wallpaper in the master that was on the top 2/3 of the walls and painted the top 2/3 light grey and the bottom 1/3 a deep tone! I envision board and Barton but the line is about 1-2 feet lower that what you’ve done here due to the fact that the wall was smooth where the paper was and textured where it wasn’t… would this look odd if the boards were much lower? Love thatbwjat you did was what I envisioned!! Just need to finish the work! Thanks.
The salt & vinegar chicken is a family favorite! Question about the paint storage. Is your garage heated at all? Wondering if you’ve ever had cold temps impact the quality of the paint after you’ve stored it over the winter.
So, this is going to sound SUPER weird, but I had a dream last night (or rather a stream-of-consciousness thought before drifting off to sleep) about painting our very dingy-looking 8 year old playset! And do you know whose playset I envisioned it looking like when finished?! YOURS! Weird, right?! Ours is cedar too, but faded from hours in the sun and years of hard playing. We have a green vinyl top, not a hard roof, and no bench underneath. We have a white house with black shutters and this playset sits in our side yard and is visible from the street. Will probably have to wait a bit for Spring to really happen in the Northeast, but… we want to get our short driveway paved this year and our playset sits next to it so I’m thinking all-around spruce up! Also, will be sharing the chicken recipe with my husband!
Come on now, you need to be honest about what it’s actually like to grow rosemary indoors lol.
Ah that chicken is so good! I think that’s going on the menu for tonight
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

We recently painted our study a dark, moody green color. This is after we first painted it a muddy green, then repainted it a blue-gray. I guess what they say is true; third time’s a charm! The journey was worth it, though, because I’m so in love with this glossy green in contrast with the […]
