Finally!!! I can show you part of my house remodel. We spent the largest amount of time and money on updating the kitchen, but I think it was worth all of it! The kitchen is the heart of the home right? And supposedly kitchens and bathrooms give the best return on investment.

Our new house, like many houses, is full of stuff. Some good stuff, some junky stuff. Stuff that needs to find a home. Inspired by vintage metal locker systems I have seen, I decided to build a cubby storage system to hide all the crap we have laying around.

I have been waiting impatiently to share my latest project with you guys! I have a group of some amazing DIY blogging buddies and we like to get together for monthly building challenges. Remember when I built my 3 leg table side table? That was my contribution to the One Board Challenge.

I have some super exciting things going on right now. First, if you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you know that we moved into a new house a few months ago. In addition to remodeling the kitchen, the floors, and workshop area, I have been busy building furniture to fill the rooms.
This year also brings some new collaborations. I have the privilege of being one of the 2016 Brand Ambassadors, representing *Simpson Strong-Tie®. Strong-Tie products are the industry standard in construction. The odds are very good that the home you live in was built using *Simpson Strong-Tie® connectors and fasteners. Anyone who has read this blog knows that I can be a bit of a perfectionist with my builds. I absolutely love the idea of working with a company who also doesn't settle for "good enough". I can't wait to show you the projects I have come up with, utilizing *Simpson Strong-Tie® quality products! Today, I'll share the first.

The new house is. done people! Well, done enough for now. I kinda doubt we will ever stop working on it to tell the truth. No worries, photos coming soon I promise!
So, now that the remodeling is done, its time to start decorating! I've decided I love the look of white walls. Something I've discovered is, if you are going to have white walls, you've got to have some amazing art hanging on them. I've had an idea for a floating frame swimming around in my head for a while. Combine that with a gorgeous art print I spotted on the Minted website, and I'm one step closer to filling my walls.

Have you noticed the live edge slab trend that's going on? A live edge slab is a board of wood that has only been milled on two sides, leaving the the natural curves and imperfections from the outside of the tree. I freaking love them!
