My mom had to work full time when I was a kid, so my brother and I spent a lot of time together, just the two of us. Summer breaks could become pretty long and once we re-watched Ghostbusters about 5 times, we would break out the board games. One of our favorites was and still is Mancala.

Holy cow guys! It's not even December and most of the houses on our street already have their Christmas lights up. I feel like a slacker! We don't have a tree up, and I haven't bought a single gift yet. Thank goodness for the internet and free shipping!

Plywood Hanging Planter Tutorial

How to make a West Elm knock-off hanging planter from scrap plywood

I love me some West Elm! I hit up their website all the time looking for "inspiration". In fact, I actually just built an 8 ft long console table for my sister that was influenced by a West Elm piece. Although I love the modern West Elm style, I'm not a fan of their prices.

My sister Emily is awesome. Her awesome husband recently retired from the Air Force after twenty years of service, and like many military families, they have made huge sacrifices and have moved all over the world. It's been years since their family had a house they could call their own. They finally have been able to buy a gorgeous new home and settle down close to me.

DIY Modern Master Bath Remodel: Before and Inspiration

Watch how I transform our dated master bathroom with a DIY modern remodel Before photos and inspiration.

I shared my hall bathroom makeover with you guys last week and the response has been great! Thank you guys! I'm glad you liked it. I was able to complete that transformation in one weekend, but I'm currently working on a MASSIVE project that is going to take me significantly longer. 

About a month ago my husband and I started a "down to the studs" remodel of our master bath. It's not been easy friends, but I'm convinced that it will be worth it. Up to this point, we've been working on things that I need my husband's help with (demo, framing, plumbing, etc.) so we pretty much only get one day a week to work on it.

If you've seen any of my recent Instagram Stories, you'll know that we are neck deep in a total, down to the studs remodel of our master bathroom. It's going to be SO good guys! I'm really close to sharing the first part with you. I promise I will have the first reveal up soon! 

In the meantime, we only have one other bathroom in the house, which means my husband and I are going to be sharing the hall bath with my kids for the next couple of months. I decided to give the space a  much needed, quick update. The biggest goal was to cover the walls and make clean-up easier (anyone with little boys knows what I'm talking about).
