The perfect bedding solution + one of our new favorite things.

We are so excited to share this post with you because it is our latest obsession, and favorite part of Grace’s whole room. Jenna’s husband built the most beautiful day bed with plans from Ana White. We loved the bed so much, but it was a huge hassle to make every day. My toddler could no way do it by herself, because it was even difficult for ME. So basically her bed was never made, so really, her room was NEVER clean and tidy like I would have liked it. It bothered me to no end. Enter Beddy’s Zip Up Bedding. I had just about reached my limits one day lifting and tucking in her quilt when I remembered about zip up bedding I had seen once on Shark  Tank a long time ago. I immediately google’d it and was so happy when I saw all the cute styles available. I chose Chic White for Ms. Grace. The ruffles are just so sweet, and it’s lined with minky fabric, which she is over the moon about.

The best part is the sheets are built in so you just slip on the cover and you’re done. The zipper is really easy to use for her, she loves that she gets to make her bed everyday. Now if I could just teach her how to arrange her pillows just how I like them…. hmm. I’ll  have to work on that.

I just love this bedding beyond looks, my mom sanity has gone up a few notches… and I need every once of sanity I can muster these days. Have you ever thought of zip up bedding? Now we want it in all our kids spaces! It is so great!

Light & Bright Kitchen Renovation Reveal

Welcome to our VERY FIRST blog post! EEK! We are just two girls who like a good house project, and perhaps could be called transformation addicts. We are  so excited to have you all join us as we adventure along turning our houses into homes. We have been wanting to put this blog together for a WHILE & are so excited to finally join forces and collaborate together!

We are kicking this blog off right with a great post about Rylen’s kitchen renovation. It is an amazing transformation that is for sure! You won’t believe how this space looked when Rylen first bought her home, it was dark, not her style, and felt really closed off from the rest of the great room.

We had it framed out to be a large rectangle, and then made to look more like a piece of furniture by adding board & batten detail around. Oh & took out the bar height level. AMAZING. Now it is the kind of island you WANT to gather around in your kitchen.

The granite detail on the island is called an ogee edge & the back surrounding countertops you might notice are straighter & chunkier it’s called an eased edge. I love the added interest the island edging adds to the space.

The barstools were ordered from Four Chairs Furniture. I searched forever to find counter height, tabouret style barstools that wouldn’t break the budget. I was thrilled when I found these, they are great quality, and I think are a total steal! They make the space. DSC_0528 DSC_0521

This little bookshelf nook by the sink is really handy for cookbook storage. Love the little detail it adds.DSC_0519

The sink was replaced with a cast iron single basin Koehler sink, and the gooseneck faucet really adds the farmhouse feel that I wanted.

What do you think? Amazing right?! It went from a dark corner to inviting and one of my favorite features in our house.
