A Toddler Boy Woodsy-Imaginative-Adventurous Room Makeover: The Plans

Tuesday, June 13, 2017

Summer In Style Outdoor Edition: Simple Curb Appeal Updates Reveal with Pike Nurseries

Thursday, June 8, 2017



Hey guys and happy Thursday! We are on day four of Summer in Style Outdoor Edition, hosted by my girl Chic Little House. If you haven't visited the other ladies on the blog tour, then be sure to check them out! All of their links are listed below. If you are visiting me from the blog hop, then welcome! I'm Erin and I like to think of myself as an average wife and mom,  that loves beautiful things, especially home décor. I blog about fixing up my 90's home, adding modern updates and custom appeal, on a budget that works for my family.

I believe that the outside of the home should reflect just as much beauty as the inside, and that curb appeal is super important! When people pull up to my home, I want them to know that our home is inviting and well cared for. So I was super excited to have the opportunity to work with Pike Nurseries on a quick spring refresh for our front yard and reveal it to you all during the Summer In Style Outdoor Edition.

On Tuesday, I gave you a sneak peek into my front yard before my spring updates. Now it's time to see what we've done! It was raining on and off while I shot these photos, but I was so determined to share with you all!


Late Spring Curb Appeal Progress/Updates

Tuesday, June 6, 2017

Hey guys and happy Tuesday! I don't know about you all, but the hotter it gets, the more I get concerned about the outdoor appearance of my home. This Spring, I wanted the outdoor area of our home to be the focus, because curb appeal is so important to me. So I wanted to pop in really quickly and talk about my progress on my curb appeal updates this Spring. As we near the end of Spring, I am really loving the way the front of my house is shaping up. Over the last couple of years, the perennials I planted had not been doing so well, as you can see here.


I Was a Speaker at Pinners Conference!

Tuesday, May 2, 2017

Hi guys! Long time no see. After finishing up the guest bathroom makeover, I literally had to take a mental break. I didn't even want to think about another project during April, but outside of projects, I had a pretty busy month of April. One of the highlights was being a speaker at this years Pinners Conference in Atlanta.



 I taught a class on "Staining, Painting, and Styling: How to Update and Re-Love the Items in Your Home," and to my surprise, my class registration was sold out!
