Farmhouse Shabby Chic Laundry Room Renovation

Welcome Back to my Blog!
Today's post is so exciting and totally different. HOME RENOVATION PROJECT!? Cody and I have so many projects planned for our home. We moved into our home September of 2016, and since then we have been doing so much to our home. We started with doing a DIY Back Splash in our kitchen, (total Success.. I no longer have before photos or I would post them..) we had a patio and fire pit installed in our backyard, we also had a fence installed, and are currently finishing our basement!

Future Plans include: (Obviously finished the basement and DECORATING!) Possibly Baby Room Projects/Makeovers, Pantry Makeover, Installing Built-in Bar/Office area in our kitchen, and possibly some bathroom upgrades!

As for today's post: DIY Laundry Room Makeover

Of course I thank Joanna Gaines for making shiplap famous! I, like most people, am so obsessed. I wasn't sure how it would turn out so the Laundry room was a trial run. 

How Cute is this Sign?! So this is one that is based off of the one from Magnolia Market Shop Online. I loved it, but wanted it in white. I started searching around Etsy and Found this one: Teal Barn Signs. (It comes in multiple shades and I love the framing!) 
I was so impressed with the company. The sign came packaged beautifully and the quality is incredible!

Before installing the shiplap and shelving there was just a wire shelf and rack.. pretty basic!


So what we used for the shiplap was something called Tongue and Groove. We bought an unfinished pine material. (This made the ship lap appearance without having to use spacers to space out the wood. I will be honest I do think I would use plywood it is way easier to cut and customize because the plywood doesn't need to lock in.) The Tongue and groove does have its perks though:
  • You DO NOT need to paint the back wall! you can pain the spacing between the boards making it so easy!
  • No Spacers. This saves so much time.. the boards just click into each other like a puzzle. SO SIMPLE.
  • The Tongue and Groove we bough has 2 different sides. You can do a larger or smaller sized shiplap. (If you look closely, we realized this after the wall was intact. One of the boards is reversed. OOPS!)
As for the Color I used to paint the Shiplap (AKA Tongue and Groove).. Sherwin Williams Alabaster was the perfect color!

..for the shelving we bought pine lumbar and added in a giant folding area on top of the washer and drier along with 2 shelves. We used Oxford Brown Stain. We only did one thin layer of the stain in a semi transparent and finished it with a coat of polyurethane to protect the shelving.  

Baskets: Target

We bought the black metal hardware for the shelves from our local Ace Hardware. These are way over priced online. In store they are under $10 each. 

And for the rod that is holding our hangers..
my husband bought galvanized piping that was pre cut to the size I wanted. He primed and spray painted the piping black and it was perfect!

Okay the wall color.. I struggled to get our entire house color matched. This color was suppose to match but it was a fail (No one can match it...). I tried to find something similar and Benjamin Moore Balboa Mist is similar. 

Ironing Board: Target

I think I covered almost all of the details! If you have any questions leave a comment down below! I am loving these home renovation projects. 

More renovation updates coming soon!

Layering with an Anorak Jacket

Details: Jacket Similar to: (Nordstrom's), Maroon Hoodie Similar to (Nordstrom's), Distressed Denim Similar to: (Francesca's), & Booties Similar to (Nordstrom's)

 One of my favorite pieces I picked up this fall was my anorak style jacket. This style jacket has been around for years, it's a classic that never goes out of style. I linked one similar that I found at nordstrom's and it's on sale! (Literally my entire outfit is from Francesca's, if you check your local one they may have these pieces in stock!) 

My lifestyle is so hectic. If I am not wearing scrubs (For my mammography/x-ray career) or all black(as a makeup artist) , I typically prefer to be as comfortable as possible!

When I saw this feminine style hoodie, I was obsessed! I linked one similar that I found at Nordstrom, but it's almost double the price! I highly recommend looking at your local Francesca's to see if you can find it on the racks there. I love the high low cut and the maroon color is perfection. I did size up to a large for a more oversized look..

I am the pickiest person when it comes to my denim! I struggle finding affordable jeans that are comfortable. Francesca's Jeans are incredible and so affordable. They often run the promotion B1G1 1/2 off.. Can't beat it!

I love the trendy distressed denim, especially around the ankles! The distressed around the ankles is a newer trend and I'm obsessed. Does distressed denim scream high school? My hubby thinks so, but I can't get enough of it! What do you guys think?

Hello cute booties.. 

..finding ankle booties that don't draw too much attention to my thicker thighs is difficult. These are a dream! I recommend sizing down with these types of booties. They have a flared loose feel to them, and can look bulky if they are too large. 
My local Francesca's had them in black and I am debating on picking them up! These are my newest favorite pair of shoes.. It's like slipping on a pair of sneakers, but a bit more dressy!

Next Post I am sharing a easy Holiday look that is so simple! (I will also share some details on my favorite Red Lip Look.)

Love Always,

"Farm House" Christmas Decor

Christmas came early in the Glass house! I am so thankful to have a hubby who gets as excited about Christmas as I do. (He even baked Gingerbread Cookies the day we decorated!) 

So every year I post details of our Christmas Decor and I get SO MANY questions about my decor. I was thrilled to post this blog!

This truly is the most wonderful time of the year!

Tree Details: Christmas Tree Faux Virginia Pine (Target), Tin Tree Skirt (Crate & Barrel), Star (Crate & Barrel), Tin Train (Similar to Hayneedle)

As for the tin sign, mercury glass ornaments and tin feathers they are from my FAVORITE decor store: Cocalico Creek Country Store. They only have 2 locations, but they ship to you! You can call their store and ask for the similar pieces and they can ship it to you. 1 (717) 490-6599. (If you are somewhat local I recommend making a trip to their locations, and plan on spending a ton! My husband and I try to go every other month and always leave with a car filled with their unique pieces!)

If you click the home tab at the top of my blog you can see my every day decor that I purchased from Cocalico Creek. By far my absolute favorite store of all time!

For years I have hunted this tin train down! Every year I can find a similar train at my local Homegoods. Check their often and grab it when you see it! It's one of my favorite decor pieces. I always wanted a little train to wrap around our christmas tree, but could never find the perfect one until I saw this one!

Okay, so I have to be honest. Cody, my hubby, gets all the credit for the ornaments. Our first year in the home he said to me, "I really want a themed tree." He is responsible for finding our mercury glass ornaments and the new leaf ornaments we bought this year (Cocalico Creek Country Store still carries these ornaments. They were in store recently when we were shopping there.)

When we have children we will do a second tree to display all our Hallmark ornaments. For now we love our classy themed tree!

I have no idea where I bought these pinecones from, but they would be super easy and cheap to make! Pinecones, Glue, and some glitter! Easy Christmas DIY project that could also be fun for children too!

I still can't get over this star! It retails for less than $20 at Crate & Barrel. Usually the store is super pricey but this is such a steel! (I will say that it was the biggest struggle getting it to stay on the tree and straight!)

Fireplace Details: Letters to Santa Mailbox (Target) & Stocking Holders (Kohl's)

As for my mantle, I just used some affordable greens from Micheal's Craft Store. They always run sales and coupons! I used the same type of greenery for my stair railings and for our outside decor. 

So, I think we all have been hearing/talking about the new Hearth  & Hand Line from Chip & Joanna Gaines that has launched at Target! I am so impressed with the line. I picked up the "Letters to Santa" Mail box. It comes in both Red and Green. 

The stockings are another new purchase from Cocalico Creek Country store this year! they have a silver tinsel woven into the stockings. 

 The stockings I have hung on the railing up the steps are a few years old from Homegoods. (Which is also another favorite place to get home decor! I get all my christmas wrapping paper from Homegoods!)

There was so much to cover in this blog post, and I didn't even share all my Christmas home decor! Check out my main channel or my vlog channel to see a Christmas Edition Home tour or extra footage of our house!

Merry Christmas,

Favorite Affordable Striped Dress

Details: Dress (Nordstrom), Cardigan (Similar to Nordstrom's), Booties (Francesca's), Jewelry (Francesca's)

The struggle is so real for me to find dresses that fit my figure and are still comfortable. This dress is absolutely perfect, and it is under $60! I hate when dresses hug my thighs so I ordered this in a size up from my original size. I love the high low scooped detail at the bottom of the dress. It comes in a variety of different colored stripes.

These booties are my favorite. I have posted them before but I can't get enough of them! I wore these for hours shopping and they are super comfy.

It's starting to feel like fall weather.. and soon Christmas! To make this dress a little more appropriate for this time of year, I paired it with this slouchy hunter green cardigan. The site I purchased from no longer carries this exact one but I found one similar from Nordstrom. Oversized cardigans are one of my favorite trends right now.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post!

Next week I am looking to post some DIY Home Renovation Projects along with a Christmas Decor post!

Ponchos for Fall

Details: Poncho: Check out this Super Cute one! (Nordstrom's), Black Top: My FAVORITE! (Nordstrom's), Leggings (Nordstrom), Boots (LLBean)

Ponchos are one of my favorite accessories as we move into the colder weather! Nordstrom doesn't currently carry this particular poncho anymore, but I linked one that I am totally obsessed with! I also found some great poncho's from Francesca's

Ponchos/Capes make dressing up so easy! I threw this over top of a basic black t-shirt and some comfy black leggings. SO SIMPLE! (I linked some of my favorite basic pieces!)  
Did I mention they are super warm and cozy!?  

Okay.. So let's talk about these boots!
Everyone Needs a pair of Leather Brown Boots. They pair well with everything. I love mixing these in as a pop with an almost all black outfit. I purchased these from LLBean. Their quality is incredible, and everything is made here in the states. They just brought them back again this year!

I am loving these outfit post for the fall time! If it isn't already obvious, I am fall obsessed!

I hope you all are enjoying my post as much as I love writing them!

Go-To Fall Workout Attire

I probably wear workout clothing the majority of the time, which is way more often than I should. There is just something about these leggings that are SO COMFORTABLE! These are definitely a splurge, but well worth the hefty price point! Scroll down for all the details..

Details: Green Top: (Lululemon), Vest: Similar to (Macy's), Leggings: (Lululemon), & Sneakers: Similar to (Under Armor)

I have been drooling over lululemon workout gear since I could remember. Everyone would rave about their leggings and their unique bra designs. Finally I cave. About 2 years ago I found a lululemon outlet and purchased my first pair of their leggings. I have been hooked ever since!

So the black pair of leggings I am wearing I have purchased recently and was able to find the exact pair. The pockets on these leggings are my life savor (4 of them to be exact). I love the mesh design inside the legs, it changes up the typical boring black legging.

I bought my Hunter Green Lululemon shirt at their outlets, but I linked the same style from their website. The sleeves and the torso are both made longer, which I love!

As for the vest, I love a fitted workout vest to run around in post workout or for taking walks. This is so light weight and can dress up your basic fitness attire. 

Of course when I saw hunter green sneakers at the Under Armor Outlet, I snatched these babies up! Hunter Green is one of my favorite colors to wear, plus these sneakers were on super sale! I paid less than $40. Steal! I love a good deal, especially on running sneakers that I tend to go through twice a year!

Always hit up the outlets for any workout attire! They always run huge sales. 

So obviously this outfit isn't super fancy, but I wanted to share with you one way of dressing up even the most basic workout attire. Layering is always a go to for me!

Let me know what you guys  think of the workout post! Definitely something newer for the blog, but I really enjoyed sharing this post with you guys!
