Home Tour

My house is a constant work in progress, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Check back often for updates.

I am elated to have finally purchased our first couch. You can see the hand-me-down couch we started with here. I can’t get over the detail on the brass coffee table I found for $30.

The ice bucket is a souvenir from our trip to Prague.

The entryway door was originally white. It took some adjusting after we first painted it to realize the door was in fact closed at night.

Mikasa Reggae Plates

After searching high and low for a black glass chandelier, I had one custom made from a seller on Etsy. Little did I know until it arrived from Italy that I would have to wire it and assemble it myself… Worth it.

Dining Room:

Our dining set was passed down from Anthony’s parents. See the 90’s glory that used to cover our chairs here, before my mom and I recovered them.

The Martha Stewart book is signed and was a present from my sister for my bridal shower. I purchased the Mast Brothers Cookbook at South by Southwest 2014, when they were doing a book signing at a local Austin restaurant.



The alphabet chest is one of my favorite pieces in the house.  I thought I might tire of the green stripes I painted in our archway, but I still love them!

Green and Copper Dining Room

A few of the plates are antique stores and thrift stores, a couple  are from Anthropologie, a couple more from Gracious Home, and the translucent green glass one is from my friend Caitlin’s wedding. I intend to continue to add to the montage.

The ombre barstools were a quick-fix DIY.

The wall paint, and the nightstand makeover made a huge difference.

The DIY ticket-stub-filled-lamps have been wonderful for corralling tickets from all sorts of events.

Anthony had the patio furniture when we got married, but it was sun-faded and weather-worn. After sanding, staining, and a coat of polyurethane, it looks new! See the restoration process here.

Other than paint the cabinets, swap out the hardware and hang crown moulding, the kitchen hasn’t been updated or decorated. I’ve got big plans for the the future though. New countertops, backsplash, and lighting may come in the next year or two, and new appliances sometime after that. New flooring is on the dream list.

Laundry Room: 

The laundry room was the first to get painted. It, like every other room, started beige. The cabinet was moved from the guest bathroom and extra crown moulding from the kitchen filled the gap.
