Simple Breakfast Tacos

I’ve been eating eggs for breakfast for years. Because I love eggs, it’s a healthy breakfast and it’s simple and easy. Sometimes it’s just two eggs plain, and sometimes I add in carbs or veggies. (And sometimes I get really sick of eggs and switch to cereal for a couple days 😜). Years back, I…

    I love this reveal! And I can’t get over how different your before and afters are for EVERYTHING!!!! I’d like to ask about one little detail in the back door pic. I would like to build something similar for our back door, to the patio. Can you share details of the type of wood used, the stain and/or protective finish on it and if it’s just sitting on the patio like a “box” or is it attached somehow? Thank you!ReplyCancel

      Hi Mary – for the steps we used recycled deck lumber (just something my husband had left over from an old job), which we left unfinished. We might add a finish down the road, but I liked the look of it unfinished, and since it was free wood, we just left it as is (we’d probably use something like Thompson’s WaterSeal if we were to finish it). And the steps are just sitting on the patio, they are not attached to the house or anything. Hope that helps! 🙂ReplyCancel

Terracotta Home Decor

I’ve been seeing more and more terracotta/rust hued decor popping up in homes lately. It’s out there bringing a lot of warmth to previously stark white rooms – and I like it! I’m not huge on super colorful spaces but I love that this brings warmth and still leaves the room feeling very neutral. I…

DIY Round Plywood Coffee Table

A couple months ago I shared my living room that was mostly finished. I had been waiting to decide what type of coffee table I wanted for the room and this week I decided to just buy a big sheet of plywood and make one myself. I love the oversized round coffee tables out on…

Spicy White Cheddar Popcorn

I have just recently been introduced to the greatness of making your own popcorn! For some reason, I always thought it would be so much more work to pop my own, and then I actually got kernels, read what to do, and it’s basically just as easy as making the regular old microwave popcorn. Duh,…

    I’m not sure what I love more… the idea of cheddar popcorn (YUM!), or the incredible photos you’ve taken of it!
