Hi, I’m Becky

For the last 5 years we have lived in our fixer upper home. We’ve done little projects here and there but now we are getting to the good stuff. I’ve always loved interior decorating and had a vision of the potential our house had lying in store.

I hope you follow along with our everyday life and feel inspired to create a space you love no matter where you are.

The Finished Floors

Yay!!! The floors are all done!

Here were my top 3 color picks- these are all Minwax stains. Our contractor advised us not to pick a specialty brand or color because if we ever need to match things up later it might be hard to do. Right when he put them down I knew provincial was out. It was way too red for me. You can't tell here because he sampled on different boards but the 50/50 mix still was really warm and red. The winner was dark walnut!


Now for some before and after pictures.

After- sort of.  In this room I took the picture before they put the second coat of poly on. They had to fix a staining issue so it got finished later than the rest of the floors.

Next project as you can see is installing baseboards and door frames. I'm excited though with how they turned out! They are so smooth and beautiful.
