Make A Statement // Accent Walls

Howdy friends! Today we’re wrapping up the Make A Statement series. 

On Wednesday I shared my Bedroom update. I painted an accent wall behind my bed and it makes everything else pop! LOVE! If you missed it, you can check it out HERE.

Of all the ways to make a statement in your space that we’ve explored the past couple of months, painting an accent wall has to be the simplest way to get the biggest bang for your proverbial buck! Both money and effort (though painting is not always easy, especially when you have to move big furniture and you have a bad back lol, oopsie). I know a lot of folks are not a fan of doing accent walls, and I don’t think they’re right for every space. But if you’re feeling like your room is lacking a little somethin’, somethin’, maybe it’s needing some contrast!

House Tour Update // Bedroom

Hello friends! I’m back on the blog today to share a recent update to my bedroom.

Drumroll please…I painted an accent wall!

First, a little backstory: when I purchased the paint for my bathroom and powder room makeovers back before I had even moved in, I wayyy overestimated what I needed and bought a full gallon. I used about half of that (and I even painted the inside of my coat closet too!). And over the past year or so I have toyed with the idea of adding an accent wall behind my bed. Conveniently enough it just so happens that the leftover paint I’ve been saving is one of the colors in my bedroom color scheme. No brainer, right? So, I finally pulled the trigger, and I’m loving it! And I still have a lot of paint left haha…

I first shared the full Bedroom reveal back in February (if you missed it, you can check it out HERE). I still have a couple of design projects to do, but until then, are you ready to see the headboard wall before and after?

House Tour Update // Stairway

I’m baaack! I’m popping in today to share a little house project/update I’ve been slowly working on for a couple of weeks and just completed (this morning). I finally hung that gallery wall I’ve been wanting to add to my stairway! Hooray!

I first shared my stairway in my Powder Room to Laundry house tour post (HERE). There wasn’t much to see then, and I still have projects on my to do list, but I’m happy with the progress so I wanted to post an update for you all. Shall we?

Make A Statement // Stenciling

Happy looooong holiday weekend (if you’re in the USA)!! Woo freakin’ hooooo!!! I SO needed this long weekend lol…

So, this week on the blog I was SUPPOSED to share my Dining Room/Area update. Which was SUPPOSED to involve spicing up my built in credenza by painting it with a black base coat, and then using a stencil technique to make it look like it had bone inlay. But if you read what I actually posted on Wednesday (HERE), then you’ll know I did no such thing.

Make A Statement // Painted Furniture

Hello friends! 

On Wednesday I shared my Kitchen update. I finally painted my island cabinets! Woo! Have been wanting to do this FOR. EVER. (or at least the last four years since I moved in, lol) and… I’m on the fence about it! Haha, I mean, I think I love it? Or I will learn to love it. I do like it. If you missed it, you can check it out HERE.

House Tour Update // Kitchen

Hello hello! Another Wednesday, another blog post! As I recently shared, I’m making some design tweaks to several of the spaces in my home, and I’ll be sharing them here on the blog over the coming weeks. Last week I revealed my Entry update (you can see it HERE). And the week before I shared the updates I made to my Outdoor Spaces (you can check that one out HERE).

Today I’ll be sharing the reveal of my Kitchen update! I’m happy with it… or at least I think it will grow on me more and more. You tell me what you think. I’d love to hear! If you missed the original full Kitchen tour, you can get up to speed HERE.

Make A Statement // Wall Treatments

Happy Saturday my lovelies!

On Wednesday I revealed my Entry makeover! Did ya see it?? If you missed it, you can catch up HERE.

You can make such a huge statement with a variety of wall treatments, from faux brick (like me) to real brick, to stone (faux or real), wallpaper, molding/trim work, paneling, etc. A lot of these options are going to be fairly permanent statement solutions, but if you’re afraid of commitment, you can definitely do a temporary wallpaper instead and achieve that wow factor just the same!

House Tour Update // Entry

Happy Wednesday friends! If you’ve been reading the blog recently you’ll know I’m making some small updates to my home that I’ll be sharing over the next few weeks. Last week I shared an EPIC post about the updates I made to my outdoor spaces (if you missed it, you can check it out HERE). Apologies if you’re still recovering from that!

Today’s post is a quick one (promise!) with the reveal of my Entry update! You guys, I love it! It’s not perfect (mantra: progress, not perfection), but it really packs a punch IMO! If you missed the original Entry tour, feel free to refresh your memory HERE.
