I love little baby man clothes. Now that Reuben has outgrown most of the sweetly gifted clothes from the baby showers, I’ve been looking to create a bit of a baby fall/winter “capsule wardrobe” you might call it. Basic colors, fun designs, and nothing that says “handsome like daddy” on it. You understand right? I really just wanted some plain black, white, and gray bodysuits and accessories. But they were SO hard to find. That is until I finally encountered the following items for a great price. Score.
Haha. I’m so punny. Must have had a little extra caffeine in my coffee today. ;)
The other morning I picked up my house for company and I thought, “why not take some pictures of the upstairs to share with my readers?” I don’t generally take pictures of “unfinished” spaces, but we do so much life up here and I haaaave repainted every nook and cranny, that it may as well be “finished” to some extent. What it’s missing is some personal touches with pictures and shelves, but that just hasn’t been on the radar yet.
Since our kitchen reveal, we’ve had a few requests for a tutorial for our custom floating shelves. I’ve wanted to share, then realized that I’m lacking quite a few process photos and, I’ll be honest, there were two points in our shelf building process where we went “hmm… how do you want to solve that?” It’s true! But I think that is a very real part of Do It Yourself projects (at least with ours). So with that in mind, let us begin! (Michael will be writing most of the following btw.)
We purchased this house back in October 2015. It was built in the last 10 years so everything was structurally perfect with your standard builder fixtures and oak details. When we moved in I was 5 months pregnant and ready to do some extreme nesting, so I painted every wall in every room as well as all the baseboards and door trims.
Alright, if you follow along on Instagram you’ll know that we’ve found new floors! If you don’t follow on Instagram, I’ll share our most recent pictures and then some (from my phone!) here for you! I suppose it’s better than radio silence as a recent friend (– ahem Jaysen–) told me the other day. So let me fill you in on the recent happenings.
