My Main Street Makeover


It’s too late to turn back now….. I believe I’m falling in love❤️This 1600 lb beam is being lowered and the roof has been raised! I can’t get over how spacious this once cramped little second floor is.


My Main Street Makeover



Construction or rather deconstruction is underway. My husband still doesn’t know we bought this house….No, he does….Yet still hasn’t stepped on the property since the first day he saw it and turned ashen (not in a good way).

The framing for the kitchen and the foundation for the new master is currently being poured and prepped.

Next up: We’re raising the roof (literally)!

My Main Street Makeover


It’s everything I said I didn’t want in my next house…except smaller.

I was searching for a rambling 60’s ranch; minimalist and simple, with a breezy, California vibe and little to no land.

But sometimes house hunting, like life, is what happens while you’re busy making other plans.

So here we are, the surprised but excited owners of a charming 100 year old antique cape on 1+ acre of land; and about to embark on a restoration and renovation adventure. It’s not quite what we were imagining, but somehow it just feels right. We’re in love with our new, old house and can’t wait to turn it into our new home.

I’ll be sharing weekly updates from the front lines of my Main Street Makeover~so while you’re waiting for the next episode of Fixer Upper to start, check in here and check out how it’s going.


No-fail ways to spruce up your space

To add style and create depth in a room, there are two no fail approaches that will amp up any space.

Greenery adds such dimension to a room. Michael’s crafts and NDI are two great resources for stems and greenery, both real and faux. There is something so refreshing about gorgeous trees in a woven basket or large banana leaves in a beautiful vase – they breathe life into a space and can accentuate the beauty of the pieces around it.

In addition to greenery, anything woven (i.e. baskets, rope, tribal hats (particularly hanging on a wall)) add a lot to a space. The texture and sculptural aspect bring warmth and interest into the home.
