Master Suite Plans

Happy Monday! If you’re in the midwest today you might be snuggled in for the rest of the day like I am. Because #icestorm. So I’m taking full advantage and planning for our master suite. If you’re following along with @everydaymrsblog on Instagram you’ve seen some remodel pics. While I did a lot of updating in our first house this master suite is our first true remodel. I shared a few pictures a couple months ago when we first bought the house (see here). Since then we’ve done quite a bit including painting all the ceilings, trim, crown and walls on the main level. We’ve also switched out the lighting on the main level. But as with most old homes it doesn’t stop there! 

We knew when we bought this house the master suite was a top priority to remodel. The master suite in this house is in the top level of the home, which used to be the attic. So we have angled ceilings and some layout issues to work with. Here’s what it looked like when we bought it:

These stairs come up from the main level in the dining room.

So, what are we planning to do with this space? 

  • demo bathroom wall to increase bathroom space
  • move shower from under angled ceiling to center of bathroom, in front of window
  • new vanities, lighting, flooring in bathroom
  • replace laminate flooring in bedroom with carpet
  • close up 3 cut outs in bedroom
  • install new stair railing
  • install all new trim
  • paint
  • build new bed

Just a rather small list right? #not Right now we are ready for tile in the bathroom and seeing some huge progress. Here’s a little mood board I put together for the feel and look I am going for in this space.

I’m excited to share more of our progress on instagram with you so make sure to follow along @everydaymrsblog and I will of course share the final reveal here!

Hickory Holiday Home Tour

Happy Monday and last week before Christmas! I wanted to start off the week by sharing my holiday home tour at our new home!  I can’t believe how fast the month of December has gone by. It’s been so fun to hae a new home to decorate for the holidays. However, not much of my decor has changed from last year at our old home.

When buying our new home having a prime place to put the Christmas tree was one of my top priorities! I love that it’s able to be in front of the front window and be seen from the street. 

 

I love all the trees in our house of any size!

I set up my little Willow Tree like nativity set in our living room with my favorite Christmas devotional by Ann Voskamp.

I debated getting a different advent calendar from Target this year because they had so many cute ones! But I decided not to and stuck with the same one we’ve had for a couple years.

I love these wood cutout trees I got from a local boutique.

Since we have a different fireplace and mantle this year I picked up this faux antler from Target to hang our stockings from!


And of course I had to update the bar cart for the holiday season! Love these little lowball glass with gold trees I picked up at TJ Maxx after Christmas last year for a $1 each, if you are trying to get new christmas decor hit up your fave stores the day after for the best deals!

The last couple years I hung these snowflakes from our mantle, I decided to switch it up this year and hang them on the window in our dining room. I love the look of how they turned out.

I also got these paper stars from Target last year and chose to make our chandelier festive as well!

Of course I had to share a pic of our tree at night all lit up.

There you have it! Our home is ready for the holidays and I wish I could keep up my Christmas tree year round, our house always looks so sad come January.

Holiday Beauty and Baubles

Stressing about all those holiday parties you have this month? With makeup by Mineral Fusion from Whole Foods and some beautiful jewels by Stella & Dot I have you covered! Did you see my post earlier this week talking all about higher beauty standards? Now that we’ve taken care of our skin it’s time to get to the makeup part!

This holiday exclusive kit for Whole Foods by Mineral Fusion is perfect for the holidays. I’m loving the earthy tones paired with the burgundy/wine nail polish! Isn’t it so interesting that in the time of convenience (cough cough Amazon prime) that as a culture we’re going back to actually wanting products, food, and a lifestyle that’s good for us? Don’t get me wrong there are so many good and awesome things in 2016 but also a lot of stuff that’s bad for us. That’s where brands like Mineral Fusion come in!

This weekend I tried out the Mineral Fusion holiday kit for the first time. Of course I paired some of my new favorite Stella & Dot jewels! I loved how the eyeshadow felt and went on. However, my favorite part of this kit is actually the eyeliner. It’s the perfect shade of brown, it’s just dark enough to be noticeable but not overly so!

Have you tried out any beauty conscious products lately? What ones have you loved or are wanting to try next?
