We are in Charleston and LOVE the preppy beautiful buildings here! That blue ceiling gets all the heart eyes 😍😍😍 I hope we get to see Rainbow Row and eat our way through this amazing city!!! Any suggestions for food here?! #charleston

Huge news on the blog y’all! Mark your calendars! This is gonna be the best thing ever ❤️❤️❤️ #linkinbio @jekyll_island

So many of you asked what we did with the fridge in our last kitchen post. We switched the location of the ovens and fridge so that we could fit TWO for our family of seven. Two fridges and two ovens! #bestdayever ❤️ These are actually two separate units and we just switched the handle on one to make it appear like they are one giant mega fridge 🙌 It’s been the best thing ever because we go through food and drinks like crazy and I imagine it’s only gonna get worse. A lot worse. 😳😳😳

Swipe to see the before! We painted the cabinets several years ago and are still super happy with them! We used @benjaminmoore advance paint.

The fridge and double ovens are from @maytag and there are lots of details on the blog. Just search “appliances” on Bower Power to get all the info. And any other questions just put them right 👇👇👇

That moment when the contractor tears off the new roof in one section of the house because the entire thing isn’t tall enough and you just repeat “Serenity now! Serenity now!” 😭😠😟🤪😢🙀🙈#alwaysseinfeld

Today I had the privilege of meeting one of the sweetest ladies Mrs Susan Brown who gave me a huge gift...copies of everything she has about the Monroe House. She lived there as a child and had so many happy and sad and joyous and simply AMAZING memories of this house and she shared that with me! She even had pictures of the original sale from 1890 when the parcel of land was sold to the trustees of the Methodist parsonage for $225. 🙀🙀🙀 I can not wait to share it all with you!!!

I don’t share this bathroom enough...but the space is seriously one of my favorites in the whole wide house. It gets all the feels....marble, herringbone, a nod to Italy in that art and beautiful lines in that vanity. Plus, @bpatrickflynn actually clipped those roses from my yard and put them on the toilet so that immediately should deserve a double tap ❤️. Let’s just be honest...everything Brian Patrick Flynn touches should get a double tap. It’s only fair.

I’m taking over @rustoleum Instagram account today with some of my favorite stain projects! Also - I give ya a sneak peek of what we will be doing at the @havenconf class I will be teaching with @shadesofblueinteriors ❤️ I’d love it if you come say hello!!! #horsingaroundwithrustoleum #getitthereisahorse 🐎🐎🐎

My daughter is a straight A student with a mastery of violin, watercolor and Mandarin. Her thesis on how to save the world from Global Warming using Solar Energy was recently published and for fun she runs a nonprofit that feeds undernourished children worldwide using drones built from recycled plastic bags. Also she picked up sign language in an afternoon 🤟 #dreambiglittleone

Four out of five smiles ain’t bad 👏 I feel like in general Ella nailed this emoji 😑 #skills #myfivelittlefirecrackers

My favorite before and after of our whole house is our kitchen. It is the one space we live 90% of our lives in and it feels and functions so much better now that it has been Bower-ified 🙌 .

Honestly I had the hardest time adjusting to this house....years passed and I didn’t feel quite “at home” but I think making the changes to this space were very important to making it feel like our safe space. It doesn’t matter how big a house or how glamorous the features...a house can feel like it’s not yours and it might take a long time. But don’t give up and don’t apologize for ever making it work for you and your family. It may not make sense to anyone else but it doesn’t need to...it’s your home! Make it yours!

Swipe to see the original of this space! Seven years and a whole lot of DIYs it is brighter and has tons more storage and loads more function!

Happy Saturday friends! Are you guys tackling anything outside today? Yesterday we shared our weekend warrior project - covering up our backyard chain link fence and finishing it with @behrpaint Quick Dry stain in Cordovan Brown. Thank you guys for all the love on the post! We are so excited to knock this one off the to do list! #linkinbio #thinkoutsidethehousechallenge
