Heading into the city tomorrow, so having a slow morning today with Winnie - plus it’s been drizzling outside all morning, but I can’t complaint because that means I don’t have to water the plants 🙌🏼 What’s everyone doing this week? Also, what’s new and happening in NYC?! Recommendations are always appreciated ✨

Daydreaming about a master closet remodel this morning ✨ I was up all night doing a bunch of research and drawing out plans for the closet I will “someday” have hopefully 💕 While doing so, I discovered the show @castlerockhulu and if you need something new to watch on @hulu I would definitely recommend! You can head over to the blog via the link in my bio to see the top 10 shows I recommend right now ✨http://liketk.it/2wXoN Screenshot this pic to get shoppable product details with the LIKEtoKNOW.it app #liketkit @liketoknow.it @liketoknow.it.home #cwchome #hudsonvalley #home #homesweethome #homeinspo #seekthesimplicity #livefolk #vscocam #lifestyleblogger #fblogger #rva #DIY #NYC #darlingmovement #love #wanderlust #exploretocreate

{swipe for before} today’s project was chalk painting the staircase railing ✨ Most contractors don’t refinish the railing because it has so many tiny details that you’re better off just replacing it, but since there wasn’t anything wrong with our railing I knew I would figure something out to make it work just the way it was 💕



I was inspired my mother-in-laws staircase, which she had painted black and it looks SO good with the tile in their foyer so I decided to paint ours, but once again I wanted to DIY it while it not spending 40+ hours on 👍🏻 •


The Solution: @anniesloanhome chalk paint! It’s the same paint we used on the cabinets and the best part is that you don’t need to sand or do a ton of prep to use it 🙌🏼 I used graphite, which was a dark gray color, and then I went over it with black wax for the finish 🖤 I love the wax because it’s easy to work with but also durable AND it’s not super glossy - it’s more of a satin finish which I really like ✨



Now, what to do with the space? I’m not very good at decorating so send me ideas please 😊

{swipe for the before 👉🏻} We only have a few more touch ups left, but I was too excited to wait because once you see the before you’ll understand why I couldn’t wait to share!


6 months ago we closed on our house and the first thing I did was start painting the cabinets. Fast forward and we now have all the tiling complete (just needs to be cleaned now), the floors have been refinished and stained, and our appliances has been installed 🙌🏼 I’ll be sharing details on the blog in the following weeks that go through everything we learned along the way so stay tuned! Happy Sunday y’all :) •

We are exhausted, but we finished the kitchen - tile, microwave, etc. My feet ache, my shoulders are sore and hopefully I don’t have to tile anything right for another 26 years, but it was totally worth it ✨ I’ll share pictures tomorrow, but tonight I’ll leave you with some lovely blooms from the @airbnb we stayed in a few days ago 💕

The floors are finished, the appliances are (mostly) in place and tomorrow we will probably spend the entire day moving furniture and doing chores, but honestly, who cares about what the house looks like when it’s nights like Thursday that are the most memorable to me - the nights where we don’t leave the house, cook together and stay up (literally) all night with tiny naps in between and then walk to our favorite breakfast spot, drive around the Catskills for 5 hours just to find the best creek and then sleep in our garage for several more hours until we can finally walk on the floors - exhausted from sleep deprivation, but we just keep going because we are always so excited and motivated when it comes to building our life together 💕



It’s nearly 11pm and I am just now laying down FINALLY to write and post this and I wouldn’t have it any other way 💕 I’m obsessed with my life and every girl should find their Chance because everyone deserves to be so ridiculously happy that you can’t even put the feeling into words ✨ Seriously, he does all these chores around the house for me and I just thought, “Wow, this guy really likes doing chores,” until the other day when I told him to stop doing chores and hang out with me and then he admitted he actually HATES chores but was just doing it all for me because it made me happy 😭 I’m obsessed with him, I love him so much 💕 Hope everyone has a great weekend ✨

We are staying in the CUTEST @airbnb this week while they finish up the flooring in our house - I just have to say, huge shoutout to @oaktreehwflooring for being outstanding! If you live in the #hudsonvalley look them up! I can’t wait to see the floors when they are all said and done ✨



Side note: extremely disappointed in @samsungus who sent a delivery crew that refused to install our appliances, like what kind of customer services is that?!?!? I would highly recommend ordering from Lowe’s or Home Depot if you’re considering going with @samsungus because their customer service is SOOO sad. I’ll be sharing all the deets in the blog later this week and how I should have known better after horror stories from two close friends 🤦🏻‍♀️


Anyways, thanks to everyone out there who is a good, decent person!!

I woke up today suddenly craving fall and wanting to camping 🍁 Part of me thinks it’s all that we have to look forward to this fall and part of me thinks I am probably just getting really sick of this warm weather 🤷🏻‍♀️ I’m already planning for thanksgiving though lol ✨

The current state of our kitchen. There’s no one else I would rather through this dusty, dirty, chaotic renovation with than Chance because he is more patient and easy going than I ever could be 🖤 Living through renovations is stressful and crappy. It’s such a double edge sword saying that because we are totally getting everything we want, but it’s hard and frustrating and stressful to be honest. I’m so grateful that we are able to have our dream house, but trust me it isn’t all rainbows and flowers all the time. I’m ready to be done, counting down the days 🗓


We are constantly shuffling between Virginia and New York, between home and hotel, between hotel and @airbnb, between cities and it’s exhausting. We’ve never been on a real vacation together, we work opposite schedules and both of our jobs heavily rely on us meaning we both usually work 60+ hours EACH at a minimum and yeah it sucks sometimes ✨


Things don’t always go smoothly and there’s a lot of coordination involved, like trying pack all of your stuff and get the laundry done because you know you won’t be able to go back home until the stain dries, but the power to the washing machine has been cut off somehow and resetting the breaker box doesn’t fix it - I mean, give me a break...I am SO looking forward to next weekend and being done with this for good...until our next project lol, but I think tackling the floors is the biggest and most inconvenient thing we have planned thank goodness! 💕🖤 Major probs to people who live whole house renovations 🙌🏼

Not much else to share about the floors until Monday, but now that we’ve added hardwood in the master closet, next on my list is tackling a closet remodel 💕


Swipe to the evolution of our closet so far, from when we toured the house to ripping out the carpet ✨ Our closet isn’t HUGE but i’d like something like in the first picture that I found on pinterest because there is so much wasted space right now 🤦🏻‍♀️

Staying in a hotel would be a whole lot more fun if we were on vacation somewhere like in London ✨


I’m submitting my passport documents soon because it’s been more than 15 years since I last had one! I’m ready to explore the world and visit this pink restaurant 💕

{blog post} Kitchen Update linked in my stories y’all for the latest on our kitchen! •


Now picture it with stainless steal appliances and dark floors 😍 I’m hoping the floors are finished by Saturday or Sunday and then appliances arrived Monday FINALLY! We never purchase a microwave because we figured we would wait until we updated all the appliances and I never thought I’d even care about not having microwave, but when you just want to quickly heat up your coffee or rice that was in the fridge it really makes you want one haha 😂
