Happy Friday everyone!  We battled a plague (at least it felt like one) this week, and I'm happy to say we've come out the other side alive.  With two kids needing mama and mama needing rest, I kept wondering how on earth will we ever do this with three kids. Like really, how?!  It was ugly, but thankfully, we're back to getting out of the house, … [Continue reading...]

The Grit and Polish - Wilder's Bedroom FLoor Refinish

THE FARMHOUSE This is Wilder's bedroom at the Farmhouse.  It's a space that I haven't shown much of on the blog, and I'm not entirely sure why.  But I aim to fix that.  Over the next two weeks, I'm going to show you how we took this space from dark and carpeted to light and comfortable. This bedroom is the smallest of the three upstairs … [Continue reading...]

Manhattan Nest 3.3.17

Happy Friday!  This week has been a good one.  Maybe it's the hint of Spring in the air after this looong winter or just the pregnancy hormones talking, but I'm feeling excited and energized to take on the flip house.  It took just a couple of days at the flip house, dreaming of what it could be (especially the kitchen!), for me to get very, very … [Continue reading...]

Vintage Find // A Jenny Lind Spool Bed

the-grit-and-polish-wilders-bedroom-fall

It's no secret that I have a thing for vintage beds.  There's just something about them that gets my heart all aflutter.  Vintage beds are undoubtedly my number one Craigslist/vintage/salvage/antique store find and despite already having a hefty collection (see below), I keep adding more.  Garrett would probably say that I just can't help myself. … [Continue reading...]

Happy Friday!  We got the keys to our flip house last week, and we're already planning plumbing routes and purchasing finishes.  It's a beautiful 1900 home with a wrap around porch and original built-ins.  And it's in need of lots of love, of course.  We won't get into the main renovation work until the end of March, but I'm sharing glimpses of the … [Continue reading...]

Happy Friday!  Thank you for the very kind response to our pregnancy announcement on Valentines Day!  Although Garrett and I couldn't be more excited to meet our baby girl, I'm pretty sure we're going to be busy for awhile with a four-year-old and two kids under two.  Growing up in a family of 4 kids, I had two siblings within 15 months of me (my … [Continue reading...]

Next week is Valentines Day and it'll be pretty low key around here, like always.  Most importantly, there will be a cake, which the boys will *help* me bake.  There is something so sweet about the mother-son (and father-daughter) relationship when it comes to Valentines Day, don't you think? Growing up, my dad always gave my sister and I roses … [Continue reading...]
