wowza! that was a big project. We’re thrilled to be sharing the final tour of our Dexter House with you today
I’ve been meaning to paint the Dexter House’s front door since we bought the home 5 years ago…
we finally replaced the door that’s given us so much trouble (who remembers when an Airbnb guest threw a rock through it?!) and we’re thrilled with how it came out

Well it happened, we had our first Airbnb horror story. Ugh. Garrett and I have been landlords for almost a decade and Airbnb hosts for 3 years now (at the Dexter, Ravenna, and Bryant houses) and this was the first event that has really raised our blood pressure.

Today we’re rewinding back to 2015. We were living in the Ravenna House and trying to buy the Dexter House, which was a short sale. When I wrote this post (in January 2015), we were stuck in the middle of the closing process and there was no end in sight. Quite honestly, we were half expecting the entire transaction to fall apart.
Back in 2016, we remodeled the original bathroom at the Dexter House for under $1000. Yes, $1000. Somehow I’ve avoided showing you this space for the better part of 3 years, despite knowing these are the kind of makeovers you guys usually love. So today I’m finally sharing how we updated this bathroom on such a small budget.
We recently added a new cabinet to an old cabinet box at the Dexter House (during our kitchen refresh) and I was surprised just how easy it was. After receiving lots of questions about the process, we decided to put together a DIY. Read on for this easy tutorial plus a video.
I always love beautiful white bedding. It’s classic, inviting, and (to appease the mother in me) easily washed. But with Spring in the air, one sometimes wants a little more in the bedroom. More color. More pattern. More life. So we teamed up with The Company Store to transform a classic white bed into one that’s patterned, colorful, and fresh for Spring. Read on for our favorite tips for adding color and pattern to your own bedroom.
