Planked Walls – The Easy Way

Planked walls. You either love them or you hate them. Its a trend that's divided the internet and right when you think it may be making its way out the door, BOOM! Someone goes and paints it black, bringing it right back to the forefront of design. If you follow along with my home adventures on Instagram, you'll remember that I was having problems with a wall in my home. It was this wall.

All Hale That Damn Door

Rooms get painted, projects get underway & we temporarily live in chaos (well, more so than normal) but do I ever love the outcome! One of the first projects we did when we moved into our home was to convert our front entry closet into a more useable space, not just for us but for our guests as well.
