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.

If you've been following me on Pinterest, you'll notice that I've been loving ALL the black walls. When I decided to give our front closet nook a makeover, it was a no brainer as to what color would be on my roller. We converted this closet into a sitting nook shortly after we moved into this house. It's proved to be way more functional for us. Our guest have a spot to sit to put their shoes and boots on, and its the perfect space to[...]

How to turn a chalkboard into a hockey game board

**This post contains affiliate links. Please read my full disclosure HERE** Hey hey! How is it already Friday? I'm late with an update on our room makeover this week. It's been a hectic week of work, hockey, lacrosse, patching, sanding, patching again, priming, patching, more priming, choosing paint... the struggle is real. Tuck wanted dark blue "like our bathroom door" for his room. To find some inspiration I scrolled through Benjamin Moore's Instagram feed and checked out all the different dark blue rooms it featured. So much inspiration! Tucker's room f[...]
