Floating vanities allow for a continuous floor, making a bathroom feel larger. When designing our bathroom renovations, I fell for IKEA's floating vanities. They are available in a myriad of colors, including a gorgeous light oak. Beyond a well rounded collection, you can't beat the PRICE! Although, we had to get creative when installing the under-mount sinks.
As we sat on the beach on 30A, I mentioned to Hannah that once my friend Justin and I had driven to NOLA for one day in college. She wasn't altogether surprised, I've always had a penchant for doing things on a whim, but then she stopped and paused: Isn't that like 7 hours away? When I told her it was only 4.5 hours, I saw the wheels turning. Then, she said she might like to see it sometime. Two days later, we were in the car heading to NOLA for a one day getaway.
MPLS is a city much larger, and more exciting than I had perceived it would be. We traveled to western Minnesota for a wedding and decided to schedule an extra day to explore the twin cities. In the twin cities, we found a few consistent things: good eats, better coffee, and friendly Minnesotans!
We are so happy with our wrapped exhaust hood! It is minimal, yet dramatic. We love that it is versatile - we could paint it any color, tile it, or wrap it in wood! We are enjoyed the matte black for now, but may install a tile like this when we are ready for a change! Our followers are often asking what material we used for our hood. It's just drywall! Today, we are sharing how we designed and crated this piece.
I find a lot of inspiration reading other blogs. On of my favorite "types" of blog posts to read are the miscellaneous, weekly post about random things said blogger is loving....a favorite candle, an interesting podcast, a killer Costco find. So, welcome to our "weekly recap" where we basically share random things that have improved the quality of our lives one way or another.
We are about to enter "Renovation Phase 2," where I plan to add some finishing touches to the house. In this bathroom, we replaced the shower, floor, toilet, vanity, lighting, and faucets. I designed this space as a "blank slate," knowing that later, I would add the finishing details. We wanted to get the bulk of the renovating done ASAP so we could live without the dusty chaos. Now that the major items are complete, it's time to add the fun touches like board and batten, wallpaper, and hardware. I've come up with two designs, both transforming this bathroom from incomplete to warm and cozy.
Crater Lake National Park provides stunning views of the richest, deepest, blue water one can set their eyes on. It is no small feat to arrive at CLNP. It's remote location and distance from other populous areas makes traversing this area of the country especially challenging. We stayed in Eugene, Oregon (2.5 hours northwest) the night prior to our adventure. Due to the many wild fires in the region, large sections of the park and surrounding area were impassable, which made for quite an adventure!
