The muddy mudroom redo and reveal has been over a year in the making. Here is how I overcame a mudroom fail, making our mudroom work for us. As I sat down to write this post, I started counting the number of times the mudroom walls have been painted (4); the number of times the […]
Little by little we have been updating the kitchen here in the 1820. When we first moved in, there was wallpaper with birds, and a border to compliment with bird’s nests; dark cabinets and exactly one light fixture that left us squinting at night just to see what we were eating
