Are your mornings crazy like ours? We added this custom framed corkboard for a second command center upstairs - it's been a game changer! Especially in the midst of our current chaos. 😂 More in a new post on the blog 📌📋 #michaelsmakers #michaelscustomdecor #makeitwithmichaels #brandpartner #whbs1910house

Oh how I missed this glow! 🎄 Are you ready to decorate? I'm really not 😂 but our kids are! The girls and I put up this little tree in their room last night. We are going to add glitzy details (at their request 💁🏽), but I'm loving this simple, snowy look! See our past trees here: #cmaswithwhbs ❄️ #whbs1910house

More bedroom progress! And more heart eyes. 😍😍😍 We added the wood in our closet too, see it in my story. Next up this week - caulk and paint! What do you think, did we make the right choice with the planked ceiling? #whbs1910house

So 👏🏼dang 👏🏼 excited 👏🏼 for this #plankedceiling! The grid of furring strips is going up first. Our house is 107 years old and the studs are all over the place. This will later help give us something to mount the planks to. Thank you hot pink dropcloth for adding color to my feed. 💕😂Would you want to try this in your room? #whbs1910house #fixerupper #oldhouselove

It's official. Doug just went to the store for tongue-in-groove pine and we're doing our bedroom ceiling 🎉😍 Special thanks to my brother-in-law @heasboy who answered "NO" on my poll about the ceilings yet still agreed to come help us 😂😂😂 (photo from one of the other rooms) #whbs1910house

Fall colors and shiny floors. 🍂✨Did you get your extra hour of sleep with the time change? Surprisingly, we did. 😌 For all you with littles who did not, I'm giving you the two finger Hunger Games-style salute. May the nap odds be ever in your favor later today. ✌🏼In other news, we may be picking up some tongue in groove pine today for a certain room we've all been discussing lately... 🎉#whbs1910house

Here's a flashback to our #whbsgrayhouse! I would go weeks without sharing anything, I struggled to find something pretty in the midst of our every day. Entire rooms were never or barely shared, including our kitchen! By the time it was finished, we were hustling to move. 🏡 Our #whbs1910house home is far from perfect - we are making progress, yet have purple walls and cracked plaster. But it's home - warm, cozy, and filled with the people I love. It's teaching me to be thankful for what we have, have patience with the process, and embrace imperfection. ❤

Struggling with the desire to raid your kids' candy? Go stock up on super dark chocolate bars and thank me later. 🎉🍫 Here's my new favorite room in the house - our 4th bed/office/nursery. Our bed is in here while the master is waiting to be painted, and I'm loving the bright walls and planked ceiling. And the floors, duh. 😍😂 Do you think we should do the ceilings like this in our bedroom, even if the project will then take longer? #mypoorhusband #whbs1910house #fixerupper #oldhouselove

Today I said to myself "You don't have enough to do.. with Halloween tomorrow and All Saints Day the next (#catholicschoolkids). Sure you just moved back in after major renovation... forget the laundry and piles of displaced crap. WHY DON'T YOU PAINT YOUR FRONT DOOR AGAIN?" 🙈😂 I regret nothing, lol. What do YOU think, the mossy green or the blue? I'm a big fan, the blue was fun but I think this works better. And I'm not painting again. 😂🌿 #whbs1910house

Radiators are all hooked up and fixed, their steam heat feels nice and toasty. Tonight we're putting beds together after 3 months of mattresses on the floor. 🎉💃🏽I'm still so amazed with how these floors turned out. I knew this house could shine, I just didn't realize it would shine this much. 😍 #whbs1910house #fixerupper #oldhouselove

In case you thought I was playing it too safe with our wall color choices... 😜💕swipe for the before! Our girls had a pink room in the old house, here we're keeping it neutral but going with bold accent colors. It'll go nicely with our pink chair from this room: #whbsplayroom! 💕😍 color is Krylon Mambo Pink from @michaelsstores, #michaelsmakers #makeitwithmichaels

Here's a peek at the finished floors. 😍 We decided to refinish the 107 year old original pine without knowing how it'd turn out. (Thank you, @janelle_ellesalon for planting the idea in my head!!) We pulled up multiple layers of carpet, tile, paper backing. Layers of paint were sanded down. They are just floors, but they kinda draw a comparison to this current, messy chapter of life. It's been tough. This house is teaching me to have patience and trust the process, choose faith over fear, let go of imperfection, and above all, choose to be grateful. #whbs1910house

Meet our master bedroom! 😍 It has a walk in closet and these two great windows. The floor will be finished later this week, we'll paint soon after that. This weekend was a busy one - we're all moved out of the 2nd floor! Watch my story to see where we're sleeping until we head to my parents. You'll see I can't keep up with posting our progress. 😂🛠#whbs1910house

The stairs under the carpet were in great shape! 😍💃🏽 (See my story for more views of the space.) Next week they'll finish the upstairs floors. Since there is a bit of wear, we'll have the treads match the floors and landing (sanded + poly, no stain), and leave the risers and railings dark. Maybe one day we'll add white, but I'm not ready to paint the dark, rich color! I'd love to hear your thoughts, what would you do? #whbs1910house

It's officially fall in our backyard. 🍂💛🍁 her little blonde pony tail has me all 😍. Are the leaves changing and falling where you live?
