Cozy & Beautiful – The How to Decorate Handbook

Good morning, sweet friends! The current state of the farmhouse is pretty chaotic as I’m slowly transitioning our fall decor into the holidays, so I wanted to share something really exciting with you today. Have you ever wished there was a handbook that perfectly mapped out how to decorate your home? One that could tell you how to find the right style for your home and family? And where to start and how to stop wasting money on the wrong things?

The Cozy & Beautiful Handbook was created by my dear friend, Shannon Acheson, and after reading through it the past couple weeks, I think this handbook is exactly what we’ve all been searching for.

Kitchen Makeover – Demo Day!

Our little farmhouse kitchen got a BIG makeover! This week I’m talking about the demolition of our old kitchen, the new layout, and ways we opened up the space… you can catch up on the rest of the kitchen makeover series here!


First of all, let me just say a big, heartfelt thank you for all the sweet comments I received from you guys on our kitchen makeover reveal post last week! I read through each and every one of them and couldn’t help but get a little teary eyed at the amount of love and support we received. Now that you’ve seen what our kitchen looked like BEFORE the renovation, I’m sure you want to see how we got to the AFTER, right? As Chip Gaines would say… it’s DEMO DAY!

Farmhouse Kitchen Makeover Reveal

Our little farmhouse kitchen got a BIG makeover! This week I’m sharing the full reveal of our new kitchen… you can catch up on the rest of the kitchen makeover series here!


 

This kitchen renovation has by far been the biggest undertaking in our farmhouse, both financially and physically. But after months of dreaming and planning, weeks of construction, weekends painting, and the last week of our lives cleaning and decorating… I am so proud to share our finished kitchen makeover with you! With as much time and work as we’ve put into it, I can honestly say that it was worth every penny, every inch of construction dust that has settled all over the house, and every day we spent without a functioning kitchen. Since the day we moved into this house almost 4 years ago, I have always pictured a beautiful, white kitchen that is the heart of our home… a place where we gather to bake cookies and do math homework and enjoy Sunday dinners together. But most of all, I’ve longed for the day that Jeremy and I sit could together around the breakfast table next to our big, sunlight-flooded windows, enjoying our first sips of coffee together each morning as we gaze out towards our backyard and our family’s farmland. The beautiful farm that my husband spent much of his childhood playing on and the farm that we want our children to grow up knowing, learning about, and loving as well…

As promised, I’m not making you guys wait another minute to see the full reveal of the kitchen, mostly because I just can’t keep it all to myself any longer! If you haven’t seen our kitchen “before” photos yet, I highly suggest you start here first. It will make this transformation even more dramatic, trust me! Over the next few weeks, I’ll post all the details of our cabinets, tile, appliances, etc. so feel free to leave a comment with any questions you have, and I will answer them all in the posts to come! But for today, let’s just enjoy all the pretty photos…

Welcome to our beautiful, new “modern farmhouse” kitchen!

Kitchen Makeover Plans

Our little farmhouse kitchen got a BIG makeover! This week I’m sharing “before” photos of the space and our plans for completely renovating the kitchen … you can catch up on the rest of the kitchen makeover series here!


 

The day is finally here, my friends… I’m kicking off our big, huge, super exciting, highly-anticipated Kitchen Makeover Series!!

See our plans for turning this dated, dysfunctional space into a gorgeous, modern farmhouse kitchen! More photos and details at LoveGrowsWild.com

We started planning this makeover last summer when I first found out about the book deal. We had always kicked around the idea of remodeling our kitchen at some point, but after we accepted an offer to write a book all about decorating our farmhouse, we decided it was time to kick our plans into high gear and get the job done. Jeremy and I are used to tackling most projects ourselves, but we knew the kitchen would be a massive undertaking, and with the book deadline just a few short months away, we knew we had to bring in some help.

We went through Lowe’s for part of our bathroom remodel, and I was super pleased with their customer service, so we decided to go with them again for the kitchen. They have a project specialist who worked one-on-one with us to plan the design, help us pick out products, order everything we needed, and organize the entire project through to the end. She set us up with a PHENOMENAL contractor, and they got started just after Christmas.

But before we get to all the fun makeover stuff, I suppose we better start with “the before”, huh? Brace yourselves, guys. This little farmhouse kitchen was in desperate need of a makeover! And I apologize in advance for the quick, poorly-lit photos I had about 5 minutes to snap before the sun set on the night before kitchen demolition started. If you haven’t read the post I wrote about prepping for our kitchen reno yet, I recommend you stop there next!

So let me take you on a little tour of the farmhouse… [Read more…]


Christmas Home Tour Part 1

My favorite time of the year has finally arrived! I love sharing our little farmhouse all dressed up for the holidays, and this year was especially fun with all the remodeling we’ve done to the house. When I decorate for Christmas, I like to keep things simple, natural and super cozy. Warm, fuzzy blankets on the couch… wreaths in windows and on doors… and TONS of greenery throughout the house…

We had so much fun decorating the farmhouse over the last few weeks, and I hope you enjoy seeing a peek inside and find some ideas to inspire you! I have so many photos I want to share that I’ve broken our Christmas Home Tour into two parts. You’ll get to see our front porch, master bedroom, and newly renovated bathroom today, and Part 2 of the tour will come in just a few more days!

I’ve included links to some of the products and projects in our home tour, so you can shop for these items too! Note: Some of the links in this post are affiliate links, which allows me to make a small commission from your purchase, but your purchase price stays the same. Thank you for helping support our blog!

Our tub was in bad shape, and the entire bathroom needed a major refresh. We started with a complete overhaul of our tub and shower by Bath Fitter, which you can read about here and here. Then we ripped up the old flooring and added a beautiful mosaic tile (details here). The next week we added a planked wall treatment and a new vanity and did LOTS of painting (details here). And now I am SO excited to show you our beautiful new farmhouse bathroom!

FYI: If you want to know where we found all the items for our bathroom, I’ve included a source list at the end of the post!
