Saying Goodbye to our Sweet Magnolia

BlogHouse1

Its been almost 8 months since I last posted on the blog! Where did the time go?!

It went to deciding to sell the house, my husband getting a job in Charlotte N.C and me packing our beloved home in-between of being a single parent to Estella.

It was so hard to leave… and really hard to say goodbye to the house we put so much love and elbow grease into. I remember the day we closed on the house, I was standing in the front yard taking it all in and seeing Ian and Estella dancing in our new empty house. It’s the house that Estella made her transition from baby to toddler and had most of her firsts. All of the birthday parties, baby showers and mommy wine nights. It’s the house where I felt Ian and I finally mastered marriage and became a great team.

So while I sit here in our temporary home in N.C, I’m remembering our sweet magnolia and hope she is doing fine.

Bathroom Renovation – Vanity

Vanity1

We started our bathroom renovations about 6 months ago and although we figured it would be completed within 2 months, we quickly realized that having a toddler has only allowed us to work on it little by little on the weekends (if we’re lucky.) Even though I hate to admit it, another reason why the bathroom has taken so long is because I have a perfection problem, (thanks mom) and will look at something a 100 times before making a decision. This is what happened with the bathroom vanity. There were a few I loved, but of course the ones I loved came with a pretty price tag. Since we are paying cash for the whole renovation (and still have another bathroom to complete after this one) I had to somewhat choose between a super expensive vanity which would lower my budget for other things and I was already pretty confident in those items.  So since my beautiful expensive vanity was out of the question, I showed pictures of the ones I wanted to my handy husband who built one for me instead. It was a win for him because he was able to do what he really loves and I was able to order the expensive lights and other fixtures with the money I saved!

Vanity1

Since we are splitting one bathroom into two, we will have little storage so he built me a shelf on the bottom to hold baskets.

Vanity3

The sink is Kohler and the faucet is American Standard. Both were purchased at Home Depot.

Vanity2

The hardware is Martha Stewart which was also purchased at Home Depot.

Vanity5

While I had initially planned to paint it, Ian was able to get poplar wood (which is too beautiful to paint) and he made me promise I would stain it instead.

I used Minwax stain in Early American because it worked well with the gray floor.

I really love how well it turned out and am so excited we don’t have to brush our teeth downstairs anymore! Hopefully I will have a completed master bathroom to share within a few weeks!!

Antique Vanity Rehab

Friends on my Facebook and Instagram pages are aware of my obsession with buying old antique furniture mainly from my “Ooops I Did It Again” post. These pictures normally consist of me driving down the road with a too big for my car piece of furniture hanging out in the back and a “I cant help it” look on my face.  They mostly all resemble this..

10956752_10153247650574394_7427629454011577173_n

Or this..

11069398_10153199905239394_1779791860732910241_n

Whatever.. its my life. I’ll do what I want.

So I couldn’t resist when I was in Titusville shopping at one of my favorite antique stores and came across this beauty.

20511_10153124377839394_3541662188277972093_n

Although a little rough, this piece has so many great things about it like the condition, the ridges along the top drawers and its on casters! After sanding it and priming it, I pulled out my trusty paint gun and applied 3 light layers and finished it off with a clear poly.

Kitchen Hardware Update!

Our kitchen is by far my favorite room in our home and what convinced us to sign on the dotted line for our Sweet Magnolia. Thankfully, the previous owners had just completed a full renovation on it and we only needed to make minor cosmetic changes like light fixtures and such. We switched out the stained glass pendents over the counters for black farmhouse lights and I fell in love with the pop of black in the white kitchen. Loving the touch of black, I decided to add black hardware instead of the brushed chrome that the previous owners had installed. I felt confident in my decision until I priced the new black hardware and realized that my husband would kill me so.. I went to Home Depot and bought some black spray paint for metal. Now let me just say that I am not a fan of spray paint. AT ALL. I feel like I don’t have control, always  have drips and I just hate it. However, I found if I take a deep breath and just do many light layers I can tolerate it.

Here is the before picture of our kitchen with the chrome hardware. Yes those are dirty dishes in my sink…Oh the Shame.

1011708_10151662214199394_488542122_n

While I think the chrome is nice, it was just a little bland.

And here is the after photo with all the lovely black knobs!

11825767_10153515718604394_7795458465706195341_n

I must admit that I’m happy that I went out of my comfort zone with the spray paint and really thrilled with how it turned out!

Holiday Tour of Homes

We were thrilled when asked by the Sanford Historic Trust if we would showcase our home for their annual Holiday Tour of Homes! Although there are still many things we want to complete on the house, we thought it would help motivate us to start some small projects and to meet our neighbors. It was a whole lot of work getting the house ready but we enjoyed the experience.

Big Girl Room

Saying goodbye to Estella’s nursery in our old house was really hard when we left the city. Actually, leaving the house that we brought Estella home from the hospital to, the house she learned to crawl in and the house where we celebrated many firsts was difficult. I decided when we moved into our new home Stella needed a new big girl room. The room was already painted a soft cream color so I painted some white scallops at the top of the walls and we purchased a big girl bed. Hopefully someday soon this room will become a new nursery and Estella will move into an updated big girl room. Until then, she is really enjoying her space.

We also have plenty of space in the new house for Estella to have a playroom downstairs. It is so nice having all of her toys in one space!

Estella’s Nursery

When I found out I was pregnant with a little girl, I couldn’t wait to start on her nursery. I think we tested at LEAST 15 pink paint swatches on the wall before finding the perfect vintage pink for her room. Most pinks were too bright or too bubble gum pink. Not being a big fan of the color pink, I had originally planned on painting her nursery white or a soft gray, however, after looking at many pink inspirational photos of vintage pink walls I was sold. After many attempts, Behr Italian Villa won my heart and was exactly the right shade of pink.

Our Magnolia

After years of renting in the city and having a little one, we decided to buy our historic home in a small town. Its located far enough out of the hustle and bustle of the city which we love. When we bought the home, we were told it was built in 1915, however after researching the house at the city museum, we found the first public record was in 1901. Being a mother to a 13 month old has allowed me to only tackle small projects so far, but I’m really looking forward to getting my hands dirty. I hope someone can find inspiration from this blog…. and maybe not have to swatch as many white paints as I have!
