Well, friends, it’s been an absurdly long time since I last posted. Sorry about that. It’s been an even longer time since our last mini home tour.
Between a new full-time position, these two crazy toddlers, and life’s general insanity, certain things have taken a taken a backseat. Blogging has been one of them, but home decor has not.
Our DIY West Elm inspired industrial coffee table is one of my all-time favorite projects we’ve done—and my most popular blog post to date! Our living room has been featured on Wayfair and our coffee table has been featured on Knock Off Decor, Living Room Ideas, pinned on the DIY Bloggers to Follow board by Ana White, and shared on dozens of other sites.
When we bought our house back in 2011 we honestly didn’t think we’d be here longer than the max of four years the army normally allows for. We were surprised and excited to stay here longer than four, let alone the almost seven we’ve now been in our home. So we decided to take the plunge and make some changes we had wanted to make for years—new flooring in the kitchen and entry way, granite countertops, new backsplash, and a little (big) living room revamp that’s not over yet. We’ve really worked hard to make this track-style home feel more suited to our tastes.
