Sneak Peak of Bathroom Transformation!!

I wanted to share a few before and after pics of the bathroom (which in the end, sold me on the house) we've improved mostly ourselves.  There are still a few things I'd like to completely redo, like cabinets, counter top (there's a lot, thus why I loved it so much), and the backsplash, but it has DEFINITELY come a looooonnnngggg way.  I didn't realize this until I put the before and after pics side by side.  Holy cow. 

I will add a complete post of the bathroom improvement in the future including pictures before, during, and after, my design vision and style ideas, lists of changes, what we did ourselves and what we had professionally done (which wasn't much), and maybe some tips and tricks to help make your improvement go a little quicker.

I'm LOVING my new industrial style bath, thanks to my family!

Lemon Poppy Seed Soap


This bar of homemade, hot process soap is filled with skin loving oils and exfoliating poppy seeds.

The lemon essential oil is said to be super uplifting to the body and mind, improving concentration. This scent is very light and is a great pick me up, especially for those early mornings!

The poppy seeds are a wonderful skin exfoliate that glide over the skin, rather than scratch.

Complete with its own hand stamped packaging and labels.

Each bar is approximately 4.5 oz.

Olive oil, Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Castor Oil, Lemon Essential Oil, Poppy Seeds, Natural Yellow Colorant, Lye, Distilled Water.

Wall Pops!!

So, I really wanted a fun, different, stenciled wall in my living room to kind of match my awesome vintage (SUPER OLD) hand me down chairs. After watching some YouTube vids and tutorials online about stenciling walls, that idea was definitely nixed. Although the walls always looked ahhhhmazing, it looked waaaayyyy too complicated and time consuming for me. So I was on the prowl for something else.

That's when I came across the GENIOUS Wall Pops, peal and stick wall decals! I saw
