Room Makeover – Playful Guest Bedroom/ Kid’s Room

Hi everyone! It has been a little while since my last post and in the meantime my blog has had a little work done 😉 and I am very excited about its new look!

Before & After – Painted Kitchen Cabinets

I recently painted the kitchen cabinets for my sister Holly and her husband Craig, and I can’t wait to show you how they came out!
