Full disclosure, I am not a cook. That's to say, I feel pretty unmotivated in the kitchen and spend less than .05% of my week making meals.Read More
Believe it or not, we're rounding out Content's 2nd summer season, hosting guests on Airbnb!
We have learned a lot and from time-to-time receive questions from friends and followers about our Hosting experience. Seems like more and more people are considering opening up their homes, which is awesome to see this amazing community grow!
We thought we'd share our favorite, tried & true, MUST HAVE products for successful hosting. You can also review our full list of Airbnb Super Host Must Haves here.Read More
One of the easiest project you can DIY this Spring is repainting your front door. A fresh coat of paint, on the front door, can help your entry way take on any personality.Read More
The Brussels sprout. Why do I always forget about the Brussels spout? It could be because their technically cabbage, and I really dislike cabbage (unless my Mom is making it for St. Patrick's Day).Read More
This is a blast from the past post, which basically means: I wrote the post a LONG time ago, and for whatever reason, never pressed "publish" for your reading enjoyment. Anyway, I love our wood countertops, and felt like even though the project was completed long ago, the context was still on point for sharing. Enjoy!
For the last year (2016), we have continued to tackle 50 step, complex projects within Content. Somewhere in the spring though, rooms were more or less livable, and those lofty projects gave way to simply trying to finish at least 1 room in the house, 100%.
Funny as that sounds, I cannot with all certainty, claim that even one room in Content is completely done. I think this is the blessing and curse of a DIYer. You get to control the speed of your projects, but you also can procrastinate the hell out of them too.
Just the other day, John presented me with one of these to-do lists for the master bathroom and bedroom. Entitled "FINAL TO-DO" it had all the makings of closure, but what I didn't have the heart to remind him of, were the few projects he had overlooked. We'll get there. No sense in beating a dead horse (house), whatever. Same difference here.
Most recently, John set his focus on finishing the kitchen counter top and back splash. If you recall, John made the kitchen island and counter tops out of large oak slabs.
For sometime we debated the back splash. Should we extend brick along the whole inner wall? Should we incorporate tile? Do we really need a back splash at all?
Debate after debate, we always came back to: Yes, we need a back splash and yes, it will likely be wood. No surprise there.
Happy Friday Everyone! Though we're always excited for the weekend, we are even more excited to share the reveal of the South Street kitchen renovation project with you!Read More
Not every renovation is a total overhaul. When walls are structurally sound, the plumbing works where it is and the layout is functional, sometimes all a space needs is a refresh. That was the case with our client, Susan and Carl's, guest bathroom.Read More
