Love the white, black, wood and leather combo in this kitchen! Also, love how the tile extends on the toe kick - makes the transition between the wood more interesting. Typically, I like consistent flooring in open spaces, but this works!

Raised Copper Plant Stand | Dorsey Reno Update

My latest eHow article - how to make a raised copper plant stand, is live! 

Be sure to stop by and check it out! It's SUPER easy!

And a quick #dorseyreno update! We were planning on installing cork flooring in the closet, but at the last minute, I changed my mind and decided to run the hardwood in. Since we bought the house, I was always planning on replacing the carpet with cork flooring - the room was closed off (two small bifold doors) so the cork was an easy improvement. Once we opened up the door to one larger opening - the closet looked like an extension of the room, instead of a separate space, so I really wanted to keep that sight line open.

We were considering putting a threshold down and starting over in the closet, but having the seamless line will look better in the end (even though it's more work). The wood is a little lighter, so we'll be applying a small amount of stain so that it matches fairly well.

SO moral of the story, stop and examine your design decisions as you go, don't just assume that your original idea will work :) Good thing we are planning cork flooring in the basement, so we can use what we purchased there!

Sailing With The Scotts | Recap

Hey everyone! We're back from #sailingwiththescotts! We set sail from Miami, stopped at Key West and Mexico!! Jennifer, Mallory, Emily, Jen, Cassie, and I were invited to participate in blogger panels, enjoy some fun in the sun, and of course, meet the Scott brothers!

They are just as funny and personable as you'd expect!!

There's already talk of Sailing With The Scotts 2016 - so if you'd like to go, be sure to follow Premier Experience

As much as I loved meeting everyone, I also really loved the pretty blue water! 

Big, pretty leaves everywhere in Key West! (Right after we were caught in a rain storm)

Mmm donuts in Key West!

Cute houses everywhere!

Fort Zachary Taylor. 

Is there anything better than clear blue water?

The water was so pretty in Key West when we left!

We loved eating outside!

 In Cozumel Mexico, we took a taxi with Jennifer and Ray to a mini beach resort. It was so relaxing!

The staff was so nice and friendly!

Jillian was there too!! I love her design style!! 

Lug Life was a sponsor of the cruise - the founder were there - I loved hearing the story of how they started!

Hope you enjoyed the photo overload! I'll be back later this week to share a #dorseyreno update  - spoiler alert, I was wrong .. stop by later to see why :)

Today, I'm sharing an update of our MBR closet. Normally, I cringe at showing messy photos like this  (without a pretty after) .. but, renovation is never clean, so I guess that's ok :)

Here's a before of the closet wall. Since then, we've painted the MBR.
