Eve & Shiloh’s Wedding!

Posted on August 28, 2015

 

This past winter, my longtime and dear friends, Eve and Shiloh, drove 800 miles from Michigan to Vermont to be legally married. On July 11th, two weeks after love conquered all with the United States Supreme Court’s decision to support marriage equality, Shiloh’s parents hosted a casual open-house to celebrate their union. The day was filled with love, laughter, and delicious vegan food. I felt very honored to have been asked by Eve and Shiloh to take some photos. Here are a few of my favorites.

My House Tour on Design Sponge.

Posted on July 20, 2015

A few weeks ago, the kind folks from Design Sponge asked if I would do a home tour for their Sneak Peak column. At first I was like WHUUUUUT and then I was like YAAASSSSSS but then I was like STRESSSS BARFFFFF. I ran around like a maniac straightening photos, replacing dead plants, sucking up dust bunnies and rearranging my knick-knacks 900 times. All in all, I’m super excited with how it turned out. Everything in here makes me happy and I want to stare at it all day.

Goodwill Detroit (and me) at Eastern Market (again)!

Posted on June 8, 2015

Last Summer I worked with Goodwill Detroit curating items for their boutique pop-up shop at Eastern Market in Detroit and this year I’m back at it! Goodwill Detroit will have a pop-up shop at Eastern Market’s Sunday Street Market, the second Sunday of each month throughout the Summer. Hours are 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. Each shop will be curated by a local Detroit stylist (there are four, including me) and will contain gently used clothing,  accessories, furniture, and unique vintage housewares.

 

Over the last few weeks I’ve been digging for treasures at the local Goodwill stores and I’ve pulled so many great things for the pop-up shop. You can expect to find vintage record players, a metal bar cart, mid-century furniture, several large trunks, handbags from Coach, Fossil, BCBG, and Dooney & Bourke, Polaroid cameras, vintage fiber art, pyrex, dresses from Zara, Top Shop, and Asos, vintage jewelry, designer shoes, men’s vintage belt buckles and so much more!

 

Here’s a sneak peak!

Come see me THIS SUNDAY, June 14th, at the Goodwill Detroit pop-up shop inside Eastern Market from 10-4. If you want the good stuff, come early! Remember, these are Goodwill prices (not fancy vintage store prices) so people line up early. Bring cash, credit cards, and all your fashionable friends!

Bathroom Progress!

Posted on June 5, 2015

 

I made some headway on the bathroom! Earlier this week I painted the ceiling, primed, and painted the walls. I also hung a new towel bar and medicine cabinet. Take a look!

I apologize for the dark & grainy pictures. I’m just so excited the moss green is gone! I think the new gray color compliments the warm tones in the tile and the dark hue adds some drama.

 

We installed the medicine cabinet in the cut-out that was already in the wall from the previous owners but the door just barely clears the light fixture. Eventually I’ll scoot the light fixture up a few inches, but for now it’s fine.

 

Onto the grout. Ugh. We never sealed it after our tile was installed and that was a big mistake. Over the last few years it turned dark and dingy. I’ve heard that baking soda and white vinegar work wonders for cleaning grout so I found a recipe online that called for 7 cups water, 1/2 cup baking soda, 1/3 cup lemon juice and 1/4 cup vinegar. I sprayed the mixture onto the grout, let it sit for a few hours, then scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed with a stiff bristled grout brush. It worked better than I expected! I wasn’t able to get all of it done so I’ll do another round this weekend. Once it’s all sparkly and clean, grout sealer is happening. Live and learn.

What’s left?

  • Paint the ceiling.
  • Prime & paint walls.
  • Hang towel bar & tp holder.
  • Replace cabinet hardware.
  • Replace the toilet seat.
  • Touch up scratches on the cabinet.
  • Replace the switch covers.
  • Scrub grout.
  • Scrub grout again.
  • Seal grout.
  • Paint the door.
  • Replace the door knob.
  • Re-caulk around the tub.
  • Cut, stain, and hang shelves (I bought these shelves and these brackets).
  • Add cute stuff (rug, plants, art, candles, towels, etc).

 

I hope to get a big chunk of those remaining items done this weekend. Wish me luck!

 

Happy weekend to you!
