Installed Cabinets

Happy Fourth of July everyone! I was scrolling through Facebook today and looking at all the...more

Cabinet Beginnings

One of the main ways we are saving huge amounts of money on the kitchen is by building our own cabinets. Way back when Adam and I were dating (as teenagers about 14 years ago) his family ran a custom cabinet shop. They built the cabinets themselves, which means that my handy husband isn’t new to this whole cabinet building thing ....more

Designing a Kitchen

Alright, it’s time to start talking about the kitchen in the new house. We’re moving in just over a month, (because we sold our old house! In a day! ...more

Eric and Kelsey’s Budget Living Room Makeover

Most of you know that Better Homes and Gardens is one of the main sponsors of Domestic Imperfection. Every other month they send me a Walmart gift card, then I incorporate some their products into a project I’m working on and write a post about it. So for my June post they e-mailed to say that they were going to send me a bigger gift card than usual and wanted me to makeover my living room ....more

Painted Interior

A couple of months ago (how has it been that long already?) I wrote a post about choosing interior paint colors for our new home. All those vertical paint samples...more

Interior Limestone

When designing and planning this house Adam and I knew we wanted a lot of rustic features inside our home. Metal ceilings, antique beams, shiplap siding, brick flooring, rock walls, and rustic wood ceilings and floors were all things we wanted to incorporate in one way or another. We particularity wanted an entire rock wall on one of the walls in the main living space ....more

Life and Pregnancy Update

Hey everyone! SO sorry I fell off the face of the earth right after dropping that pregnancy bomb, my computer died and has been in the repair shop. I tried to get it fixed through Apple, but they quoted me $500 to get it working again…which I just can’t/won’t do ....more

Boys + Bluebonnets = Four (obviously)

If you live in the Texas hill country, springtime bluebonnet pictures are a must. They’re practically a requirement to live here…I’ve heard rumors that if you don’t take at least one bluebonnet picture each year they kick you out of the state. Each spring for the 6-8 weeks the bluebonnets are out you can find cars pulled over on the side of the highway and the occupants are out taking pictures in the flowers ....more

Grout mistakes and installed bathroom tile

*Thank you to Floor & Decor for sponsoring this post. Last month I shared with y’all the process of picking tile for our kids bathroom, and I’m happy to say that it’s all installed, and we are that much closer to having a livable house! As a reminder, here is the tile we picked – a brushed marble tile for the floor, a tumbled marble subway tile for the shower walls, and a linear blue glass for the backside of the niches (all from Floor & Decor) ....more

Choosing interior paint colors

I don’t think anyone here would disagree with me if I said choosing paint colors is hard. There are just so many options, and they usually look very different on the wall than they do on a little paint chip. Saying you’re “just going to paint it a neutral color” doesn’t make things any easier either…even though it may sound like giving up ....more
