    One of the reasons I started this blog was to take you through my renovation journey so that we can both learn to make our homes Pinterest-worthy and magazine-ready. My boyfriend, Taylor, bought his grandparents home 2 years ago and let me tell you my mind was going crazy with all the possibilities.

    One Room Challenge Laundry Room Going Rogue

Tile To be honest, I started the powder room for my last One Room Challenge and was so intimidated by tile that I got very off schedule. But guess what, I’m not scared anymore! Tile is a big undertaking but it’s incredibly less intimidating after you’ve done it…
