2014 Year In Review

Well, 2014 is almost over and it looks like I successfully blogged one time…yay, me. The year just flew by so I used Instagram as my mobile blog. If you follow me, (instagram.com/llcsteen), then you saw everything that happened this year…including moving!

For Sale
It was time for a change and we are loving the change we made! I am proud of the projects we completed in the house in Edmond and will recap those for you this week because then we can get to the good stuff of the new house.

I hope you have enjoyed your holiday season and a fantastic 2014. I’m looking forward to an even better 2015!

xoxo,
Laura

 

2013 Year in Review

Happy 2014! I loved 2013 but am really looking forward to 2014 – my self-proclaimed “Year of Fun!” It’s always great to look back at the previous year and this blog helps keep some of those fun memories for me. Based upon your views and clicks, it is safe to say this year was the year of our master bedroom. We finally finished all of the big projects I wanted to complete and you all loved them with me! Below are the top five posts from 2013.

Bar area before and afterConner’s favorite makeover in our house is this bar area, especially the stained wine cabinet from our 5th anniversary. When we moved in, we knew right away that the desk would have to come out (can you say junk collector?). New floors, new paint, an updated cabinet as well as two new beverage centers really make this spot more us!

DIY Mirrored Nightstand5I love that we finally have grown-up nightstands! Conner’s nightstand was tricky with that stupid floor vent but we worked it out and I love it.

Floor Mirror18Every girl’s dream – a full-length mirror to see her shoes! This DIY floor mirror took some time (mainly for drying, but really for silver-leafing) but it was so worth it for the end result and the space it takes up on this empty wall.

DIY Tufted Headboard19The second most favorite post/project of the year is our tufted headboard, inspired by West Elm and featured on BuzzFeed! (What a thrill and lesson learned…don’t read comments you can’t delete!) Mom and I worked all day on a Sunday to get this over-sized beauty finished and I love it so much.

DIY Mirror Nightstand8And finally, your favorite project and mine…the DIY mirrored nightstand on my side of the bed. I had been dreaming of doing this for two years and am kicking myself for not doing it sooner. It is so easy and not as expensive as I feared!

Thanks for reading in 2013! I will be back soon with new projects. For more in between posts, follow me on Instagram and like the Facebook page!

2013 Christmas Home

I’m a little…well, a lot…behind this year but I finally got my act together and am showing you our house all fancy and decorated for Christmas. The link-up parties have come and gone but its always fun to post this so I can remember what I did the year before! There are a lot of pictures and just a few comments so if you have a question, please leave a comment below or send me an email.

2013 Christmas House3Wrapping paper from Ballard Designs, burlap ribbon from Hobby Lobby and tree skirt from Pottery Barn…I prefer modern in my home design but traditional at Christmas is my favorite.
