On Turning 30 {Birthday Reflections}

Today is my thirtieth birthday.

There have been a few significant birthdays before, but this one feels especially important to me. Starting a new decade with confidence and grace inevitably invites reflection on the years that have passed. So on this day, I'm sharing a little bit more about me (plus a few pics of me through the years) as I cross into a brand new decade of Ashley.

Our Vintage Jadeite Bathroom {The Reveal}

This reveal is about three months in the making but, today, I'm proud (and relieved!) to show off the results of our vintage jadeite bathroom redo.

I first posted the plans in November, and at that time it was our goal to have the space completed for Christmas houseguests. Well, our visitors came and went while the bathroom languished. We struggled with uncooperative plumbing, speciality parts (the complexity that comes with working with original 55 year-old fixtures) and post-holiday exhaustion. But, today, here we are!

My Rope-Wrapped Tables Featured on Apartment Therapy!

Yesterday, I got a pleasant surprise: my DIY rope-wrapped side tables were featured on Apartment Therapy as February's "Project Month"!

I submitted the project to them about a month ago and wasn't sure if/when it would appear, so I was happy to have it accepted and shared with millions of faithful AT readers.

If you're new around here, I shared the entire DIY process here last June. What a great mid-week surprise, huh?
