Embracing Beige

Beige gets a bad rap in the design world. It’s synonymous with bland, boring, colorless and therefore lifeless. “Nobody’s favorite color is beige,” is something we recently heard. Heck, we’ve probably snubbed it ourselves, defensively...Show More Summary

Makin’ My Shed Dreams Come True

There’s a joke I have with my running buddies that somehow our conversations always seem to turn to sheds. We’re either admiring the ones that we pass by on our neighborhood runs, commiserating about how we all wish we had more storage,...Show More Summary

Behind The Scenes Of Blogging For Business

Since we’ve heard from so many of you who are enjoying the peek behind the scenes of the blogging business in this week’s podcast episode (so glad!) we thought we’d point you guys to another resource on that subject: our 3-part series on how to start a blog, grow your audience, and earn money. Show More Summary

Turning Race Medals Into Christmas Ornaments (It’s Ridiculously Easy)

Sometimes when we mention some random side-note-y thing, that little aside surprises us by becoming the thing people want to know about more than anything else we’ve said. Take this cheeseball picture that we posted after John’s third...Show More Summary

Evolution Of A Room, Girl’s Bedoom Edition

Who’s ready for the coming of age tale of a girl room, just finding its own way in this big beautiful world? Growing, changing, and living life without regrets and a whole lot of heart (cue the romantic comedy music). I think Reese Witherspoon should play the room. Show More Summary

How To Install Hardwood Flooring

At this point you’ve probably seen our finished and furnished bonus room above our garage, but let’s take a quick joyride back in the DeLorean to talk about how we installed the oak hardwood flooring in there. When we mentioned it oh-so-briefly...Show More Summary

We Have A Podcast!

Well, we’re upping the nerd factor around here and giving podcasting a go. The name? Young House Love Has A Podcast. I’ll give everyone a moment to let that process. I know it’s a tricky one. So much nuance. The first question on everyone’s...Show More Summary

Our Finally Finished Bonus Room

Hallelujah – the sun is back on the East Coast! So when it finally reappeared after weeks of rain, we broke out the camera and took some photos of our finally finished bonus room (well, “finished” is a loose term, since I don’t think we’re ever actually done tweaking things). Show More Summary

A Bedroom Full Of Stars, Planets, & Love

We’re sort of at a loss for how to write this post. We could approach it as your typical makeover post, complete with befores, afters, and a budget breakdown. But the room we’re sharing with you today isn’t about how dramatically it changed, how quickly it happened, or how affordable the transformation was. Show More Summary

How To Hide TV Wires For A Cord-Free Wall

While our recently-finished bonus room upstairs was never intended to be a dedicated “media room” or “theater room,” we always knew it’d make a great spot for special family movie nights. But in adding a television, we didn’t want to create Cordfest 2016 up in here. Show More Summary

Switchin’ Things Up

One of the most common questions we get asked these days is what we’re up to (specifically, what we’re doing for work). We covered a lot of that back in this post, but in a nutshell it’s a combination of stuff we did before we started...Show More Summary

Adding Built-Ins & Floating Shelves Around A Window Niche

We’re dropping back in with some progress on the room above our garage that we recently finished insulating, drywalling, and flooring (aka: the former storage room that we hope to use for art / playing / movie nights & spillover sleeping space for visiting friends & family). Show More Summary

Finishing The Room Over Our Garage

Who remembers our old furniture and pillow hoarding room at the end of the hall that we used to call “the storage room”? You may recall that we stole a bit of its square footage to create our laundry room), which conveniently left us...Show More Summary

Our 2015 Christmas Tree & Holiday Decor

Crank up “Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer” and chug some eggnog, because we’re about to share some festive photos up in hurrrr. First up, the tree. You guys might remember that we set it up in the office the first year that we lived here. Show More Summary

Decking The Halls… With “Fancy” Molding

Our upstairs hallway recently got the wainscot treatment, and it’s kind of like the debonair older cousin to the DIY board & batten from our last house. Let’s just say, if our hallways were the Lindsay Lohans from The Parent Trap, this...Show More Summary

How We Added Landscape Lighting

This is a project we did over the summer and kept meaning to Instagram, but it refused to be contained by the limits of one shot just like the writers of The Walking Dead refuse to care about our VERY REAL FEELINGS about very fictional characters. But I digress. Show More Summary

Hello? Is This Thing On?

Well, last week marked a year since we took our big blog break. We didn’t really know what to expect would happen after stepping away from the blog last fall, and we certainly didn’t expect all of the love, support, and interest you guys have continued to show us over the last year. Show More Summary

The Time Of Our Lives

Update: Aaaand less than 12 hours later we’re back with an update on the bottom of the post for ya. Smooth, right? Hey there! Long time no see. The break has been great. Admittedly a little weird, but really reinvigorating. So we’re immensely thankful not only for your support and kind comments, but also for […]

Fab Freebie: It’s Curtains For You

Update: We hoped to have a Thursday post for you guys but this week didn’t go as planned. So sorry! Update #2: We’d love your thoughts on this thread that popped up on this post. What are your opinions about smaller posts when we can’t write something juicy? Skip them and just own that we […]

That’s My Jamb (aka: How To Hang A Door)

Hope you guys had an awesome Labor Day. We split time between family and house projects which is pretty much our sweet spot. This week is going to be especially hairy thanks to having book stuff nearly every day, but we did manage to eke out a few things to share and hope to be […]
