Back to School

Last year we had too many ideas for just one blog! So we wanted to keep going and give you some more projects to kickstart your school year! A fresh coat of paint, awesome shelving, a unique drop zone, or a simple escape the second part of our post is sure to provide inspiration.


School starting back up means more books and whatever the kids can fit in their backpacks, make sure you’re ready for it! Extra shelves are a beautiful addition to any room. Take a look at our board on pinterest for some inspiration!

Catch up on popular trends:

Just because it looked cute on Instagram doesn’t mean it still belongs in your house. Check out this article to help you stay on top of popular trends and avoid outdated ones. For the cost of a can of paint or an accessory from ikea you can quickly create a new vision for any room that is still post worthy!

Realtor tip: Adding a unique focal point in a common area is a great way to make a room inviting and it has the extra bonus of being a great conversation starter!

Replace the old shower head:

This is the easiest item on the list but also might be the most the most relaxing. If a rusty, inconsistent shower head is ruining your morning routine then just get a new shower head. You don’t need to spend a fortune to create a big difference! Here’s our favorite to make it even easier, just think… spaaaah!

Reclaim your space:

An empty house may be bittersweet but it can’t keep you from making it your home again. This can’t stop you from refurbishing a living space, transforming a now empty bedroom into a home gym or productivity sensor, or even just buying new throw pillows! The possibilities are endless!
