  • Stephanie Shaul - Love, love, love this inspiration picture and color!! You know how much I adore light blue (aka dusty French blue!), and I think it would be the perfect pop of color for your back door.ReplyCancel

    • Robyn Van Dyke - Thanks you, Stephanie! Loved how you incorporated shades of blue into your gorgeous wedding design! ๐Ÿ™‚ReplyCancel

    • Robyn Van Dyke - Thanks, Rachel!! We’ll definitely have to check it out! ๐Ÿ™‚ReplyCancel

After 6 months (!) in our new home, it sometimes feels like we’ve made very slow progress on our fixer upper.

  • Syllvia - Robyn:

    You have really accomplished a lot.

    We continue to work on our new home. For Mother’s Day Bill is painting the master ceiling white instead of chocolate brown and hopefully next week will repaint the two remaining bathrooms. This weekend we hung pictures in the dining room.
    It all takes time but with each accomplishment there is a joy and excitement as we each create our homes. You guys are amazing.ReplyCancel

    • Robyn Van Dyke - Thank you, Sylvia! Paint and pictures on the walls make such a huge difference, doesn’t it?! And I couldn’t agree more about there being so much joy and excitement with each accomplishment! ๐Ÿ™‚ReplyCancel

  • Elizabeth Burns - You guys work FAST! Those are some big items marked off your to-do list! I think the last leg of your reno will go super fast because it is more of the fun stuff. ๐Ÿ™‚ Your sweet home looks SO pretty!ReplyCancel

    • Robyn Van Dyke - Thanks, Elizabeth! It’s encouraging to hear you say “fast!” Haha! It certainly hasn’t felt that way at times! We’re hoping things continue to move but it is definitely starting to feel like there are more “fun” parts to this whole process the more we progress! ๐Ÿ™‚ ReplyCancel

We are so grateful to finally have a garage door again and to be making progress on our massive list of home renovations! (While the brick still needs exterior paint and sconces still need to be installed, we LOVE the black garage door!!) However, nothing could have prepared me for the emotional roller coaster that […]
