Sugar & Cloth Casa: Our Dining Room Makeover Reveal!

Sugar & Cloth Casa: Our Dining Room Makeover Reveal!

This before and after is a serious testament to how a little goes a long way. We kept a lot of our same furniture, layout, and color scheme and just updated some key statement pieces. I’d say it’s quite a big change with very little effort, which is partially a miracle because nothing else in our house came together this easy!

There aren’t a whole lot of configuration options that work for the space since our dining room is connected to the kitchen and living room on the second floor.

If I had a custom shirt made for wearing around the studio, it would be super colorful and have “please save me from myself” written on the back. Not only is that extremely accurate and slightly embarrassing, but so are the before photos of the studio that I’m about to grace you with.

This is where my friend Jeffrey comes in! He’s the single chicest organizing guru that I know. We met a few years ago at a conference in Boston,

The Before + After of Our Guest Bathroom Makeover! by top Houston lifestyle blogger Ashley Rose of Sugar and Cloth

Just when you guys thought we were finally done with renovations…muahaha!

Now we’re finally getting around to finishing up the little details after the big overhauls and it feels so good!

My Recent Favorite Places to Shop For Baby Clothing & Keeping them Stain Free by top Houston lifestyle blogger Ashley Rose of Sugar & Cloth

There are few things I love more than shopping for Gwen. Seriously, it’s kind of an actual problem of mine…just ask Jared, haha. They’re speaking the truth when they say everything is cuter when it’s mini, and baby clothes are living proof.

I try to justify my purchases to Jared by reminding him that we’re potentially investing in hand-me-downs for future daughters and/or nieces, which tends to help lessen the judgment. This means I’m also slowly figuring out how to keep the evidence of baby diaper blow-outs to a minimum.
