  1. Love your site!! I was wondering about your couch in the basement! I’m looking for the chaise/sectional for our living room and love the look of yours. Thanks in advance!!

    1. Hi Jen,

      Thanks for the kind words! The couch in the basement is from Costco! We were there the other day and they had the same style in a slightly darker fabric. This was the only sectional we could agree on (I usually HATE the look of sectionals)


  2. Can you tell me where you got the front door? Working on my son’s bungalow and that is the exact door he needs but cannot find it. HELP!

    1. Hi Kay,

      Our front door was from Home Depot. We picked it up about a year ago, so they might have it.


  3. Just wanted to tell you what an absolutely BEAUTIFUL home you have! I’m in love with all the built ins that you have and your color choices all work so well together! I’m planning on copying your gorgeous homesewn curtain from your office for our still a bun in the oven baby’s room. You have such a great sense of design and I’m truly inspired!!! ❤

    1. Hi Angela!

      Thank you so much for your sweet comments! We’re blushing over here! I highly recommend making the same type of curtains- so easy! Just sewa square or rectangle of your fabric. Then cut your ribbon and fold it in half over your fabric, place where you’d like and sew over your previous line. Then, just tie bows! Much easier than a roman shade. I’d love to see the finished curtain.


  4. Okay…since I’m new here. How do you have such detail in a house from the 60’s? Did you put all the paneling type things on the bottom of your walls and frame out the windows etc? I love it! Our house is from the 60’s and it’s such an adjustment coming from a 1920’s house. I love our house but miss SO MUCH all that old character and detail. Did you do it all or do you think it was that way? Thanks!

  5. Hi Amanda,

    First off, your house is beautiful!!!! Second…..Can you tell me what materials your husband used for the shelves? We have a similar project and are not sure where to begin. We also will be painting the shelves when they are finished. Did you attach the finished product to the studs in the wall?


    1. Hi Amy,

      Thank you so much! Ben used MDF for all the trim and most shelving. If you have a long span, MDF is not the best option. As long as you have a short distance and good support, MDF is great. It paints really well, too. And yes, we did secure the supports to studs, the attached the shelves to the supports.

      Hope it helps!

  6. Hi,

    I just came across your blog and love it! What type of flooring did you use in your office? Is it laminate or tile or vinyl or something else altogether? I am researching different types of flooring for our soon-to-be office, but it will be in the basement, so I need to be careful in case we get water down there!

    Also, if you don’t mind me asking, about how much did it cost to custom make those bookshelves in the office? And the desk area? My father in law is quite handy and could do something similar I think, but we’ve never used MDF to build stuff, just wood which can get rather pricey.

    Thanks so much! Your house looks great! Keep up the good work!

    1. Hi Val,

      The flooring in our basement is a true bodied (the same color all the way thtough) ceramic tile. The large tiles are 20 inches square and the small are 6 inches square set in a pinwheel pattern with 3/16 inch grout lines. We chose tile because we were concerned about water issues and we love it.

      The bookshelves weren’t too expensive; I think the whole wall was less than $100 in materials. Of course we didn’t have to pay for labor because Ben built and installed everything. Usually 3/4 inch MDF is between $20-$25 per 4 foot by 8 foot sheet. MDF is a great alternative to real wood, especially if you plan to paint anyway. Just be careful to supprt it as it’s not quite as rigid as real wood. Hope that helps!


  7. Wow! Thank you so much for listing everything! It bugs me on other blogs when ladies show off their items and won’t tell you where they get them – I appreciate you telling us… 😉 Your house is beautiful and simple, now I feel like shopping! If only I could find your cute chandelier lamp from Target… May I ask if you bought it online or in-store? I can’t find it.

    Thanks! I look forward to more posts!

    1. Hi Karin,

      I’m glad you find it helpful! I bought that lamp about five years ago in store. I will do some research to see if I can find anything similar.


    1. Hi Kristy,

      The color is actually a mistinted version of what I wanted. It was supposed to be Restoration Hardware’s Silver Sage, but it got messed up in the process. The paint is from Wal Mart and they used the light base. The formula for one gallon is B-37, E-39.5, and T-37. Hope it helps. This is the color used in both our dining room and basement. It can look more green in some light.

      Hope it helps!


  8. Hey Amanda — Love, love, love what you’ve done with your ranch. I didn’t see it on your resource page, but where did you get the chevron rug in your kids’ room? Thanks!

  9. Ummmm… so awesome! I’ll be back to your site for sure. Keep up the great work — you and your hubby are a DIY inspiration!

  10. Love your blog! What a transformation!!! I have a question for you…. Where did you find the chevron patterned brown and white rug? Love it. I’ve been looking for one that’s similar. Thanks!

  11. I adore your paint colors! We are closing on our first place next week and I am lusting for your living room. How did you feel about the Wal-mart vs. Behr paint colors? I’ve seen so many blogs pumping up Benjamin Moore over store brands and we had a hard time painting with Behr in our current place. Did you see a big difference using Restoration colors?

    1. Hi Nora,

      Congratulations on your new home!! As for paint colors, I like how cheap Wal Mart’s Colorplace paint is. In lower traffic areas or higher up areas, I think their paint is fine. However, I hate that we used it for our white trim. It’s fine with a magic eraser, but it gets a little beat up. I like the durability of Behr, but I thought the consistency was really thick and difficult to apply. I haven’t used Behr two in one, but I have heard good things about it. I’ve never used Ben Moore because I’m way too cheap to spend money on paint when I change my mind so often. Same goes for RH colors. All of our colors are color matched to the RH swatches, using Wal Mart or Behr paint. We really like Glidden for durability, quality and ease of application.

      Hope it helps!

    1. Hi Summer,

      The basement paint is from Wal Mart, but it wasn’t one of their colors. It’s actually a mistinted version of Restoration Hardware’s Silver Sage. They used the light base. The formula for one gallon is B-37, E-39.5, and T-37. Hope it helps!


  12. LOVE your home! I tried looking for Olympic Wicker Chair, and can’t find it. Any chance you still have a can and can give the formula? Thanks!

    1. Hi Rachel,

      I’ll see if we still have the can. If we do, I’ll share the formula. 🙂


      1. Did you ever find out that the the equivalent for Wicker chair is? i LOVE it and have been looking for a living room color just like that.

    2. Hey Rachel!

      Thanks so much! Unfortunately, we don’t still have the can to share the formula. But, I’m pretty sure Olympic’s Rattan, Bread Basket, and Chicory are similar. Of the three, I think Rattan is the closest. Hope that helps!
