March Recap

March has been a crazy month around here! Here’s a recap of everything we’ve had going on:

In the Condo:

livingroom ugly

I finally got around to painting the fire alarms in my condo in a nice glossy white. It’s such an upgrade over the eyesore that the red ones were before.

activate a cable outlet

I rearranged my living room for a much more open floor plan. I also activated a cable outlet without having to call the cable company!

No Sew Curtains DIY - Charleston Crafted

I made fully lined & grommeted curtains for my bedroom – without sewing a stitch! I can’t wait to get them hung!


We shared our color coded floor plan so that you could see not only the colors & layout of the condo, but also the flow between the rooms.

In the Kitchen:

Apple Walnut Salad- Charleston Crafted

I shared one of my favorite salads- the apple walnut with chicken. Yum yum, it is so easy and so filling ! I make it for lunches at work at least once a month!

I shared my new years resolution of eating healthy. I shared how I keep salads (that I take for lunch at work) exciting and delicious.



I can’t wait to get a window seat in the master bedroom! I shared this moodboard of inspiration & can’t wait to get one soon!

I explored a few options for a new stool to go with my vanity. Nothing says a little luxury like putting on your makeup in a princess chair!

I'm gonna pop some tags - Charleston Crafted

Sean got home! He shared a thrift shop visit inspired by his favorite song & a nautical monkey knot door stop that he made in Maryland!

February Recap

Hello all! We wanted to take a beat to take a step back & review everything that we shared with y’all in February!

What’s been cooking:

No Lettuce Asian Chicken Salad

This no-lettuce chicken asian salad is super easy & is great for make-ahead lunches for work or busy weekend days.

tortilla soup

I made a huge pot of this 8 can tortilla soup & froze lots of helpings for taking to work for lunch! It’s so yummy & pretty healthy (unless you top it with tons of cheese & eat it with tortilla chips…. not saying I did, not saying I didn’t.)



We decided to bring back the heart shaped gallery wall in the dining room! It is an inexpensive way to fill up a whole wall & adds a touch of sass & whimsy to any room.

lamp revamp

I recovered a lamp shade with cork & base with sisal rope to give it a new, slightly nautical vibe & totally change its look!

DIY Cork Map- Charleston Crafted

I made this cork map of the USA to track our travels. We pinned where we have each been & where we have been together & now we are really itching to go on another trip!

In the Condo:


I showed you the full length mirror hidden jewelry armoire that my mom got me for Christmas. I’m so obsessed & love getting ready every morning & choosing my jewelry from it!

bathroom painted

Painting Guest Bathroom

I painted both of my bathrooms! My master bathroom is Secret Passage grey & the guest bath is Teeny Bikini blue. I am so excited to be done painting!


grey and yellow room

I shared my inspiration for a grey & yellow bedroom. I already have the grey walls & yellow convertor, but I can’t wait to take i up a notch with dark wood accessories, pops of teal and coral, and some major DIY artwork!

moroccan table

We desperately need a new side table in the master bedroom. I made a mood board of some Moroccan inspired tables that I’m digging, though I’m hoping to find something at the thrift store!

collage of coffee tables

I was super inspired by some raw wood coffee & side tables. My dream is to DIY a driftwood coffee table – similar to #2. Can’t wait to see what we can do!

Other stuff:

How to dry a Camelbak Pouch - Charleston Crafted

Sean shared his favorite method for drying out his camelbak. This technique lets you store an empty pack without it getting moldy! Pretty crucial if you ask me.


I shared some silly “Hey Girl” memes that I made for Sean for Valentines day.

February’s been fun but March is going to be so much better! Sean gets home the 16th & we will have a lot of big projects coming up following his arrival!
