One day I’m going to walk into this room where all of my loved ones will be seated, ready to read letters about the ways in which my love for all things striped has negatively impacted them.
A special shoutout of love and gratefulness to the man who captured my heart for the first time almost 9 years ago when he showed up to shovel my sidewalks and driveways and he continues to capture my heart with his labors of love. Jeff works endlessly to provide for our family of 6 and I absolutely love the transformation of our lovely home into our dream abode.
In one of our boys’ bathrooms I had them paint the cabinets a deep navy. The countertop will be a marble type quartz and the walls behind the vanity are shiplapped. There will be warm teak mirrors to finish it off. #whitefarmhouse #farmhouse #halenavy #modernfarmhouse #boysbath
Hey guys - making a home you love doesn’t have to cost a fortune 💗 in here:
❇️I made over a $10 thrift store door to make a custom barn door for our pantry. ❇️We installed the least expensive & basic subway tile (and love it!)
❇️bought a clearance faux plant because it was in a broken vase (then stuck it in another basket). ❇️Used local reclaimed wood for our shelves with the most inexpensive IKEA brackets. ❇️Made a sign out of plywood for next to those shelves. ❇️Have the least expensive IKEA plates. .
.Together I feel like it looks great 💗 just wanted to encourage you if you don’t have the budget you think you need for house projects - get creative and resourceful! Frequent your local thrift stores & scour Craigslist. Learn a new skill from YouTube or a DIY blog. Think of items outside of the box. It’ll take longer to get your home the way you want it, but it’ll be so worth it 👊🏽

When my cousin moved he offered me this antique buffet that had belonged to my mother. It had definitely suffered over the years. Swipe to see the before, Turns out it belonged to my grandmother before my mother. It’s walnut and the veneer was damaged so a little bondo and some elbow grease and I have a family heirloom in my dining room I’m very proud of. No doubt my mom and grandmother in heaven are proud too. #halenavy #benjaminmoore #itfoundme #design #project #restore #love #meanttobe #beforeandafter #paintedfurniture
One more because... 4th of July! Camp blankets inspired this twin bedroom for guests at the lake. The wicker chests are a great place to stash guest linens.👌🏼Architecture: John Hagenah, Builder: Lowell Custom Homes, Photographer: Werner Straube
