⬆️Curtain Height⬆️ B E F O R E and A F T E R Simply raising your curtains can make the room feel taller. 👆🏻We live in an older home built in the 60’s, so I’m trying to create a feeling of open. Simply raising our curtains up to almost ceiling level has made our rooms feel more grand! Also added @budget_blinds_official to our windows, this has really made a huge impact on look and privacy! Why did we wait so long?!🤔 This dining fixture was a yard sale find...at first I liked the shades and now I’m really feeling it without! More modern farmhouse looking! Still working on replacing neutral rug and finding different chairs. I’d like 6 instead of 4! My husband Also built this beauty of a table from #thehandbuilthome plans from Ana White. #beforeandafter#DIY#handbuilthome#anawhiteplans#diningroom#modernfarmhousestyle#budgetblinds#curtainsdesign#paintchangeseverything#mamascoffeebreak ☕️

Oh and another shout out to our local @loweshomeimprovement for having one more cushion set on clearance just waiting for us 🙌🏻😂
Turning my dining room into a piano lab meant losing my dining room furniture including storage for my dishes. This buffet and plate rack are a neat solution! Jeff did a great job building it, and our kitchen is officially done! Best part...it only took 3 years!😬😬😬😬 #anawhiteplans#honeydolist#imnotbitter

It’s been a pretty big month in the Pack house. Andy started school at UTSA full-time and quit his job to help us get through this next push a little faster. I don’t think the weight of everything really hit until last week when it fully sunk in that we’d be living off what I brought in with my photography. So.. given that it’s going to mean some late nights for both of us.. him studying and me editing my fingers to the bone (hopefully 🙏).. it meant that we needed some larger desk space. So this girl got to work. I found some plans I loved, adjusted them to fit us both.. and wha-la! His and Hers desk! BAM! Now understand.. the metaphor of this all isn’t lost on me.. he and I working side by side trying to build something.. and much of it built on the faith and prayers that is the right direction for our little family. It’s exhausting but will be well worth it! #onedream#oneteam#packfamilyadventures#photographer#anawhiteplans#mysideisthelongest#captureyourbliss

I built this coffee table 4+ years ago and today it gets a new look! Trying out a new kind of paint on it- Rustoleum’s chalk paint. I have used Annie Sloan in the past, and for how expensive it was, I wasn’t super impressed. The first coat of paint is on and I’ll post an “after” picture and whether I give it a 👍🏻 or 👎🏻. Also, has anyone used this paint and followed up with the Rustoleum clear coat in the spray paint can, instead of wax? Would love to hear advice on whether or not I should use the spray.
Thanks @anawhitediy for the building plans!
Our weekend project! We make a pretty awesome team! Everything is from scratch. Starting with lumber from Lowe’s, paint, glue, stain, and polyurethane. Top left is right after we put it all together and bottom right is a finished kitchen table! I love the life I have with this man! ❤️🏡😊 #homeowners#builders#artsyfartsy#anawhite#anawhiteplans

Another favorite piece of mine in this forever fixer upper of ours is my dinning room table and bench. Almost one year ago Kevin turned a big pile of lumber into these beauties! I wanted something less formal more farmhouse and he hit it out of the park! The bench is big enough to seat all four growing boys while momma + daddy get the cozy end chairs(although I usually sit in a white one to be closer together). We host Christmas dinner it was important to me to get us all around one table and with this beaut we can. As the air is starting cool, little by little I’m looking forward to lots more cooking and lots more friends and family to gather round! 💛

The pile of lumber we brought home a month ago is now a table and bench. 🙌🏻. I’m so excited. My Mr did a great job building it and then I did the stain and top coat. It’s the “fancy X farmhouse table” on Ana White’s site. Modified to be shorter because the original plan was a beast at 8 ft. Then I stained it using @purecolorinc evengrain stain in brunette. Two coats. I thought I’d add that because I searched high and low on here for good examples of colors in this particular stain and didn’t find much. I had to use a stain that had no fumes because we have parrots. It’s amazing! Zero smell. Anyway, I love projects that we do together because it’s always a nice memory to look back on. Even when we were driving each other crazy. 🤣 I’ve been waiting to drag my fall bins out until this was done so I guess now I can really start going crazy. 🎃🖤🧡🍁. #farmhousetable#anawhite#anawhiteplans#falldecor#diningroom#farmhousedecor#raedunn#rustic#halloween#autumn#diningtable#evengrainstain#purecolorstain
