Did I just quote lyrics from Limp Bizkit? The answer is YES.
Did I just age myself tremendously? YES.
Am I proud of what I did? ABSOLUTELY NOT.
What can I say, Im a sucker for a good old fashion pun on words and today it’s all about the NOOKIE! aka the entry way closet we turned into a NOOK at the new house. Im so excited to share it with you guys! As many of you know, we have been elbow deep in renovations at our new house for months (hence, the lack of blog posts). It’s been an exciting, trying, exhausting, strenuous, once in a lifetime adventure that I wouldn’t trade in for the world. I have so many projects that I’m excited to share but thought why not start at the beginning, our entryway.
The best part about buying the “Fisher Ranch” is that we consider it to be our forever home. We have dreams-on-dreams-on-dreams-on-dreams for this land and this home…and all the time in the world to take on each project…one by one. With that being said, there is no wallpaper too funky, no paint color too bold, no backsplash tile too wild for our “Forever Home”…I simply just chose things that make me smile. Sure, one day I may tire of some of these things and make changes here and there to stay current but, there isn’t a “nook” or cranny in this house that doesn’t bring a smile to my face. On that note…Back to the NOOK!
This nook started out as a closet with double sliding doors. Not our style. of course I took to Pinterest to find some inspiration and ended up using a combination of these 2 great DIY’s (mudroom) (board & batten) and modified them to work together for our space. Luckily, I had my handy-man “Chack” on the job.
Funny little tidbit…It’s become widely known that my husband Seth has thoughtfully renamed himself “CHACK” during our whole renovation process. “CHACK” derives from the idea that my husband has deemed himself half Chip Gains (FIXER UPPER) and half Jack (the father on the TV show “This Is Us”)…. a little arrogant? YES. Seth doesn’t do renovation projects, but have no fear…”CHACK” does. SO CHACK HE IS. There is no demolition too intense, no wall too tall, no tool too complicated, and no project to big for “CHACK”!
Here are some pictures we took during the process…
1 day of work, no arguments, A few beers, no missing fingers, and feeling pretty damn good about what we’ve created! PLUS! If we get in an argument Chack’s got a new cozy place to sleep!
