Ok, well maybe a can of primer and a can of paint…and some leftover blue wall paint from the kitchen. That’s all it took to transform our living room. I absolutely love how it turned out. I’ve been wanting to paint our fireplace since we moved into our house a little over 1 1/2 years ago. Get ready for some amazing before and after shots!
I wanted to share a Kapple family tradition with everyone: Cottage Cheese Pancakes. Now, I know that right now you are thinking about how disgusting that sounds. I thought the same thing when my husband told me about them while we were dating. But, once he made them for me, I quickly fell in love with them. I would actually venture to say that I

Even though I have been slow to post, I have been going crazy with projects. My goal is to get Lula’s room finished by her birthday (which is on Friday!!) so that she has 6 weeks to adjust to a big girl bed and different room before the baby takes over he old one!
