'Tis The Season
My first official Christmas as a homeowner!! And what does that mean??! … Time to get my first (under my own roof) REAL Christmas tree!!

Half Bath 7

Half Bath
Having a half bath in a home built in the 1950s is VERY rare (at least in Augusta, GA). I got really, really lucky with the floor plan in my house, it is very open with large closets (Yes, Please!!!) and it comes with a half bath!! If you are an avid reader of Brickhousebluedoor, ...

Front Porch Sittin’

Front Porch Sittin'
So here is a small glimpse of my front porch! My front porch is quite large and I haven’t had any furniture or decorations to spice it up with since I moved in 3 months ago. Let’s just say it’s about time!! Here is a flashback to “pre blue door” days… one LARGE and empty ...

One Fish, Two Fish… 2

One Fish, Two Fish...
There are a ton of small projects to be done around my house. Stuff that is TOTALLY manageable by my mother and me… Right? Remember my unfinished side to my island? Well we bought some bead board to cover that side! I figured this would give it a little texture. I primed the bead board ...
