Weekend Reading

By Kate Riley February 11, 2017

Hello friends! Yesterday we made progress on the kitchen renovation for my local non-profit, I’m excited to share that transformation with you soon! Tomorrow I’m off to Vegas for a few days to visit with family and do some work on the flip house. I finally have a kitchen cabinet plan and hopefully I’ll have photos of the hall bathroom renovation to share with you when I return.

Favorite links from the week below!


Love this colorful Tudor tour.

This kitchen was a (gasp!) budget makeover.

It’s all in the details, like the molding on this bathroom vanity.

Winner: most gorgeous barn ever!

How cool are these 3D printed vases?

So much prettiness: a beautiful Indian wedding.

This bow updo makes a sweet statement.

Why strength training is important for women.

Resisting the media’s race to the bottom.



  1. Hi Kate, I am looking forward to hearing about your bathroom project. Our home is almost 10 years old and the renovation projects are almost due now. I would still stick with the cream colors but am shopping around for ideas on what would work on the children’s bathroom. I am looking forward to reading some of your ideas and appreciate those links especially the one with the kitchen makeover. Looked simply gorgeous!

  2. I always enjoy your Weekend Reading posts – thanks!
    After clicking through the “budget” kitchen reno link, I was a little surprised to see the major work done. Sure, they didn’t replace the kitchen cabinets or gut the space, but raising floors and (what sure looked like) moving exterior walls would seem like it might knock it out of the “budget” category.
    Enjoyed seeing the end result – beautiful and inspiring work, Nancy.

  3. The link to the strength training article didn’t work…always love more info on that subject.
