Welcome Springtime Inspiration:
Spring is here! Sunnier days are ahead, flowers are blooming, the weather is warming … and that undeniable itch to freshen up your home starts settling in. Everywhere I look this time of year, inspiration looms! Honestly, it can almost feel a bit…overwhelming? Each spring I find myself somewhat stuck, unable to decide which direction to head with my décor, DIY, or crafting projects. This year, rather than allow myself to once again fall frozen, I am going to dive head-in to the inspiration station! Instead of feeling stuck, or undecided, I'm going to spend my time looking back at past projects or imagining new ideas, and draw inspiration from that. Even if inspiration doesn't suddenly spring up, I'll have looked at some seriously gorgeous spaces…seems like a win-win to me!
Blogger Collaboration: Morgan from My Pear Tree Home
One of my absolute favorite projects we saw come to life was with Morgan over at My Pear Tree Home. The laminate counters in her house, while not absolutely terrible, just weren't doing it for her anymore! However, when she searched for replacement counters - she was less than pleased with the price.
Determined as ever, she kept searching for a answer! She knew there had to be a solution, there was no way that beautiful counters + kitchens were reserved for those with a huge budget and endless time frame! She stumbled across Instant Granite and, after seeing a post or two of the material on Instagram, she reached our to order some samples and check out if the material was as good as it seemed.
Luckily, the Instant Granite lived up to her expectations, and she fell in love with the White Italian Marble pattern. She measured her kitchen, gathered her tools, and got ready to work!
Morgan received 24ft of the White Italian Marble Instant Granite and gathered her tools. For her installation, she used a straight-edge, utility knife, scissors, and a hairdryer. She and her husband worked together and were able to complete the project in 1 weekend! Wowza - that's way less of a time commitment than a total kitchen reno. Check out her blog post to read how they used the hairdryer to handle the rounded edges!
Before and After
This project was a serious game-changer for Morgan and her family The White counters add such a bright and fresh feel to the kitchen. Check out the stunning before and after photos!
Wow!! What a transformation. The entire space feels brighter more inviting. We had such a great time partnering up with Morgan for this project, and it's been fun to revisit these images and get inspired all over again. Check out some more totally inspiring shots from her kitchen below!
