Laundry Room Before and After

    We're starting to wrap up some of our home projects and I'm so excited to share our completed laundry room with you! When we moved into our house, I knew that I needed to make this space more functional. The door opened into it, the closet was wasted space, and there was nowhere to fold clothing, not to mention the BRIGHT turquoise walls. 

    I decided to remove the closet hanging and replace it with cabinets that will provide us with storage as well as an additional folding space. I'm contemplating adding some sort of rack into the nook to allow for a spot to hang clothing, but I'm still undecided. 

    I also decided to remove the washer and dryer from the drawer pedestals. Overall this makes the space more functional, as we can now have countertop space, though I will say it can sometimes be challenging to reach the socks in the back of the washer!. I hope you love the space as much as we do.

Buffalo Butterfly Shrimp With Homemade Blue Cheese Dip

 I love the holidays, but I don't love spending forever in the kitchen prepping food. This appetizer is both easy and delicious, and will give you more time with your friends and family and less time in the kitchen! Kyle was begging for me to make more, and I have to agree, I could have eaten a whole platter!

Lake Champlain Closets

I'm so excited to share about our custom closets through Lake Champlain Closets today!

This is our second time working with them and we couldn't be happier with how our custom closets turned out. 


Initially, we were planning on building and the blueprints for our home had a 100sq foot space for my closet. We ended up purchasing our current home and renovating instead of building, which meant I was losing that massive closet space that I was so excited about. Fast forward to the new house and I had about 35 square feet to work with. I was so bummed, I thought there was no way I could have the closet of my dreams.

I called Cathy from Lake Champlain Closets and we set up a consultation for the following week. During our consult, Cathy asked questions about what I needed most out of the space. I shared how I have many many pairs of shoes and wanted that to be a focus. During our consult, we decided that we would also do two additional closets in the bedroom. One would act as Kyles closet and one a linen closet / more storage for me. Cathy took the time to make sure these spaces would meet all of our needs. 

Just a month after our initial consult, our beautiful custom closets were being installed. I was blown away by the quality of the materials and how good they looked! I know looks aren't everything, but seriously these closets are swoon-worthy. I was so excited to organize all of my things into the closets. I'm happy to report that my shoes do in fact all fit! 

Key Features of Lake Champlain Closets 

  • They can work around baseboard heat. For my walk-in closet, Cathy suggested choosing drawers for that area to ensure safety. What I love about the drawer section is that it also created a beautiful focal point in the closet. 
  • You have the ability to choose your finishes. For our closets, I chose white wood with oil-rubbed bronze rods. I love to have a cohesive home and all of our other fixtures are dark so I was happy this was an option. I was also able to order my own hardware and have it installed. 
  •  They create a design that truly fits your space. Cathy brought my closets to the ceiling to maximize storage and shelving, this also helped to make the space feel much bigger. 
  • Lake Champlain Closets works with you to build a closet that fits within your budget. When looking at other closet companies, the costs were almost double! 
  • Cathy and her team at LCC are very communicative. Throughout the entire process, Cathy was prompt and responsive to all of my questions. 

Overall, I can't say enough good things about Lake Champlain Closets. I have recommended them to so many people and everyone has loved their experience and products they have received. If you have any questions feel free to reach out or contact Lake Champlain Closets directly at
