Our dining room has become a compilation of various projects over the past year. It has become the showcase for a completed line of designs built with blood, sweat, and tears. And also dark walnut wood.
With each project, we were able to move from furniture and décor we purchased on Craigslist during college and in our early years of marriage to having unique pieces that share our story. Our hope is that others can learn from us, create spaces that tell their story, and utilize functional home décor pieces that fit their budget, needs, and personal design preferences.
Judah was born in January 2020 and surprised us with his presence two weeks early. He entered the world and hopped right into a wild ride over his first year of life. He ended up spending some time in the NICU while Sydney was also recovering from some of her own health difficulties after giving birth. After being released from the hospital to go home, the journey was actually just beginning as we faced the pandemic and Josh's health concerns. The beauty of the pandemic meant that we had some time at home to work on putting together some unique custom pieces of furniture and décor for Judah's room. It also meant that we got to spend more time together as a family and supporting one another
This post overviews the work that we did, but there will be more posts to come to show off the details and process of each piece. Judah can't wait to show you!

Josh and Sydney are life adventurers that love to learn and create. We are exact opposites and enjoy gaining new perspective. Our home is where our varying personalities shine, and we use it to gather our friends and family together.
