ROUND UP: Airbnb Super Host Must Haves

Image
Believe it or not, we're rounding out Content's 2nd summer season, hosting guests on Airbnb!

We have learned a lot and from time-to-time receive questions from friends and followers about our  Hosting experience. Seems like more and more people are considering opening up their homes, which is awesome to see this amazing community grow!

DIY: Front Door Painting Trick

Image
One of the easiest project you can DIY this Spring is repainting your front door. A fresh coat of paint, on the front door, can help your entry way take on any personality.










LIFE AT CONTENT: Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Image
The Brussels sprout. Why do I always forget about the Brussels spout? It could be because their technically cabbage, and I really dislike cabbage (unless my Mom is making it for St. Patrick's Day).

But when I do manage to get some in my shopping cart, I'm instantly reminded how quick and easy they are to prepare.

RENOVATION: Oak Kitchen Countertop and Backsplash

Image
This is a blast from the past post, which basically means: I wrote the post a LONG time ago, and for whatever reason, never pressed "publish" for your reading enjoyment. Anyway, I love our wood countertops, and felt like even though the project was completed long ago, the context was still on point for sharing. Enjoy!

For the last year (2016), we have continued to tackle 50 step, complex projects within Content. Somewhere in the spring though, rooms were more or less livable, and those lofty projects gave way to simply trying to finish at least 1 room in the house, 100%.

Funny as that sounds, I cannot with all certainty, claim that even one room in Content is completely done. I think this is the blessing and curse of a DIYer. You get to control the speed of your projects, but you also can procrastinate the hell out of them too.

Just the other day, John presented me with one of these to-do lists for the master bathroom and bedroom. Entitled "FINAL TO-DO" it had all…

RENOVATION REVEAL: South Street Kitchen

Happy Friday Everyone! Though we're always excited for the weekend, we are even more excited to share the reveal of the South Street kitchen renovation project with you!

RENOVATION REVEAL: Susan and Carl's Pink Tile Guest Bathroom

Image
Not every renovation is a total overhaul. When walls are structurally sound, the plumbing works where it is and the layout is functional, sometimes all a space needs is a refresh. That was the case with our client, Susan and Carl's, guest bathroom.

Don't get me wrong. The before pictures are pretty rough, but the bones of this bathroom were great and just needed some TLC.

RENOVATION: South Street Kitchen (Before)

Image
As some of you may have seen on the Content + Company Instagram feed, we've been working with our clients on the #southstreetkitchenreno for the past 3 months, but believe it or not, this project has been a year in the making.

Let's back up to early 2017, when Mark and Marie contacted John to build them a custom dining room table.

During our very first meeting, with the then engaged-to-be-married couple, Mark and Marie showed us around their beautiful, c. 1910 home. Full of charm and character, the previous owners had only made minor upgrades to the house. That night, seated at a humble folding table, Mark and Marie shared with us their plans for upgrading the house, with hopes of entertaining friends and family. Mark was ready to cook and we were ready to help!
Even in full wedding planning mode, Mark and Marie were eager to discuss their priority, post-nuptial project - the Kitchen.
And now, exactly 1-year from that very first meeting, we are wrapping up a full kitchen reno…
