HGTV Flipping the Block premieres SUNDAY!

Hi friends!  The time is almost here for the premiere of Flipping the Block on HGTV!  Tune in this Sunday, July 20 at 9/8c as we kick off season 1!  The master bedroom is up first!

This was by far the most challenging and rewarding adventure that John and I have ever done together!  Lots of early mornings, late nights, and still never enough time to do everything you imagine in a space!   The experience has forever changed our lives.

We are so overjoyed with gratitude for HGTV, so please join us on Sunday and root for Team Black!!

p.s.  There is an article in our hometown paper today covering the story and how we were chosen for this amazing opportunity.  Still, months after filming, we are pinching ourselves.  Check it out here!

p.s.s.  Our new business website is almost complete!  We’ll be blogging over there as well!

Smiles,

John and Whit

  3. Read about your great adventure in the paper today and can’t wait to watch the competition! My husband and I just renovated a 1972 brick ranch on Fleming Island (one of several we’ve done over the years), and love the process like you do. Will be fun to follow you now and get inspired by your talent. Good luck!

  4. I am so over the top excited to see the show….I am shouting this out from the roof tops!!!
    So happy for you two!!!

  5. So excited for y’all! Having found you a few years back, I kinda feel like “I knew you back when.” May God bless you with even more opportunities. Can’t wait to see the show.

  6. Hi Whitney. I haven’t been by your blog in a while. How exciting to see you are going to be on a show! I’ll be pvring the episodes to make sure I don’t miss a single one! How exciting about your new business too! Good luck with it all.

    P.s. I am slightly jealous you mean Scott! Haha

Living Room Pick-Me-Ups

Did you guys have a happy 4th of July?!  I hope so!  We enjoyed some grilling and relaxing!  We got a bunch of things done around the house as well.

A couple years ago, we purchased a fun ikat rug from Rugs USA for our living room.  (You can check it out here.)  We still love this rug, but decided to make a few switch-a-roos in this room.  After all, we spend most of our time in the living room, and we were ready for a change.

I had been eyeing this rug for so long, and finally went for it!  It’s so soft, and you know I love the gray and white combo!

I basically stole the red and blue accessories from Target last weekend on mega clearance.  I am loving the fun pop of color they add!  Also, our fiddle leaf fig is getting so big!  The yucca we used to have in this corner was transplanted outside–it was outgrowing the room.   Pretty soon my fig will be large enough to fit in my gold stenciled planter!

The rug is classy and timeless, and goes with everything!  We would LOVE to splurge on some new living room furniture soon, but in the meantime, a new rug and some fun accessories are definitely a pick-me-up in our space!!

And here’s a close up– the feet aren’t complaining. ;)

Below is a close-up of one of my Target clearance finds!  I need to buy a little candle for this cute hurricane.  I bet the light going through all the holes looks crazy!  Do you spy the flowers back there?  Johnny Ray picked those up for me this week.  Such a sweetie pie.  ;)

I’m loving all the changes!!  We moved the previous living room rug into one of the spare bedrooms for now.  We found some cool orange curtains that tie in perfectly with it!  I’ll take some pictures soon.

In other news, we picked out the exterior paint colors for our house today!  If you follow me on Instagram (@whitneyspinks) you probably saw the samples!

We hope you all have a great week!!  Do something that makes you smile today. :)

  1. Love the pops of red! And that rug looks amazingly cozy!

  2. Love that rug and how great it must feel under your feet!…Love all your “steals” from Tar-Jay!…

  3. Marian

    Looking good!!

  4. ah love that rug in that color combo. looks comfy on toes too!

  5. I’ve always thought it was smart to stick with classic pieces for the big stuff so that you can change out smaller things for easy/cheap change. Good stuff!

Knocking Out the To-Do List

Happy Monday!!  Who had a fun weekend?!  We went to Pensacola for a wedding, and it was a blast!  We stopped at a local beach bar to grab a drink and enjoy the view. Below is a photo from the trip for those who don’t have Instagram.  :)

Needless to say, we didn’t get much done around the house this weekend, but I’ve been eager to update you on the the things we’ve taken care of in the past couple weeks.  You know when you have a To-Do list that seems so overwhelming, you don’t know where to start?  When it comes to our home, that’s pretty much how John and I have felt for about a year now.  When you can rattle off 10 things that all need to get done, you know your list is extensive.  But we’ve slowly but surely been plugging away at it, and it feels so good!

We hadn’t touched the large back deck since we moved in 3 years ago (other than pressure washing).   So guess what we did!

We stained that bad boy:

What a huge difference a good pressure washing and a little stain can make.  And scroll back up to take a peek at the yard when we moved in versus now!  Green grass grow, baby, grow!  You can read about revamping the back yard here.

We also replaced all of our disgusting old ceiling fans.  Although I’m not a huge ceiling fan lover, they do provide a little break from the crazy Florida heat.  We also painted the bottom half of my dressing room (BM Classic Gray #1548) and hung these amazing Anthropologie curtains that my MIL got me for my birthday.  You know you’re obsessed with interior design when you start asking for things like curtains instead of handbags and shoes for your birthday.  Not that I’m against bags and shoes or anything. ;)

We painted over the stencil in the hallway (BM Classic Gray #1548~ I guess we like this color?!) and painted all the doors and trim bright white.  The hallway stencil was fun for awhile, but we were ready for a change.  The good thing about stenciling is you can just paint over it!  We are still waiting on some of our door hardware, but the brass is gone!

As I mentioned above, we painted all the trim in the hallways, but we also tackled the trim around the french doors and the french doors themselves.  The color was cream (yuck!!) and now it’s bright white:

We’re also about to paint the outside of the house!  Aahhh!  Big project!  Our house desperately needs some curb appeal, so we’re going to take the plunge and paint it.

We hope you all have a fantastic week, friends!  Do something that makes you smile today. :)

  1. “You know you’re obsessed with interior design when you start asking for things like curtains instead of handbags and shoes for your birthday.” This made me laugh! Mainly because we asked our son (who’s turning 3) what he wanted for his birthday and his response was “A shooting gun, a green bouncing ball, and curtains for my windows.” Ha. I think you really know that your obsessed with interior design when you young children start asking for curtains instead of toys!!!

  2. What beautiful updates.
    PS-I love your dining room chairs.

  3. come paint all the trim in my house next please :)

    I don’t want to do it and we have some to do still!!

    • Haha I know what you mean! Painting trim is kind of daunting b/c it feels like it’s never ending, but I just turn on my tunes and try to not think about it!!

  4. Wow..you two are always the busy ones…the deck looks great and I so remember when you stenciled the hallway…it was beautiful; however I guess it was time for a change..love all of your changes and I so understand about the ceiling fan…Glad you had a great weekend…

  5. Love the neutral gray! We have to paint all of our window trim outside this summer. Definitely NOT looking forward to that project!

    • Oh my I can’t wait to see your trim after that project! We have been putting off painting the exterior, but it’s time. We are making ourselves buckle down and do it!

  6. You know…I really loved that hallway stencil so I am a little surprised to see that I really love the change! Everything look a little more streamlined, which I really dig. The deck looks awesome too; excellent choice in stain color! How far away is Pensacola? Can we add to our list of beach bars to visit whenever Bob and I get down there!?

    • Thank you dearie! We are getting our house ready to list (more on that coming soon!) so the stencil needed to go. Pensacola is about 5 hrs from Jax, all the way on the Gulf side of FL. The water over there is so much prettier than the Atlantic in Jax. I’m so envious!

    Whitney,

    What an awesome resourceful blog! Looking forward to doing some scrolling & getting great ideas. Love the neutral gray wall color. I’m contemplating a horizontal gray stripe in our powder bath, this may be the perfect color!
