The Sugar Shack | Kitchen Reveal & Other Updates

Hello, hello, friends! We wrapped yesterday and have another Gibson x Hi Sugarplum photoshoot in the books! Can you believe this is our eighth Collection!? Like, what?! The pieces are absolutely divine, and not only can I not wait to share them, but I can’t wait to wear them! Hurry up, spring!

Today is a fun post for my decor-loving friends out there, because we have made serious progress on The Sugar Shack! As you recall, we closed on our little family lake house on Christmas Eve Eve, then spent a month or so hammering out the punch list.

Now that most of that is complete, it’s time to start the fun stuff… decorating!! My goal was to make it just livable and comfortable  enough for our parents to start using right away, then take our time with all the details.

And things are moving right along. Here’s the latest on our darling Sugar Shack…

Once it’s a little warmer, we’ll start the landscaping and front porch. The goal is to stick with native plants that require very little water and maintenance. I’m open to suggestions!

I think the kitchen is my favorite space in the house. It’s the backsplash for me! I’ve always wanted an open kitchen with a big island… I’m envisioning mornings with these stools full of kids, and me flipping pancakes.

I couldn’t resist having a little fun with the laundry room, so we installed a colorful tile and accented the window wall with a dark cabinet. The cabinets on the left are stair-stepped, so I kept them white to blend in with the walls.

Sugarplum Tip: Double-check the building plans to be sure they accommodate enough space for appliances. Our full-size washer/dryer actually overlaps part of the sink and the left cabinet, so had we caught that before framing, we would simply slide the window and sink to the right.

I shared the bedroom design boards HERE, and I love how these rooms are coming together! Many of the pieces are on backorder, so our mattress is on the floor for now.

Now that the weather is warming up, I’m anxious to get some patio furniture so we can be outside. I’ve got my eye on this set and this swing. I just need to double check the dimensions.

The dock is complete, and will be a fun place to hang out in the summer. Little Miss has already been fishing several times. We’ll likely add lights to some of the steps for more safety at night.

I’ve got some fun ideas for decorating it, too!

We weren’t able to see it in person, but how gorgeous is The Sugar Shack blanketed by snow!? I love the dusting of snow on the garage doors. Good thing we didn’t start the landscaping yet, right?!

I’m still pinching myself, I just can’t believe she’s ours! Do you like seeing these regular updates, or would you rather I wait until it’s done? Well, that could be a few years the way I work, ha!

 

PS. I started a Sugar Shack list in my Amazon Shop, with all the house essentials we’ve added so far. You can find that HERE.
