Modern Farmhouse Master Bathroom Renovation


It’s finally here! Our master bathroom renovation. I meant to post this before now, but spring sickness hit me pretty hard, and delayed this post just a little! I’m so excited though to finally share, and I LOVE how everything turned out! Also, a special thank you to my wonderful husband Michael Klopfenstein Construction, for completing this renovation so beautifully! If you have any construction projects coming up, check him out, and give him a call for a custom estimate!

Hello! Welcome to the Pure Blonde blog! It’s been a minute since I did any blogging (aka, I had a “custom” blogger blog WAYYYY back in the day where I posted about nothing and everything, with weird colored “glow” filter photos). Anyway, I’m super excited to start blogging again, and really started this as a way to share family adventures, DIY projects, our homeschooling journey, life on the farm, my hair journey… Really, you name it! I always have people asking me about details about DIY projects, photography, country life, and the other things listed, so I thought I should just put everything in one place! At any rate, I’m SO HAPPY and honored that you’re here, and I hope you join me with a cup of coffee (or glass of wine depending on the time of day). Please stay a while, introduce yourself, comment, ask questions, share, and use this blog as a fun resource in your life! Talk to you soon!

Kitchen Pantry Makeover


My kitchen pantry has been an un-organized MESS for YEARS now, and since winter is my photography business “off” season, I like to tackle projects that I’ve wanted to do, but haven’t had time for during the winter. I completed this project in just a couple of days, and I’m so happy with how it all turned out!
