Top 8 Shared Bedroom Ideas

Kids bedrooms are so fun to design - but shared bedrooms can prove to be tricky. I know first-hand as my boys share a room.  I am nearly finished with their room and you will see the final reveal here super duper soon. In the meantime, here are 10 ideas that will hopefully help if you are in the same situation! Get a dresser with an even number of drawers I have quickly realized with my crew that if one has or...

We have a baby name!

I am impulsive, spontaneous and generally a very open book. Sometimes, too open. It is in my nature and it is just a part of who I am. I very very rarely have trouble making decisions on what I like and don't. Baby names fall into this same category. Most people either can't decide on baby names until the end or like to keep it private until towards the end. The whole open book part of our personalities makes it...

We’re having a baby!

When Joe and I got married, we both knew we wanted a big family. Both of us are the youngest of three kids and we love having siblings. Our number has always been four kids. However the decision to go for number three was the most difficult one for us (or maybe just for me). It wasn't because I didn't still want four, but simply because MegMade was just hitting its stride and our boys were out of diapers and...

Naomi’s House – In honor of Intl. Women’s Day

In honor of International Women's Day I would like to honor an incredible friend for her heroic work helping women. Her name is Simone Halpin. She is beautiful, selfless, funny, humble and kind. She is also passionate, deeply passionate. And what's cool is she and her husband act on it and help those that need it. A few years ago, she felt the need to help women caught in human trafficking and started an organization called Naomi's House. Here are a few...

Le Mans Kitchen Before + After

Remodels are so fun to share because the before and after is so dramatic. This kitchen is no exception. It is good that our ability to see past things runs in the family because this house was pretty dated when my parents decided to place an offer. The previous owner loved anything Greek and she stopped at nothing. Columns, painted murals on the walls and floors...

2018 – I’m ready for ya

Last year was a great year. Truly! We bought our first house, grew as a company and shared many wonderful memories together as a team and family. Many of them you got to see on social media, etc. However, there was something missing in 2017. MegMade grew a substantial percent over the year before and our family is doing wonderfully, but it wasn't as great as I wanted it to be. I feel like new years offer new promises, but then...

Megmade is four + giveaway

Four years, FOUR YEARS! In so many ways it seems like it just began, but in so many other ways it feels like it has been a lifetime. Starting your own business and making it last is no joke y'all. We started painting furniture in our hallway with a little bitty newborn and that was just four years ago. Truly so fun to sit down on this day and think back on all that has happened to make us who we...

Cornelia Master Bedroom Reveal

Can I get a woot woot, we finally have a room done! I kind of felt like this whole process was going to go SOO much faster, but it sure didn't. It turns out designing your own house can be really hard. I know I sound trite and that everyone says that, but it is sooo true. With all that said, I am so excited with how our master bedroom turned out. It is a far cry away from what I...
