Summer Styled Bookshelves

Hey there! How are ya?? I have to be honest, styling bookshelves used to intimidate me. Like for real. I was awful at it. But, over the years, I’ve learned a thing or two from people who seemed to be naturals at it, and now I think I’m not too bad. HA!! I also have to admit that I hadn’t touched our bookshelves in our family room for several years. Aside from adding in and taking out a few seasonal items here and there, they stayed basically the same. Here are some before pics that I had to hunt for, because I have become a terrible blogger in that I keep forgetting to take before pics!! (not great quality because they are phone pics and not meant to be before pics haha)

Updated Thrift Store Candlesticks

I haven’t blogged about a thrift store update in a while! I got these candlesticks several months ago and they have been sitting in my garage. I had always intended on painting them, but I had just not gotten around to it yet. But, when I started re-styling our built-ins, I found the perfect place for them. They just weren’t the perfect color…at all.

Frazzled Friday – Sometimes I Can’t Do All The Things (and what I have been doing)

Tap, tap, tap. Anyone there?? I knew it had been a while since I sat down to blog, but I didn’t really think it had been two months!  😯  I’ve missed it so much honestly. I think I mentioned before that after Christmas I took a temporary part time job. And, it has literally rocked my world. I’m so used to having all the time in the world to do all the things. But, now I have about half the time that I had before, and I can’t seem to get anything but the necessities done. And, even those aren’t always getting done because I’m so ridiculously tired!! UGH! I’m glad it’s only temporary! But, don’t be surprised if I go dark again for another few weeks after this post. lol
