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.
Hey there friends! I’ve been sharing lately on Instagram of the #greatroomswapof2019 that’s been happening here at our house. As soon as our older kids started moving on to college and beyond the younger kids were always vieing for the larger room. Out of the three bedrooms, one is in the corner and quite a big bigger than the other two. So, as always, when our daughter moved out, our middle son was asking to switch rooms. This always means painting, moving furniture, taking stuff off the wall, putting stuff on the wall, etc. This time also included making my youngest son go through his
hoard stuff. And, yes, since middle son was moving, youngest son decided he would move too, so more of all of the same. But….the best part of it all was I realized we would actually have an empty bedroom. I thought about (for about a second) making it into an official guest room, but then I decided to make it all mine. That’s right, a dedicated craft room + home office! I’m so excited!! Here is what we are starting with.
Happy February friends! It’s the month of love, but it’s also my birthday month! 😀 I haven’t done any Valentine’s decorating this year. Not sure why, just haven’t really felt like it. Haha! But, as I was moving things around in the kids rooms this weekend I found these tea towels that I bought from IKEA a while back and decided that they would make adorable Valentine’s napkins. Did you know tea towels = napkins?? Ha! Well, I think these tea towels are a little on the small side so I think they will work just fine! Maybe a little big but fine. 🙂
Hey there friends! I’m coming at you today with the first DIY project of the year! Yay!! A few days before Thanksgiving I got two new chairs for our family room. When I did it threw everything off. Haha!! Not really but… here’s how things looked at Christmas.
I don’t know about you but I am so excited that this day is finally here!! It has been so hard to not share more peeks with you over the last couple of weeks. So many things that I’m loving that I just wanted to show you, but I knew I needed to wait and keep you in suspense for this day!! But, now that we are finally here, I’m going to let the pictures do most of the talking, because there’s a lot of them and because, let’s be honest, that’s what you’re really interested in anyway!! HA! If you’ve missed any of the weekly updates then you might want to go back and check those out.
