Hey guys! Wanted to share a quick and easy project I tackled this past weekend... DIY Shelving! I am using them for plants (because #therearemany), but you could use these anywhere. Granted, we had most of the supplies needed on hand from finishing the stairs; however, a quick trip to your local hardware store would … Continue reading DIY (Plant) Shelving
Goodness, life gets busy... especially this time of year! My theory is that it's partly because everyone is throwing festivals and football parties like it's a blissful 68 degrees outside. We go because "Fall!" and that's what you're supposed to do, yet we all stand in the heat and melt because it still feels like the inside … Continue reading Updates!
I headed out to the Gas Lamp Antique Mall yesterday to kick off the week! I keep a running list of "always looking for" and antique markets are a great place to find unique pieces. Several of the things I am always keeping my eyes peeled for: Trays: Big, small, wicker, glass, wood, you name it... I love … Continue reading Mondays are for Antiquing!
This week has been quite different than expected! Last Friday, I was working at the house and managed to mangle my foot up pretty badly. I will spare you the details and gore, but suffice it to say that there have been a lot of stitches, x-rays, and doctors. Right now it is healing well, I … Continue reading Recovering Dining Room Chairs!
This week has been full of progress! When I look at the grand scheme, it's easy to get discouraged because sometimes it seems likes 1 step forward and 3 steps back. Most of my reno time is limited to when our son naps or after he goes to bed at night, so some days it feels like it's moving … Continue reading Baby Steps!
I am a list person. Always have been. My mom says she quit giving me a verbal schedule of our plans for the day when I was about 5 because if it didn't go exactly as planned, I was destined for a come-apart. I'm a bit more flexible these days, but it is rare that I don't … Continue reading Downstairs To-Do’s.
A little less talk and a lot more action, people. It's what this girl needed. Here is a recap of my most recent trip into Providence Thrift and a quick DIY with one of my finds! It took a lot (and I mean A LOT) of restraint not to buy this big ole chunky necklace. … Continue reading Thrift Stop & a DIY!
The home inspection is complete (and went relatively well!!). We are now in the process of negotiating those details, and even closer to an actual move. So, of course, my mind immediately runs 1,000 mph figuring out when I get to pick up my first paint brush/demolish something. The dining room of this new house … Continue reading Feed Me.
What a week. And it's only Hump Day! Before we moved to the rental we are in now, we lived over in a sweet little neighborhood called Belvoir. One of the best things about being on that side of town was: The Thrift Store is located on Brainerd Road, and it is a gold mine because … Continue reading New Finds & New Mercies.
I come by my love for decorating honestly. My sweet mom could make two chopsticks and a plastic Easter basket look like something from Southern Living's front cover. My husband and I are in the contract/inspection stages of buying our new home in Nashville, and I will soon have plenty of opportunity to stretch my decorating legs. We are currently in the three … Continue reading Small Pieces of a Big Plan.
