How was your week? Mine was good â€”Â we wallpapered one of our living room walls, squeezed in some nice long walks, got started on a few other home repairs and worked on a D.I.Y. project that I can’t wait to share with you.
Our living room has always been pretty lifeless â€”Â with plain white walls and all black furniture, floors and even an all black globe, it just never felt welcoming. I’d searched high and low for the perfect wallpaper but after coming up empty-handed one too many times, we decided to stick with the tried-and-true Cole & Son Woods (our dining room is done in the same pattern and we already had some left over to get started). Next up: colored throw pillows and well, some more color in general so people actually want to hang out in there! Additional room details: we stained the floors black ourselves, the two black chairs are Ebay knock-offs, the curtains are from Urban Outfitters and the blanket is the Cross by Pia WallÃ©n.
One of my style resolutions at the starting of the year was to try new things â€”Â patterns, colors and silhouettes. This dress, though not my typical style, was love at first sight. Full debut coming soon!
We got on a roll and decided it was time to revamp the workbench in the basement. Our basement is dark, ancient and a little bit scary so we picked out the brightest paint possible to paint the workbench with. Have you ever seen such a great paint name?!
One of my favorite things to do on the weekends is to head to the park and get a good walk in with Rocky. Of course he attempts to torment dogs 10 times his size which is always good for a laugh!
I don’t have the chance to participate in nearly enough D.I.Y. projects. Joey had an idea I never would have considered on my own and after finishing up my design, he turned it into something really special. I can’t wait to show you!
I feel like the summer is passing by so quickly. In year’s past, one of my favorite haunts was the fire pit at the Doug Fir so my friend and I caught up for a few hours last night. Brings back so many good memories. Have a great weekend â€”Â any projects or plans you can’t wait to get started on?
