A few weekends ago my Sister came to visit during her spring break (She’s a teacher). My sister Samantha has her own apartment where she has been busy decorating it and turning into her home. Since she was coming to stay for an entire week, and she knows how much I love to craft, she decided to bring a project with her. She’s been looking for a cute storage bench to put in her bathroom and with no luck, she decided to just make on herself.
My Husband and I are pretty much all moved in. We officially close on Wednesday (tomorrow) and just have a few more little things to grab from the old house. I’m really pleased with how the new house is coming together (even if it is a rental). I was a little picky about the things i hung and the decor i brought it since our plan is to only be in this place for the next 9 months. The less work/moving in 9 months the better! It’s crazy to think that we’ve lived in Cali almost three years and moved three times already… I’m kind of a pro at this point.
This past weekend my husband and I had a day date, building an accent table to match the wood coffee table we built last weekend. If you missed the blog post you can read about it here… I found the original coffee table tutorial on Pinterest a while back and my husband and I created a side table to match. We LOVE the way our living room looks and how much more uniform it looks now that it has matching furniture and not a bunch of random pieces everywhere. We built it pretty much the same way as the coffee table. The only difference was that we didn’t need the support piece in the middle, since the table was small enough. You can find the original coffee table blog post here.
Some exciting news to share with you all!!! Our house is finally in escrow. Be praying it doesn’t fall through and that we can close in a quick 35 days. I’ve already been commuting to work for about a week and half, and the days have been long.. Not to mention i’ve been sick which makes the days feel even longer. Things are starting to feel like they are finally starting to fall into place. Now, if only we can figure out our next living situation.
Thanksgiving is right around the corner! I’m ecstatic to only have three days of work this week! (Happy dance).. I’m also excited to share my top 5 favorite Thanksgiving tablescapes. I wish I had my own creative center piece to share with you this year, but unfortunately I have yet to have had the chance to host a thanksgiving dinner. My hope is that next year I will finally get the chance to host. (yeah I know… Says no one ever…) But I really do! I love hosting and having family and friends over. It makes my heart happy to see everyone together doing life.
As always, happy weekend to you all! Today I’m sharing my Fall Decor (kind of a fall home tour, but just sharing some of my fall finds for those of you who want to decorate on a budget…. THANKS TARGET and Trader Joes. While I was doing my almost weekly Target visit I scored on some amazing FALL finds in the “dollar section.” I purchased some cloth napkins for $3 for a 2pack, an oversized fall scarf, that I’m using as a throw blanket in my living room (don’t judge me). and some cute fall stencils, and stickers. Not to mention there was tons of spring/summer items on sale! Today was a win.
This might be the first time I’ve actually finished my weekly blog post THIS early… I finally get a longish vacation starting on Saturday! Mexico hear come…. I can not wait, it’s much needed. I’m taking off 3 whole days of work (Unheard of for me!!) But enough about me bragging about my VK coming up. I have a super awesome DIY to share with you! If you read my blog post a few months back about my DIY peel and stick faux shiplap wall, you know that project was not my favorite…
Happy Sunday! Was it just me or did this weekend go by wayyyyyy to fast. seriously it came and went. My husband and I had a busy weekend redoing our plank wall behind our tv. We decided to go for a more permanent look by using real wood. #shiplap. However, this entire past month has been filled with getting ready for my first market! (Oct 1st). I think I finally have a good inventory. I have a few finishing touchups to do, and I am still look for one more furniture piece to add to the collection. (only two weeks left to find it and give it a makeover).
It’s Sunday, Which means another blog post coming’ your way! Sorry I didn’t share anything last weekend. I was in Illinois with my husband and his family. Can’t pass up a chance to jet ski, wake board, and boat all day long. Not to mention score an awesome tan. We had a blast! If you ever get a chance to visit Fox lake in Illinois I highly recommend it! #lakehairdontcare. Any who….. Today I’m sharing my garage tool display! I love the way it turned out and it was super easy…
