    Checking things off my checklist ~ project #3

    Happy Monday y’all! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I worked on quite a few projects that I have been dragging my feet to finish, including my powder room. I mean, seriously, when did I start it? March!!! That’s real life though, some projects come together quickly, while others take so long! Let’s take a quick look at the before… You might be wondering , what the hold up was? The wallpaper went up quick and easy, but I measured wrong and had to order another roll, which was on back order, so it took quite a few weeks to receive it. Once I got it, the wallpaper was…

    Furniture Transformation Thursday ~ vintage cabinet

    Happy Thursday, friends!!! I hope your week has been amazing!! I have been trying to soak up every last minute of summer break, with my sweet boys! Less than one month left of summer break! Today, I have to share with y’all a furniture transformation that is going to knock your socks off! My sister found this blue cabinet on the Facebook marketplace. She fell in love with the shape, but not the color. She decided that she was going to strip the paint off, and paint it in a white chalk paint. She started to strip the paint, slowly, layer by layer, and then discovered that she had created…

    Thrifted Treasure ~ July

    Happy Monday, y’all!! I hope your weekend was amazing! I feel quite accomplished, I stayed inside all weekend, trying to get my house clean, and work on several unfinished projects that I have going on in my house. I still have a lot to finish, but I made progress, which is a huge win for me! After all the room switches happened here, I am finally getting around to helping my boys decorate their “new” rooms. I started in my seven year old’s room. It seemed only natural, whereas all the room switch-a-roos happened because he wanted a “cool” room, and was sick of living in a “cute” room with…

    My Favorite Things About Blogging

    Happy Thursday, y’all!! This week has been crazy busy! My little guy, who just turned seven last week, decided that it is time that he has his own room. These moments are always so bittersweet, excited that he is growing up and wants a little more independence, but also sad that he’s growing up and not my little baby anymore!! In a moment of insanity, I agreed to help my three oldest boys switch rooms, and, of course, redecorate. My youngest is the only one that stayed in his room. Thank goodness that one of my boys like their room! I would have been heartbroken to take down the book…

    Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop 337

    Welcome to the Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop! It is well into summer and, you may not believe it but, “back-to-school” is about to appear! The principal of the school where I work just contacted me to say that my class roster is already full! Our first day of school is way into September, so this is very unusual. We even have a waiting list. Now, school where YOU live probably begins much earlier so thinking about school clothes and supplies during July may be a very familiar theme. I expect to see some great back-to-school posts coming along in our party soon! Last week’s party was a great one. Here…

    Coffee Table Dilemma…sell or keep?

    Happy Thursday!! I cannot tell you how much I am loving summer! It’s my most favorite time of the year! I love having an open schedule, lazy days, play days, and adventure days. It’s all so much fun! For those of you that don’t know, I have four boys (13, 10, 7, 4). You can probably imagine how all the energy and craziness that goes on here can lead to huge arguments, and sometimes even a full blown fist fight. Four little men, all trying to be the alpha! That is the one part of summer break is hard. Fortunately, thus far, summer break has been so good to us!!…

    Top Shelf Clearance Challenge ~ July

    Happy Monday, friends!! I hope y’all had a wonderful weekend! It was sunny and warm here! I spent a lot of time outside, and also did a little shopping…I had to find something for this month’s clearance challenge. To my surprise, I found sooo many cute things on clearance! Keeping to the rules of this challenge, I only spent $15 on clearance items. I was able to get a little shelf for $10, and a sweet, little white vase for $4, both from Hobby Lobby. They are having a big clearance event right now. All spring/summer merchandise is marked down! I thought the shelf was so cute as-is, but I…
