BOTB 1.9.15

Friday, January 9th, 2015

Hello and happy weekend! I spent my entire day cleaning and organizing at the fixer house here in Las Vegas before leaving town, and also finishing up a few projects, I’ll share a progress report next week. I’m excited to get home and relax after a week of painting, researching, and running around. The playoffs are this weekend and we will be watching, who are you rooting for?

I’m excited to bring back the Best of the Blogosphere series this year, where Amanda and I scout out favorite makeovers and DIY projects from around the web. Enjoy this latest collection of inspiring spaces and ideas!

How lovely is this elegant and airy master bedroom makeover at The House Diaries? Such clever built in storage additions!

BOTB 12.12.14 – Holiday Edition

Friday, December 12th, 2014

Weekend greetings! This week we’ve been pummeled with rainstorms here in Northern California, the flooded streets resulting in school cancelations for two days. The weather conditions have changed our schedule around but it’s been a welcome one, we’ve adapted with more holiday movies and hot chocolate, rough life. :) With the twinkle lights from the tree and the glow of the fireplace, I’m enjoying the extra moments of stillness.

I’m finally done with my holiday shopping which has also contributed to my laziness this week. This post marks the last of the ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ for the year (I’ll resume the posts in January) so it’s fitting that the final one is holiday related. Enjoy these favorite projects from bloggers around the web!
