Best of July + August

Monday, September 1st, 2014

Greetings and Happy Labor Day everyone. It’s September y’all – wow, so hard to believe. And the last four months always seem to go the fastest right? I’m headed home to California tomorrow but wanted to pop in and share the not to miss posts from July and August, including a few DIY projects and the highlights from our ongoing home renovation.

The Nevada home makeover began by removing the popcorn ceilings; two great topics took place in the comments, first 2) counter vs. bar height in kitchens and then 3) disappearing microwaves. A few DIY projects 4) quotes with watercolor paints, 5) decorative box charging stations and 6) a new wall gallery and daybed in my daughter’s room.

Enjoy the rest of the long weekend!
