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.

7) We finally finished the porcelain wood plank tile floors, 8) thoughts about installing an outdoor shower, 9) the new teal blue sectional and 10) favorite contemporary fireplaces.

Enjoy the rest of the long weekend!

Happy weekend everyone, it’s roundup time!  Can’t believe it’s August already and later this month, back to school!  And then it’s fall, and then *gasp* the holidays.  What?  I know, don’t even say it.  Looking back, July was crazy busy, we accomplished so much but I’m reaaaalllly  hoping August is a lot slower, I could use a break!

Here are the top ten not-to-miss projects and posts from July.

1) We’re so proud of the Alma Project kitchen remodel; 2)  I hacked some IKEA Vittsjo shelves for the study;  3) I live with an orchid whisperer and so 4) I revamped this wood and white chest of drawers for him.

 

5) We built this X base table!  6) outdoor pillow covers are easy to sew 7) the garden is in bloom, take the tour; 8) inspired by PB Kids, I painted my friend’s son’s dresser; 9) hey we also built a potting bench, and 10) I shared ten tips for new bloggers.
