Best of May

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

Hello friends, how’s your summer shaping up? I spent the morning going through my linen closet clearing out everything I don’t use anymore. One closet down, plenty more to go in anticipation of a yard sale later this month.

I’m taking a break this week from the takeaway series but I’ll bring it back soon – meanwhile, here are the top ten not-to-miss posts from May!

I spent a day sprucing up my friend’s outdoor room; our home was featured in Refresh magazine (plus a peek behind the scenes). Here’s the how-to on the DIY mosaic tile outdoor table and a creative spin on Hawaiian quilting with this aloha inspired pillow.

I kicked off a summer campaign for Scotch Blue Painter’s Tape and Home Depot with this textured panel dresser makeover, made some fabric covered storage boxes, and shared a full home tour.  Three fun decorating topics appeared on the blog in May, including decorating around a leather sofa, the power of pink, and keeping your sanity during a home renovation.

Enjoy your day,

In other news, we made some real progress on the window seat this weekend, will show you this week!  Today I’m groovin’ to this fun song by Spencer Day while I paint the new frame and install the cabinet doors – if you’re a Bublé/Connick Jr. fan like me you’ll dig it too.

Have a great day…
