    Looks like a challenge!

    I painted our office/guestroom this weekend (it's still waiting for Ryan's touchups around the ceiling because I was too short to do a very neat job…). We chose Benjamin Moore's Whispering Spring, which will also be in our bedroom. I also got a new (to me, it's antique) rug and Ryan got a tv. Expensive weekend so now we're on a spending hiatus!

    Can't wait to see the direction this goes. I actually love the color.

    I'm guessing you are going for that great chartreuse color with grey and accents or coral or hot pink.

    Sounds like you have a busy week ahead.

    I sewed new curtains for my bedroom and I am in love with them.

    Love the wall color your sister and her roomies chose. Can't wait to see how you revamp it!

    Yummy! A cereal bar… I would go broke eating there. I love a good bowl of cereal with milk.

    Can't wait to see what you have in store for that little space!

    Pizza By Elizabeth??? NO ONE ELSE I KNOW besides my family has even been there. Well, I do live in Boston, so that might explain it, but Greenville does have pleasant things to offer, yes? My mom's family is from DE, and my grandparents lived in Centerville just two miles away from PBE. Reading your post brings back memories…

    Good luck with the small space – i can certain relate. 🙂

    The kid in me is screaming "I wanna go to the cereal bar TOO!" Great, now she's in the corner pouting.

    I'm going to be in Miami (to visit my SIL actually!) at the end of the month so I'm definitely bookmarking the Cereal Bowl as a must stop for us.

    Looks like you had a great weekend and I can't wait to see your inspiration board and how you manage to work with that bold green!

ON THE BLOG

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.

Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

Budget Friendly Bar Carts

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
