These past few weekends I have been extremely busy! From sun up to sun down, we have been painting our home. I haven’t had the time or energy to get around to making posts. I will be sure to post an update on our home once we finish doing some small touchups. Until then, here’s a quick project I was able to squeeze in this weekend.
Anyone who knows me, knows I have way too many shoes! Now that summer is just a few weeks away, it’s time to store away the old winter boots! Continue reading
Let me first start off by saying Happy Easter! This is our first Easter married so we’re trying to make the most of it despite the crummy rainy weather. We’re smoking a ham. outside. in the rain. =(
This time last year my husband and I were taking our engagement pictures. Here’s how they turned out: click here.
This week’s blog is pretty simple. With it being Easter this weekend and not having much time to work on a big project, I decided I would make my rendition of Kenzie’s welcome post. It would be perfect to write Happy Easter on for when guests come over for dinner or to use for any other holiday. Plus, it’s super easy to make and I had almost everything already at the house to make it.
So if you’re a regular on Pinterest, like I am, you’ve probably came across this lovely front porch gem:

Here’s my final product:
Ever since my wedding in September, I’ve been going through a “rustic chic” phase. To me, rustic chic means burlap, galvanized accessories, tree stumps, crates and lots of distressed furniture.
It’s everywhere in my home. Galvanized buckets for wood by my fireplace, galvanized tin jars for dog treats, antropologie inspired letters, tree stumps turned into candle holders, burlap for table runners… I could go on and on.
For now, lets start with my most recent project – My distressed/rustic jewelry hanger.
Here’s the finished project:
So this past week has been one crazy ride.
To start off, I was in Kansas City for a conference for the first half of the week. Then for the last 2 1/2 days of the week I was in northwest Arkansas for work.
When I got back home late Friday night all I wanted to do was rest… and paint the exterior of our house.
Painting the exterior has been on my to-do list ever since we moved in and now the weather has been finally nice enough to do so. I know I have to tackle this project soon before the weather gets crazy hot and over 100 degrees in the next couple weeks.
Our house has been this ugly cedar orange color ever since we moved in. We attempted to remove an old basketball net above the garage and found that it used to be this prettier dark brown color. Can you believe someone painted a house pumpkin orange? Ick!
So here’s my house: Brace your eyes, you’re about to be blinded!
