The sad before:

The very happy after:

So excited. You have no idea how obsessed I am with this space. Pretty sure I want to spend as much time as possible sitting on the porch. Here is the price breakdown:
Ceiling paint // $20
Table set (craigslist) // $30
Table paint // $15
Cushions (ebay) // $30
Hanging planter (owned, from ikea) // $12
Table plant (walmart) // $13
Striped rug (owned, from ikea) // $3
Adirondack rocker (owned) // $40
B&W pillow (garden ridge) // $15
Adirondack table (garden ridge) // $25
Yellow planter (home depot) // $14
Ceramic bird (antique store) // $2.50
Total // $219.50 (minus what I owned) = $164.50
Not to bad. I had hoped (unrealistically) to spend around $100. But I'll get over it. ;)

Now you're all invited over for summer bbq's!!!


a victory cheer

I have some exciting announcements, but I'm waiting on a few wrap ups.

So what to do when waiting to post? Why, make bunting of course!

My office walls are in dire need of some personality, so here I have installment #1. Professionally crafted with staples, spray paint, and hot glue. I thought it was fun....until I discovered awesome bunting here. Now I will be restless till I get my grubby hands on that aqua burlap.

Anywho. Coming soon (I promise) will be a much more exciting post, that will make YOU do a victory cheer. Hooray!


home sweet home

So super excited to share my recent projects with you.

First, the latest addition to my bathroom door.

Easiest craft EVER. I found these little wood cutouts at Hobby Lobby and used some scrapbooking paper I had on hand. Simply glue them down with mod podge and then trim the eccess paper around the edges. The knubbs presented a little difficulty, but still easy enough to re-make if I decide I want color patterns.

And some personality for the mailbox! Below is the outside slot, which my husband suggested we paint it to have a mouth with fangs, so it appears to eat the mail..............

And the inside. {before}

And {after}

Using a decorative knob from Hobby Lobby and an order of vinyl letters from Words Anywhere, I'd say an improvement, yes?

Lastly, the other sweet in my home today. I entered a giveaway from inspired by charm and WON! I just had to share my delightful little prize, pinapple blueberry jam, it was delicious! Maybe I've only had grocery-store-grape, but I was never a big jam person. Until now. I also acquired lovely bakers twine—on spindles, take a look at Michaels blog and check them out, so great! Thanks again Michael.

Happy weekend friends!
