My friends at the Kentucky Derby challenged me to come up with a fun way to celebrate Derby no matter where you live and I thought that this Kentucky Derby fascinator could be made quick and on the cheap for all your Derby parties. If you don’t have a derby party to go to… no sweat… Just make one and hang out with the family and watch the greatest two minutes in sports at your house.
I told you last week that I am helping decorate my nephew’s high school graduation party. I get so excited about pulling it together…I may have a sickness….My sister in law doesn’t enjoy it as much—so she was thrilled when I volunteered;)
I made this sweet graduation gift card box…for about $5 and a bit of time. I thought that if you have any grads in your house this year you may want to put one of these together too:)
A long long time ago I shared on Instagram a few pictures of the headboard that we made for our master bedroom. I wanted to kind of break down the steps for you in case you wanted to make one for your home. Often times I feel like I shared something with you and then I go back and realized I never did so here goes….
I realized the other day when I was trying to get rid of some pictures on my computer that I never shared with you this simple woodworking project that we did in Emily’s room this past summer. She has a small little nook in her room that we weren’t really sure what we would do with it. Originally we thought that a dresser may fit well in this space but the window frame is a little too close and does not allow much room especially if you have to open a drawer. So what we thought we would do is build a small floating shelf to have a little makeup area. It’s nice because it’s right next to the window so it provides some natural light. Pretty easy project and a great use of a odd little nook area.
(color on the walls in her room is Ballet Slippers by Valspar. We used rustoleum Weathered Grey stain for the shelf.)
Hey yall! Soooooo we SOLD the lakehouse! We went back and forth a couple of time with our buyers and the deal was good enough to settle. They are a cash buyer—a young family ready to make some fun updates to the house and make it their own. We hope to close this month so I will be going down there to gather the rest of our things. It is bitter sweet…but I would say more sweet than bitter. We are thrilled that another family will start to enjoy this house and the lake—while we start to concentrate a bit more on making the beach house fit our family better. All good things:)
