Random thoughts on a trying to be sunny Monday morning:
1. Did you watch the Trading Spaces premier?
PLEASE SAY YOU DID.
I need to discuss. If you didn’t watch it yet it’s important to note that because of inflation, the designers are now given $2000 instead of $1000—and I have to say this. As someone who tries to cut design corners and decorate a room for less—I was disappointed. I think $2000 is a lot of money—especially if you shop thrift stores and the side of the road. I just wanted them to do more with that money.
2. I also went to go see “I Can Only Imagine” this weekend. BEST MOVIE EVER. I don’t want to give away any spoilers if you haven’t seen it yet.
But there is a scene where Dennis Quaid will break your heart.
My eyes are still crying.
3. I can’t wait to show you the changes in the office. Spoiler alert. We added curtains.
4. I went junk store shopping with a friend and you’ll never believe what I found.
The inside of a piano.
It’s going on the wall. Details to come.
Let’s see what the internet has been up to.
It’s been a good week.
Last week I went to lunch with my new friend Amy.
She is funny and witty and brilliant and amazing and she inspires me every day.
This is her new kitchen.
And here’s what she cooks in it.
13 DIY projects inspired by Fixer Upper.
She had me at this wood bead project from a thrift store bracelet.
Loved this post about tips for using real plants.
I need more real plants in my life.
And this sweet home tour.
I love those chairs—they make me think of spring.
And in random news this week:
List of best period drama miniseries
Things you might forget to clean
14 items you might not think to buy from IKEA
This before and after bathroom (especially that tile wall)
This adorable DIY
All about lavender
This outdoor space
This adorable sewing station (it’s about five pics down)
Love this settee idea in this before and after kitchen
This bedroom built-in (second pic down)
This makes me sad and happy all at the same time.
It’s the end of an era.
One more for the road.
And just in case you were wondering what I was going to do with my piano keys?
I was inspired by the piano art from this house tour.
Happy Monday to you. 🙂
