Future Patio Plans

I’ve been dreaming of maximizing the use of this space since we moved in. We have a gorgeous backyard with dining but holy does it ever get HOT! So the covered front patio will be perfect on those hot sunny days! We love sitting out here and watching the sunsets as we live on a mountain and have a view and the sunsets are so colorful! The space seems a bit cold with all the vinyl decking and siding so adding lots of color and texture will sure warm up the space. Making this space kid friendly is so important…

White Lighting Favorites

It’s not hard to tell that I’m in love with white but my love for white lighting is next level. We have 4 white chandeliers in our home and years later I am still in love with them. They aren’t hard to keep clean as the dust doesn’t show up on them like black lighting. We get asked a lot about the white orb chandelier in our dining room and it’s been so fun to style. I was able to find the exact light HERE. The chandelier in our front entrance is the Parson 4 Light Chandelier but it’s sadly…

Well clearly her friends were just as excited as we had 23 children attend! Now I needed a theme and when researching I found a lot of Kung…

Let me start off by saying if you’ve ever wanted to paint your piano, do it! It really only took 3 hours of painting and the drying time was so quick that I did 4 coats total in 2 days. 3 coats of the Succulent Chalk Paint by SHELTER because I did thin coats and 1 top Satin varnish. No tapping was done for the keys as I just bought a small paint brush and pushed the keys down and painted behind. I’ve used many chalk paints before and I LOVE this SHELTER chalk paint. I only used 2/3rds of…

Simple Organized Pantry

Well I’m finally sharing our finished pantry! WOW I am embarrassed of the before. We moved 2.5 years ago and never had a pantry in our previous home so no containers or baskets were on hand. Before I had the sideboard in the dining area I had all my china and vases in the pantry as well. The pantry was packed with so much stuff it was impossible to a “organize” it all. I would often clean out the pantry but with no containers it would “blow up” quickly into this mess (insert hubby and children…okay and me)! With so…
