I was sold on our house the moment I laid eyes on the front door and porch! Red door? Check! Front Porch? Check! I knew before I walked inside that this had to be it.
I’m a desk girl…always have been and always will be. I try on occasion to work from a coffee shop or “on location” somewhere, but it never really ends up working for me. I get distracted and end up down a Pinterest rabbit hole, so for the most part, I work from my desk. Since it’s where I spend the majority of my time, I like to keep it looking…
Today I’m letting Ryan takeover the blog again, because let’s face it… I am not what you’d call “handy”! And, he did a pretty awesome job building the cedar planter, so I thought it would be fun for him to share just how he pulled it off. Also, I get e-mails, texts, and DMs about how he built this thing…
Buying a home for the first time is intense. You, quite literally, have ALL the feelings at the same time. You’re terrified you might not get the house you want, you find the house you want but it’s no longer available, you wonder why none of the houses your realtor is showing you look anything like the houses you’ve pinned on Pinterest.
I’m so excited to share Part 2 in our Backyard series (see Part 1 here) with you today AND to have Ryan takeover for the day. Like I mentioned last week, our backyard was his project, and it would be cruel to not let him show it off.
First off, let me just preface this backyard DIY post with 1. This project was NOT done in a weekend! and 2. I did little to no work. I picked out flowers and pots… and that’s it. Ryan did this whole thing by himself with the exception of two days when he had a friend help him move rocks.
Over on Pinterest I have been seeing so many pictures of the most gorgeous vanities! I feel like getting ready each day would be so fabulous. Putting on a simple outfit would be like getting pampered for the Oscars every morning. This chair, like the one above, makes any ordinary desk seem like the perfect vanity space! I love the simple impact a new space can make on your daily life.
