Do you guys have spring fever yet? I miss my extra hour of rest already but I am really looking forward to spring. I’m ready to feel the warmth of the sun on my skin, relax in the hammock while reading a magazine and sip lemonade from a homemade lemonade bar. We have a lot of plans for the outside areas. We eat outside a lot and we can’t wait to make the entire outdoor space feel more like an extension of our indoor living spaces.
Welcome to the Something to Talk About Link Party #7! I hope you guys had a happy weekend.
One year ago this week, I was standing in the aisle of a local craft supply store debating the amount of baskets that were in my shopping cart. As I made my way to the check out line, I silently wondered if it would be worth it. I mean did I really NEED these baskets to help keep my pantry organized?
After months of struggling to find the time to get these projects finished, I am so excited this day is finally here. It’s an absolute gift to be able to express your creativity in any given space but when it came to the kitchen which was not my domain, there were a few requests: the maple cabinets could not be painted, there had to be a kitchen herb garden and finally there has to be as much open space for cooking and prep work as possible. Is that a challenge I hear?
I lobbied hard for a color of grout named Bone but in the end we chose Alabaster. It was supposed to be a pale gray that I think is going to look really nice given we have black granite countertops, maple cabinets and a wall colored aptly named Cream in My Coffee.
One of my home goals this year was to finish the kitchen. There’s wasn’t a major renovation planned just a few updates one of them being adding a backsplash. It didn’t take us very long to decide we wanted to use white subway tile in a basket weave pattern. But we struggled for months to find the time to actually complete the project. I knew I had to get an action plan together including a timeline. I gave myself until the end of February to finish the task and called my bestie S to the rescue.
