July In Review

Happy Friday!

I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s excited for the weekend! I’m hoping the rain will hold off so that I can finish a few outdoor projects…

In case you missed anything last month, or you’re new, here’s everything that was on the blog!

I began the month by showing you a super simple swing arm lamp makeover. I love how it turned out and can’t believe it took me so long to do it.

Then I shared another really easy way to use driftwood with my Driftwood Basket. The texture is fabulous! Really.

I also decided that I’m going to host a summer party. Seriously. And a summer party needs an ice bucket, which just so happens to be made from a trash can.

July was a huge progress month for our laundry room. I’m thrilled with these DIY laundry room crates. I love them! And use them every. single. day.!

We also finished the laundry room plank wall. It completely changed the room. And I’m in love.

I’ve wanted to make a mason jar soap pump for so long. Now that I have one, I’m pretty sure I’ll be making one for the kitchen and every bathroom in the house!

I also shared my DIY burlap flag. It tested every ounce of my patience, but I couldn’t be happier with the results!

After wandering through the craft store, I couldn’t help but turn this amazing slab of wood into a rustic chalkboard serving tray. It makes me happy.

A while back, I was lucky enough to snag a free outdoor metal round table… All it needed was a new top… A fence picket table top.

And, I ended the month by sharing our recent wheat harvest. Needless to say, I’m really looking forward to fall decorating…

I’m still a little bit shocked that we’re already into August… I guess time flies when we’re having fun!

And July was a lot of fun!

Here’s to August!
