The small town Colorado girl who’s obsessed with home and everything that entails! I’m a creative, a decorator, a day dreamer, a huge fan of scones, and I’m passionate about loving where I live and making a home.
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.
(You can read all about the wicker chair here.)
Then I shared another really easy way to use driftwood with my Driftwood Basket. The texture is fabulous! Really.
Looking for a really easy idea dink tag idea? Look no further than these drink tags!
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!
