Happy TGI-Friday! It’s been a little while since I’ve shared a TGI-Friday post, but I always look forward to putting them together. They’re a bit random, but they’re full of so many good things, including my favorite new finds and behind the scenes things we’ve been working on, or upcoming projects we’ll be starting.
Lately, we’ve been focusing on all things baby. I’ve been putting my registry together and finalizing our design plan for her room, as well as the budget for all the pieces we’ll need to be collecting to make her room come together.
Like with most rooms, it’s going to be a mix of high and low priced items. We’ll splurge on some things and save on others, which is how I typically try to put together most of my spaces.
Because we recently converted the office bedroom into her nursery, that meant all of our office furniture needed to find a new home. Most of it went into the basement, which I can’t wait to show you once we have it a bit more put together. When we were moving things around, we decided to switch out our dining room table for the office table/ desk. I’ll share more on this next week, but let me just say what a big change this has made for our small dining room. Believe it or not, we actually have more space and the chairs can push under the table giving us a larger walkway on all sides. Here’s a little peek until I do a full blog post on it…
We’re getting ready to start building our kitchen vent hood! Cue the excitement! After searching high and low for a good vent option, we decided on this vent to build our hood around. I’ve had plenty of time to gather inspiration for our own hood and I keep coming back to this classic looking hood time and time again. (Side note: Have you taken the tour of this kitchen remodel? It’s a real treat!) We’ll be modifying the design slightly, but I can’t wait to get it built and in place! Once we do that, we’ll be able to finish several other projects in the kitchen! Cue even more excitement!
Another big project we’re getting ready to tackle, is our back yard. When I say this is a big project, I mean it. We have our work cut out for us, but we’re both so ready to have a nice backyard we can enjoy, instead of the bare dirt and weeds we currently have. We’re also gearing up to build some raised garden boxes (I’ll be sharing those as soon as we get them built), and adding plants to our front landscaping.
I’ve been working on the landscape design for our backyard and sprinklers will be going in soon!
Recently, I’ve been finding and saving several of my favorite Amazon finds in my Amazon Storefront. I get asked often where I find certain things, or products I love, so I wanted to create an easy source for you to find what you’ve been searching for. You can take a peak at the Storefront here, and I’ll be adding different categories as I find items I love!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend… even if we’re all stuck at home! We have plenty of projects to keep us busy! Phew!
Join me as I share several easy to implement ideas that will give your home a breath of fresh air and leave you feeling excited about the changes you see by the end of the week!
