Lately

The days have been blurring together, and while that makes for some slow blogging, it makes for a better fun life lived.   The weather had been gorgeous and now it decided that it's summer with temps in the mid to high 80s.  I swear, every year it goes from super windy and cold into humid summer and Spring gets skipped.  Oh well, as long as we get our playground time in we are happy campers.

I finally got around to stenciling the closet.  I gave a sneak peek on Instagram, so most of you know I went with the roses stencil.  I still need to hang a bar for the clothing and add few other touches, but then I'll share a whole post and my experience with stenciling.



In other (huge) news, our counters were installed yesterday!  We went with quartz counters, and even with the chipped cabinets and jacked up ripped down backsplash it looks a million times better.  We still have the old counter on the island since the butcher block top isn't in yet.  I can't wait to see the other changes up next.



Lots of other random things going on, like finding time sew the pom pom trim on Ashlynn's curtains, paint two jumbo canvases for some DIY living room art, and turn everything we own into a balance beam or uneven bars.  And with that, we are off to gymnastics!

  5. I am obsessed with that rose wall!! Please do share where you got the stencil - I have this crazy idea that I am going to create my own tablecloth for P's first birthday and a stencil sounds like a smarter idea than my original plan of hand drawing!

  7. I have to double check with our contractor, but I think its Calcutta Grey by QuartzMasters. I'll find out for sure though and post it when I share non-iPhone pics ;)
