Here I am again, e’reone! I hope you were able to squeeze some sort of inspiration from yesterday’s post. If you missed it, you can catch up here. Now let’s dive in to the next two projects, shall we 🙂 One of my few talents (ahem) is garbage picking. I’m not sure why I love it so, but I do. My kiddos call it my superpower. I’ll take it. But somehow, beautiful pieces of trash end up stuffed in my car. All. the. time. And these chairs were my newest find. I found them on the w
OK, I know that most of you are thinking “nothing is free”. Of course I don’t technically mean “free” like someone gifted me everything to decorate with. (Although that would be awesome.) What I am talking about is my FAVORITE kind of decorating….the decorating where you use stuff you already own- and whether you’re just moving it around and staging it differently, or DIYing the heck out of it- THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS! If you’re like me, it’s easy to get discont
It’s been a while, yo. But to my defense, soccer started for all THREE of my kiddos and yours truly is coaching Izzy’s team this year. Oh- and I had jury duty too. Mmmmhhhmmmmm. That’s where I been. So, in my last post, some walls came down and the walk-in pantry had been started. Below is a picture of where we left off…. and one of where we are today. The walls have been mudded and sanded and floors have been filled in and restained (still needs one more coat). Next will b
Good news! We are making progress in the kitchen…even though it still “looks” the same. My farmhouse sink arrived last week, HALLELUJAH! (Confession: I sit out in the garage just to stare at it. Don’t judge me.) And we ordered the counters yesterday which was the biggest part of this process. After shopping around, we finally found a great contractor who has remnants in his bone yard that you can choose from. If you’ve ever shopped for counters, most places have you order by
Around 6 months ago, before we moved, I revamped Izzy’s room. Yeah, I know. Well, the WHOLE truth would be that my husband painted, moved stuff around and hung curtains, but I made everything pretty. That counts, right? Anyway, she had pretty pale pink walls, a queen four post bed with a beautiful armoire for her clothes, a dollhouse, a kitchen set and a desk. See picture below. When we tried to set up her queen bed in her new room we just about croaked. That’s literally all.
If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you’re already in the loop that the Thurman Fam just moved. The process started because of my addiction love for looking at houses. I can’t help myself sometimes. But it quickly turned into something much more of a needed journey than we had realized. The market is really hot over here in the TC so when the market analysis came back on our house it was quite a bit higher than we were hoping for. First confirmation that we were to sel
Seriously though. I’m a garbage picker. And gosh darn’t, I’m proud of it. If I were to take you on a tour of my house, it would consist of me pointing and saying, “I got that for free….I garbage-picked that….I found that for free on Craigslist….” I’m a sucker for all things FREE and my husband sure doesn’t mind (except when I ask him to install a chandelier during the Final Four game…) But I digress. My latest blog-worthy find is a chandelier I found for free at a department
