hey there ya'll- nik & i are changing everything up because they tell me it is a woman's prerogative. name it and claim it i say
we are thinking of a more of a coastal cottage vibe. I am already thinking I may have to change my blog header ... again! ugh! anyway...back to the subject--what always draws me in magazines and blogs is coastal cottage. i seem to be able to come undone-
there is no rhyme or reason for this other than i know when i walk in my home i want to sigh. i want it to embrace me
whispering ..rest. let all the dirt and grime from the days struggles fall away. this is your safe place
is it that way for you to?
and the red gingham curtains weren't doing it for me so into the shop they go
i don't have that gift you know the one? the choosing the colors- furniture...the one that makes those crazy amazing boards...yeah...i am so not that girl
so what do you do? you copy and give credit
our small main living area is painted benjamin moore's ashwood. ONE of our favorite colors... we haven't tired of it yet. we found the color in this post
it is high time we start loving on the rest of the house don't ya think?
so we scoured our favorite blogs and our pinterest pins and came up with these coastal cottagey colors
so what does one do when they suck at painting? well they hire their sis in law. the perk in this is that you don't have to get ready..you just climb out of bed and open the door!
the PAINT COLORS!
nikki's room was painted behr's irish mist
my office was painted benjamin moore's gray owl lighted 50% per layla's instructions:) and the bathroom will be painted benjamin moore's gray lake -- the demo will take place over the fourth of july weekend...yay!! now in dakota's room we ( meaning nikki & I ) painted gray owl and we planked one wall. he told us the truth that the gray owl looked to blue and he wasn't happy so this time I let him choose. not sure what to stain the plank wall yet.....gotta do more scouring...ha!
here is a sneak peek at our bathroom floor tile...eek! it should be in any day so be watching Instagram for the in between stuff k?
Carissa my sis in law has been an answer to prayer. you've had those right? it was just timing. she has also been helping me catch up on all our sign orders so we can re-open june 28 with a blank slate..or darn near anyway. we have been kickin some butt!
girls! i am putting down roots in this home. it isn't ours we rent. it is the kids nana's home so there is a long history here. I have struggled with for the last year but for whatever reason God placed us here and i am going to choose daily to trust His plan. it has made all the difference to just rest in that trust instead of fighting it.
::SUMMER PAINT PARTY..say WHAT?
carrissa has talked us into a summer painting party. to paint the outside of our house. our BRICK house? doesn't everyone have a paint party? be watching cause we will ask for your input on the color we paint it k?
