I don’t think I have written one post about home improvement or DIY projects all summer long! By the current state of my house I think I might be taking the whole “relax and enjoy summer with the kiddos” goal a little too far. And by too far I mean I’m sitting in my pjs at 11:36am writing this blog post after I spent the morning walking around my yard (in my pjs) taking pictures of things like rocks, leaves, and weeds, whilst my almost-14 year old slumbers the morning away. Heavenly summer.
I have two fun projects that are in the works to share with you. First off, my parents-in-law are about the move from the home they’ve lived in for 40 years to a brand new, gorgeous, low maintenance home and I couldn’t be happier for them. I told them that any pieces of furniture they don’t want to bring with them, I would be happy to take off their hands. I’m helpful like that 🙂
I was deee-lighted when they showed up with this chair and ottoman one day!
They’ve had this set for over twenty years and despite their seven grandchildren jumping all over them on a regular basis, both pieces are still in near-perfect condition. A coat of paint and new fabric will freshen them right up and I cannot wait to make them over! Can you see the potential???
Here are my inspirations:
