A great DIY Instagram account I found this week – love this cool wood art entry closet!
I don’t know if it’s because my girl is off at college and I miss her terribly, or that it’s the month of love or that springtime can’t come fast enough, but I’m really craving some PINK in my house! On a whim I bought this happy downloadable print on Etsy for a spot yet to be determined (it’s printable up to 24×36!) and I see some hot pink ranunculus from Trader Joes in my near future too!
Amazing looking Super Bowl recipes by one of my favorite food bloggers.
I am making these adorable brownies for the game tonight because it’s all about the food. Oh and the football…..we’re kind of fired up about that around here :).
Speaking of the Super Bowl, this is why we love this guy – he’s the kind of sports role model I’m glad my kids have.
I’ve had a few questions in the last few weeks about the marble tile in our bathroom. I LOVE all the marble tile I have installed, it’s such a beautiful and timeless material and even though it does require some care, I have no regrets!! (In fact there’s more marble to come in the near future!!)
Per one reader question, I have NOT sealed these floor tiles yet (and at this point, probably never will!) They are in our bathroom/laundry room which sees a lot of traffic and mess (if you have kids coming home from college with laundry I know you feel my pain). So far the polished marble has taken a beating like a champ – it definitely scratches but the variations in the marble disguise them.
I do seal the marble on our fireplace because smoke and soot can yellow marble over time. This is the sealer I like – I put it on once in the fall before fire season and once in late spring/early summer when I give the fireplace a good cleaning.
After removing the seagrass stair runner to strip the steps this week, I started looking around for a replacement runner and keep coming right back to seagrass. I love the look and it’s hard to beat it’s durability AND affordability! I noticed the one I have is on sale again, such a good deal. If you’re thinking about DIYing a stair runner, check out this post for a ton of affordable runners.
We haven’t been successful finding old salvage doors that will work for our pantry, but I came across these beauties this week and think something like this might be a great alternative (as regular doors, not on sliding hardware). What do you think????
One last LOVE of the week – did you hear about this beautiful, kindhearted girl?
Have a wonderful week ahead my friends!
