~between you & me signs GIVEAWAY~

I have so many Between You And Me signs in our house.
I love them so much. I think I have one for every season.

When I made over our basement/mud room I hung two outside the doors under the overhang.

And that holiday sign stayed, and stayed, and stayed, even through spring and part of the summer.
So I finally had them make me a new one inspired by…….
you'll see……..

No, I am not changing the name of my blog.
But I've always loved this saying, and looking around our property, and seeing all the boxwood, I knew it was a perfect fit.

This boxwood lines the path to the front door.

And going up the back steps to the back door, you guessed it, more boxwoods.

In front of the garage on either side of the door we have 2 huge boxwoods shaped in spheres.

 So it seemed fitting don't you think?

~Metrie trimwork~

When I recently made over our master bathroom, the first thing I knew I wanted to do was add some pizazz with mouldings.
That happened thanks to Metrie.

Before the walls were super boring:

But simply by adding trim, it brought the bathroom up so many notches!
Painting it all out was the cherry on top, and now I want to add mouldings to every room in our house!

The ceilings in our bathroom are high so I was able to get 3 levels of mouldings on top of one another for a real dramatic effect.

But my favorite I think is the architrave around the windows and doorways.

It just looks so "fancy" and I can't believe I did it all by myself!

If you want to take your walls from boring to "wow" think about using these types of mouldings and trim work!

~how can I knock this off?~

My friend Jill suggested these stools for my kitchen and I am now completely obsessed with them.
The only problem? 
They are $650…..a piece!

So now I am on the hunt for some rush stools that maybe I can paint? 
If anyone else has any suggestions or knows where I can find 
something similar for a lot less, I am all ears!

~a new chair & fun weekend~

My friends Jill and Allie came up from Portland for the weekend to participate in my flea market.
The boys were out of town so it was strictly a girls weekend, and we had a ton of laughs.
We had so much fun meeting new people and seeing dear friends. Thanks to all who came by!
Jill and Allie had beautiful things for sale and 
I scooped up this pillow fast. And when her chair I secretly wanted didn't sell, Jill found the perfect spot for it in our dining room. 
I just love getting a fresh set of eyes on our house.
I love the pop of color in the pillow, just what this room needed.

Butterfly print can be found here.

~living with a white sofa & boys & dogs~{the truth}

Many of you wonder how living with messy young kids, 2 big dogs, a rabbit, and a husband who likes to get dirty work out with our slipcovered sectional.

This is the sectional we have, and drumroll please………

Seriously, we have had catsup on it, wine, chocolate, you name it, even bunny poop.
{keeping it real here}
and it's the perfect sofa for us because the slipcovers are easily washable.

I wash the cushion covers often and the main slipcover about once a month.
I have also had it dry cleaned once, but it's not necessary.
{it was after our dishwasher caught fire and I needed to get the smoke smell out}

I have hung the covers to dry and I have also put them in the dryer on low to no heat.
The main cover is a bit of a wrestling match to get back on, but I just count it as a work out.

Really, if you are hesitating on buying a white or off white slipcovered couch due to the grit and grime of everyday life~don't.
It's so much easier to clean than an upholstered piece.
And look how comfy!

And also, the winner of the Stylish Rustic $100.00 giveaway is:

Congrats, be on the lookout for an email from me or Stylish Rustic!
