"That's so Wrong" Wednesday Vol. 13

Embrace the lawn art, people. You know you want to.

I'm thinking about starting my own lawn art collection. What do you think?

Until next time...

Better Late Than Never

Most people will tell you, "well, it's better late than never," but when you have family coming to stay in your guest room "better late than never" doesn't really apply to the delivery of your window coverings. Late stinks. 

My parents came into town this past weekend and their arrival was the deadline for getting some window treatments up in the guest room. The hubbs and I decided on some curtains from West Elm to add a bit of pattern into the guest room. Unfortunately, the item we wanted was sold out online and in our local store so I had to call a handful of stores to finally track down the four window panels that I needed. I was pumped...until the tracking information told me it was being delivered on Monday. (Mom and Dad were leaving on Sunday. So not helpful.)

So although Mom and Dad just got some classy sheets over the windows while they were here, our West Elm curtains are now up, in place and looking good (if I do say so myself) in the guest room. 

I guess we need another set of visitors now.

Until next time...

Has anyone noticed the accent pillows YHL used in their blue guest room? Look familiar? Hmmm... Seriously, please get out of my head.

At least the curtains I ordered from West Elm aren't a blue circle pattern. Now if they would just get here already.

Until next time...

Use Whatcha Got

If God gives you lemons, make lemonade...

If God gives you random leftover home decor items make art? (Eh, it kinda works...although I'm sure he didn't want me to buy the random leftover crap to begin with.) 

Anyway, here's what I was up to on Sunday:

Project 1: 

  • Woven Placemat
  • IKEA silver frame (been waiting to be put to use)
  • small IKEA mirror (1 of 4)
  • Left over Guest Room wall paint
  • Paper from IKEA frame

All of this eventually became a new mirror for our guest room.


Project 2:
  • Old Target Artwork (was originally in our apartment bathroom)
  • Left over white trim paint
  • Pottery Barn Keys
  • Gorilla Glue
All that equals some fabulous new art for our living room that I love.

Yay for simple free artwork completed in a hour! Woop, Woop.

Until next time...

It gives a quick glimpse of some of the homemade items I've created. Shoot me an email or make a comment if you'd like a tutorial post on how to create your own. I'd love to share the all the details with you!

Until next time...

Surprise Shower Celebration

One of our small group couples are moving away from Nashville and back to Atlanta for a job opportunity. Although we are excited for this growing family's new adventure, we are selfishly wishing they could stay here with us forever. To send them off with lots of love, our small group threw them a surprise baby shower this past Tuesday and it was a big hit!

Ashley and Oliver were not expecting the shower by any means, (especially since they are only 20 weeks along and we planned in only a few days before our group meeting) but we knew it would be the perfect going away party. Here are some pictures of the gathering. 

These are happy tears...we didn't do anything mean, I promise.

You can get to know this adorable couple and their baby to be on their blog "The Joneses...Trying to Keep Up".  We love you, Ashley and Oliver!

Until next time...

Green With Envy

This bathroom makes me green with envy. 

This bathroom is from Sarah's House on HGTV

This is just my green bathroom.

We've added the grey and chocolate tones which have really helped us to tone down the green tile. Although we haven't finished adding all of the decorative accents, it has come leaps and bounds from where we started. 

Yes, I would like to ultimately rip it to the ground and start with a fresh white bathroom like Sarah's up there, but for now it will due.

Do you have a dream bathroom you'd like to recreate someday in your home? (No need to be realistic here.)

Until next time...
