Pallet Bar

Derek got creative on our day off together. Say hello to the newest addition to our outdoor space. A pallet bar! Made with two pallets, a few spare boards we had around the house and 3 paver stones. I think we can consider this one a success!

Heres a few fun photos from the process!

Paint & Curtains

We had a fantastic weekend filled with a few small home projects. We re-painted a wall and gave our entry way a little makeover, and changed out our dining room blinds for some curtains. Though these two things seem small, they made a huge difference to our home!

Check out our new entry way! I’m really loving the blue!

Check out this before and after! I did like the red but this new blue sure fits the home.
