Summer time feels like it’s been a long time coming this year, am I right? It seems like spring crawled by at a snail’s pace, and we’re so ready to get outdoors and air ourselves out after such a long few months.
While spring brought new and unexpected challenges, we made the best of it. I found myself looking around the house and doing little projects that have needed to be done for awhile. One of my favorite updates I made was painting our linoleum floor in the master bathroom.
I also found myself getting out my watercolors and paint brushes that I almost forgot I had! I took every one of Lucy’s watercolor classes, and ended up painting a few pieces that I’m using around the house! My favorite is this landscape that I painted. I’m using it on the mantel in my summer living room. 🙂
Another task that I accomplished was switching around some of our furniture. I had been looking at our open shelves (which were previously in our eating area) and moved them to the living room!
I love styling these shelves, and it was fun to pull off all of the dishes etc., and re-style them for the living room.
While I did end up using some of the same pieces, I also added quite a few new accessories and frames.
I love how versatile these shelves are! They look good wherever I move them! 🙂
I thought I’d also share a peek at our new front door. We replaced it last fall, and I need to feature it properly in it’s own blog post, but here she is!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! Find many of my sources (or as close as I can find) below! xo
