My Patio Style Challenge Post is Live!

Yaaaaay! The day has come when I can finally pull back the curtain and show you what I’ve been working on the past couple months. Welcome to my new and improved screened porch!

It includes super comfy seating, a dining area, a DIY curtain rod and outdoor curtains, a Jonathan Adler-inspired painted pillow, new rug, new pillows, and the crowning glory – an electric fireplace I trimmed out to make look like a built-in feature of the room.

I’ll have a full room source list on the blog on Monday and lots of tutorials coming. The tutorial for the fireplace will actually be published on Home Depot’s blog and I’ll be sure to link you there once it goes live.

But for now, click HERE to see the whole space. I hope you love it as much as I do. Which is a LOT!

New Kitchen Pendants

If it feels like my kitchen makeover progress has been spread out over about a year, well, that’s because it kind of has. Large-scale projects like this, that I’m doing mostly myself, always take me some time to pull together. I still have the island to paint but the things I had hoped to update in the kitchen when we bought this house have almost all been done now. I still want to make some tweaks to the stove and oven areas but those will come later.

Today I’m showing off the new black and gold kitchen pendants I installed over the island, which I totally love.

Burrata, Prosciutto, and Cantaloupe Crostini

Oh my yum. This burrata, prosciutto, and cantaloupe crostini is my new favorite, well, anything. Appetizer, snack, breakfast, lunch, I even ate it for dinner recently with a big side salad.

It’s everything I love most about food – sweet and salty, creamy, fresh, just a little decadent. Pencil this one in for your next dinner party appetizer or your next afternoon lunch at home by yourself! I highly recommend for absolutely any occasion….

The Inspiration Gallery – A Weekly Link Party

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by to check out this week’s Inspiration Gallery. I’ve embarked on a little impromptu makeover of my daughter’s room this week which has had me covered in paint and spackle dust most of the week. Funny how one little project can snowball into a whole new room. At least that’s how it often seems to go for me!
