At Home: In Just Ten Days

Two more weeks of school and then summer is here.  I long for it.  Cannot wait for it.  I have a list of things I want to do around the house.  Here is some thoughts for upcoming projects.  All of these are from my Pinterest boards.

Which color?  My house is gray with black shutters and a red brick porch.

I have been busy planting my beds, trying to create that cottage feel.  I would love to someday have this:

Of course, after you walk by that garden bed and through the fabulous painted door, I want to see an updated stairway.  Black accents maybe.

When I think of the inside, I am really interested in painting the stools at my breakfast bar.  My kitchen has white cabinets with dark gray counters and blue/gray walls.  I have lots of red pops, but I am really wanting a splash of color.  Thinking of going with yellow on those stools.

I am also realizing that it is time to update Nathan's room.  He has asked that we take out some of the "younger" items.  It is time to bring it up a notch.  I want to add some stripes and painted a bookshelf.  Maybe something like this:

Sure, I can't wait to relax and have a slower pace in just ten days.  But I also can't wait for some DIY time!  Soon, so soon...
