Hutch Makeover

If you follow me on Instagram then you'll know that I started painting the hutch in my kitchen.  The only other time I painted furniture was my bookshelf and I was nervous to tackle an even bigger project.  I didn't plan on distressing the hutch either which was hard because sanding off any mistakes and calling it distressed was SO much easier.  But just because you've never done something doesn't mean you can't, right?  Here's the before picture of my hutch.  I fell in love with her pretty embellished top and her straight lines.  She was a little plain before but now she's a knockout!

Trick or Treat Tags

I love Halloween!  October is one of the best months of the year!!  I'm totally a scary movie watching, pumpkin cookie loving, haunted house fanatic kind of girl! I shared these tags on Ella Claire Inspired last year and I was excited to get them out again!  I love handing out spooky gift bags to my family and friends!

My Patio Dream Moodboard

I love living in our brand new house!  One of the things I was most looking forward to was having a backyard of my very own.  We had grand plans of planting a garden and flowers but the reality was we just had a brand new baby and we didn't have the money or time to jump into it this year.  We did get the sprinklers put in and the grass planted though and I can't wait to work in my yard next spring!  One of the things I daydream about is having a beautiful patio for lounging and barbecues!  I put together this mood board with all my favorite patio things.  I really did try to add some color, but my heart just goes for neutral decor.  Besides, I figure the flowers and plants I plan to have will be plenty of color.
