One Room Challenge {Week 4}

One Room Challenge {Week 4}

This post contains affiliate links for your convenience. Welcome to the longest week of my life.  Stomach bug x 4 plus 2 birthdays = Amanda is struggling.  But since I already missed two weeks worth of One Room Challenge updates I feel like I have to post an update. So I don’t know if this is even Week 3 or 4 or what but here’s an update.  I’ve done very little actual work in the room but have picked out…

Valentine’s Day {Expectations vs Reality}

Valentine’s Day {Expectations vs Reality}

Our Valentine’s Day didn’t go quite like I planned this year.  You see, I have these grand visions of surprising the girls with the table decorated for Valentine’s Day with pancakes and sprinkles and relaxed conversations about the day ahead while the eat their nutritious breakfast. The reality was more like frozen waffles while running out the door to school…and we were still tardy.  I spent too much time working on McKenna’s hair and not enough time looking for Avery’s…

I was so excited when the kind folks at HomeRight reached out to me to ask if I would be interested in trying out their new Steam Mop.  I’d never used or owned a steam mop so I jumped at the opportunity! I thought I would put it to the test…

How To Cover An Ottoman

How To Cover An Ottoman

Mom and I tackled a project at her house a few weeks ago.  The foot stools in her sunroom had seen better days.  Her three smallest grandchildren frequently jump off of them play on them and they were pretty dirty.  The light pink fabric wasn’t helping the situation either. Mom bought 2 yards of a mixed blue fabric to recover them and we got to work.  She probably only needed one yard. To remove the base from the cushion I only…

One Room Challenge {Week 4}

One Room Challenge {Week 4}

You guys. Week 4!?! How did that happen? I hope that I can show you some significant improvement next week! I almost threw in the towel this week. I pulled the bed out to slide the desk behind it to the other side of the room.  I decided I would just slide the desk instead of unloading everything. Then this happened…   The legs buckled and the entire thing collapsed on me.  I have the bruises to prove it! I…

One Room Challenge (Week 3)

One Room Challenge (Week 3)

I’m in the process of making over our guest bedroom and office as part of the One Room Challenge.  It’s a fun little challenge to makeover a room in your home in six weeks! When I signed up I didn’t anticipate Hurricane and being without electric. I have made a little progress on the project though.  Here’s where I started. I’ve managed to clean up that wall under the window. I also found these curtains on sale at Target today!…

Halloween Mantel

Halloween Mantel

Welcome to Spider Week on the Bay Bush!  Okay…that’s not a real thing. But it seems like spiders have taken over around here.  They were the inspiration for the Halloween Tablescape I shared earlier in the week and I decided to incorporate them into my mantle too. I re-used a lot of my old mantle stuff but had to re-arrange a few things after I couldn’t find one of the blocks for the TRICK or TREAT blocks.  One of the…

Halloween Tablescape

Halloween Tablescape

I don’t normally do a lot of decorating for Halloween outside of my normal Fall decor.  It seems like a lot of work for something that is over before you know it. However, I found a six pack of black glitter spiders for 50% off at Michaels and that started it all… Those little spiders set off a chain reaction and I had an entire spider-filled tablescape before I knew it. I used dental floss to hang several of the…

Myrtle Beach {2016}

Myrtle Beach {2016}

I thought I would share snippets from the rest of our trip to Myrtle Beach.  I shared our trip Brookgreen Gardens on Monday. We usually hit up Steak N Shake at least one each trip for all you can pancakes!  The food is good but the service is always terrible. Uncle Rusty took McKenna and Tyler on the beach to hunt for sand crabs one night.  All of the other kids were already sacked out when they went.  Here’s the…
