Hello everyone ~ my, my my I have been SUCH a bad blogger. This is my first summer trying to “really” blog with three kids at home, and let me tell ya…….well, I don’t have to. You can clearly SEE by my absence that it’s been tough! Some exciting news is that we just got our market analysis in yesterday from our real estate agent for our home and it looks good! So, August will be spent full speed ahead getting the house ready to put on the market by the end of the month. “YAY!!!!”, said NO one ever who’s gotten a house ready to sell. Lol! ;-P
I won’t be refinishing much furniture because of this, but I will be selling a ton of furniture and home decor. If you are local, be on the lookout on Instagram or Facebook for some of those items to go up for sale. To be honest, I’m already pretty sad about selling our farmhouse table…..it’s a true gem and one of the only pieces I’m really sad to see go. As for refinishing more furniture, I have some exciting news to share soon about this coming year! Oh the suspense…..hahaha!
In light of all these other personal BIG “time-sucker” happenings in August, I thought this upcoming month would be the perfect opportunity to take on some design challenges from you guys. I asked my facebook peeps here what kind of challenges they wanted me to take on, and I’d love to know from you too. I may have some other posts in there along the way, but it’s officially Design Month in August around here! Need some ideas for a small dining space? Looking for ideas for shared bedrooms? How about a particular style such as a Modern Chic living room or bedroom. On the other hand….you can bet as I’m working on designs, that I’ll be saving some “pieces” away that I find to DIY in the near future.
What challenges do you want me to take on??? Let me know in the comments below!
For the rest of this week as I wait to see what you are interested in seeing, I’ll be sharing some Entryway Designs with you as well as introducing you to a very special guest. But ALSO, I will be heading out bright and early Thursday morning for the Haven Conference in Atlanta! YAY!!!!!!!
This is a conference put on by leaders within diy and home blogging to teach others and help individuals be a better blogger. It’s hard to believe it’s already here, but I’m super excited for the entire opportunity and to meet some of my blog friends “in real life”. If you love behind the scenes kind of stuff, Instagram and Twitter will be full of pictures of the conference August 1st-3rd. But pretty please don’t unfollow me for all my photos…..I promise I usually don’t post THAT often! Just warning you in advance, because I am just super excited! ;-D
Ok, enough talk. I hope you enjoy Entryway Design #1…….a.k.a. “Simple Chic Entryway”
Thanks for stopping by today!
