PINS of the Week1

Dude.  Check out all the beds tucked away here!!!  I almost feel like this is one of those “count how many triangles are in the picture” things!  Wouldn’t this be so stinkin’ fun for a kids room if you had oodles of children?!? And the ladders… Check out all the ladders!

Pins of the Week…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well…  It’s that time again!  I love how as summer winds down again and it gets closer and closer to fall that blogland ups their game and there’s so much more to see on Pinterest!  I’ve noticed it’s getting harder to pick just 10 top favorites again!  There for a while this summer I’d look at my pins for the last week and think, “Hmmmm….  I pinned about 10 things this week!  This will be easy!” 🙂

Not so much the case lately!  That’s okay though!  Quality not quantity, people!!!

 

So without further ado… Enjoy my picks!

PINS of the Week6

Picklee shared about how you can fill a quart-sized container half full of vinegar, and 1 tsp salt. Then dunk any metal you want to age.

PINS of the Week7

{Pinterest}

Diiiiiiiiigging this desk/shelf unit that A Beautiful Mess highlighted from House of Habit!

PINS of the Week8

This basket from Four Corners Design is an awesome idea especially if you’re too cheap to buy wire baskets or if your husband is to cheap for you to buy wire baskets… *cough-handsome man-cough*

PINS of the Week9

{Pinterest}

I love the concept of a dry river bed to get rid of excess water drainage.  It combines beauty yet is super functional!  Fabulous Home Ideas

 

 

PINS of the Week1

 

{Pinterest}

I would LOVE a concrete countertop on my island in our next house.   Some of the stain they have now for concrete is stunning!!!

PINS of the Week2

{Pinterest}

Speaking of… If I were building a house, I would have heated concrete floors in the kitchen, stain them and seal them with a high-gloss sealer.  I’m seeing some now that are amazing!!!

PINS of the Week3

{Pinterest}

It’s amazing what a well styled & accessorized table behind sofa vs. sofa being pushed up against wall will do!  I love this room feature of My Sweet Savannah by Sadie + Stella!

PINS of the Week4

{Pinterest}

I made this recipe from Pinch of Yum this week and it was super easy and very tasty! I have so much basil right now, it was a GREAT way to use some of it! And you know how I feel about anything basil-esque!  Purrrrrrrr!

PINS of the Week10

{Pinterest}

I love this inspiration photo by Style Me Pretty!  Totally digging how they finished off the table runners!  Pretty!!!

Favorite Pins of the Week…

So… I never knew having a baby around would result in so many quotables from Handsome Man.  I guess I should have assumed that since pregnancy resulted in a fair number of them.  My favorite being,

“Me: It’s kinda nice… I don’t really feel like I have body image issues yet… I mean, I don’t really feel super fat, just pregnant.

Handsome Man: Really? ‘Cause if I looked like that, I’d feel fat.”

The odd thing? He was actually trying to compliment me!  Haha!!  Almost as good as several years ago when my cousin told me his sisters were built like sports cars and I was built more like a tank.  He was totally complimenting me too! And I’ve neeeever let him forget that comment!!! 😉  Poor guy!

 

But my favorite baby quotables from Handsome Man are:

“This is AWESOME!  Now I get to kiss TWO girls every morning!!!”  

Wait!  Whaaaaat?

 

“You know, she looks so much like you when she’s mad!”

Thanks Hon.  You’re sweet.

 

 

 

Anyway… How about a few awesome inspirations for the weekend??  Get ready for my Favorite Pins of the Week!!!

There’s just so much I love about this room!  First of all, the rug?!?!?  DROOL!

Then there’s the happy turquoise wall, which is an awesome color color as it’s happy, yet muted enough to be sophisticated!

And the choice of pattern mixes are awesome!

Pinterest07-27-2

Love this idea for a pantry…  You know how I feel about doors like that… and it would be awesome to build something like that if you had the space on an otherwise blank wall.  You’d only loose 12 inches of depth or so and gain a whole lot of storage!

Pinterest07-27-3

{Pinterest}

How’s this for an easy non-wreathy wreath?  Fun for a summertime door, no?  This is the source, but I can’t tell you anything about it ’cause it’s in Turkish!  Whaaaat?  I’m gonna guess pool noodle wrapped in burlap wrapped in rope wrapped with strips of white cloth and words stenciled on the top! 😉

Pinterest07-27-4

This just seems like such a pretty and elegant way to do “place cards!”  And inexpensive too!! Oh So Beautiful Paper showcased these!

This is for my next house… Where we’ll have a garage!  A garage is definitely a nonnegotiable next time!  Gotta have one!!!  Loving this organizational idea from Shanty 2 Chic!

Pinterest07-27-7{Pinterest}

We’re getting closer to Fall so I’m starting to see more along those lines popping up on Pinterest!  This is kind of an adorable idea from Fun Home Things!

Pinterest07-27-8

Girl in Air did a tutorial on how to make those glass insulator pendant lights! I think 3 of these would be way cool hanging above an island or bar!

Pinterest07-27-9

{Pinterest}

Well, this is kinda C-R-A-Z-Y cool!!!  Want to do this now!  DebbieDoo did a really great tutorial!

Favorite Pins of the Week…

Little Miss Emma has been sleeping better lately, which means less Pinterest browsing while up with her in the wee hours of the night!  Yay for sleep!!!

Nevertheless…. There are plenty of good Pinterest finds this week!

 

Speaking of Emma, we’ll kick it off with a picture of her and an inspiration idea for her as well!

Is this not awesome??!   Someday I want an attic/loft that has lots of guest beds… And to look as cozy as this?  Yum.

 
 

2

{Pinterest}

Loving this simple DIY tutorial on how to age shiny wire baskets to look like old locker baskets by It All Started With Paint!  Like seriously LOVE!

 
 

3

{Pinterest}

Brilliant, no??  Loving this and thinking it would be an awesome way to jazz up my curtains without a whole lot of work! 🙂  And they’re just kinda awesome!

{Pinterest}

Totally digging this super cheap option to a projector!  So until I find a cheap one on a garage sale… Hmmmm!

 
 

5

{Pinterest}

Turquoise? Polka Dots?   Ummm yes.

Check this out in it’s entirety at Chrissie’s Collections…

 
 

6

{Pinterest}

Get the same effect as painting the entire wall without being fully committed to the pattern. Although who couldn’t be fully committed to chevron? Seriously.

 
 

7

{Pinterest}

Great way to cutesify 5-gallon buckets for growing tomatoes.  Yes… SPRING is calling me! 😉

 
 

8

{Pinterest}

Cool closet idea. Attach rods to side of a bookshelf!  Brilliant.

{Pinterest}

Just love the wainscoting and everything above! Mwah!

5 Second Rule.

This makes me laugh.  Like a lot. 😉

This gets top-billing for 2 reasons…

Because I am soooooooooo ready for Spring.

And because it’s cute.

But mostly because I’m sooooooooooo  ready for Spring!!! 😉

Anyone else literally drooling over this piece?

Well…. Not literally. Not that I’ll admit anyway.

But….   *drool.*   The slight industrial edge… The old wood… The castor wheels…  The metal corner-pieces-that-I-don’t-know-exactly-what-to-call-other-than-this-really-long-and-awkward-sentence-that-I-have-going-on…

Love.

4

{Pinterest}

Is it just me or is this crazy cozy?

I might go with a different chandelier hanging from above, but other than that, it’s perfect. 🙂

5

{Pinterest}

This would be a cute way to display pictures!   Especially when paired with my next pin… (Pardon the pun.)

6

{Pinterest}

Chevron clothes pins?  Whaaaa?

In other news….   Is anyone else slightly obsessed with the whole chevron craze but too lazy to try to actually figure out how to paint a good chevron pattern???

Ummmm yeah.  That’s me.

7

{Pinterest}

Speaking of which…. I might actually try it if I can do it like THIS!   It doesn’t look TOO difficult?  Maybe??

8

{Pinterest}

Love this fireplace! You could do this to cover up an outdated fireplace, etc….

9

{Pinterest}

I want to do this on our front porch floor when we paint!!

And to leave you with a laugh….

Favorite Pins of the Week…

Okay…. At the end of the week, I’d like to start posting my favorite pins of the week.

Because I love Pinterest… (I’m not addicted!)

and because I get the BEST inspirations (And laughs) from it and I’d like to share those with YOU!

 

Listed in no particular order:

I’ve been mulling the idea of indoor shutters around in my brain for a while…  Then when I saw this Tutorial by Remodelaholic, it suddenly hit me!

Why not do shutters in the breakfast nook area?!?!?   

Still need to measure and continue mulling it in my brain, but right now… It looks AWESOME in my head!!!! 🙂

pinterest2

{Pinterest}

Mkay.   Maybe I’m the only one here, but…  I totally had a, *smack-head* “Well DUH!  Of COURSE!  That’s brilliant!” moment!  Why didn’t I ever think of this?  Talk about an easy way to spray paint drawers and avoid overspray.

pinterest3

{Pinterest}

Kinda loving this paint job.  A lot.  Just another reason why I think I might need to start checking out this Anne Sloan Chalk Paint craze that everyone is talking about. 🙂

pinterest4

{Pinterest}

Stairs up to the attic AND storage shelving?  Does is get any smarter than that?

pinterest6

{Pinterest}

Totally digging so much about this office.

The T shaped layout is so crazy-functional…

The built-in-ness of it I LOVE…

It’s so stinkin’ efficient…

And of course the styling gets me too.  Open shelving, baskets, yet plenty of closed cabinets.  Be still my heart!

pinterest7

{Pinterest}

Love. This. Kitchen.

Need I say more???

pinterest8

{Pinterest}

Yuuuuuuuummy color combination!  Like it!  A lot!

pinterest9

{Pinterest}

Yup. I like this a lot!

Totally unique and slightly industrial?

*Love*

And……

pinterest5

{Pinterest}

What a way to finish this off!

Why, oh WHY, does this grumpy cat make me giggle so much?

Depressing.  Yet funny! 😉

Of Little Lady Munchkin Nurseries….

GirlNursery2

Ahhhhhh yes…..   Pinterest is filled with nursery ideas for a little lady!

While neither Sam or I would be huge fans of our possible daughter being overly “pink-inized” I’m not opposed to moderate amounts of pink in a little lady’s nursery.  😉

 

Here are some A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E rooms that make me happy!

GirlNursery1

 

{Pinterest}

My FAVORITE nursery!  Is this not totally drool-worthy?  I love the chandelier… I love the color combination… That bed ruffle…  The pom-pom trim on the curtains… And I love the chevron rug.  Again… Let me take a few minutes to drool.  😉

GirlNursery2

{Pinterest}

Again with that color combo!   LOVE!!!!

And the little-noticed rug??  THE POLKA DOTS!  Mmmmmm!

Love the pink and white accent wall… the happy colors that are girly but not “pink-inized”… Even the simple and happy wall art.    *love*

GirlNursery3

{Pinterest}

Are you kidding me????   A GLITTER WALL?!?!?!?!

Ummmm yeah?  If it’s a girl, she’s TOTALLY getting a wall of glitter!!! (Apparently it’s a gallon of glue mixed with glitter and when you paint it, the glue dries clear leaving SPARKLE!)

GirlNursery4

{Pinterest}

Totally LURVE the thought of paper pom-poms… chinese lanterns… etc… above the crib. It just kinda makes me happy!  🙂

GirlNursery5

{Pinterest}

Kinda like the curtains around the ceiling… Still trying to decide about the colors.  I don’t immediately LOVE it, but I think it could grow on me.  What do you think??

After ogling all these inspiration pictures I am trying very very hard not to hope for a girl! Haha!!!

Of Little Man Munchkin Nurseries….

BoyNursery1

Boy?  Girl?

I am soooooo anxious to find out!!!

 

Wanna know the number 1 reason why?

 

 

I want to mentally start decorating the nursery.  🙂

 

Here are some inspiration pics from my Little Man Munchkin Pinterest Boards!

 

BoyNursery1

 

{Pinterest}

Okay….  Loooove the paint job on the walls and the unexpected pop of color on the ceiling!  And a jungle theme would be awesome for our little “Lyon!”

BoyNursery2

{Pinterest}

In continuing with the whole jungle theme…  I love the giraffe art.  Adorbs!

BoyNursery3

{Pinterest}

Apparently, if it’s a boy… I have a definite inkling towards jungle!  This rug is awesome.

BoyNursery4

{Pinterest}

Is this color combo not awesome??

If I didn’t want to paint animal print in the whole room, (Maybe just an accent wall?)

this color scheme would be pretty awesome!  Especially since the walls are already that blue color.  Maybe blue walls and orange pops of color?  Wheels are turning! 😉

 

 

BoyNursery5

 

{Pinterest}

Love how classy this room is.  And I kinda love the shelving on each side of the crib!  Ummm… Yeah.  Kinda awesome!

BoyNursery6

{Pinterest}

I know, I know…  Enough with the animals already!!! 🙂

I’m just totally digging the bright, happy colors in this color combo! Mmmmm!

Anyhoo….  Just a few of the ideas scurrying through my brain as I try not to fall in love with either the idea of a boy OR a girl! 🙂 Haha!

Girl inspiration post coming soon!
