Friday Five

Well, we made it guys. Friday is here again. Enter raise the roof emoji here. In case you missed my post from Tuesday, I’ve been under the weather this week so that would explain the lack of posts. I’m feeling much better today, although my sinuses would have to disagree. I sound like a 1940s telephone operator (errr, “operatah”). This weekend will be full of resting, cleaning, organizing, watching football and holiday schedule scheming. On to the five…blue-yellow-pink-christmas-tree-3

1   |   Loving these DIY Christmas ornaments. Don’t even start on the ‘it’s too early’ stuff. I don’t want to hear it. I’m already thinking of ways to convince my husband to set up the Christmas tree before Thanksgiving. Don’t tell 😉

2   |   This nursery is sheer perfection.

3   |   I feel like adding these will soon be a project at our house.

4   |   Jenny always has the best DIYs and this one is getting added to my list.

5   |   A friend of mine was wearing these recently and I fell hard for them. Need.

I hope you each have a wonderful weekend. Unless you’re an LSU fan. Sorry. But you can have a good weekend next weekend. I’ll allow that.

Dine + Dash

Sometimes I feel like decorating our house is a never-ending process (which I kinda like and kinda loathe). Am I the only one? I’m a big believer in decorating rooms over a long period of time to make the space seem more put together, but there are days when I just want it all to come together asap. I’ve started budgeting money each month to put toward home items and force myself to buy those much needed items (and get rid of those items that have just been fillers). So, I’ll definitely be sharing some decor updates around the house in the coming months.

The dining chairs we currently have are mismatched and are just hand-me-downs or ones I picked up along the way that haven’t been anything special. We have a very light gray (Martha Stewart’s Sharkey Gray) dining table I painted a few years ago (see it here on my old blog). I tend to keep items and not buy anything new unless I get rid of said items to make room for new ones. I know. I’m crazy. So, I gathered a few pictures from Pinterest to get an idea of what route I want to take with our dining chairs…

I really love the look of pairing two comfy chairs as the heads of the table. Do you have any tips for picking dining room chairs? What kind of looks do y’all like – more formal or on the casual side?
