This is reblogged from Lily Button Design. Stay tuned for my own version soon!


As always, I planned a couple of projects for the weekend and I had hoped to finish my gallery wall before my curtains but I ran out of spray paint so the curtains were finished first. Boy oh boy am I happy with that decision. I have never been this happy with a diy project (to date).

It started with pinterest (surprise surprise). I fell in love with the trend of striped curtains. They are modern and cozy and also …..very expensive I knew I wasn’t going to be buying striped curtains anytime soon, so I started researching diy versions.

Why hello there! I know it’s been a while since we last chatted, and I apologize for that.  Things have been busy in my world, but I’m back to show you my completed vanity project!

As you can see, I now have the hardware for the vanity, and I’ve also painted the chair.  I am very happy with how the chair turned out- it’s so cheery!

It’s 60 degrees here today in Michigan… pretty rare for March in our area.  We have the windows open and the birds are chirping.  It’s days like this that I am able to easily reflect on the many blessings in my life.

Praise the Lord! Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever! ~ Psalm 106:1

That my glory may sing your praise and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever! ~ Psalm 30:12
