vintage batik fabric

Happy Saturday! We’re busy sanding, staining, priming and painting today. The (declawed) clawfoot tub and accompanying DIY cradle base are coming along. Can’t wait to share our progress! This project has been so much fun mostly because we feel like we’re sailing uncharted waters. I’m not sure if the final result will resemble anything close to our vision but we’ve enjoyed the challenge.

More things I enjoyed this week…

*Vintage batik fabric for a special project.


*DIY wabi-sabi wood tiles.

*Bekah’s airstream redo.

*Danielle and Austin’s big reveal.

*There’s an Australian version of Houzz now?! Whoa. Where have I been?

*Tracy Anderson’s new workout DVD.

*Currently reading and loving: The Big Tiny.

*Trivets anyone?

Have a great rest of the weekend. I’m off to give the tub yet another coat of paint!

Lovely gathering of items. I especially love those wabi-sabi wood tiles, those were so clever


I love that kitchen/bedroom reveal! Is that something you would consider one day – turning your garage into a bedroom with a small ensuite when your boys are bigger and crave their own space?


I love the kitchen redo…so much white with a huge wood table. Love!


I have one more chapter in The Big Tiny! Love it. Want to declutter. Simultaneously:)


Wow, you have expensive taste.


DIY wabi-sabi wood tiles…..Loved the idea!

So much of this made me smile too. Love the wabi sabi tiles and the beautiful textiles.


Just receive the new Tracy Anderson videos. Cannot wait to push all of the furniture out of the living room and give them a try tonight… Or cuddle on the sofa with my Pomapoo, frozen yogurt and watch them first ;)


If anything, we would convert the garage into a flex / rec room. But I’m not sure it would be necessary. We’ll see…


Cannot wait to see the kids’ bathroom. Everytime I click on your website, I’m hoping to see the reveal :)
