Now, as far as my kitchen cabinets go, I don’t feel I am nearly experienced enough to give you a tutorial on that…

    Hello sweet friends.  I keep thinking things will calm down over here, but alas, we seem to always be go-go-going.  Luckily, our backyard oasis is complete (except one small project – more on that later), so we have the perfect place to unwind after a busy day!

THE list (aka, everything we did to change the space): Disassemble and discard (aka…

We knew heading into Summer this year that we wanted to make the most of our outdoor space, and that all started with a hot tub.  Then of course, me being me, I had to DECORATE the hot tub area. 😛 (I mean, duh.
