Loves on a Thursday

Happy Thursday, y'all! 

I am so excited for the weekend. My sweet girl and I are going on a road trip to visit lots of friends in the Carolina's. Myrtle Beach. Charlotte. Mount Airy. I heart road trips!

What are your plans for the weekend? Can you believe it is almost August. Eek!

Since we moved in June I am doing some insane shopping to decorate our new home. So I can't wait to show you all my ideas or projects in the work.

Words can NOT express how much I adore this sign made by the lovely Kristi 

It would go PERFECT in our bedroom and match our quilt. Love. Love. Love.

I love Pallets! This patio set looks SUPER easy to make. I'll add this to our list of DIY projects. Check out Larry at Old Bits of Wood on Etsy.

This photo on Mix and Chic inspired our new entry way. Perfect for the kiddos to drop off all their junk at the door. I bought a bench at Target and hooks at Anthropologie so all I need is for the hubs to make my shelf. Want to see the bench and hooks I bought? Click here and here.

Found this great DIY Chalkboard Menu board tutorial on Six Sisters' Stuff. Super easy! I was on a man hunt at Thirft stores or garage sales for a picture frame but couldn't find 'the one'. So I found a frame for dirt cheap at Hobby Lobby (oh how I could LIVE in that store!). Just finished spraying the frame so all I have to do is add my letters and viola'! 

I'll be ordering one of these adorable signs for the kitchen from Breanna 
at Slight Imperfections on Etsy. Thank heavens for coffee! Can I get a good Amen?

Check out this beaut! Over at Shanty 2 Chic they show you how to make this Anthropologie farm table for $ heard me right $65!

They got the idea from my FAVORITE website EVER Ana White. Ever heard of her website?

If not, go visit it now!

We get all our project ideas from her website. 
Thank goodness I was blessed with a handy, carpenter for a husband!

Now that I got my honey-to-list together, I'm off to get the hubs started. 

Have a great weekend!
