Destinations & Directions Sign

Hi all.  Long time, no post.  I know.  Annoying.  I have consistently been waking up an 1 1/2 later than I usual.  This is not a bad thing because I do need the sleep and I am now waking up at an acceptable time.  Having said that, the 1 1/2 hours I am sleeping through used to be when I would blog and edit photos.  Normally, I wake up between 5 & 5:30, make my coffee, then sit on the couch with the dogs and edit photos and type blog posts.  Now, I don't have that much time in the morning so blogging, once again, has been neglected and put on the back burner.  One day I will figure out how to do it all...or at least that's what I tell myself to stay hopeful.  :)

We have had several home projects going on the past few weeks plus tons of furniture I haven't shared.  Today, I want to show you the destinations and directions signs we made for our yard.

The Coastal Kitchen Makeover - One Year Later

One year ago today, I revealed the first DIY kitchen update.  One year.  Where did it go?!  There have been many exciting things happen over the past year because of the kitchen.  Things that I never thought would happen to me.  Things that I didn't even think to think of.  Sometimes life is weird and crazy.

In late May, right before the magazine feature was out, I posted new pictures of the kitchen.  That post was to show the small details and decor I was added to give the space a little more character and the polished, finished look.

A Dock Update and a Look Back

Hi all!  I hope everyone is having a great week so far.  The paint booth is full and my schedule is packed.  It is a great feeling to be busy.  So busy, that I haven't really worried with before and after posts.  I just don't have the energy right now.  Sorry.  This month I have suffered from severe adult ADD and have had a hard time staying focused and getting my to do lists done.  It happens.  I am hoping its only a phase and will go away soon.

Anyway, this weekend Blittle worked on his fish cleaning station for the dock.  It is looking great.  We need to finish the plumbing, stain the wood to match the deck and a finish a few other small details but the bulk of the work is done.
