It has been so long since linking up for a five on Friday, and I decided that there was no better time than now to pick it back up - Linking up with April!
John and I leave this weekend to stay with my parents for the week in Minneapolis; to say that I am excited would be an understatement! I’m looking forward to family time and slightly more holiday weather while celebrating Christmas!
ONE | Cutting Board
You know those awesome state-shaped cutting boards?! Well I am a proud new owner! My sweet friend Elizabeth surprised me with Texas cutting board as a house warming gift… and the best part? It’s from Etsy! I absolutely love it.
Go check out AHeirloom and see their awesome stuff!
TWO | Boot Season
Now that it is officially boot season, I’m doing my best to keep my boots in the best shape possible. I used to keep wine bottles in my boots to help them stay standing and maintain their shape, but they get quite heavy after a while, and I’m always concerned about the bottles breaking.
I saw these make-shift boot trees using pool noodles on Pinteret that I am pretty excited to try it! Hopefully the noodles will be strong enough to hold up the boots, and if they do, I will consider it a total win!
THREE | Mastering the All-White Room
I saw this article via One Kings Lane, and just had to share. I’m loving all things white right now, and this is the perfect guide to pulling it all together and making it work. It's love... Am I right?
FOUR | CHRISTMAS
Okay, okay, okay, I know that it is actually Thanksgiving next week, but I couldn’t help but pull out my Christmas décor just a tad early. Since John and I won’t be home for Thanksgiving, I wanted to make sure that when we arrived home that the house would be perfectly Christmas-ed for our return home. When are you taking out your Christmas décor?!
This is our first year getting a fake tree, and y’all, I kind of love it. It was so easy set up, and I am SO looking forward to not having to climb under the dang thing and water it every day – woof!
FIVE | Cane Chairs
So I love a good deal, and I happened to be on Craig’s List looking for a lawn mower when I stumbled upon the two most amazing cane chairs for only $60! You best believe I snagged those bad boys up. They definitely are in need of a new cushion and upholstery, but they are quite sturdy chairs!
I am thinking I reupholster them into something like the below barrel chairs from One Kings Lane. Any advice from people who have upcycled furniture before?!
