Tan Sectional Source

Happy Thursday! One of the most frequently asked questions I get asked on Instagram is, "where is your sectional from?" so I thought today I would share all the details on it as well as at the bottom I've included 14 other tan sectional ideas.

Must-Haves to turn Deck into an Outdoor Oasis

 Spring is here and Summer is nearby so it's time to start working on your decks and patios if you haven't already! Last week I shared how I stained our deck, so once it was done it was time to make it a summer outdoor living space we'd enjoy for the rest of the season. If you have a small deck like me, sometimes it can be hard to create your own outdoor living space oasis but today I'm sharing how I created our own using some products from Lowe's to create a summer under the lights look.

I know, pretty sad but my Mom was never into gardening so I never learned and at the time I was 22 so I had no experience of my own .

How to Stain Deck with Behr Weather Proofing Stain

I hope you all are having a wonderful week! Over the past two weekends we have been really busy getting projects done, and today I’m sharing one of the completed ones: staining our deck. We weren't originally planning on working on our deck this summer, but when I was approached with a fun collaboration opportunity, which I will be sharing next week, we decided to shift some of our projects around and finally stain the deck.  It definitely wasn't one of the more "fun" projects we've done so far, but it definitely has made a difference and was well worth the time, sweat and my farmer's tan. 

Here is what the deck looked like before:
