Friday Favorites: Beach Must-Haves

Happy Friday!! It’s been a very long time since I’ve done a Friday Favorite’s, in fact I can’t even remember the last time I’ve done one, but I've been to the beach the last couple of weekends and am heading to a pool party this weekend so I thought I'd round up my favorite beach favorites that I currently use and currently love. Check them out!

Kitchen Update and How to Create Visuals

It's been a loong time since I've blogged about my kitchen, so I thought it was about time that I give you an update. 

If you remember, originally my plan was to keep the existing cabinets the same mainly because my husband was completely against me painting them white. Slowly but surely, however, I was able to convince him. 

At first, I wanted to get them done in June, but my husband was NOT happy about tackling a huge project in the middle of the summer, so that's why our kitchen projects have come to a complete halt these last couple of months. We both decided we would rather enjoy the summer than spend it working on our house. So instead of painting our cabinets, we have been thoroughly enjoying going to his parent's cottage, the beach, hanging out with friends, and in a couple of weeks we head to the Pacific Northwest for a 13 day vacation, woot woot! Once we get back from our vacation in Mid-August we are planning to finally start our project so we are in the process of finalizing details!! 

Now if we rewind a little bit, some of you maybe asking, how did you convince your husband to do this project? I can't say that there was just one thing that convinced him, but one thing he struggled with is envisioning how it would look.  So, that said today I'm going to show you my favorite way to create visuals when it comes to painting a space!

Deck Makeover and Sources

Long time no see! I can't believe that it's already July! It's been awhile since I've blogged, but lately I've just been trying to enjoy the summer and this beautiful weather that is so limited here in Michigan, and in the last couple of weeks I've just been very un-inspired when it comes to design so I took a little blogging break. 

BUT.. I'm back and feeling more inspired so today I'm giving you the full details on our deck makeover. I've also included all the sources to the deck at the bottom of the post.

Last month I shared how I stained our deck and also shared a post of some Lowe's products I used to turn our deck into an oasis, but in case you saw neither here is a before and after picture.
