Wow, I thought this day would never come.  We’ve been working like dogs next door in the rental to get it ready for the renters who move in tomorrow.  It’s been scraping wallpaper, painting, sanding, staining, replacing electrical & you name it every night for the last several weeks. Matt and I are exhausted!  Today is the final push and all I have on my agenda is to put in new shower heads and clean the porch. I can see an end in sight.

We’re celebrating the completion of a monster project by doing a beer tasting tomorrow and getting massages on Sunday.  I can’t wait to finally have a weekend that doesn’t involve heavy labor.

This week, I’m inspired by the clean palette we’ve been creating next door and I’ve fallen in love with a handful of inspiring little bits from the web.

The List Week 31

No. 1 GETTING ARTSY – I realized this week, after buying art for a design client, that I need some art in my home.  I have mirrors and small photos, but I don’t really have any compelling art.  Let me ask you – do you have art in your home?  How did you choose it? Where did you buy it? I love the natural looking ‘Rinse and Repeat” by Susie Allen.

No. 2 H2O ON THE GO – I am trying really hard to drink more water, but I’m so bad at it!  I think maybe this beautiful water jug would really help. I always find myself inspired to do things I’m slacking on when the accessories are prettier (we’re looking at you work-out wear!).

No. 3 IDEAL GETAWAY – After this renovation, Matt and I are ready for a relaxing vacation.  We are scheduled to hit the Caribbean in December, but I feel like everyone is taunting me online with beautiful pictures from Tulum.  We love Mexico, so I’m going to put it on the short list for next year.

No. 4 B&W BEAUTIES – I need another set of mini bowls like I need a hole in the head, but aren’t these hand painted Moroccan bowls from West Elm just perfect?

No. 5 CONCRETE MATTERS – I am not a huge fan of concrete home accessories, but this pendant light struck a chord with me.  It’s minimal, but still has a bit of flair and glamour.

 

I hope you have something fun or relaxing planned for this weekend! Just like every Friday this summer, I’m taking over the Cambria Wines Insta account to share my happy hour sips and snacks! Come over to @EarnestHomeco_ on Insta to link up & check it out!

p.s.  I’m starting a Q&A Monday over on ErinSouder.com, so if you’ve EVER had any questions about creating a product line like I did with Earnest Home co, pop it in the comments below and maybe I’ll choose it on Monday to answer!
