Scouring the Web

January 17, 2017

ebb + flow :: scouring the web

Among other things, buying a little fixer upper has greatly enhanced my internet scouring skills. Exhibit A above. I had my eye on these tables for our master bedroom, waited too long for them to go on sale and then they sold out across the country. Blargh. So the internet hunt began for a similar and cost-effective replacement and then the Google gods led me here in the middle of a holiday sale and, presto, our bedroom was feeling much for finished and my books had a place to rest at night. And they were, at the time, $20 cheaper than the Target model. Woop woop!

This week I’m putting my internet skills to work on some rug sourcing. Keep you posted on that one!

Weekend Wrap Up 1/15

January 15, 2017

ebb + flow :: weekend wrap up

Oh man, this weekend was over in the blink of an eye and has left me with a case of the Sunday blues. It’s a little after 8 p.m. and I’m thinking a small fire and a good read are calling my name. While I get cozy, enjoy these links from around the web this week!

The OA

ebb + flow :: The OA

Aside from the organizing and demo-ing this weekend, the Red Head and I went on a serious binge of the Netflix show The OA. We have on episode left and I can’t stop thinking about it and having crazy dreams! I’m hoping tonight’s episode viewing brings some closure because this lady needs some shut eye that’s not filled with stressful parallel universe thoughts!

Weekend Wrap Up 1.8

January 8, 2017

ebb + flow :: weekend wrap up

The first full weekend of 2017 has been a success around here. Every nook, cranny, closet, shelf, cabinet and room has been organized, sorted and I feel like we finally know where everything is! After living here for over four months it’s a really good feeling. Almost as good as dropping off seven boxes and two bags of stuff off at Goodwill this morning! Now we have room for the biggest re-model project we’ve ever tackled – the basement! It’s going to be a busy few months getting that space up to speed but I can’t wait. Enjoy these links from around the web while I go knock down a wall!

White + Bright

ebb + flow :: painting

Tonight’s agenda consists of a trip to Ace Hardware to get some more paint and painter’s tape and then an evening with podcasts and what I’m hoping is the final coat of the white paint on our dining room trim! Getting that stuff out of 1970 was a lot of work but it made the space so much brighter and current! Once the trim is done I’m going to add bead board below the chair rail (goodbye green!), install some art and call it good until we remodel our kitchen. Trying not to get too far ahead of ourselves with projects! Wish me luck and let me know if I have paint in my hair tomorrow, OK?
