Chalkboard Fridge

We've been talking about painting this 1970's golden harvest beauty for awhile now. That's right, I'm talking about the garage fridge!

Hubby already started painting when I was like, "Wait! I didn't get a before picture!!" To which hubby rolled his eyes, told me I was weird and kept painting. :)

We used Rust-Oleum spray paint like this. (not an affiliate link, I get nothing for this.)

It worked out great! I used painters tape over the door seal but other than that sprayed away! Here's the results:

It will be super fun for M to be able to use her sidewalk chalk on this. She has a habit of thinking it's fun to draw on doors anyway. :)

Rustic Bridal Shower

My brother in law is getting married at the end August and we recently had a bridal shower for my fabulous future sister in law at the same place where they are getting married. They are having the wedding at this fabulous farm a few miles from my parents house. Mom and I had a lot of fun decorating the barn.

Here's the entrance:


We used lots of burlap and lace for decorations. The wedding will be using some of the same decorations as well.

We had a sangria bar set up.

I made an easy fun little banner by putting gold stickers on a premade set.

I made some delicious cupcakes from recipes I found here and here. They were super delicious!

Here's some more pictures of the barn and the various decorations:

Barn Wood Accent Wall

Let me just start this post by saying I have the best parents ever. They recently stayed with us so they could go to grandparents’ day at school for Maddy. After they attended that, they put up this barn wood accent wall all while hubby and I were gone. I came home to this:

 They even did this fabulous trim around the doorway to the hall.

The only thing I had to do was put back the furniture and artwork on the wall. I did end up rearranging some of the artwork here and there.

I’m so happy with how well this turned out. I must be the luckiest girl in the world.

Don’t settle for dull, live a refinished life!
