Here’s What’s Going Down.

Blogging. What a trend.

 

It is breaking my heart that it is on the downhill. Let’s face it- it’s just. not. popular anymore. I have recently been addicted to Lemon Grove Avenue and I love seeing that it is like Young House Love (you know I had to mention them) in the olden days. Genuine posts, such a cute couple, and a design that is truly them, you know what I mean?

If you can’t figure if I am saying that this is the end of my (tiny, barely updated) blog, or if I want to keep blogging, here’s your answer:

 

I want to keep blogging because I love how it’s like a diary.

 

Obviously I’m not doing it because it’s “cool” or “easy” because really, as much as I love this little online world, it’s neither of those. Not to say that blogging is lame though – I completely disagree with that statement. I would compare it to… well, let’s just say good ol’ PB&Js. Chipotle has obviously taken over the whole lunch arena, but you just can’t shake off a the classic, right? Did that make any sense? I love the idea of blogging, and that’s why I want to continue (and grow)Β it.

So here’s what I’m going to do, because as we can all see my “I’ll blog whenever something interesting happens and when I feel like it” ain’t working:

I might start this week, but maybe the next. I’ll see what I can write this weekend!

 

See ya on the flip side, readers!

Ever since I did the project below, I have been in love:

And you will never guess where it was from.

Ikea. I know!

About 249108421 years ago. It’s so old that it’s even solid wood! I KNOW!

Here’s how it started:

Oof. Messy garage.

It was pine-y. It was wood-y. It was not my kind of wood tone.

So I chose a darker stain (Minwax Dark Walnut, maybe?) and got some leftover ceiling paint and went at it:

Umm… so good.

 

I am I guess “old enough” to get on this bandwagon, and I’m glad I did. Read the book if you haven’t

 

Second: my room!

Here is how it’s coming together:
