The Weekend Warriors of Charlestown



Over the weekend, Mr. Huz and I decided to get our hands dirty with a few projects. Actually, lets rephrase, I decided that some projects needed to be did and forced my husband into participation. 
First up? Floating shelves. These little ditties look easy enough but let me tell you, we almost got a divorce over their installation. Worth it though, right? We eat up every single inch of space we can around here.
Anndd so deserving of a few gratuitous close up shots. Even Ikea Shelves are worthy of their 15 minutes. Plus the Trojan Horsey shakers are all sorts of cute.

next up was a little game I like to play called what in my apartment can I paint gold? Nothing is safe when I am wielding a paint brush and endless amounts of Liquid Leaf. Picture frames, candlesticks, MY BED...you name it, I'll gild it.

And last, the dilemma of the bulbous basket. Oh this cute little chubby basket. I've been eying it up for weeks and finally decided to pull the trigger as the perfect laundry basket for our bedroom. We aren't blessed with a big closet so the laundry has to be out and about and thus needs something pretty to house it. 
This is where things get a bit hairy. I hit the wrong button! The wrong freaking button and received a blue basket instead of the au natural that I was expecting which of course doesn't match the love cave in any way shape or form. And on top of that, it costs almost as much money in shipping to return so that basket is ours FOREVER. Which brings me to this weekend. 
I was on the hunt for jussstt the right spot. Lo and behold I found it but it happens to be in our kitchen. Weird that we now keep dirty laundry in the kitchen? Totally but my plan is tell people that cute little Senegalese basket is the holder of potatoes. yep lots and lots of potatoes up in there. nothing wrong with that.

Fade into Ombre

Sorry for the lack of posts dear ones. Sometimes life gets in the way of blogging and while I love you all to bits and pieces and thank my lucky stars that I have a little corner of the world to spout my randomness, once in awhile family, work, etc calls. But I am home from a whirlwind trip to San Diego and ready to dig in. 
Now lets throw a welcome back party of the ombre kind, shall we? Boy do I love me some ombre...
