Random Things Happening Behind the Scenes at Bricks ‘n Blooms
What a week it was!
We got snowed in while staying in Vermont over MLK weekend and got over a foot of snow!
It was so pretty but SO COLD!
The whole weekend was in the negative temps.
My family did a lot of skiing and it was just nice to get away.
This week, we hosted some good friends over for dinner and enjoyed an amazing meal with our new neighbors.
It was so fun to see their beautiful vintage farmhouse.
I love older homes with a lot of character, don’t you?
Yesterday, we finally took down the padded fabric off of the dining room walls.
And let me tell you – it was a chore!
Even Koda thought it was no joke.
It was a lot of work and I’m glad we didn’t try to just do this on the fly because it was a mess.
There were so many staples, lots of piping and some of it was glued down.
There was fresh sheetrock behind most of it.
Some of the portions were not in the greatest shape.
And when we (i.e. Chris) carefully removed the trim used to tack the fabric down, it was glued so some repairwork is definitely needed.
But I have to tell you.
Despite all that it looks so much brighter.
And this room is going to be gorgeous when it’s done.
Even with the walls in the shape they are in, the room looks so good!
Aside from the dining room demo, I ordered MORE SEEDS.
I might have a problem because I already ordered like 20 packs of seeds already and just ordered 10 more!
While I ordered a lot, I’m not going to sow them all and will save them for future use.
I’m really ready to get out there and start planting things.
So starting seeds indoors is happening soon!
We are setting up the shelves in the sunroom today!
After we get all those staples out of the dining room wall first though. LOL!
What’s Happening at Bricks ‘n Blooms
It was a fun week but super busy week on the blog!
There are so many great finds that can be used in the garden, look for these items the next time you go bargain shopping.
In addition to thrifting, I joined up with 9 other home decor bloggers to share some winter DIYs.
For my part, I shared how to arrange a china cabinet and hutch.
Break out your favorite collections and learn how to show them off on some open shelving.
And if you want to following along with how I arranged my china cabinet, you can watch it in the video below.
There’s something oddly satisfying watching it come together in real time.
To keep these cozy, I shared my FAVORITE go-to winter recipe.
Wait until you try this super easy and delicious dinner idea that the whole family will love.
We also toured my new home where I shared the whole main living floor and what we are planning to do with it.
Our 1850 farmhouse has so many great bones with a lot of character.
And there are so many great projects coming up in 2022!
So consider this, the BEFORE home tour.
I can’t even wait to get started!
Well, I guess technically we already did because the dining room makeover has already begun.
