This week flew by for me, that happens when friends and family come to stay for a few days and you are out and about with them. I didn’t get much work done, but did manage to buy wood for a headboard I am making for my bedroom.
I hope to get that done next week. I am also still working on choosing exterior paint colors and had a big dose of inspiration yesterday when we headed to Hilton Head for a concert.
Inspiring Dream Drive:
We got there a little early and drove around the island. If you have ever been to the area, Hilton Head is one very smartly developed area. Everything has to look a certain way and zoning laws are strict. There are bike paths everywhere and ever store and restaurant imaginable, but you would never know as they are hidden behind lines of trees to keep the natural vibe of the land. This is especially true when you drive though Sea Pines Plantation where all the homes have to be natural neutral colors that blend in with the natural habitat. Nothing reflective on properties and no black allowed.
All of the homes – including million dollar homes to condos are all painted in neutral colors….
Seeing this was great inspiration since I am trying to figure out what color to paint the exterior of my house. My neighbors all have neutral homes, some have stones, others all siding, but all neutral shades. Now, I just have to find the right neutral and looking at every brand of paint.
The Prettiest DIYed Easter Eggs
I will be making these for Easter…
One of Those… “Now Why Didn’t I Think of That” – Genius DIY ideas. This one is a truly clever way to repurpose cable clips.
Resource Finally Found!
At my previous house I had two plastic Chippendale style plastic planters by my front door that many readers asked me where they could buy them. I bought them way before I started my blog at a local drug store that only carried them for one season, so I didn’t have a resource to share. I do now. I stumbled upon them last week.
Chippendale Plastic White Planters. They come in black, too.
A very pretty blue and white planter.
I tried this…. it really works!
I want to do this somewhere, but don’t have a wall to do it on. :-(
That’s it for this week. Next week I will show you what I am working on inside my house.
