DIY - Outdoor Serving Cart

grey and wood tone serving cart with easy to make plans

Hey there,

Today I'm bringing you another project that's going to the patio makeover: A serving cart.

Even though I already have a pair of potting benches that might work for holding food when not in use in the garden, I still find it not too appealing to place food on those surfaces that usually get so dirty.

So, when deciding how to build this cart, I remembered a lovely cart project that

Hi friends,

I'm so glad the weekend is here! What a week, no wait, what a month I had!

I've been a busy bee finishing all the big and little details for my Patio Style Challenge, and let me tell you, it's DONE!  :D
The full reveal is this coming week. I can't wait to share it with all of you. :)

As I said, it was a crazy week and that's why I've been so absent, there was no time to sit down to upload pics or write posts, well, 'til now.

Old Soda Crate Succulent Garden

Whoa, it's April already!

The months are flying by, but this is the only time of the year when I like that happening... The cold weather slipping away to welcome the warm, sunny days.  Ahhh, beautiful!

Yes, we had a beautiful and very busy weekend, and in between all the things I could accomplished was this little project that I'm sharing today, and that says to me: Spring is HERE!

A couple weeks ago I stopped by one of my latest favorite vintage stores in the area and found

Living Room Before and After

Hello there!

Last week during the Spring Home Tour I gave you the final shots to this, the newly renovated living room.

I didn't want to make you wait one more week, it was already a long wait since that day in September, remember?  When I used some of the ugliest graphics to show you my plans for this room! :D 
You can check that post right here.

Gorgeous Blue Spring Home Decor Ideas

Hi Friends,

We had a wonderful week of home tours celebrating the arrival of Spring. Thanks so much for stopping by and for your sweet comments!

I had a blast visiting each and every single home dressed in its best Spring attire,
and while going through, I couldn't ignore the blue trend going on right now. 

Well, I think blue is always in fashion, but lately I've noticed it a teensy-bit more.

Might it be the fact that

Spring Home Tour

It looks like Spring is finally here to stay! Last week we got a bunch of snow and I can't tell you how disappointed I was.  A huge set back for the work I'm doing in my backyard. Yep, you heard it right, I'm already working in my backyard, trying to bring it back in style for none other than the Patio Style Challenge. The reveal is coming soon, I can't wait!  ;)

But hey, today is all about the home's interior, and as usual, I'm over the moon to be a part of this talented group of ladies led by Marty from A Stroll Thru Life.

If you're coming from Doreen at Hymns and Verses or if you're one of my regulars, Welcome! I'm so glad you are here. Make yourself comfortable because this is a load with lots of pictures post.

In my book, Spring decor is all about new beginnings, kind of cleaning our rooms and starting the year with a bright, fresh canvas, I think that's the theme for this home tour, Bright and Fresh.

So, let's start here at the mantel in the family room, the only area in this room that got dressed for Spring. This is the place where the family hang out the most, whatever decor I add to the mantel is always enjoyed it.

The kitchen has stayed the same, I'm still enjoying the bright colored island. So, other than the fresh tulips in the blue mason jars and some drawer organization I did a couple months ago, I've done nothing in here.

Miss. RLC was in charge of juicing those oranges, and she wasn't that happy about the pics. :/

So, we better get out of the kitchen and move into the home office.

The reveal of this room was done last year, during Christmas.

But, after all the Christmas decor was taken down, I've been using this room as my office. I love it! Even though, my supplies, crafts, and papers aren't organized that well yet. I feel like I've been more productive having the majority of my stuff in one space.

I used one of those wide lenses to try to capture the entire room in one shot. And yeah, that's how it looks when you are at the door coming from the kitchen.

Styling the shelves wasn't easy, I changed them like five times. :)

I first tried to bring the Ikea boxes to the top shelves, but nope, too busy. I guess the styling never ends.

I think this is a "new to you" view of my home, from the office all the way to the family room, going thru the kitchen and breakfast area. It's a looong room!

Hydrangeas put a smile on my face while working in here.

And now that I look at this picture, I'm just glad to be able to inject new life to those old pieces... the chair, the table, the chandelier...

And it's right here, while sitting in this chair, that I get to admire all the work I just completed in the adjacent living room.
