DIY Project Parade and Grape Arbor Sneak Peek

We’ve had so much rain this month so outdoor projects have been impatiently waiting. However yesterday we had 1 day of sun!  I was able to get started on staining the wood on our grape arbor.

The winner of the DIY Project Helper Giveaway is… Kristin!
1) A casual monogrammed “D” for some blank space on the top of the built-in in our DR.


2) Cool, fun vinyl numbers (1-5) to put on the back stairs leading from the kitchen to the backyard. This area was always an afterthought but I am currently painting (BM’s Saybrook Sage – so pretty!), beadboarding, sanding, staining, plate wall displaying (!) and making this small area part of our home.
