No Rest for the Obsessed


Okay, not going to lie, we may have taken a night off to stare at our new family room rest. It was oddly satisfying seeing a project completed (please note: we did not look towards the dining room as that is still an explosion of crap)

Sadly, no rest for the home obsessed, and I just had to share this awesome find my dearest Brenna picked up for me. She will also be upset if I don't mention that this was supposed to be a 10 minute detour on her way to my house and it ended up being a two hour catastrophe.

To show you how important Brenna is to our family, here is a picture of Seamus sitting on her face.

Do y'all remember the awesome back porch facelift that Brenna and I did?

We had these awesome bamboo/rattan/whatever chairs that we'd gotten for free from my MIL that we gave a little pick me up. It ended up way better than we thought resulting in these:

Look what I found on Craigslist for FREE last weekend during all the family room chaos!

Who is excited? I am excited! It is slightly different but we are so excited to get rid of the rickety rockers I regretted buying the minute I got home for our front porch.

We are planning to put this couch on our front (covered) porch and keep the two chairs out back. I'm hoping I can get matching fabric so if we are having a party or something we can move the couch to the deck. The game plan is fairly simple- spray paint it white (buying the appropriate amount of paint this time) and reupholster the cushions.

I'll be sure to post a picture once I get it finished- I was just too excited to not share! Love me some FREE.
