What's been going on

Hello my love muffins! How art thou? As you know, I purchased a house and it has been non-stop ever since. The to-do list is painfully extensive and my patience is quickly being worn down. You all know me. I want it done and I want it done now. Call me Veruca Salt. Let me show you some of the progress that has happened thus far. 

Remember how I told you I was certifiably nuts and decided to refinish the floors on my own? Biggest bitch of a DIY but it was so worth it. Look at them now. Clark, she's a beaut. 
I know you all were wildly concerned about the baby poop brown walls that were originally in the master bedroom. Have no fear, Palladian Blue saved the day. Don't worry, light fixtures/ceiling fans are coming down as we speak. Thank the lord for handymen. 
Guest bedroom in Solitude.
 The office in BM's Spring Mint. Remember my plan for a mint and yellow office? Well, it is happening. 
So enough with the floor and wall shots. Amirite? My new couch made it and I am quite obsessed, I must say. I was originally worried about the color of the piping and now I cannot imagine it any other way. It is perfect. Just a little styling update of the living room. Much more to come. 

One of the most important ladies of the house, Billie, trying out her new couch. She gives it two paws up. 

Another living room update. Credenza is here and styled. Would I have it any other way? 

You know how it goes. A move means many trips to Homegoods. Many, many, many. So while I cannot find a space for these pieces, I hope you go to your own Homegoods have such good fortune as I. Just look at this chartreuse console table! Is it not the most? Tell me it isn't. Just try. 
Another lovely console. The picture is not doing it justice, just like it adds 10 lbs to the normal adult, it is stealing the pizzazz and color that this console actually has. It is a mustardy yellow with a high lacquer sheen. Done and done. Why do I not have a place for this?!?!
Ok. The find of the century. Yes, I swear this is from Homegoods. I did a double take and then was in a dead sprint to touch this baby. I am going to take a day to cool off on it, as I really do not have a place for it, but I am willing to throw everything away and possibly fashion a wall to give this lovely a home. Can you believe it? 
So that is what is up lately. Totally mental and physical exhaustion. Have you all done any fun DIY project or found any goods at the HG lately? Share it all. Loves! xoxo

  7. I can't do Homegoods anymore. Know why? Those freaking sticker price tags they put on everything that are impossible to remove. Do they use NASA glue or what??? Love the Griswold reference btw.

  20. Girl, I know your head and body just aches from all this work. But it's already starting to feel worth it, am I right? I'm two years in with un-papered walls and art sitting on the floor because the to-do list has been so long. But I imagine you wake up everyday just like I do, walk around and stare at all that is unfolding because you are making it happen. Love the colors on the wall and those beautiful wood floors!

  27. Holy moly that Homegoods art!!!! My last two pieces are embarrassingly from Homegoods as well -- although not so embarrassing because I get compliments every time people come over! They are such a hit or miss with art sooo you better go buy that!

  28. The floors look great! Can't wait to see everything evolve. Totally in love with your idea of a mint and yellow office!

    In love with that artwork from HG. It would fit in perfectly in my bedroom. Heading over tomorrow to check my local store and see if they have it!

  29. YOU DID THE FLOORS YOURSELF!?? Amazing!!! Gosh I should take notes from you! I'm awful about doing anything on my own. The paint looks so fresh and pretty. I'm dying over Billie. That is exactly how Pickles, our dog sleeps on our couches. He has ruined the pillows. haha! Great job!! xoxo

  32. Wow Lindsay, you have been soooo busy and it is so worth it from our end, too! Your wall colors are amazing, and I love the floors and all you've done. I love that last art piece as well. It looks like a framed scarf or textile.
    Take a breather, you look way ahead of schedule for a new home!
