House Update Summer 2017

House Update Summer 2017
Hey guys,

So far not that much has really changed at the house since my spring update. My mom and sister are currently working on the built-in bookshelves that are going up in the library! So far they are turning out great and I cannot wait for them to be finished.

My mom and I are working on outdoor furniture. Together we built a couch and two chairs. To be honest, they aren't the most comfortable pieces of furniture ever but I am super excited to be able to say that we built furniture. So far they are built and we are in the process of staining them and putting a weather protector on them. We had some major issues with the cushions and we tried out at least 3 if not more different cushions from a few different stores. We ended up settling on some from Target and some from Lowe's. Together are only going to seat 4 people. I had hoped the couch would fit 3 but we shortened the couch so it would fit on a wall in-between two of our sliding glass doors and because of that we lost a seat but then there's still some room left over on the couch. We probably should have made our own cushions but I really didn't want to do that and I also really didn't want to pay for that. 

So far my room is coming along great! I still need another nightstand and my TV needs to be mounted but other than that I don't really plan on adding any other furniture in my room. I might end up removing the bench that I made for my room and finding somewhere else in the house to put it but we'll see. If I decide to remove the bench then I do have my eyes on this lingerie chest because then it will help clear up some space in my closet. My closet is a bit a small and I probably need to go through it and remove some clothing items that I no longer wear but I struggle with getting rid of clothes. I'm so picky when I shop anyways that I feel like if something is cute I'll probably end up wearing it again. I am also finished with my gallery wall, I only need to hang 2 more items and then it should be complete!

So I have this little room outside of my bedroom and there's a small space behind the door that I plan on adding this shoe cabinet from IKEA because I absolutely need more shoe space! I have run out of room in my shoe closet and had to move my athletic shoes to the floor of my actual closet haha. I'm hoping that it will be wide enough for me to be able to also make it like a jewelry station because I literally have no room in my room for any of my jewelry stands. I actually left all of my jewelry at my parents house because I have nowhere for it to go in my house.  

That's it for now. Hopefully we'll be able to finish the built-in bookshelves before the end of the year haha and then our next big project is built-ins in our breakfast nook with a bench for our table!

XO, Steph
