This blog post is for all of those sitting on the couch, full + happy from from great food and wonderful times spent with family. My parents got to see the new house for the first time this weekend, which has been great. We’ve had days of great food, shopping, and a big win for the Buckeyes! Safe to say, it’s been a great and needed long weekend. I hope you all enjoyed these few days and are now relaxing before the week begins!
I’ve also been able to go through the images I got from last weeks hiking/Charlotte trip. I was really worried we scheduled this trip too late and the fall leaves would be gone, but I’m so happy I was wrong. The top of the mountain was starting to lose leaves, but the golds and reds still covered the drive and all of the lower walk. We hiked Kings Pinnacle at Crowder Mountain State Park. It was about a 4 mile hike with really beautiful views at the top. The hike to the peak was pretty steep, but I highly recommend this trail! So, while your digesting crazy amounts of thanksgiving turkey + potatoes, I hope you can take a few minutes to enjoy these fall filled photos.
A day late here, cause I just got back from a night in Charlotte. I’ll share some of those photos next week, but for now I wanted to share a little update on the house! After we got our countertops finished, the house was starting to feel too white and grey and I needed a little color in my life.
I originally wanted to do a dark teal-y green like this kitchen on pinterest, but it didn’t quite fit the rest of the decor right now. Matt was not entirely on board with my dreams of green and gold accent colors, but I think the muted jade I settled on made him less worried. I ended up choosing Privilege Green – part of the HGTV Home collection at Sherwin Williams. I absolutely love it.
Painting the island was such a quick way to break up the neutrals and if we get tired of it, it’s super easy to change. See everything I used below, this whole thing took maybe 2 hours — with dry time being the biggest time delay.
All the tools:
First coat painted, then went back through with the little brush for the edges.
I love how the color turned out. I’ve been kicking it into high gear getting everything decorated and finished here, I want it done for the holidays. My parents are visiting for Thanksgiving and they get here tomorrow! This is their first time seeing the house, so I’m trying to get it as ready as possible — I guess I should go get started on cleaning everything. Have a wonderful weekend and thanksgiving week everyone!
I’m trading in beach photos for fall feels + changing leaves this week. Fall colors are making their way to this little beach town! Snow pics are starting to pop up from friends in the midwest, we may not be there yet with our mid 70s weather, but at least I can start pulling out my jeans and light sweaters.
We’re starting to slow down on house projects and our couch arrived a few days ago – just in time for the coziest part of the year! The boy, the pup, & I spent some time at Greenfield Lake Park to enjoy the beginnings of the season. We’re heading on a hike next weekend to Charlotte to see the leaves change in the mountains, but we had a few date changes, so I’m really hoping we don’t miss it!
