Laundry Room Refresh Week 5

Week Five is here for the One Room Challenge of freshening up our laundry room.

If you are just checking in here for the first time, I'm a link up participant for Linda of Calling It Home's One Room Challenge that she hosts twice a year.

Here's a recap of my weeks leading up til today:

Last week was pretty unproductive and I was really hoping that more would've gotten done but honestly this will be a super quick post because not much was done. 

Painting didn't get done. I'm hoping to do that this weekend. It should go quick and hoping it will only need one coat.

My husband did a little DIY for me. I saw this Pottery Barn hanging system and love the simple look of it. 

 I love the simplicity of it and we had some leftover wood from the moldings, so we used that. We bought a 5/8" w dowel and cut it into 9 pegs. We found these black rubber caps and after we painted the pegs/rail, we attached those.

 Sorry for the very poor photo. Just have the peg rail sitting against the wall for now until I paint the room. I really like the look and hoping if I do decide in the future to buy any of the Pottery Barn components to this system it will fit our peg rail.

Now for the very bad news... I will more than likely NOT be done by Thursday's deadline. It is totally my fault. I was indecisive about what tile to use and for some reason thought I'd be able to find it in stock somewhere. Silly me. I got it ordered and it should've been here by now but there has been a delay. It should arrive now early next week, anywhere from Monday-Wednesday. Crossing fingers that there isn't any more delays. If we get the tile like Monday we might have a fighting chance.

Please do come back to see the final reveal (whenever that might be-gulp). I'm so excited to see the tile installed!

Here is this week's 20 designers/bloggers updates here, and the many other link up participants progress here


Fall House Tour 2015

While I love all the little things that each season brings, I really love decorating for fall. I love adding new textures, and the burnt oranges, reds, and browns that I don't usually have in my day to day decor colors. It's sort of fun decorating for seasons like this because you can sort of redo rooms with just little touches without redoing the WHOLE room.

Some people go all out for decorating for the fall, and some people like to just add a thing or two and call it good. I think I fall somewhere in the middle. I don't decorate for Halloween, I decorate for fall and keep these items around from October until Thanksgiving.

Every year, I try to mix things up a little and sometimes I may add a new item. This year I did not buy anything new.

Here's a tour of my house this year.

As you can see I started out with the top photo of decorating our entry table, but rearranged somethings so I could use things for my mantle.

I really love the texture of the woven bottle and the owl next to the boxwood.

Nothing beats a good chili. 

And I was super excited to see Pier 1 used my photo on their Instagram feed.

If you don't follow me on Instagram, I'd like to share my recent design book purchases as of late.
Emily Henderson's Styled
Below, Lauren Liess' book Habitat.

And lastly, Ellen DeGeneres' book Home.
While I have not read through them all, I have started them all and they are all SO good in their unique and different ways.

I hope you enjoyed the little tour and hoping you have a fun & safe Halloween.
