BOTB 9.19.14

By Kate Riley September 19, 2014

Greetings everyone! This weekend, we’re taking advantage of the fine fall weather and hosting some friends for dinner out in our courtyard. Ever since we hung strings of globe lights out there it feels enchanting and cozy in the evenings when we light up the outdoor fireplace.

We have a full weekend of things to do, tomorrow we’re headed back to Grandma’s to get more estimates on her kitchen renovation. I can feel fall in the air so I’m in the mood to go grab some pumpkins for the porch this weekend. My local Trader Joe’s has a great selection of Cinderellas every year and they arrive tomorrow, so I’ll be stopping there to stock up. This weekend is another round of inspiring projects and ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ favorites, enjoy!

We love this neutral textured boy nursery by Autumn at Design Dump !

Get the look of the pricey Restoration Hardware chandelier for so much less with Lauren’s hula hoop trick she used to make this rope chandelier at Bless’er House.

We love a 100+ year old home restoration project and this bathroom at 702 Park Project is one amazing transformation.

Who says gourds should to stay their natural color? Michael at Inspired by Charm had some fun painting his gourds bright colors for fall.

  1. Thank you for another interesting BOTB. FYI – The link for the watercolor leaves does not work.

  2. It’s always wonderful to see the personal touches that are involved in DIY projects, the stamped napkins are so simple but a great statement. Also the bathroom renovation is astounding, I love the look of subway tiles and the vintage bathtub. Thank you for the ideas!
