Weekend Reading

By Kate Riley September 21, 2018

This weekend I have another DIY project I’m working on, I’m finally building shelves in my walk-in pantry. I’m ashamed to admit it but I’ve been storing my pantry goods on cheap metal shelving units for ten years, so I’m finally getting around to fixing that situation that’s been begging for my attention. Oh the shame. Of course I’ll share the final result when complete!

Autumn is officially here and isn’t this fleeting season so lovely with all the colorful fall leaves on display? I’m not into decorating around the house for Halloween, I prefer to simply add touches of autumn, but I do like this idea for a mantel, gather a bunch of objects (think thrift store candles and vases and faux craft pumpkins) and spray paint them matte black. Cheap, easy, and chic!
