Is it just me or does this freezing cold weather just suck the life out of you too? I’m never one to complain about the cold (I am a self proclaimed winter girl) but boy oh boy, it has been so cold! I usually don’t wish away winter, but Spring sure is looking pretty good to me right about now. I will admit that I have been less than motivated this week. Maybe it was the cold or maybe I’m just having a bit of a decorating slump but I’m hoping I’ll be able to snap out of it this weekend. Our two projects right now, the transitional kids room and our home office makeover (I’ll have some updates on those this weekend) have had me busy coming up with plans, ideas and designs, so this week’s Friday Favorites is a bit of an abbreviated version…
I’ve been trying to come up with some pretty and practical storage solutions for our office and am leaning towards some sort of wall mounted shelving with boxes and baskets to house extra papers, documents, and office-y stuff that we don’t need on a daily basis. A simple solid or reclaimed wood shelf with contrasting iron brackets, like these ones that I found on Etsy, would bring the right amount of storage space and design contrast in the office. Let’s hope we can explore this idea a little bit more this weekend…
I love how Jennifer over at Dimples and Tangles added a little somethin’ somethin’ to her T.J. Maxx dining chairs. I’ve personally admired these chairs more than once during my T.J. Maxx runs and she really upped the ante with this chair makeover. Maybe a fab DIY chair makeover like this will convince my husband to get rid of his big, ugly desk chair (a girl can dream!)
One purchase that I made for our Home Office Makeover this week was this Threshold™ Brushed Silver Linear Floor Lamp from Target. I like the sleek & simple lines and industrial feel that comes along with it and it’s a perfect addition for the office. Super easy assembly too. I promise for some more detailed updates on our project soon.
4. The Puppy Bowl
I know most people are focusing on the Big Game this weekend, and while I’m not much of a football fan (especially when our Steelers aren’t playing) I am DEFINITELY a fan of The Puppy Bowl. I just can’t handle the cuteness. Between the Puppy Bowl and some much anticipated commercials, I think this girl will get more than her fill of the football festivities! ‘Nough said.
So, it may have been a slow week for me creatively, but my hopes are high for a productive weekend. What are some of your latest obsessions this week? Are you ready for the big Superbowl weekend?
