Favorite Fire Pit Area: This fire pit has a beautiful pea gravel surround. It really defines the space in Repurpose and Upcycle’s backyard. She shares how she got the look.

Favorite Floor Design: Give me all the herringbone! These floors are stealing the show which is hard with that gorgeous dramatic black wall.

Favorite Office Chairs: This room is big on style. The desk is amazing and the chairs are just so perfect. If this were in my house, I might not want to let the kids do their homework here because, I would love working in here.

Favorite Backsplash: I have had a slight crush on marble lately. This backsplash is no exception. It looks gorgeous and it really makes a statement by going all the way to the top of the cabinets. 

Aff Amazon Toytape

Favorite new why-didn’t-I-think-of-that boredom buster for kids: I came across this on Amazon and it’s brilliant! This ToyTape (affiliate link) is peel and stick tape to make your own roads and cities. Perfect for the wet spring we’ve had that has caused some cabin fever!
