We are officially halfway through 2017! Time seems to always pass by too quickly. Last night I was putting my daughter to bed and she started crying because she didn't want to grow older and lose a tooth like her cousin recently did. In between tears she said, “Can I not grow bigger and stay just the way I am right now mom?” I hugged her and said, “I wish you could stay exactly like this a little bit longer too!” Lucky for us, there are always things to look forward to! The end of June means July is upon us and we get o celebrate America's birthday! Freedom, family, food, fireworks and fun! We hope you enjoy this upcoming month just as much as we do! And to make sure you don't miss any of our fun projects from last month, here is our June month in review!
Last month Cassity got to reveal her big April adventure. Guys, you need to check out her post and read about The Design Dash. It sounds absolutely amazing. Cassity was on of 8 bloggers to travel to North Carolina and work with La-Z-Boy to design a room. Without knowing exactly what her room would look like, she had to walk around the La-Z-Boy showroom, trying to find pieces for a hypothetical space, and was limited on the items she could select. Her room turned out gorgeous and our fingers are crossed to see if she won overall for favorite look!
Justin was also able to go on a learning adventure recently in Charlotte, NC. Him and a few others partnered up with National Gypsum to learn all about their product called PURPLE XP. He basically learned more than he ever thought possible about Dry Wall and is sharing that new knowledge with us! I found it completely fascinating, check out Learning About Drywall, PURPLE XP | Blogger Event before your next project and see what new knowledge you can apply to your home!
Despite the travels, they have been keeping busy around their home too and, as always, have put together some incredible tutorials for us! They shared with us their beautiful Dining Room Hutch Makeover: Painting Furniture with No Sanding, No Priming, No Sealer. This project has been in the planning stages for years! Cassity knew what she wanted it to look like and says this hutch sealed the deal on them getting this particular home! It didn't work out perfect, in that they had to knock the wall out, but they were able to keep it in one piece and the finished product was worth the wait!
Now is the best time to do your outdoor projects, so that you can enjoy them too! Justin recently completed a DIY Modern Deck Pergola with Plans. A great way to update your outdoor space and make it a dedicated outdoor room with purpose! Relaxing, dining, hosting, the possibilities are endless! What would you do with your outdoor room?
They also would like to introduce you to the newest member of their family! Check out all their tips and tricks and fabulous DIY projects that make everything more simple at home: It's a Jungle in Here…
