i love the fourth of july and everything it entails: fireworks, pools, friends, and most importantly – FOOD! i saw this idea over on the twig & thistle blog yesterday and i HAVE to make them on sunday for everybody! don’t these look amazing?

i was on etsy this morning, and on their home page, they were featuring these very familiar glasses i thought i had just seen. turns out – i had! they were at the highlands street fair in denver on saturday night! pretty cute huh?

this cute little mini bar was given to me by the mcmahon’s when they were moving out! aric + i decided to give it a little update! i bet you can’t guess what color we decided to paint it…

BEFORE:

 

AFTER:

that’s right – white + gray! haha.

sorry for the terrible quality in pictures – i took these really fast in the basement, which doesn’t have very good light. i love this fresh makeover! white spray paint + gray paint + new knob from hobby lobby! such an easy project!

happy weekend yall! i’ll be back next week with another before + after and a bookmark save the date! enjoy the weekend!

okay all – i did it! my first painting job with stripes!! it was exhausting but worth it!! saturday, my aunt B and i headed out to home depot to pick up paint. i decided to get behr primr + paint in “silky white” and martha stewart living’s “heavy goose” for the stripes. 2 coats of white later we had our canvas. sunday rolled around and B came back over to help tape out the stripes! this was a bit challenging – so i’m so glad i had her there to help!

THE PROCESS

 

 

VOILA!! yeah! it’s done and i love it so very very much!!! i can’t wait to hang the new mirror i got last weekend and also to put the new bar in!!

remember the post i did last week about my before + after desk project? well it’s finally finished!! yeah! here is my desk re-painted and in it’s new spot in the office! i still need new knobs. any suggestions? colored, clear…?

it looks a thousand times better! note – my laptop isn’t on the desk, which completes the office set up! the monitor isn’t a computer – just an extra screen for designing!

 

and here is a sneak peak into m.press’ new headquarters:

side desk table {found at a flea market sale last year}

contents on the side desk table {i cannot live without my mary engelbreit desk calendar. i’ve had one every year since i was in middle school! and notes from friends are always fun to read over and over again}

i found this picture of one of my best friends, ashley armstrong, in one of my picture frames the other day. it was one of 5 pictures in there! this was taken on our trip to L.A. the summer before our junior year of college! can you read what’s in the sand? this makes me miss her and summer vacation!

as you might have noticed, i really like calendars! this snow + graham one sits on my desk. i love it’s simplicity.
