a little more progress ♥

our home is always a work in progress for me.
discovering what our style/function is as a family is a constant learning process.
and trying to combine the two together is something i'm always learning

so while stepping back these past few months 
i've focused on finishing up our family room and i will share a full room tour soon
as well as some of the project how-to's i tackled.

i found this coffee table at a thrift store for $7!
gave it a few coats of white spray paint and a little distressing
finished off the top with chalkboard paint
my girls love it so much ... a big jar of rainbow chalk lives on the table top now.

gallery walls are hard!
too much? too little?
i kept moving things around but finally settled on this arrangement.

spray paint weather has officially arrived
save all your glass jars girls!
and turn them into something beautiful

these jars were headed straight for this old Coke bottle caddy that i picked up at whatever craft weekend last year ... filled with pens & pencils and other fun colorful things

i also took some time to do some clean-up in my craft room
it's been quiet in there for the past few months

and at the same time the window treatments in there finally broke after being on the edge for a year. so after some time at my sewing machine & a few vintage sheets later 
... new curtains!
still need a few adjustments & hemming but i'll get to that.

what are you guys up to lately?
has the farwell of the never ending winter got you started on new projects?
spring cleaning? do tell :)
much love ♥
