From the Front Porch

Happy Friday, you guys! How’s your week going? Do you have anything fun planned for this weekend? I’m so excited we are finally nearing the end of the construction phase of the One Room Challenge. I’ve never been so excited to clean the kitchen, breakfast nook and entry ha ha. I know it’s all part of the process though and at the end of the project it’s going to be totally worth it. The stenciled floors made a huge difference and now that they are finished we will be able to move on to other things like molding and accessories. I went shopping with my mom yesterday and came home with a car full of goodies. I’m also hoping we can move some of the furniture back into the room this weekend so next week we’ll be able to start decorating.

Scenes from my week:

*Stenciling and Starbucks on a Sunday afternoon

*Estate Sale Shopping with my sweet mom

*So many things are blooming around our property like this Texas Sage bush



Here are a few fun things we found around the web this week… (Affiliate links have been provided for your convenience. You can read our full disclosure policy here)

We’re also looking to add a few warmer touches to our all white kitchen and this post is filled with creativity.
