Josh & Alyssa's House

We recently spent a weekend with my cousins, Alyssa & Josh.

It was so much fun spending time with them and checking out 
their incredible home.

Look at this cute little neighborhood!

Molding everywhere!

Seriously, look at those floors.

Love the exposed brick!

The kitchen has TONS of storage.

I absolutely love this house.  Thanks to Alyssa and Josh 
for letting me show it off.

Curio Cabinet Makeover

I bought this at a thrift store for $50 about 5 years ago.
I painted the exterior a creamy color and the interior back wall a pale grey-blue.  

I love the blue but I'm slowly swapping pale colors for darker, richer ones.

Here are some of my treasures that were in the cabinet.

I took everything out and cleaned each piece.  
The coral is delicate, so I ran it under water, got all the dust out, and let it air dry.

It came out pretty great.  
I love it :)

Out With The Old

After 15 years, our waterbed sprung its last leak.

So long, old friend.

We slept on this while we waited for our delivery.
It wasn't so bad; we sort've felt like we were camping.

Two weeks later...our bed arrived!
The upgrade from a queen to a king meant that our old furniture wouldn't fit in our tiny room.

Our old queen bedding wouldn't fit either. 
The wheels started turning...

Stay tuned!
