[so cheap, so easy]: Oversized Magnet Board

I've had a couple of requests for the deets on my magnet board, so...a year later, here they are. I bought sheet metal measuring 5 feet by 4 feet from a heating and air-conditioning shop. It was right around $40. We (that usually means Jeremy hung it up, and I watched) used 18 screws and 18 washers to attach the metal to the wall. We used so many fasteners just to keep the sheet metal as flat as possible.  Stella is pretty much the boss of this board, and I love that it's a place where we can display all of her works of art.

[color kreyv]: Navy & Peach

I am a sucker for navy, and I love adding a pale peach or pink to the mix. It's kind of got a hard and soft thing going on. Speaking of hard and soft, my soft baby is crying really hard, so...gotta run.  In summary: peach, navy, good.

Kitchen Islands | Legs for Days

Hi. Remember me? Is anyone still out there? (Crickets, crickets...) Things around here have been cuh-ray-zee. I miss routine. And, of course, sleep. The good news is that Baby S is only waking up a couple of times a night (one of which is 6:00 a.m., which still feels like the middle of the night to me). Don't worry, though, I still find time to think about kitchen islands and legs. Because, well, come on, I'm only human. I discovered the other day that I have pinned the first image at least five times.  I guess I'm a little obsessed. But, really, who wouldn't be?!

Coziest Lil' Reading Nooks

Ok, I've officially said the word "nook" so many times in my mind that it doesn't even seem like a word. But, I promise, it is. And these, my friends, are some of the most beautiful nooks I've seen in a while. You're never going to believe this, but I wish I had one.

[color kreyv]: Gold Pendants

How fabulous are these gold pendants? I definitely feel the need to say fabulous (I'd even go as far as fab) when describing the lighting in these spaces. I think I kind of need them as soon as I get a house. And a white kitchen. And, of course, space for two or three gold pendants.  I've got goals, people.
