Our Next project + Weekend in Review

Hi! I hope that you had a great weekend! David's parent's were visiting from the east coast, so we had fun exploring the area (and of course we fit in a little project time too!)

Saturday we went to Santa Barbara. It was such a hot and pretty day! We toured the mission, love the contrast against the mountains in the background! State St. is always one of my favorite stops.

Anthropologie and Paper Source always have fun things to look at. I made it out with just this napkin from Anthro, isn't it great? :)

We had dinner out on the pier. I love the glass bottom tables there. There are seals nearby, but we didn't see any swimming below. But, just looking at the water is pretty!

Finally, we decided that we would build a shelving unit similar to the Ikea Vittsjo for next to the sofa in the living room. $70 is definitely reasonable for the unit; however, taking into account that one wasn't quite long enough and needing to sell it at the end of the summer (we'll be selling lots of furniture when we move then) and not getting our money back, building made more sense. Our building supplies were super low, about $35! We still need to paint, but I like it so far!

Paint is up next! Check back for updates.


  1. Looks like a great weekend.
    Can't wait to see the finished shelving unit. Looks awesome so far!

  2. Anthro and Paper Source, two of my favorites. So smart with the bookshelves, I can't wait to see them.

  3. The shelf is looking good so far! Looking forward to the process. xo

  4. AH!!! Shelving!! :) They look lovely!! So does your weekend.
    Have a great week!


Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts! I love hearing what you think! :)
