House Update + Hump Day Giveaway Printable

Hey! Are you having a good week? I hope so :) Today I wanted to share a little bit from our weekend. We were in Maryland working on our entry.. It's definitely taking longer than we hoped, but we're getting close!

We found these poppies in our front yard, it's been fun seeing what's popped up this spring! Bud vases from Pottery Barn 

I took this pic right before we started working Saturday morning.

We left off about a month ago with almost all the tile laid out - we just had to cut the edge tiles. So we marked and cut on a tile saw. We opted to purchase verse renting since we're planning a few more tile projects and figured that it would save money in the end. We went with this mid priced one from Home Depot. In store, it seemed sturdy and well built. We've found that it's typically best to go with at least mid priced tools to save the aggravation of the tool not working properly or breaking (also check online reviews!) .. in the end it saves money!

It worked perfectly! We got all of the tile cut..

Since the baseboard trim doesn't cover the beams, it needs to be flush on those areas. There were some tricky cuts! (the edges just laid out in this pic so the spacing is a little off) Collapsible baskets from Pottery Barn and yellow garden stool from Home Goods.

I LOVE it!! Can't wait to finish this room - hopefully by the beginning of July!!

David also hung the Capri Pendant from Kenroy Home. Love it!!

Finally, in the spirit of home, a free printable!
