The Week in Review | March 17-21

I’ve been absolutely obsessed with plans for our yard this spring and summer. No giant changes as far as adding a deck or shed or anything but an overall cleanup is in order and I am so so so excited to start an edible garden in our yard. Growing up in a yard that was so small we mowed it with a weed whacker and then living in apartments for the last decade has definitely left me pining for land. Not a greedy amount- but an efficient amount. And our yard is more than sufficient to grow a decent sized edible garden and still have room for a big harvest table. It’s our very own urban homestead!

So while I dream of dirt, take a look at these incredible transformations from the blogosphere this week…

Week in Review


  1. Unfortunately for Dana at House Tweaking, this is a before picture. This awesome chair had a little mishap with the gas fireplace screen. No one was harmed but this chair may never be the same. Sorry Dana!
  2. Erin at Elements of Style is also dreaming of yard time. She had her patio refinished last year and plans to take full advantage of it. Want some company Erin?
  3. Got to love an upcycling project and this one is so fabulous! Made + Remade‘s Samantha Pattillo turns a Craigslist credenza into a mid-century masterpiece!
  4. I’m not usually one for wallpaper but these woodland walls showcased on the Inspired Room may be my exception.
  5. Another amazing makeover happened over on With Heart. Check out her page to see Jen’s incredible before sofa. Maybe Dana should give Jen a call to fix that chair!
