Life Lately

Sorry for being MIA lately! I've gotten behind on a few projects and have had some personal things come up so my focus has been elsewhere lately.

That being said, I thought I'd share a few miscellaneous things that have been going on around our house in case you don't follow me on Instagram.

We painted our office:

We did it over Memorial Day weekend which just goes to show you how far behind I am haha The color is perfect and I can't wait to share it with you!

We also made the long trek up to IKEA to get some shelving units for the room:

We got 3 of the double Vittsjo units that I finally finished spray painting navy about a week ago. They've been brought up to the office and secured to the wall but I haven't gotten around to styling them yet.

Speaking of purchases…

I got an awesome new rug at HomeGoods a few weeks ago! I don't know where it's going to end up but we're thinking about putting it in the living room. We'll need to replace our couch first though so it'll probably be a while before you (or I) see it again, unfortunately.

I also got this heavy, iron plaque at HomeGoods:

I'm not sure where it'll end up but it was too cool and too cheap (only $10!) to pass up!

  1. I was wondering what you have been up to. Can't wait to see all you finished changes!

  2. def digging the ikea shelves! and that rug, that's an amazing find!

  3. Oh my that rug! I need to get to Homegoods even though it will just sit in storage for months. Totally worth it. Can't wait to see the shelves all styled and looking gorgeous! I love the navy you picked!

  4. I was wondering where you went! Sometimes we just need to focus on real life :) I'm excited to see all your projects fall into place.

  5. Thanks Julia and Erin! :)

    Amber - I hope you can find one! My store had two - the one I got and then another one that was baby blue with a white pattern. It's super soft and the colors in the pattern vary from dark to light in certain spots so it almost looks like it's vintage!

    Thanks Kenz! :)

  6. Those were some great finds Caitlin :). That rug is so awesome!
