getting my monday act together

Monday can be a little intimidating, looking forward to all that needs to be done during the coming week. I have lots to do, including finalizing the kitchen paint color. After too much deliberating, I think it's finally going to be Benjamin Moore's Stone Harbor, a nice taupe that seems, in the light in our home anyway, to sit perfectly between brown and gray. You've may have noticed it in this month's House Beautiful. Yup. I think this is going to be it. {And yes, it is pretty much the same as my kitchen wall color now. Boring, I know!}


We've also done the cabinet plan—huge sigh of relief! And once we finalize the cabinet color, we're ready to put the order in. So, what else are we waiting for? Well, money for one. We've had so many expenses the past few months and are trying to catch up before we start ordering flooring and lighting. I'm watching the dollars and cannot wait til we get there!

Another task on my list: get together some recent pics of a new project. The big pieces are in, and the transformation is already incredible. A sneak peek, and I am in love with this chair...


What's on your list this week? How about we all have another cup of coffee and browse Pinterest for a while before we get to work?!

So exciting that the kitchen plans are coming together! Pinterest is a dangerous addiction for me....unfortunately I often spend the wee dark hours of night browsing around instead of sleeping!

I really, really like the color you picked for your door, Casey. And of course, I can never wait to see what you've been up to with your clients because it always turns out so well.

Good for you for saving your pennies for the kitchen renovation. I know how hard it is to wait for it.

What a great door color! I'm so ready to change mine up too. How exciting that your kitchen plans are coming together. I know it will be amazing when you are finished.

The client project looks great from what I see so far.

I have a love/hate relationship with Mondays. I love a fresh start but I also have a hard time getting back into the weekday routine as well. I can't wait to check out that color in your kitchen.

The cabinet color is a great one, and I'm sure you will love it for a long time. And you are very smart for taking your time with the renovation rather than rushing it.

And don't even get me started on your client sneak peak. That chair is fab!
