We officially have a walking baby!! Landon has been taking a few wobbly steps each day but last night he walked all the way across the living room! It was cute, exciting and terrifying all at the same time 🙂 With each new milestone comes a whole new stage of unexpectedness (I’m going to pretend that’s a word).
My friend, Janine and I made a trip to Ikea the other day. On the way, we decided to pull off the freeway in search of a cute little café she had heard of. We didn’t find the café, but we did find THE BEST home store I have found in Portland to date. It is called City Home and it is the most amazing mix of vintage & new, rustic & eclectic. It really has something for everyone. I just know I am going to be back again and again, especially after bringing home this light fixture that I am absolutely obsessed with. And don’t worry, I did get some cute little faux herb plants from Ikea as well, those will be used in a later post.
I had so much fun with this project! It was a true DIY, taking some inspiration from Pinterest and creating my own building plans. Most of the pipe desks I’ve seen are simple straight lines. I wanted a tiny bit more interest so I incorporated the crisscross design in the base of the desk.
It’s official…I’m fully addicted to Fixer Upper. I can’t stop watching, and I watch the same episodes over and over. I’m watching an old episode from season 1 as I type! I love the work, ideas and inspiration of Chip and Joanna. And they are so cute and funny together! If you haven’t seen it, check it out. And if you like “rustic farmhouse” style, this show will make you wanna remodel your entire house.
