Bridal Shower

This past weekend was full out wedding fun! I can't believe the festivities have begun and have quickly begun to realize how soon this will all be over and the whole marriage thing will begin. Heather Baker, my  matron of honor, hosted a beautiful shower at my parent's house. There were tons of adorable yellow and gray details (thanks in part to my sister, Stephanie, mom, and sis in law, Ashley). It was so fun to have many of my favorite ladies together in one place. As chaotic as it was it is a memory I won't ever forget.

Bench Redo

Since I have owned my own home I have really gotten into furniture redos. I love what you can do with an old piece of furniture. The other day I found an old bench in my parents garage and knew it would be perfect in my sunroom. First, I cleaned it and sanded it down. 

After sanding

Then I primed it

Then I painted it and searched the world for cushions. I couldn't find the perfect size so I got two that 'worked' and added some pillows. I love the way it turned out.
