Mirrored Closet Doors

Mirrored Closet Doors

Happy Monday, friends! When I shared my master bedroom makeover a couple of weeks ago I had quite a few questions about whether or not we still had our mirrored closet doors! Yep, we sure do!

I snapped a couple of cell phone pics for you last night so you could see that they are still here (and Lily wanted to say hi).

I’ve considered changing the doors out and will probably do that at some point. But for now I like that they expand the size of the space and reflect more light, especially since it’s such a small room. And it’s really nice to have a full length mirror when you’re getting ready in the morning!

Changing these doors just hasn’t been a top priority project. Plus I have a potential future project that might require me moving them, anyway, so I’m kind of holding out until I know for sure what I’m doing. :) Fortunately the frames are white so they fit in O.K. for now.

I do think one set is enough in this space, however, and we have a second set on the other side of the room. If I was going to change even just one set, I’d change out this far side to quiet the room a bit and so you don’t see yourself walking into the room all the time (and so it doesn’t reflect the room back down the hall!).

Hope that clears up the mystery of the mirrored doors!

Do you have projects around your house that are like #175,645 on your list, but you still believe you’ll get to them, ha!?

Preparing the Backyard for Sunny Days!

Who is looking forward to nice weather? Me! Me! (jumping up and down). I’ve seen SNOW in some yards around the country lately, so I really have nothing to complain about. We’ve already had some sun, but don’t be jealous, just live vicariously :).

When the sun emerges, I LOVE having special spots where I can head out the yard to enjoy coffee, a picnic lunch, or even just to relax.

A couple of weeks ago I found a hammock, pillows and the most adorable little bistro set with a table and two chairs at tjmaxx.com and they were PERFECT for the areas I envisioned.

My favorite thing about having a nice sized backyard is there is plenty of room to create several different zones for activities. Yet the cool thing is that you can create a charming destination even on a little patch of grass. You don’t need a fancy patio or big yard for this! And you don’t need a ton of money, thanks to tjmaxx.com!

When the sun came out last week, I was practically skipping through the yard I was so happy! I found a SUPER adorable picnic basket at T.J.Maxx that had inspired me for summer picnics. Seattle is full of amazing parks and we even have two beaches within just a few minutes of our home, so it’s safe to say this basket will be put to good use this spring and summer!

How could you not be giddy with a basket this sweet?

Besides its cute watermelon fabric interior, it came with all the fun plates, cutlery, a tablecloth and napkins, goblets and a bottle opener.

The planter is one of my favorite finds, isn’t it the coolest with that trendy wood stand? I’ve been on the hunt for one like this for awhile. You know what is even better? It was only $12.99!

Just as I would for a room in the house, of course I wanted to add a little mood lighting in this space. This wood lantern is perfect and I love the rope handle on it. (Plus, I added a battery operated candle to make this a romantic little spot at dusk).

I have to say I’ve dreamed about a hammock for our backyard for years. Who wouldn’t want to head to a relaxing destination like this for a lazy spring afternoon? Now, I haven’t quite mastered the art of hammock balancing, but once I get the hang of it I think I could get used to this quaint napping spot by our camellia.

I also got a few pillows for maximum comfort and a little extra style, too.

Even if you have to wait a little longer for spring weather, maybe you’ll find a little sunshine in a basket like I did!

Happy day!
