So what did you do this long weekend, friends? It was gorgeous here in Boston and we took full advantage of the weather, spending time as a family at birthday parties, soccer games, the beach, and a local apple orchard picking more than enough apples for half a dozen pies.
When we got home from the orchard, I continued the harvest theme by gathering the blossoms off our newly-planted hydrangeas. So beautiful!
Finally, I started a project more than a year in the making. Last year when I hit Brimfield with my friend Cheri, I got some really fabulous pieces (including the guy featured in this post), most of which I justified by saying, "when I get home I'll just paint/strip/reupholster this!" Turns out I'm using a lot of what I bought as is, BUT there was one piece that had no purpose without a little work. So this weekend, I finally took a few hours to start working on what I think will be an awesome addition to our living room. Stay tuned!
