GUESS WHAT!!!!

I grouted my brick wall and I LLLLOVE it!

Do you remember the faux brick wall I put up in my cozy, cottage living room?  If not, you can check it out {here}.

It is constructed of simple wood panels I bought from Lowe’s.

I loved it, I really did but it was very dark and not quite the vintage, cottagy look I was looking for.

Not to mention my couch was a few to many shades of darkness….

 So, we replaced the couch with the cute Ektorp loveseat I love from IKEA (less than $500).

And I decided that I definitely needed to grout in between the brick.

It worked out great.  I mixed it in a disposable container with enough water to make it the perfect consistency then I used the trowel  to smear it into the cracks in between the brick.

I also made it imperfect on purpose because the imperfections are actually what makes it look a little more real…

I changed the picture on the shelf in the hall while I was at it…I really like this Photograph & I love just having the one picture,

I have been very into simplifying & de-cluttering my life lately…

Live Beautifully/ Snippets of DesignStill can’t wait to show you the kitchen attached to those wood planked walls.  It’s my favorite. :-)

Wood planked walls, open shelving & we honestly didn’t spend that much…

I just have to finish a few more details, then I will start bringing it to you a part at a time.

soon I think…very soon ;-)

In the meantime, We built some barn doors, HARDWARE & ALL ( have you seen the price of barn door hardware???? ugh) for around $75.

We prettied-up our garage door for $40.

& I will be sharing tutorials on sewing furniture covers & a very easy pillow.

Not to mention recipes, napkin folds & more…

So, Live Beautifully my Friends!

I will see you very soon!
