Thank goodness it’s Friday. I’ve been counting down the days all week – now that we’ve gotten started on the garage, I’m DYING to keep the momentum going. Hopefully we’ll get some more done this weekend!
In the meantime, though, it’s time to check out some inspiration from around the web this week. Enjoy!

I just ordered this stencil as part of my prize package from winning one of the weeks in Creating With the Stars, and I’m SO excited about it. I have absolutely zero plans for where to use it, and no idea what I’ll end up doing, but I’m obsessed with it. I think it looks awesome with the mixed colors, but it would be gorgeous with a single color as well. I love that it’s not a full herringbone pattern – it feels a little more unique and whimsical than the traditional pattern, and it’s just so dang fun!

I’ve seen the little graphic that’s all over the place about how you should hang your windows high and wide, and it’s advice I’ve doled out more than a time or two myself. But I’ve never seen an actual real-life comparison…and it’s mind-blowing! The photo on the left has the curtain rod hung lower and right where the window is, and the one on the right has it hung higher and wider than it needs to be…and I feel like it makes a huge difference in the whole room! I love this visual example of a “design rule” I’ve been following for so long!

I LOVE this look! I’ve been wanting to update our house numbers for a while now, and I never thought to put them on their own little plaque like this. It’s such a fun look and it helps them stand out a little more!

Isn’t that wall treatment absolutely incredible? I’m now officially scouring my house for a good spot to replicate it…because I’m in love!
I’ve seen this project in a million different forms all over Pinterest lately, and I have to admit I’m intrigued. I don’t like the look enough to do it throughout our entire house (and, honestly, something about plywood floors throughout our house just doesn’t sit right with me), but I’m SO tempted to try it out. Depending on what our budget ends up looking like for the garage, we might try this out in here…what could it hurt?!
