Potting Bench Gets a Makeover In Time For Spring


Potting Bench Gets a Makeover In Time For Spring- design addict mom
     I know many of us are buried in snow and cannot wait for Spring to show up. In anticipation of Spring and to give my potting bench a new lease on life, I gave it a bit of tlc.

The outdoor elements had taken a toll on it over the years.

This it what it looked like after it was first built. The hubby used left over wood from our shed that was recently built to make it and I didn't want to paint it. Instead I left the natural wood and sealed it, but it became very weathered in appearance(see above) over time.

And now for the fun part; I made sure to give it a light sanding with my favorite sander and then hosed it down to get rid of all the debris.

After waiting for it to be thoroughly dry, I painted it using a quart of Glidden exterior paint called Jungle Vine. I gave it two coats using a foam roller for a smoother finish.

Have a Sunny Weekend!

Have a Sunny Weekend- design addict mom
The sunlight has blessed us with its presence the past two days and I couldn't be happier- we also get to a high of 70 degrees today! Yippee! Glory the fiddle leaf fig is also thrilled and happy to be soaking up the sun.

 In other news, this weekend(on Sunday), Zion turns 9 years old, 9 people! Can you believe that? My, how time flies!

 Also, I just recently got the coolest headphones(the ones pictured). Known as the Sudio Regent, they are not only comfortable to wear, but they also have bluetooth capability- so cool! You can get your own or check them out HERE.

Here are some basic tips too from the archives about how I care for Glory, my fiddle leaf fig.


I hope you have a sunny and happy weekend. Stay warm! xx

Before and After: A Foyer Refresh With Paint

Before and After: A Foyer Refresh With Paint- design addict mom
 Am I never not painting a wall?  I recently gave our foyer a bold makeover using paint and I love the results. It's been such a mood enhancer to soak up this space these last couple days with this dreary cold weather we've been having. I used the paint color, Benjamin Moore Peony Pink, a color that I really love and used once before in our kitchen.

I also moved some art around and love how this new color draws attention to the blue on the inside of the front door.  I am hoping Spring will show up soon but in the meantime, at least it feels like Spring inside!  Stay warm friends. xx
