Can we all just reflect on the fact that March is (just about) half way over? I can’t even handle it. This month is flying by, this year is flying by, and this weekend definitely flew by.
Friday I got off a little bit early from work so I went to run some errands while Matt finished up. I headed to Target (can we talk about how much cute shoes and clothes they have right now? Can we also talk about how cute their Threshold brand home decor stuff is?) I know, I know, this really isn’t news to anyone but everytime I’m there I just want to buy all the things.
We headed home after work and watched two movies- Horrible Bosses and the Hangover II. Both great and hilarious.
Saturday we woke up and started our day off in a lazy state of coffee on the couch, How I met your mother in the background and (maybe) a late morning nap on my end. The best kind of naps.
Around lunch time we headed to Lowe’s because #newhomeownerprojects are always underway in our house.
I really wanted to do some industrial piping shelves in our office. We are planning on re-doing it and making it an office/sitting room for upstairs. It used to have both of our desks in there and a book shelf but now we are transitioning it to have one desk a couch, tv, shelves, etc.
At Lowes we realized our budget for the pipe shelves was going to be blown so we decided to start with the minimum pieces to get the project going and then end up adding to it over time.
For whatever reason, when we first moved into this house back in August I was determined to have an accent wall in our office. I wanted it to be super dark green or blue but unfortunately it just never really turned out to be what I wanted.
We wanted to do some awesome paneling to cover the wall and we found some at lowes (I’ll do an entire DIY post on these shelves and project later this week!)
Saturday we put up all the paneling and decided to call it a day after it was all put up.
Saturday night we ordered in take out and settled in to watch Horrible Bosses 2.
Sunday we woke up to the most beautiful snow!
It snowed all morning long until about 11:00. We got about 2 inches. And then. By 1:00 it was all gone. Literally all melted. If you had woken up at like 1:30 in the afternoon you would have never known it had snowed. It was such a bummer because I love love love when it snows.
While it was snowing I made blueberry muffins and we spent the morning drinking coffee, watching the snow fall, and I finished up one of my March reads.
Sunday afternoon we decided to finish up this fun project:
It was a little messy and it took us a little longer than we thought but it was so fun to do together and definitely satisfying to get our new shelves put up.
I still have some rearranging to do and we still may end up adding one more shelf to the top but we ran out of the special screws we were using for the industrial piping. I also plan on adding a little more piping to attach the shelves but that will come another day/month.
Sunday night we watched Lord of the Rings and The Secret Life of Pets (I know, quite the move connoisseur’s) then headed to bed.
Happy Monday peeps!
