Fourth Of July Inspiration For Your Home

Hi Guys!
   Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog post. Today I wanted to share how I sprinkled just a little bit of Fourth Of July decor around my home. For me, what's great about this holiday is I don't have to store any of my reg decor. I just sprinkle it in with my existing stuff. When I decorate for Christmas I put all of my normal decor away to make room. 
Here in the kitchen I just added some dish towels and a couple mini American flags, they are on the stove in a pitcher with some white roes. 

I love decorated my dining table. This is a pretty big size room and we decided to utilize the other half of the room as our bar. We like to host parties.  

 Close up view! 

These bunting flags you can get all year round at Walmart. Just a fun and festive added touch.  I found the pillows online at Kohls. 

I can't remember where this garland is from. If I had to guess it would be Rod Works here in Las Vegas.  Sadly, they are closing.

Two Kitchen Upgrades We Love - Part 1

There are actually more than two ideas I love that we included in our new kitchen but today I will talk about two of them. 
The first is our dual trash cans. Here in Las Vegas we are encouraged to recycle. I'm a big advocate for it myself and try to do my part. We also have a big dog that is very clever and likes to dig in the trash and this prevents him.  This dual trash can is well worth giving up cabinet space for. Any cabinet company you choose to go with will have this option. The recycling bin also comes with a green lid so when you have parties people know to recycle. 

Next up is this really cool kitchen counter pop up with three outlets & two USB slots. When not in use it sits flush with the counter. If I don't want it to show then I just slide my 3 tier tray on top of it. When we had our counter tops installed we just had them cut a hole for it.  To have someone cut it out on an existing counter tops would run about $100. You can find this model linked here.

DIY Chicken Coop Condo

Well hello, and thank you for taking the time to read my blog post on how we built this beautiful chicken condo. 

If you are an avid DIY'er then you know that projects always take longer than you estimate. With that being said there is defiantly something special about taking a space like our side yard and creating something beautiful with your own two hands. I have been dreaming of this chicken coop since the day we bought our house. I am very grateful to have a husband who was willing to build this for our three little ladies...Pearl, Opal, & Ruby. 

Here is our side yard that faces east. 

I thought long and hard about this written form tutorial and this was such a long project I thought this DIY would be better in video form. There are so many details we learned along the way that I thought it would be best to link you to the videos I made on how we created this chicken coop.  We had no plans, I just took some inspiration from pinterest and winged it. Thats kinda how my husband…
