DIY Bucket List

There are approximately one million things going on right now, which has unfortunately meant that my little apartment has been getting no love. So this year instead of resolutions, I am making a list of home projects and DIYs that I want, must, NEED to get done as soon as Santa puts some free time in my stocking.

1. Finish painting the living room, the half-primed look is SO last year.

2. Finish painting the fireplace – and stop hiding it behind the pile of to-be-sold Craigslist items.

3. Sell all to-be-sold Craigslist items.

4. Maybe, possibly, hopefully make any progress at all on the bathroom and/or the kitchen (too many items to list)

5. Start/finish painting for my awesome and beautiful friend’s classroom.

6. Now the fun stuff – DIY gotta-dos:

     A. Finally copy-cat the shit out of The-Brick-House’s stuffed headboard, as I previously have posted, and drooled all over. (Am I crazy for liking version 1.0 better than 2.0?)

     B. Ferm Living inspired laundry basket. I want to add a lid and to make it a rectangular basket. I WILL rock this.

  C. At least 800 (or at least five) of these lovely hanging succulents for the “patio”/”dining room.”

There is much more to add, but let’s be honest, for me to even finish all the above in a year it would be impressive. I’m a lazy, disappointment of a person. But aren’t we all? Whatever.

In other news I will be in the 509 (basically the most [read least] happening place in all of WA) tomorrow and I am more than a little gitty with excitement. Seriously, being out of the office and up north kicking it with pretty much the best family on the planet is going to be totally awesome-sauce.

But let’s catch up some more soon. Like really. 

Hugs and heart shaped kisses. Love, your best friend.

P.S. I almost forgot! I joined twitter. It’s a travasty, I know, but please feel welcome to follow the crap out of me. @RyannMMoore

JUST a QUICKIE

I haven’t forgot about you, my dear, dear bloggy-friends.  It has just been one of those rough n’ tough, thank-god-for-two-buck-chuck kinda weeks, and therefore I have not been able to give this blog the tender love it deserves.

This also means that this has to be a super quick post — ugh sorry, I know it’s still really early in this blog’s lifetime to be having a short abandonment period, but I promise I will return shortly and with goodies!  Goodies=posts in this situation, in the case that it wasn’t obvious.

So in support of being real quick-like with this whole thing, let’s talk about someone else’s amazing project, shall we?

I am sure you are all familiar with The Brick House.  If you aren’t, I don’t know what is wrong with you, but you have a lot of catching up to do because it ranks up there with Manhattan Nest and Door Sixteen as far as amazing, kick-ass home improvement and interior design blogs go.  And if you don’t know who those other two are, you better just cancel all your plans for the weekend, because you MUST read them all, from like original post to most recent.  They represent everything that my cute little baby blog would like to be someday.  Anyway, The Brick House, who is like my idol when it comes to design and style, had a friend of hers sew this amazing cushy headboard thing, inspired by the dreamy Ace Hotel in Palm Springs.  (I haven’t ever been but would love to go — wink, wink, handsome husband of mine)

Anyway, read her post, read her whole blog, and stay-tuned for when I become a slimy copy cat that is totally going to make one of these myself.  Or at least attempt to.

Enjoy!
