I’ve been trying to do a ‘No Spend August’ as I’m a terrible impulse buyer and our little home is bursting at the seams. Yet it’s not even halfway through the month and I’ve already bought two new outdoor lights, a ceiling fan for the kitchen, and have about $60 worth of random stuff in my #amazon cart. . Do I *need* any of it? No. Do I NEED to de clutter and simplify my home? Absolutely yes. It’s just so much easier to shop than it is to get rid of stuff 😂 . If you have any tips for #decluttering and simplifying- hit me up! Because I’m the type of person who almost bought this dresser at the @maumeeantique mall just because it was so adorable, despite having no where to put it 🤷🏼♀️
I stopped into @valuevillage_thrift this morning for the first time in awhile, and after leaving $53 poorer- I remember why I stopped going weekly 😂 but seriously, how could I pass up a marble top table for FIVE DOLLARS?!? And mason jar lamps?! And a wooden bowl set?! And who knows what else 😂 . And now I’m the woman who sneaks thrift finds into the house while her boyfriend is in the shower so he doesn’t tell me we don’t need any more end tables (he’s probably right but pshh it was five dollars!!) . Who wants to see a #valuevillage #haul video? #meredithgoesthrifting
Got woken up at 5am this morning by the water meter hissing, air flowing into the toilet and absolutely no water in our pipes 👍🏻 half of our city is without water thanks to a water main break downtown. They have no idea when it’ll be fixed, but it could be 48 hours or more without water... so glad my @keurigcanada has a nice big water reservoir so I can at least have coffee 😳
Happy Friday! We’ve survived the week - high five 👏🏻👏🏻 we have a busy weekend with a wedding to attend, and then a bridal shower to attend, but all I really want to do is finish painting my cabinets and get them back up on the wall 🤷🏼♀️ I picked up this table in a Facebook bug & sell group for $40 with plans to paint it - but I can’t quite decide on a colour to choose, or if I should just restore the wood to its former glory (it has a lot of cracks and peeling in some spots!). What would you do with it?? • I can’t get enough of that bright pink rug, too. I love it so much that I have two 😍 . #thriftedhome #paintedfurniture #secondhand #pinkrug #crafttable #homedecor #cdnblogsquad
Even a few years later, I can’t get enough of my ‘I hope you dance’ lyric signs. I’ve always loved this song and as much of a labour of love as making these were (it’s a set of two!), I absolutely love how they turned out. • What’s your favourite piece of decor in your home? • #diyhomedecor #homedecor #bloggermade #cdnblogsquad #globes #decor #vintagedecor #farmhousedecor #farmhouse #diy
It’s 8pm on a Monday night and I am so ready for bed 😴 but I made it through my first (half) day of work in six weeks! if only I was heading to bed in a room as dreamy as @colleenpastoor made her master bedroom 😍 • I can’t get enough of her feed with gorgeous home decor and beautiful brush lettering. #cdnblogsquad
Spending the day painting kitchen cabinets from off white to pure white (left is before > right is after), cuddling puppies and trying to decide between McDonald’s or Dominoes for dinner so as to not ‘disturb the painting’ 🤔 I mean, I love me some dominoes but drive through means I don’t have to get changed out of my painting clothes... tough decision 😂 • How are you spending this beautiful day?
Obligatory ‘we spent the day in Toronto so I must instagram the CN Tower photo’ 🤷🏼♀️ got the all clear from my surgeon, bought some new dresses and ate some ramen. Until next time, #Toronto 👋🏻
Just killing some time in target before going for dinner - something I so miss doing since Target left Canada 😭 • While in target, I started planning (and buying for 😳) our basement Reno - even though it’s still gutted, and I haven’t finished the kitchen makeover yet 🙈 but I just couldn’t help it when I found the perfect botanical prints (on clearance!) and the rest of it just starting coming together with each aisle. • What area of your home are you working on next?
