Our Target Project 62 Favorites

It seems like Target has been dropping a new line every month lately. You know we’re loving their new women’s line, A New Day, since several of their pieces showed up on our packing lists and Fall Fashion wishlists. They’ve been killing it with their new home goods release too. We checked out their huge new collection and pulled out our Project 62 favorites.

One of the first things we noticed was that a lot of the Project 62 line is made up of existing products from Threshold. Like this large gold mirror, which Hannah and I both have and bought about a year ago. Hannah is using this mirror over a console table in her front entry area and I have it hung up over one of the mid-century modern dressers I refinished.

Or this super simple and timeless(LOL) wall clock that Robin has had forever:

I love the range of products in the Project 62 line, both new ones and the ones snaked from old collections, and like that you don’t need to buy a whole new living room set to make some changes to your space.

These glass wine and whiskey decanters are so beautiful and putting things into prettier containers instantly makes it look like you have your life together. Sadly, my cat George is a pro at making it look like I don’t have my life together and insists on throwing all nice things onto the ground, and those wood ball stoppers would last about two minutes in my house. So if you don’t have a demon cat and can have nice things, send me a pic so I can live vicariously through you.

I’m obsessed with this double sconce and could see it flanking a headboard, like Robin’s DIY leather tufted headboard, or a tv to bring some modern brass flair to your space. Please enjoy this terrible photoshop so you can see them together in harmony:

Swapping out small accessories on bookshelves is an easy way to spice up a room. We’re loving these ceramic vases, both the short and tall versions. I’d mix these in on my pipe shelves because I like the handmade vase style contrasting with the industrial pipes. Target sells some pipe shelves here.

If you’ve been reading for a while, you know I’m obsessed with giant earrings. This brass wall hanging reminded me of a lot of the giant brass earrings Madewell has been selling recently.

DIY Opportunities

A few of our Project 62 favorites fell into the category of  “I bet I could make that.” Like this cotton wall hanging, which looks like it would be a simple enough follow-up project after you get your feet wet with our easy DIY rope art.

These watercolor prints jumped out at us as another great DIY opportunity. I liked how they combined simple geometry and watercolor. I have this lined up as something fun to try this week. If you’re overwhelmed by the idea of painting your own art, just remember to keep it simple, geometric, and abstract and use only a few colors and you should be all set!

Attaching a wood fence to a chainlink fence

As I mentioned in my last fence/gate update post, I helped Erika attach a wood fence to the chainlink fence in her backyard. The process was similar to when I converted a chainlink fence to a wood fence, except in this case, we left the chainlink fence intact. This method is a good option if you want to add a little more privacy to your yard or camouflage a chainlink fence while you wait to save up for a completely new fence.

You wanna know what we have been decidedly NOT obsessed with in the past month? The blog. Womp womp. We’re hopping back in this week, but we’ll be posting a bit more sporadically for a while. Here’s hoping you all loved getting caught up on Michelle’s driveway gate plans yesterday. See what else we’ve been obsessed with in this week’s And Then We Tried Obsessions.

Fence Updates and Two-Panel Wood Driveway Gate Plans

Hellooooo, I’m thinking about fences again! You all had the pleasure of following along as I moved and rebuilt the fence in my backyard and then converted a chainlink fence into a wood fence along my driveway, and now it’s finally time to build that driveway gate. Of course, I can’t just build a driveway gate and leave it at that, I’ve also decided to cap the entire fence to cover up the dogear pickets and give everything a cleaner and more finished look. HOORAY!
