Obsessions: 05.11.18

I’m sure Robin and Michelle are obsessed with being in Greece, but you’ll have to settle with just me this week. Here’s what I’ve been thinking about in this week’s And Then We Tried Obsessions. 

Tie-Front Button Down Shirttie front shirt and then we tried obsessions

This shirt was an impulse purchase as I was perusing the Old Navy sale for a gift for my dad (the man needs new sweatshirts). I wore it to work this week paired with my trusty wedgie jeans and my huaraches and now I want one in every color imaginable. Part of me wants to wear this shirt with some high-waisted Bermuda shorts and Keds and pretend I’m attending Camp Kellerman (too weird?). I’m on the lookout for something similar in plain white so hmu if you know of anything!

Wet Saw

If you read the kitchen reveal this week then you know that I got a wet saw last weekend! Actually, I just wanted to rent one for the day but Zac pushed to buy one since it cost a little bit more. Thank goodness he suggested it because I never want to give this thing up. I’m really and truly obsessed with it. Who wants to let me tile their whole house? When it comes to keeping the tiles in a straight line, I’m not so great. But cutting tile? I’m your girl.

Now Reading

Some good articles I read this week since Michelle and Robin weren’t around for me to talk to:

Now Listening

I finally got around to listening to this month’s Hamildrop and I’m SO. INTO. IT. I listened to it for four straight hours yesterday.

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.

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!
