The Best Pre-Summer Sale You Won’t Want to Miss!

EEK we are so close to summer y’all! With Memorial Day weekend celebrations, warm weather, bare feet, and fireflies at night, I can barely take the anticipation! Yet, even though I love this season so much, I am definitely a “Fall wardrobe” kind of girl – meaning my closet is bursting with sweaters and skinny jeans, but not necessarily summer wedges, shorts, and dresses. Thankfully, Nordstrom is having an AMAZING sale right now through June 4 that helps anyone stock up on summer essentials, AND snag a great Father’s Day gift!

After stocking up my shopping cart, and my wish list, I thought I would share with y’all my top selections ¬†from this sale! (Click any image to shop!)

  • This first dress I am obsessed with! Off-the-shoulder is a huge trend right now and these colors are gorgeous on any and every skin tone.
  • This second dress, the One-Shoulder Ruffle by BP is equally fun and flattering and¬†is a total steal for less than $30!

  • First, this flowy Lush tunic is perfect for even the most humid of summer days – comfortable, breezy, and flattering – I’m in love.
  • Another major¬†trend this season is the cold shoulder look! This featured¬†Lush Cold Shoulder Top¬† (less than $22!) is one I love. It shows enough skin¬†to enjoy the summery season, yet is totally appropriate for a variety of settings and events.
  • Last but not least,¬†Satin yes please – ¬†gimme all of it! Sometimes it’s way too hot in the evening for a normal cardigan but you just want something on your arms, and this Hinge Satin Kimono Jacket is perfect for exactly that (seriously counting down the seconds till mine arrives).

I am constantly updating and restyling the¬†DIY Marble and Gold Ikea Hyllis Shelves¬†¬†& love how versatile they’ve been in this space.¬†One of my favorite things to do when seasons change is to¬†move furniture and decor around to freshen up the room. Since I spend the majority (only 98%) of my day¬†in my home office, that’s usually the place that gets the spring treatment first ūüôā

 

Do you have any favorite traditions for the start of Spring and Summer seasons? I would love to hear them!

Easy DIY Bulletin Board

Lately, I’ve been a bit amazed at how much “extra” we have in the way of home decor pieces. One particular category of which is frames. I didn’t realize until we started the packing process, before our move this past summer (more on that here & here), how many extra frames we had stored. The two featured below are such good (and semi-embarrassing) examples. Both of these were purchased my junior year of undergrad at Michael’s, yet neither were ever hung. I loved the shape and style of them too much though to get rid of them, so they have survived not one, but now three moves (hence the blue tape protecting the glass) without ever being used.

Well, taste and style preferences change, and mine certainly have since my junior year at Carolina. I didn’t want to waste these frames though, so instead I decided to make one into a gold cheetah¬†bulletin board, and the other into a matching frame for my favorite Charlotte print.

For this project you’ll need the following supplies:

1 yard of your choice fabric (I used metallic cheetah in gold)

Spray Paint & Grip

Cork Board Roll & Scissors

Staple Gun

*If you don’t have any extra frames available, you can skip the spray paint portion by snagging one already in the style/color you like. I’ve linked some similar ones here &¬†here.

Step 1:¬†Remove the cardboard backing and glass from the frame. Don’t throw away the backing, we will be using it in a later step. Also, when you lift up the little tabs, try to keep them from touching any part of the frame (other than where they’re connected of course). This will help prevent them from sticking to the frame when its spray painted.

Step 2:¬†In a well-ventilated area, preferably outside, begin spraying your frame with the first coat of paint. Use smooth even strokes, covering the entire outer piece. Allow this first layer to set completely before spraying again. You may need be extra patient if your frame is plastic, as it takes a few extra rounds for the paint to appear as though it’s adhering to the piece. (One of the reasons I chose to use the chalk spray paint was that I hoped it would make these plastic frames look like wood – it totally worked!)

Step 3:¬†Once your desired coverage is reached, set aside¬†the frame to fully dry. It’s time to grab¬†your frame’s cardboard backing and cork board roll! Unroll the cork board, and line it up with the cardboard backing. Be sure to keep it taut and flat. Cut the cork to fit your¬†backing.

Step 4:¬†Using your staple gun, staple down the edges of the cork to the cardboard backing.¬†(As you can see, my backing needed extra strips of cork board, so it looks a little messy, but the fabric will cover this so don’t worry if yours looks similar to mine at this point in the project.)

Step 5: Get out your fabric, and lay the backing cork-side down. Cut the fabric to fit, leaving extra along the edges so that you can fold it down on the back. *Depending on how wrinkly your fabric is, you may want to steam it before securing it to the cork board.

Step 6:¬†Grab your staple gun¬†again and gently staple the edges of the fabric down to the cardboard side¬†of the ¬†frame backing. Take your time with this step so that you don’t end up with a massive crinkle down the middle of your new cork board.

Step 7:¬†Flip it back over, and check to make sure everything is smooth and secure. Now you’re ready to put your new¬†bulletin board into your freshly painted frame!

Step 8:¬†All you have to do now is figure out where you want it displayed ūüôā I put mine in my home office. I’m a huge fan of symmetry in interior design so both frames are to the right and left of the main window in this space.
