Project Dreams

Major improvements both inside and out have taken a bit of a back seat this past week to cooking, cleaning, and well...life. It has however, given us a chance to ponder the living room, the arrangement of all the pieces of furniture that have been accumulated, and how we can fit a dining table in there, thus beginning new projects.

We all know I have a thing for chairs, and at some point I will get my hands on the ones sitting in the kitchen area. Maybe something a little like this I stumbled up on Design Sponge:

{cute!}

Mary passed along some backyard projects from Sunset that were exactly what we had been talking about. SOMEDAY when we are done rebuilding the shed, putting on a new roof, and planting our edible front yard we'll start to think about the deck we are going to construct off the back door. It will most definitely include this shower, built off of our rain tank for an au-natural shower, in more ways than one....

And if the whole front yard being transformed into our personal produce stand isn't quite enough, lets include these modern wall planters to add some space and spruce up that shed we will have finished.

But for now we'll leave those on our inspiration board, we've got sinks to unclog and mosquitoes to kill.

LOVE all the ideas!! Did the wall planters come from Sunset also? As you know we have a terrible problem with plants in our ground from the gophers, moles & DOGS!! It's got to be pots or planters on the fence! OR, of course native plants like the ones Kelly picked for part of our backyard! Many thanks for those picks Kel!!
