For the Love of Ship Lap

Hello everyone!

How is your week going so far?  Mine has been very busy since my youngest son is getting ready to start high school next week.  He had freshman orientation today.  I must brag on our school system.  We would've probably moved this year or next, if it wasn't for our great school system.  But since he only has 4 more years to go, we decided to keep him where he is.  His new high school is very nice and besides offering him an IEP (which is a custom plan for any student that requires extra help with certain subjects) they even offered all freshman a mentor to help them out their first year!  Wow!  I certainly didn't get anything close to that when I was in school.  My youngest son is slightly autistic so he really benefits from all this extra help!  Our school system is ranked 5th in the state of GA.  So, our new house can just wait a few more years.  Ha!

In the meantime, we are always working on our current home to add value and make it more appealing to us.  One way we are planning on doing that is by adding some ship lap to some of our walls.  There is one room where we plan on adding an accent wall of ship lap to first.  Then, depending on how well we like it and how easy (or not) that it is to install, we may do our breakfast area in the kitchen. 

Here are some inspiration pics of what we like:

Inspiration That I've Been Following

Hello everyone!

I have been in a "summer" state of mind lately, and as a result, have been decorating with lighter softer colors.  There is so much great inspiration out there to see that has helped guide me in the direction I'm going. Of course, this is what I'm enjoying now.  It's all subject to change!  Ha Ha!
