  1. All great options! I might just have to make a batch of citronella candles; the mosquitoes this year are already apocalyptic! I had some outdoor projects to tackle, but we’ve got rain for the next 4 days.☹️ I guess we’ll have to give Pizza Friday a moody, cozy vibe. (Hello, candles and more wine.) Have a lovely, productive and balanced weekend!

    1. The mosquitos are already eating me alive… I feel like citronella candles alone, aren’t going to do it for me this summer. I might have to look into alternatives. Argh. We have rain in our forecast this weekend too, and I might have to steal your pizza, wine, candles, and cozy plan- that sounds absolutely ideal! Have a great weekend Peggi :)

  2. My project this weekend is to remove the final patch of country blue wallpaper that is behind the toilet in our hall bathroom. Then TRY SO HARD to get my husband to patch the drywall and texture so I can move on to painting and installing wainscoting. If B fails, then I will be learning how to do it myself.

    1. Woohooo!! You can do it! I actually am shooting a tutorial next week for finishing / patching drywall :) It’s really easy- I promise. If your husband won’t do it… you totally can. I do it all the time.

  3. You have THE BEST diys! I’ve already done like half of these but it’s always great to have them compiled in one post lol.

    1. Aw thank you!!! I can’t tell you how happy that makes me :)

  4. Love these ideas so much! I’m going to try the tie dye and large artwork this weekend! Thank you for the ideas!

    1. I’m so excited to hear that!!
