May was a quick month. Like really quick! My grandfather is finally back to his normal activities and my grandmother is happy that he is out of the house again! He drives her crazy. Although, I think she drives him even crazier. Besides a few family fun events, we managed to get a few projects done around our home as well. We also purchased a camper and the family RV adventures are just starting at our new campsite for the summer. My husband, dad and I worked our butt’s off this past weekend demolishing one of the decks and rebuilding it. What a painful project but wow, it is looking good! More on that this week.
My stepdaughter’s created this fun DIY melted crayon wall art piece in the beginning of the month which looks fabulous in our study.
We added painted baskets to our foyer.
We completed our backyard flower bed makeover after a few weeks of prepping, cleaning and planting flowers. I love the accomplished feeling after completed a project like this. I won’t lie, the prepping and cleaning part is a drag but the finished product is always worth the work.
A fun project that I am super proud of is the DIY wall art I created in our study using ScotchBlue Painters Tape. The colors in this mural make the room so cheery and when the sun hits the wall, the colors look fabulous.
Here is another shot.
On the family fun front, we celebrated my grandmother’s 83rd birthday, mother’s day brunch and a fantastic Sunday afternoon together at Hibachi style restaurant. My grandparents thoroughly enjoyed the chef and his humorous demeanor. Check out the pictures, my grandfather’s expression says it all! It was a day for the memory book for sure 😉 May is over and onward with June! The summer projects at our campsite are just beginning and the deck makeovers (we have 3 to do!) as well as creating a DIY fire pit are top on the list.
