This is going to be short, sweet and to the point. Work has been crazy + DIY projects around the house are at an all time high = no time for posting In order to keep ourselves motivated Andy and I have set a deadline for 5/13/11 to finish our outdoor fire pit. In addition I have decided that we need to make our guest room/guest bathroom a little more inviting before our out of town guests stay that weekend. Then there is always my current wood shop project. Needless to say we are over ambitious as always and I will be knee deep in quick set and stack stone by 6 p.m. this evening in order to stay on track.
Here is a progress shot of Andy working on our outdoor firepit, notice the poor tree stump in the background from this post:
A little bit of the stack stoning process, Check out this corner Andy and I worked on together:
Now inside, how much help does this bathroom need ?!?!
Test rug… It is hard to tell in these photos, but I am trying to bring out the light bluish green in the ceramic tiles. Here is my $7 Homegoods (wanna be Restoration Hardware) Bath Mat:
Now testing paint samples…both failed, back to home depot!
On other notes, our outdoor fence + succulents are really starting to look awesome from our last post here:

Here is a little creation of mine, hypertufa pot + succulents, trying to mimic the succulent pots I saw at the nursery I posted about here:

As you can see a lot is going on around here! This post has become sort of a smorgasbord of all projects 1508. Hopefully by the weekend of 5/13 we will wrap up the bulk of these projects so we can enjoy the garden and our guests and take a much needed DIY hiatus!
Andy is off to a bachelor party this weekend which will hopefully get me motivated to keep posting away and working on the bathroom decorations
Until next time…
