I swear, summer makes me so forgetful. Must be all the extra sunshine and lazy days… I forgot to post a June roundup, so here goes, the top ten posts from June!
I beefed up a set of Billy bookcases in the bedroom and shared a tour of one of our favorite wine tasting spots: the Alexander Valley! A bench got a mod makeover, and the spotlight was on dine-in libraries.
I shared my two favorite sets of slipcovered furniture and how they’ve held up all these years, and also a tour of my childhood home. I have an incurable obsession with virtual makeovers, and the summer mantel got a little glitzy gold restyling. We hosted a sangria party and I shared the best mixed berry preserves recipe.
