Five On Friday

It's time for another edition of Five on Friday and I do hope you'll join along!

Remember, all you have to do is post about five things on your mind, add our logo (found at the bottom of this post), and join the party using the linky tools below. Easy, and a great way to find new blogs and be found. :)

We are doing a small screened porch update. We previously had cafe lights strung around the perimeter of the screened porch, but we have both been wanting curtains in the room. We tackled this in a major DIY way and got pretty creative. It's 50% done but you know I'll share photos when the curtains are hung! These are some of the photos of outdoor areas we love.


Make Drop Cloth Curtains for Outdoor Spaces and Porches.  Rather than cutting excess and hemming that side, this crafter folded the excess over as a valance.

Drop cloth curtains: I have a total of 5 of these curtains on my patio! The drop cloths were less than 10 dollars a piece at Home Depot. (Remember, Home Depot drop cloths do NOT have seams down the middle, Lowe’s drop cloths do.) Here’s a run down of the price of my patio curtains: 5 drop cloths -$50.00 5 sets of ring clips – $25.00 metal poles – $10.00 hooks – $6.00 primer and paint $6.00 Grand Total: $97.00

My cousin gets married this weekend, and I can't WAIT! I absolutely love weddings, and this one will be a really great family get-together. And being that the bride and groom are very relaxed and can appreciate this strong summer heat, they have asked for casual wear ... sundresses for ladies and shorts for men. Score.

I had a really fun evening with girlfriends on Wednesday night at Bunco! We also played Left Right Center which is a quick, easy, and fun dice game. Oh, and the winner wins a whole pot o' cash. You can pick it up cheaply on Amazon (here). Lots of fun, if you are looking for a new game to play with friends.

I recently saved this on my Pinterest "Craft Ideas" board ... a great article comparing gold spray paint!

Lastly, about those crazy life changes ... today is my final day of work. Makes me so nervous, but I have faith that this is the right move for our family. I received some really wonderful personal emails -- thank you (you know who you are). And I absolutely can't wait to jump into my new role and treat it like a job. My dream job! So with that said, cheers to new beginnings!

  25. I so want to add curtains to our back porch but, it doesn't get much of a breeze (b/c of how it sits) so, I don't feel like it would be "smart" to add them. But, I love the way they look - can't wait to see y'alls! So awesome that the wedding this weekend calls for casual attire!! Score for the bride & groom!! & Saving that article about spray paints! THanks for sharing! Hope your Friday was great!!
