Giving you a peek into the past week for me and Sonata Home Design. The week in review, my favorite finds on the web, and just a little “this and that.” I always want to give you great ideas, inspiration, creative motivation, light bulb moments, and a hearty “You can do it!”
I know I am not alone in my passion for home decorating, crafting, and nesting. So, please join me each week for this creative Saturday jolt!

Oh my goodness, I have so much to share with you, my friend!
Lots of projects!
I’m afraid this week’s photos are not of polished, finished projects.
Because everything is either in the “planning stage” or the “sledgehammer stage!”
This post needs some eye candy!
Well, as I was choosing photos, I noticed that a certain sheep-a-doodle dog had managed to position himself in most of the photos. (He is my buddy throughout the day!)
So, Sir Bentley is our eye candy this week!
First, I want to update you on the progress of my One Room Challenge half bath makeover!
One Room Challenge Update
Plan and prep has been the key phrase for the week!
If you have followed me for long, you know that I love to plan out a project’s tasks using sticky notes on a nearby wall.
Don’t worry…I have a very well-organized spreadsheet with all the detailed planning.
But that is not as fun as brightly colored sticky notes!
Sometimes I just on the stairs and stare at the sticky notes as I plan.
Time to finalize design decisions and get remaining items ordered.
Bentley must be ready to go outdoors!
The week was all about planning and ordering but I did get started with some small prep tasks like removing light switches, the towel hooks, the mirror, and the wall shelf.
Here is a little sneak peek at one of the sconces. The curve of the sconce is so elegant and the brushed gold is…chef’s kiss!
The wallpaper arrived!
Even though the wallpapering will not happen for a few weeks (planned for week 5 of the challenge!), I couldn’t help but unwrap one of the rolls.
This Spoonflower wallpaper is dramatic, abstract, and the perfect shade of green!
I promise I did not stage Bentley in this photo! He either loves decorating or is scheming out to sink his teeth into this wallpaper.
No chance, Bentley!
Hopefully, next week, I will have some completed half bath makeover tasks to show you!
Then There Is This Project…
On the other side of town lives my daughter and son-in-law in the cutest bungalow home in town.
Cutest…except for this deck!
It came with the house when they bought it and it has served up its time.
Even though aged and broken, the deck was actually very well constructed and it’s demolition seemed a massive task.
My daughter and husband each had a day off from work and decided to tackle the demo!
It took an entire day but between using crowbars, hammers, saws, and a big sledgehammer, they got the job done!
Ok, this might be the best photo of this post. What a great team! Way to go!
And This Project…
Back to our side of town…our patio is “on deck” for its demolition next week!
It is SO hard to wait!
This patio project is not a DIY for us…leaving this one to the professionals!
But I will take photos and keep you updated!
