Well Memorial Day weekend is here. I am so looking forward to it. I have some building to do, my office to finish and lots of book reading and relaxing to do. I am hoping to get some hiking in too!
While I do enjoy the fact it is a long weekend, I can’t forget that it is a day to remember those who gave their freedom up for us. My hearts go out to their families, I will be forever grateful. I also know that for the veterans who fought beside those men, it will be a tough day as well. My heart and hugs go out to you.
Favorite Quote: Learn to forgive and apologize, it makes for a shorter argument.
Favorite DIY Inspiration: A new media center/tv stand is on my list of things to make since the one I have doesn’t work. This would be perfect, though I don’t want it to be that tall. I’d want it to be longer and only half as tall. I think I need to work on a plan to build one. Love the sliding barn door part. It may be way out of my skill level but I want to try.
Favorite Bedroom: Why can’t this be my bedroom!!
I laughed too long and hard at this so I had to share it.
Seamus really can’t make this claim because he is truly a stinker, but my Dad’s dog can.
Also linking up with Natasha for 5 on Friday.
That bedroom is gorgeous. I love all of the reclaimed wood work. So naturally beautiful. Enjoy the long weekend!
I love exposed beams and details like that, I can see lots of reading and relaxing in a room like that one. Long term goals! Have a great weekend celebrating!

oh, that bedroom. sliding (barn) doors look amazing. a friend refinished 2 for his house and it looks so good!
I am swooning over the bedroom! I love them so much and they wouldn’t fit in with my house type, but I can take that piece with me so it’s perfect.

That poor cat LOL!! I hope you enjoy your long weekend and you get the relaxation that you deserve!! Side note – that entertainment center is totally calling your name! xo, Biana
Haha! He just bounced right off! I couldn’t stop laughing but the poor thing. Thank you. Hope it is the same for you! I so need to figure it out and take some measurements!

The bedroom and entertainment center are amazing!! I hope you figure out how to make it match what you want, it sounds like it’ll be perfect!! Definitely can’t forget what Memorial Day is all about, so thankful for the men and women that serve. That cat pic is hilarious and Boomer is a stinker too but some things definitely get blamed on him too! Happy Friday!!
I hope I can figure it out!! Haha!! Poor Boomer!

Love the wall unit and that bedroom! Your blog can be your vision board. Someday that bedroom will be yours! Enjoy the kick off of summer. Hope you easily and joyfully accomplish everything you need and want!
Love, SMD’s Momma
It will have to e for now. Dream bedroom goals! Hope you have a very relaxing weekend and get to spend it exactly as you wish!
SMD @ Life According to Steph says
I’d love a bedroom with a sitting area and fireplace.
So cozy, and perfect reading nook! A girl can dream at least!
I love that bedroom, so fantastic!! Hope you have a wonderful long weekend.
Isn’t it the perfect place to relax! So inviting. Have a great weekend!
I like that media center and bedroom. Both have a nice older-looking appearance.
Yes, I really love the rustic feel of them both! So cozy!
Rebecca Jo says
haha – that cat!!!
I love anything anti-inflammatory – plus, it sounds delish
My dad’s whole house is ‘barn’ related – I need to send him this entertainment center
The poor thing just bounced! Ha! I love watermelon so it sounds so good! Ohh yes, it sounds right up his alley then!
A Beautiful Mess did a sliding bar door and I think their tutorial was pretty good. You might be able to apply their tutorial to your media center idea. 🙂
Oh, I’ll have to check it out. Thanks!
oh my gosh that cat gif, i keep watching and i keep laughing.
that media centre thingy – oh my lord. gorgeous!
have a good memorial day weekend!
I couldn’t stop so I knew I had to include it, poor thing. I am hoping I can make it work and re-create something similar. Have a great memorial day weekend!
I love that media center!!!! Being that tall would certainly take over a room though, I see what you mean about wanting it half as tall. That bedroom is amazing, I want it to be mine too! I love wood beans on a ceiling. LOLOL at that GIF!!! Have a great weekend! Best wishes for the building of all the things 🙂
Yes, and I like to use it for my TV stand but also a mantle so I need the top to not be too high. The exposed beams are my favorite. Have a great long weekend!
Leeann @ Join the Gossip says
Ooh I’ll take that bedroom too please!
Happy three-day weekend 🙂
It’s just gorgeous, I really want to have one just like it some day. Have a great weekend!
I looooove that room! The ceiling! The fireplace!!!! *stars and hearts swirling around my head*
JC apparently has bad farts, but I’ve never smelled them – he always bombs Pete! lol
It’s so perfect! Would love something some day, a girl can dream. Haha! Poor Pete, Seamus has the worst farts!!

That DIY is gorgeous! I love the wood!
Thank you. I am hoping it comes out ok. Fingers crossed.
Girl I can’t wait to see how your tv stand turns out!! I’ll take that bedroom too! Gorgeous! Shane and I laughed at that poor cat! Hahaha!
Thanks. It is a work in progress!! I could totally live the heck out of that bedroom! Haha! Right?! Just bounced right off. Poor thing.
