I am almost glad to go back to work since I need a break from all the projects! I did get a lot done and the Food Truck festival was amazing! It really need to be every weekend though so I can try everything. I’ll be going into more detail of the bedroom projects and how I did them but for now I am sharing the previews. Hope you love it as much I am loving it.
Friday: I decided to get some shopping done since I needed to find a mug for my mug exchange partner. I also needed some new shoes for work so I went to DSW but in place of black flats I found these amazing boots that I have been drooling over forever after seeing a similar design last year! I then hit Lowe’s for some supplies for my bedroom makeover furniture supplies.
I put the final coat of stain on the bench pieces and then the night was spent reading. I was exhausted so it was an early night.
Sunday: A little reading with my new mug before putting the bench together. After setting the wood glue I needed to head back to Lowe’s for some more spray paint, and then to the grocery store. I screwed the tops to the bar stools and then sprayed them. Back to the bench to add some screws for added strength to the legs. Then it was just a matter of putting it all together. Once the stools were dry I scuffed them up with some brown paint and sandpaper. A few accent pieces for the table and DONE!!!
What were you up to this weekend?

Fantastic job on the bench and the entire room makeover!
We had a food truck festival on the night of the Harvest Moon. It’s funny that they’re so popular now…have you seen the movie, Chef? Love Roxy’s..their grilled cheese with sweet potato is delicious!
Super cute boots…one of my favorite parts of Fall, for sure.
Have a great week, Kerry!
Thank you so much! I haven’t seen Chef yet, but it is on my lift. I think I would love to have a food truck. The food was delicious but they were very friendly too. Love wearing boots in the Fall, I actually wore them to the festival and they were very comfortable. Hope you have a great week!

Your bench looks amazing – such a great job!!! I saw all your insagram photos from the food truck festival and you had me drooling all day! I seriously hope those boots came home with you – so cute!!! Happy Monday girl! xo
Thank you. I am in love with it. Those boots came home and I wore them to the festival, so comfy.

what a busy weekend and i LOVE that you DIY’d that baby. i would have called my husband to do that shizz because i’m too lazy.
when we decided to paint our house, we thought about doing it ourselves to save $$ but the thought of doing ALL THE TRIMS made me cry so we hired someone to do it.
Haha! It was easier than I thought but still a lot of work. I totally skipped the trim when I painted and I regret it now since I have to do them all. So not fun!
Your bedroom looks so COZY. Before reading, I thought you must have gone to stay in a fancy B&B! Great job girlie. I love food trucks too. I wanted to start one of my own once upon a moon 😉
Thank you. It felt so decadent but it was really pretty inexpensive. Wouldn’t that be an awesome job! I so wouldn’t mine owning a food truck.
That bench is beautiful!
Thank you so much! It was a labor of love.
SMD @ Life According to Steph says
You totally got it in this weekend! Good for you!
Your bench looks phenomenal, as does all the food.
Thank you. I am totally exhausted and spent today but it was totally worth it.
Linda Sheridan says
The food looks divine! Awesome job on your bedroom makeover. #serenitynow
So great that you take on these projects and they turn out perfect!
Have a beautiful week!
Love SMD’s Momma
Thank you. Yes, it feels so much more peaceful and lighter in the room. Thank you. There were for sure some bumps in the road but I will share them so hopefully others don’t have to suffer. 🙂
I really want to eat something from The Bacon Truck, I LOVE bacon.
I saw your room pictures on IG and I was sooooooo impressed, you did an awesome job! I always think of projects (like a hall tree) but never do them. I should really try something already!
That line was just as long as the Roxy truck and i really wanted to eat from them but I have been Twitter stalking Roxy’s so I had to go. Next time the Bacon Truck is mine! Haha!
Yes, there is no harm in trying. It really was pretty inexpensive to make and it really added a great element. I get nervous with large projects but this wasn’t so bad.
I love food truck ralleys! That reminds me I need to go to one 🙂
They really need to have them every week so I can sample them all. Haha!
I love the way your bedroom projects came together. Looks very nice! And we had a food truck festival here, but we didn’t find out about it until the very last night so we didn’t get to go. I’m making sure I don’t miss it next time 🙂
Thank you so much. It was so close to how I envisioned it. So glad it worked. Ohh you must, I follow them on twitter so I know when they are going to be local. 😉
Love those boots! The new bedroom setup looks so pretty and cozy! Great job pulling that together! I’m very far from being that handy especially with wood work. lol
Thank you. I was so nervous about it, but I figured it was just a bunch of wood and screw. Lowe’s and Home Depot cut the boards for you. Win-win!
Your bedroom looks amazing! It’s so pretty. Love the stools. I totally missed the food truck festival, I forgot all about it. Love the Woo (pie) wagon.
Thank you so much! It was so much fun and a lot bigger than I thought it was going to be. I hope to try them soon, they looked amazing.
The food looks/sounds amazing!!! Yay for food trucks!!!!
I am in love with your furniture! Everything looks like it turned out so great! Now come do mine 😉 I can pay you in food truck food…
It was so good. Now if only they had it every week.
Thank you. I was so happy with how it came out. Now that sounds like a good deal! 😉
damn girl you were productive!! i love the bench and the stools, so awesome! i have to repaint the trim in my house, its all scuffed and the previous owners gave zero shits when painting so they really need to be redone. but i keep putting it off, lol
Haha! Thank you. I am feeling the effects of that productivity today! Ugh, the trim is so tedious but mine are so gross and scuffed too. We must do it!!
What a great weekend! Your bedroom looks amazing!!!
Thank you. I was really proud with how it came out.

First of all, I LOVE YOUR BEDROOM!!!
Okay, haha I am so jealous of people who go to these food truck things. I have never been! We have them often here in Jax but I somehow always have plans. I find out about it much too late. I need to start looking for the next day more in advance because this all looks so amazing!!!
Thank you so much! This was my first time and although it was a little expensive to try and hit more than one or two it was so worth it. You really should try and make it to one. So yum!
Sarita @ it's a girl's world says
First of all, can I just say your bedroom looks so clean!? And looove food trucks!!! A festival of food trucks?! Sign me up!
Thank you! I am sure it won’t last! There were so many options and trucks. I want to try them all.
Great bench! You are so handy!
I love Roxy’s grilled cheese. SO so good!
Thank you. I didn’t feel handy, but glad it came out how I wanted it too. Roxy’s was so good, such a great combo of flavors.
Leeann @ Join the Gossip says
I don’t know how you do it. You’re always on the go! You got so much accomplished and I’m loving the bedroom. I have a slight obsession with lanterns and the one on the stand looks like one I have. Great taste 😉 lol
Thanks for linking up for MMG!
Thank you! Trust me from the end of it I was exhausted! They are from Target, I may have a few sprinkled through my house. Great taste! 😉
I’m so jealous of your food truck extravaganza. Especially the grilled cheese one after my Nashville experience, haha! God I love DSW!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was so good and so many options. I wish I got to try a few more. DSW had so many cute shoes this time around it was hard to say no!
Lynsey @ Eternally Wanderlyn says
I love the way your room turned out! You did such a great job. 🙂 We also have several food truck festivals around here and I love them. The food is just sooo good.
Thank you, I am so in love with how it turned out. It is so good, I wish they had them more often around me. They have them in Boston but that is a hike for me, when my weekends are packed.
I got new boots over the weekend too and will wear them tonight! Love your find!
Can’t wait to see them! Tonight will be so fun!
Your bedroom looks so good! I love what you did for side tables!
Thanks! I had to think quick since the old ones wouldn’t fit!
Krystal R says
What a great weekend! That food looked absolutely yummy!
They really need to be there every weekend so I can sample it all, it’s only fair.
