High Five For Friday: The Pinterest Project Edition

High Five For Friday: The Pinterest Project Edition

1. My Occasional Table
I’ve had my eye on Ikea’s “Occasional Table” for a long time. Now that I finally decided to buy one, I found out that they no longer make them. What is up with that? Well, I had this burning need for one, so I made myself one. I used a gel stain for the first time and I wasn’t crazy about it. I had a hard time spreading it thinly, but I’m happy with the overall project. It’s not perfect, but it works.IMG_6317

2. Miles Time
Yesterday I spent the majority of the day with my nephew. Isn’t he the cutest? He’s honestly the happiest baby on the planet.


3. Summer in D.C.
Ivan got an internship offer at the Pentagon. He’s not positive that he’s going to take it, but we’re pretty sure. It is the pentagon after all. If he goes, I’m going to go. I’m a graphic designer and my boss will let me work from D.C. I’m pretty excited about the idea, I think 3 months in the Capitol will be a ton of fun. One of my best friends from high school lives there, so that will be nice to see more of her.

4. I’ve Been Getting My Workout On
Ivan’s been in Texas since Tuesday, so I’ve had some free time. I’ve been trying to get as many workouts in as possible. I’ve been somewhat successful and it feels great. I really need to make more time for working out on a regular basis.

5. My Etsy Purchase
I found this fun way of storing ties on pinterest and decided I HAD to find a pop crate. I found one that a local etsy seller had listed and was able to pick it up. Because I didn’t have to pay shipping it only set me back $30. They are listed for $75 online. Yikes.

Fitting It All In for Five Things

  • sounds like you had a GREAT week! i love that table you made for your bedroom. i use old dr. pepper crates for holding what little dvds i have left. they fit perfectly.

  • I love that pop crate and what a great deal with finding a local etsy center. D.C. can be such an exciting place to be. There is just so much to do and see. If it works out, I hope you enjoy it.

  • Ohh going to DC for the summer would be amazing! It really is a pretty place in the spring and summer. Love that tie idea too! My other half has tons of ties so this would be pretty cool for him!


    • I went to D.C. for the first time in November and loved it. My friend who lives there said Spring was her favorite. So hopefully some of that wonderful weather will hold out until Mid-May when we get there!

  • So impressed with your occasional table!

    • Thanks! It was a challenge. It seemed simple enough, but I messed up with the brackets. Oh well. I fixed it and it works now :)

  • Awesome job on the table! I’m that same exact way. Once I make up my mind that I want something, I need it right then and there. Love how it looks at the end of your bed!

    • Thanks! I was telling my dad about what I wanted to do and he told me he’d help… but I couldn’t wait. I had to make it myself. I am the worsts most impatient person.

  • Jan

    Great job on the table! <3 And yes, your nephew is soooo cute!


  • Such a fun and great crate idea! I love that fun project! Hope you had a great weekend!

  • I hate when stuff sells out before I make up my mind to buy, but I think yours turned out great! And how fun would DC be for 3 months?!

    Thanks for linking up with us for H54F!
