A couple weeks ago we posted about the design process for our new deck and today we’re talking about how we built it! Xan wrote this overview of the process, but because there’s so much to include it’s more an overview of the process and some tips and tricks we learned along the way. If you have specific questions feel free to include them in the comments. We should, of course, note that it’s important to talk to an expert in your area about your particular situation as it may be different from ours.
Happy Saturday! We skipped our Fourth of July post - we were busy getting ready for and hosting a party and spending time with friends and family. It was basically an extra long weekend and it was just what I needed. It included parties with friends, celebrations of babies, movie dates, and long naps. Perfection!
Hey there! Today I wanted to talk a little about gallery walls. For as long as we’ve been married we’ve had some sort of gallery wall. This hasn’t always been an intentional decision, but just the way things ended up. Our first apartment was a tiny little studio in San Francisco’s Marina district and there really weren’t many other places to put things. It was the perfect way to make a statement in such a small space. Our second apartment, in the Cole Valley neighborhood of San Francisco was palatial by San Francisco standards (1 bedroom, 800 square feet. #blessed), and while we had a bit more wall space, the living room got a lot of great light and we spent most of our time there and for some reason I was just dying to frame those french doors in a gallery wall.
