Where have I been?

When I logged in today I surprised myself by how long it has been since I had shared with you. Which is seriously not like me, most people who know me, know I am rarely, if ever quiet.

So in my defense, this is what has been hogging all of my internet trolling time lately...

I really just haven't been able to help myself, the eye candy on Pinterest is just so much....well....FUN!

For the most part I enjoy looking on Pinterest for home decorating and craft ideas, but why just stop there? So 16 Boards later I have definitely spent way too much time in "Pin Play" as I like to call it.

It's like a bag of potato chips, you can't have just one.

Oh heaven's, I will even admit to you as I am writing this post I am clicking back and forth between here and Pinterest, and look what I found...

My darling double wide may never look like this, but...

Maybe some day it could have a look somewhat like this

Be still my heart...those wash tub lights are fabulous!

Or I am determined to do this to my master bathroom door...

 I have several old windows hanging around in my house, so that would fit in nicely.

As we continue to spruce up our 25+ year-old double wide, I will definitely continue to browse thru Pinterest and the fun blogs I follow, or come across in the future for ideas and just pure enjoyment.

What fun ways do you search for inspiring ideas? Have you become a Pinterest junkie like me? I would love to hear so please do share.

and before I go, here is just a little update on my kitchen

I recently scored some beautiful engineered wood flooring (the snap and lock kind) from my nephew as he was renovating his house and I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to re-purpose that flooring. Now for the best part, it was FREE (love that word) especially when keeping to a slim renovation budget.
Kitchen updates so far...

... and now with the new flooring

The jury is still out on that center table/island.

I found it at a yard sale, cleaned it up a little, and have been living with it before I refurbish it. It doesn't look like it in the picture but it's a little big so I may have to keep searching for the perfect fit. I am determined to have a center island someday.

Since I didn't have enough flooring to include the laundry room, my plans are to find a tile, the Allure peel and stick vinyl plank flooring is looking very promising, it is durable and budget friendly. I have used it in the entry way of our home and it's great. The blog below has a post on using it in an RV, which has my curiosity piqued for using it in our RV as well.

Who knew, the possibilities are endless.

I will use a color similar in tones to the wood so that visually it will flow better to make the rooms feel bigger. It definitely warmed things up and since it is a floating floor much nicer to walk on than that boring old vinyl. So the transformation continues...

Thanks for stopping by and paying me a visit to day, my wish for you is that you have a fabulously blessed day.
