Heellluuuurrrrrr to you!!!!
I hope you had a great weekend!
I know for some it was the last weekend of the summer and I hope you enjoyed it.
We have one more week left and it is going to be a busy one!
I also hope my friends and family on the East Coast stayed safe from the path of Irene.
If you have followed me for a while you know the love affair I have for plank walls.
If I could, I would plank my entire house!!
BUT I HEART THEM SO MUCH!!
Just look at how beautiful they are!!
They just make me ooohhh and aahhhhh!!!!
Look, you can even do a plank by your plank walls!!
Hardy har har!!
Sorry about that. :)
Anyway where was I?
Oh, for my sons room I wanted to do something on one of his walls to make it feel beachy and cottagey.
I took inspiration from this photo on Pinterest.
And I came up with this.
I used 1 x 10's that were 6 feet long.
I nailed them to the wall and then took 1 x 2's and made the vertical pieces.
For whatever reason I didn't take photos of the process.
I really loved how it turned out and even found a spot for the driftwood shark.
Speaking of yummy plank walls,
my dear friend Sandra from Frugal French Girl went to visit her niece to help her redo her kitchen and they were offered this beautiful barn wood to make whatever their hearts desired!
This is what they came up with!
Talk about barnwood/plank wall jealousy!!!
To see how the whole kitchen turned out, just go here!
While you are there you have to take a look around at her amazing talent!
Sandra is the sweetest, she can write, she can build, she can decorate and most of all she is such an amazing kindred and friend.
This is her canopy that she built in her gorgeous beachy bedroom!!!

I will be a bit MIA this week.
We are getting ready for school and I have to work extra this week due to the Holiday. The restaurant that I work at is in a resort town so we are planning on being a tad more busy....fingers crossed. :)
Hopefully after school starts I can get back to regular blogs because there is a room that I need to show you! :)
***sorry I posted this again, when I originally posted it it posted with a date of 8/17 I think.
