Kitchen Desk Areas...

Why doesn't my planning desk look like this?  Where do these people put their "stuff"?  Shove it in the laundry room when they have company like perhaps I do?

On Line Magazines...

We're not a huge fan of on-line magazines.  I guess it's the " holding it in your hands" thing that we love about our magazines, but this Spring edition of Tradhome is worth a read.  Check it out this long weekend.  There's something for everyone.

Go HERE to begin...

Have a great long weekend, from the girls of in your back pocket.

What Jen's been up to...

Jen's been busy.  It was time for her adorable "tween" daughter to get her own room.  Jen decided to transform her office into a bedroom.  Not the biggest room, but perfect for Lauren and full of great natural light.  

Here's a quick peek at some inspiration and colors that the mother-daughter team are going with...
Side note: her daughter was done with pink!!

Here is a  peek of the bedding and headboard slipcover...


Here's a pic of the office when she began emptying out the closet, etc.  Notice the couch jetting out from middle of room-- that was to jugde where the bed would go.  We like to "Facetime" about those things...(Her poor kids, we make them hold the phone while we play around with furniture placement)

It's almost done!  Stay tuned!
Have a great day from the girls of in your back pocket.

Painted Patio Doors?

I'm thinking about painting the outside of my patio french doors.  Right now they're plain white--- scratched up by the dog--- and in need of a little TLC. 
 Here's what I'm thinking...
