March Month in Review

Helloooooo April!

I feel like our March here was buried in construction dust and unexpected bills from the bathroom makeover. It was not a blog heavy month just because I was so busy with all the projects we are doing. If I have nothing to share I don’t want to force a post just for the sake of blogging. You guys!!  You guys!!  April is going to explode with content. All that stuff I have been working on…well, let’s just say you are going to get a lot this next month. Funny how things go.

I love doing these monthly recaps because I find it nice to see the content from the month. A little something for everyone from DIY to design, inspiration and shopping a look. Let’s get to it!

Bliss at Home March Monthly Recap

DIY PROJECTS

At the end of February, I revealed our new bedroom. The first thing in March I shared is how I made this faux alligator tray table that we use as a nightstand.

I also shared the bathroom progress report highlighting the ups and downs of this DIY remodel and why it is taking so bloody long!

With the reveal of our bathroom remodel coming up in a few days, I took a moment to share the images that have inspired and helped me in the decision process.

COMING IN APRIL

The bathroom remodel is going to start off our April. I can’t wait to share all the goodness that went into it! There are a lot of DIY projects, amazing products, and design ideas that went into the space and I finally get to share it. It is by far my favorite project of the year so far.

I also have a few collaborations that I can’t wait to spill the beans on. One of them is so near and dear to my heart and this blog.

I wish you all a happy April. I am wondering how many April Fools’ Day  posts are going up today. I just can’t do it. No fooling on the bathroom, I promise!

I am knocking off early this week since my kiddos don’t have school on Friday and it’s Easter weekend. See you bright and early on Monday!

February Month in Review

A round-up of our February 2015 projects and posts

Hello,  March!

We got hit with ice this morning over the snow. Winter is definitely going out with a bang around here. I know us Northerners are all dreaming of spring and I am already scheming ways to bring happy, sunny vibes into our home…even if the weather says otherwise. February always flies by; the loss of those few extra days really does make a difference. Today, I am sharing our February in Review. I love doing these recaps to celebrate the month we had and to give a glimpse at the things to come here on B@H. With so many larger projects going on behind the scenes and some traveling, February was not heavy in the reveal posts but had some good stuff going on all the same!

PROJECTS

Every year, I do a big Valentine’s Day dinner party here at Chez Bliss and this year’s tablescape is one of my favorites to date.

BH TRAVELS

I had the pleasure of spending a few days in NYC to see the unveiling of a new collaboration between Legrand and Hubbardton Forge.

COMING THIS MONTH

March is going to be an exciting month around here. I have a few collaborations that I will get to share that I can’t wait for you guys to see. Our bathroom is finally coming along. After fixing our subfloor issues, we discovered a whole new set of problems behind the walls with the plumbing. Needless to say, it pushed our finish date. The joy of remodeling an old house. There are always issues.  I am happy to report that we hired a plumber and we are now once again working hard to finish it.

January Month in Review

bliss-at-home-month-in-review-january

Happy February, everyone!

January was a busy month as we have been working on several projects for 2015. I enjoy doing these Month in Review posts because it is nice to have all the posts from the month in one organized recap. This way you can easily revisit something, see all the posts from a series, or catch up if you missed one. Here’s our January Month in Review and it is full of design and some DIY you can tackle on any given weekend.

DIY PROJECTS

My office space had to be moved again due to the remodeling going on around here. This simple DIY was the jumping off point for my new workspace and a bedroom refresh.

Our DIY library wall is one of my favorite projects we have finished in our home and it got taken up a notch with some beautiful grasscloth and a little help from Walls Republic.

DESIGN PROJECTS

We have quite a few design projects going on right now. Even some I haven’t shared yet! I shared the design process of our bedroom refresh in a series the month of January. I’m just waiting on one more thing to arrive and we can photograph it and share the reveal soon! I just love the way it is coming together.

One very large project we have been tackling this month is our bathroom makeover. This is a complete gut and remodel project. We haven’t been sharing the process on the blog and we are saving all the details for the big reveal. There is a lot going on behind the scenes on this one and it is the design project that I am most excited about so far in 2015! We did share the design plans so you could get an idea of what we have been doing around here. You can get some behind the scenes teasers on our Instagram too.

We were snowed in yesterday and enjoyed a family day at home. Anyone else in the same boat? We got a foot of snow and it was blustery, so school was cancelled and Dave couldn’t commute to work. It’s coming your way East Coast friends! Stay warm!!

B@H Monthly || June

Oh, summer feels like it is here! I am loving the weather in Connecticut. It is not as humid as back home. So, when it is in the 80’s it still feels lovely out! I am really falling in love with New England!! I have been pretty spoiled here in our summer rental with a pool and gym to use whenever I want. With the 4th this Friday, I feel like this will be the most memorable one for my family. We are headed to Mystic for our Independence Day celebrations.

Today, is recap day! So, today’s post is filled with the best of our June and what’s coming up for July. Every month, I like to highlight all the projects, plans, decor and happenings around here. Thanks for joining me on all our design and DIY adventures! In the immortal words of Fergie-Ferg, let’s get it started in here!

It’s almost a week late, but today I am sharing the Best of April. Each month, I like to highlight all the projects, decor, plans, and happenings. I thank each and every single one of you for making this blogging journey a joy and joining me on all my designing and DIY adventures.

Before we get started, I would love some prayers and well wishes for my oldest son, Bman. He just broke his arm and dislocated his shoulder and he is in a lot of pain. Because of where he broke it, they couldn’t do much in the ER so we going to a specialist first thing this morning. He is so bummed that he can’t play outside with his friends, so we are hoping for a speedy recovery with summer just around the corner!
