I'm Hoping on the Color Blocking Craze!

Before I jump in to the awesome color blocking craze hitting the nation, I have to talk about the possible elephant in the "blog". I know most bloggers are posting fall decor inspiration posts right now, so I'm sorry if this isn't one of those...I just can't let go of summer just yet! Summer is my favorite time of year and if you have ever lived in the west, particularly in Alberta and Saskatchewan area, YOU KNOW that summer is maybe 6-8 weeks long -if that! We had some glorious weather during our stay-cation this year, but before that it was constant cool temps and rain. The morning I first starting writing this blog post it was 6 degrees when I woke up!! Fall is definitely on the way, but I HAVE to wait until the very end of August (for my mental health lol) to start decorating or posting about fall. How about you?? Tell me below in the comments about your feeling concerning summer/fall. If you are desperately craving fall then I'll link some posts from previous years for you here and here.

Alright...now to talk about what you're REALLY here for...COLOR BLOCKING clap-clap-clap. Do you ever get that itching, desperate urge to DIY something, or is it just me? I was looking at my kitchen stools which I recently painted from black to white (in February I think) and thought, "These need a little touch of something!" So I decided to use a little leftover paint I had on hand from our board and batten wall treatment this spring -Grey Owl by Benjamin Moore, and add a color blocking detail to the feet. Or, as my husband calls them: socks for stools hahaha. He's cute ;)
