Modern tiles

One of the next house projects on my list is to tile the backsplash in my kitchen, and soon thereafter my first floor powder room. As soon as my summer slows down and I have a weekend to spare I will start the project.

In the search for the perfect tile, I found a bunch of modern tile ideas that I like. My space isn’t that large so I need to keep it pretty simple. I narrowed it down to a medium sized matte white rectangular tile with a medium-light gray grout. Until they are delivered I will be watching numerous YouTube videos on how to do-it-yourself. Stay tuned for the before and after!

So until the big reveal, here is some of my favorites!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Modern Beanbags

About a year ago I participated in a Kickstarter project called Modern Cornhole by Red, Wood & Blue. I get why they included a set of red and blue bean bags with their AWESOME molded plywood cornhole boards…but because I am the way that I am…I decided to make beanbags that match my interior decor. :)

Cue the crazy.

Don’t get me wrong, I will hold onto the red and blue beanbags…and bring them out for Fourth of July. But in the meantime, I need something that blends with my decor. And because I love collecting cute fabrics, I happen to have two shades of gray (printed wood grain) fabric that were PERFECT for these replacement beanbags.

I know Red, Wood & Blue thought deeply about their beanbags…the size, the weight, the type of corn they used…but I just winged it for mine.

I measured the provided bean bags, added on a 1/4″ to each side, and cut 4 pieces of each color fabric. Then with the right sides facing, I sewed a 1/4″ seam along 3 sides. Turned them right side out, filled them with corn (to approximately weigh the same as the existing ones) and then sewed them shut.

I will continue to play modern cornhole from my kitchen, or from my couch, with none other than my GRAY beanbags. :)
