Friday Favorites {01}

If you’ve been following the blog for a while you may remember The Friday 5.

Well, it’s back, but with a new name – and since Fridays are supposed to be laid back, we’re going to keep the posts that way as well.

They won’t happen every Friday, and some lists will be random while others are more structured, but it will always be a post about things that we think you might be inspired by or find helpful, informative, or fun.

Here we go…

1. Shiplap.

A new year always brings with it much speculation on what trends will and won’t stick around for the year, and the rumor is that some are completely over shiplap,  while others still can’t get enough of it and are using it in unique ways.

Like the way Jonathan Raith & Co. created this unique shower wall treatment by cutting Corian strips to mimic a shiplap look. Pretty clever.

Where are you at with shiplap? Keep it going, or make it go away?

2. Selling your home.

If asked, most of us would probably say that Spring is prime time for selling your home, but did you know that February might really be the time to put it on the market?

I didn’t either, until I interviewed realtor Aaron Ouska for the post “15 Tips That Will Help You Sell Your Home“. Good information and ideas.

3. Dining – Industrial Style

If you follow us on Instagram, or you saw our wallpaper inspiration post, you know that we did a photo shoot recently at The Machine Shop in Minneapolis.

This little industrial pub table and bar stools were part of it, and I love the set and the backdrop that they chose.  So fun!  Shop it below.

4. A $2,500 giveaway!

Have you ever wished that someone would just casually hand you some money (or a gift card), no strings attached, and say “enjoy your shopping spree!” ?  Um. Yeah.

Well, it could actually happen, and sooner than you think.  Schneiderman’s is giving away a $2,500 gift card to one lucky winner!
