Happy Fathers Day to all the wonderful dads out there. I hope you all have a wonderful day with your families today. i am joining Mary Ann, and Annie and we are sharing our Sunday favorites, including my dining room, tv storage hack and more.
HEATHER BULLARD’S INGENIOUS HACK FOR HIDING THE GIANT TV
Do you follow Heather Bullard? She is so creative and always has such wonderful ideas on her blog and Instagram. One of her recent posts really hit home. Steve recently purchased a gargantuan tv for our new/old digs that nearly eats up the entire room. I admit I am not a fan of giant TV screens. Our son went with him to purchase the TV and I nearly cried when they came home with the monstrosity. I am still not happy about it, but Heather’s hack gives me hope.
CROWDED KITCHEN AVOCADO, BLACKBERRY ARUGULA SALAD
I am making this salad from Crowded Kitchen for Fathers Day Brunch. I can’t wait to try it. It is filled with everything I love. This version is made with vegan feta cheese. We are not vegan so I will be making it with regular feta.
AMAZON PRIME DAY
I couldn’t even begin to dig through all the deals offered on Prime Day (which is officially June 21 & 22). If you have been wanting the Apple Air Pods, but don’t like the price tag, you might want to snag them here. They are $189 instead of $249. This is also a great day to order some of the magazines you have been wanting to try. Just remember to cancel at the end of the given period if you have decided they aren’t for you. I put an alert on my calendar the day before. Many are offered at just $6 and under for six months. You can find the full list here. Architectural Digest, Southern Living, Elle Decor, Travel and Leisure, and many more are offered.
OUTFIT OF THE WEEK
I sometimes forget to check out Sundances Outlet. If you check it regularly, you can really find some great deals before they sell out.
This week I spotted these gorgeous embroidered mules and built this week’s outfit around them. While shopping for Father’s Day at Tommy Bahama I spotted this hat. This J Crew Beach Sweater earns high reviews. It’s always hard to find a lightweight sweater for summer evenings that is attractive. J Crew also has these linen pants that look very much like the Jenn pant from CP shades (that I love) at a much better price point. Love the woven bembien bag also from J Crew, and I rounded the outfit out with pretty inexpensive resin accessories from Banana Republic. All items are linked below the graphic.
Also, this linen duster is $49.99 at the Sundance Outlet. I think it is a steal. Sundance is also having 20% off on selected shoes and sandals. If you are a fan of Korkease and other comfort brands you might want to check out the sale here
We are slowly but surely getting rooms together here. We had ordered a round table for the dining room from Dovetail which came broken. After much negotiation, we decided to keep it, Steve was able to repair it. I really like the table but it is a little white for me. I think I may paint the bottom and possibly tweak the finish. Here is a little sneak peek of the dining room. I will take better pictures later as things become more complete. FYI thank you all for your suggestions on the built in. I am currently working on styling it up as a small bar, more on that later.
The light fixture is from Lamps Plus here. The curtains from Pottery Barn, I have been very happy with for the price are still on sale. The rods are from Pottery Barn as well. The seagrass tray is also from PB here.I did not purchase the rings at Pottery Barn because they are cheaper on Ebay here.
That’s it for my Sunday favorites. Thank you for reading My Dining Room, TV storage hack and more. You can find more of my Sunday favorites here. Now pop over and visit Annie and Mary Ann for more Sunday fun.
