Our family summer vacation has arrived are we really are enjoying our Ventura Beach House! The remodel was so worth it!
I have always said that you need to put a date on the calendar with a big event if you want to get your house looking its best. All of the last-minute details, including the closets, are done and I must say things are looking good at the Ventura beach house!
Season 3 Volume 26
Thanks for joining me for Sunday Morning Coffee. This is a place to share, learn, explain, dream, and have fun. Let’s get started!
It’s family vacation time at the beach house and we are having a blast!
It feels like I have been waiting for this week for years and if I stop and think about it, it’s true. We started planning the beach house remodel in 2020 and spent 14 months with plans and getting permits from the city (which is crazy since we didn’t ask for a single variance).
Then we spent over a year with the remodel construction, decorating, furnishing, etc. Of course, that last part is really fun, and I am a bit sad that the house is pretty much done.
After years of a big project, we are finally enjoying our first vacation with our entire family!

My Latest Project
There are a few things that we completed at the beach house this past week and I cannot wait to share them with you.
Check out the new rug above that just arrived in the king bedroom. It’s from Amazon and I love it.
We also installed the wallpaper and closets in our primary bedroom. We finished installing the closets on Friday and they are amazing. Can I brag that I assembled 12 drawers, including the hinges? I am just so happy that we have a real closet again.
I will be sharing our new closets very soon!

My Biggest Challenge This Week
Once again, the logistics of getting everything done for our family vacation have been crazy.
Dave panicked when he saw how many Amazon packages have arrived this past week. Most of the items were for my grandson but I also stocked up on a lot of staples and items that a new house needs!
Fortunately, he realized all of the boxes contained essential items. At least I hid the ones that weren’t!
The other day I realized we didn’t have any tape in the house. Seriously, no tape? I was trying to hang some photos and I made a template with butcher paper and couldn’t hang it on the wall. Fortunately, our neighbor came to the rescue! Would you believe I bought these frames over a year ago? I knew they would look great somewhere!
My Friend KariAnne at Thistlewood wrote an amazing blog post titled Is Farmhouse Decor Out of Style? It’s great.
Do you follow Chris Loves Julia? I love her article titled How Much Does It Cost To Install Wallpaper?
Do you follow Becki Owens? you should.
Do you follow Janine at Happy Happy Nester? You should follow her too.
Heidi at Eleanor Rose Home shared this amazing Farmhouse Cottage Bedroom: Summer Refresh. I love it!
I have been at the beach four out of six days this past week and I shared a table I set at home inspired by the beach. I also thought you would like my favorite apple pie, a DIY to make a bread basket, a Pottery Barn knock-off of their 4th of July placemats, gluten-free donuts, and a tour of our finishes deck!
Martha Stewart shared 23 of Our Best Summer Appetizers for Parties and Cookouts. I am sure there is a recipe here for you!
I have lots of fun things to share this week including my favorite summer pillows, our new putting green at the beach house, the most amazing Lemon Pie, and some barbecuing tips. Sometimes I forget to share our Waco Airbnb so I decided to share the bedrooms in our Waco Airbnb and an outdoor patio tour.
