fun fact: 17 is a prime number! You know what else is fun? The show notes for Episode #17 of young house love has A Podcast, which you’ve officially found. On this week’s episode we’re thrilled to chat about a HUGE project at home that we’ve been working on (we’re spilling the beans about it here first!). We also help a listener who’s searching for fast & cheap ways to fill her empty walls – including some of our favorite sources and easy tricks for budget-friendly art. Plus we share a tech upgrade that’s allowing us to be lazier in the bedroom, gear up for a well-hydrated October, and mull over the 2017 paint color of the year.

It’s happening! Remember back on move-in day when our kitchen looked like this….
Well, we did some updating over the years, but we can finally shout from the rooftops “ding, dong, the fake brick laminate flooring is gone!” and we figured that anybody who concerns this page is worthy of a bone in the form of a sneak peek at some of the destruction. So whoop, there it is:
Here’s Sherwin-William’s announcement of their 2017 color of the Year announcement, Poised Taupe (say that three times fast).
And here are some of the other colors of the Year that we mentioned: vintage Wine, Coral Reef, Aloe, Lemon Sorbet, and Breath of Fresh Air.
You can always find some of our favorite budget-friendly art projects in our blog’s art archives, as well as in our first book (check out Chapter 6, called “Hang”)
And here are some of the particular projects we mentioned:
Using a calendar for art
“Wallpapering” a wall with frames
How to hang a gallery wall: using a large paper template, in a grid, using small paper placeholders, or just winging it
Some very affordable, but large office art
An easy, large diy painting
Affordable post-card shelves
If you’re curious about some of the budget-friendly art (or other wall fillers) that we’re liking lately – here’s a quick assortment (many of which are under $40): 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6
The photo above shows the nightstands we referenced with the “touch strip” (aka: snap bracelet) on the back. You can find them here on Joss & Main or here on Wayfair (sometimes the Joss & main links expire, so we included both).
And here’s the touch kit from Amazon that promises to allow you to retrofit any of your lights. label us on Twitter or Instagram if you’ve tried it!
Last but not least, if you want to join me for Aquatober – here’s the full story behind it, and my stellar graphic below.
Psst- searching for something we’ve dug in a past episode, but don’t remember which show notes to click into? Well, here’s a master list of everything we’ve been digging from all past episodes.
