Another week in the books and we can’t believe August is almost upon us! Besides sipping more rosé for our exposé part two (coming soon!) we’re trying to soak up all the last moments of summer. See what we’re loving in this week’s And Then We Tried obsessions.
A few years ago, I was at a flea market with my family and my sister Jennifer saw and fell in love with a giant reclaimed wood cow, but it was super expensive, so I decided I could make it for less. A common theme with the ladies of And Then We Tried. I made this DIY reclaimed pallet wood cow for her for Christmas and have gotten a lot of questions about it recently, so here’s how it went down.
Ever since I experimented with indigo dye last year, I have been playing with different ways to dye fabric. Many of which call for a consistent simmer which means you have to do it over the stovetop. Definitely a BIG ask. SO BIG my boyfriend refuses to be present when this happens for fear of dye ending up everywhere. But fear not, as daunting as it sounds, follow these simple tips for fabric dying over the stovetop and it’s easy.
What are you all up to this weekend? We’ve got big plans to steal some wildflowers and we’ve got the perfect vases to put them in. Plus, a pretty nostalgic soundtrack to blast while we’re perfecting our flower arranging. See what we’re talking about in this week’s And Then We Tried obsessions!
As I mentioned in the house paint reveal post, I refinished my deck with Olympic Maximum Stain after the crew wrapped up painting and I’m here to share the process and the before and after! We made some safety improvements and some huge visual improvements and now the back deck is the perfect place to relax.

Let me just start this off by saying that I am not, obviously, a medical or mental health professional, just someone who has experienced travel anxiety and learned to deal with it. Anxiety can be a very personal issue, but talking about it with others (or the entire Internet) and sharing experiences can be helpful for everyone.Keep Reading
Hope you all had a great, short week after the 4th! We are really leaning into summer this week and are obsessed with summery manicures, hats, and food. See everything we’re obsessed with in this week’s And Then We Tried obsessions.
