A Productive Labor Day Weekend

Instead of taking off for the holiday we used it as a springboard to get things wrapped up around the house. My husband finished painting our breakfast nook. We had stopped that particular project when it got too hot to open the house up. Today was a gorgeous day to fling the windows open and… Continue reading A Productive Labor Day Weekend

A Little Bit of Progress

Another dark photo (sorry), but you can sort of see the progress we’ve made. Most of the breakfast nook is painted the same green as the living room. The whole project is taking less paint than I thought it would. I didn’t realize just how few walls some of our rooms really have with the… Continue reading A Little Bit of Progress

Painting Our Son’s Table

Our son’s end table has seen some rough use. I’ve had to wipe it down half a million times (or at least that’s what it feels like).

We Finally Have a Headboard!

Our headboard finally arrived! It took twelve weeks but it was totally worth the wait. Yes, that’s a toddler on the bed. He’s showing off his amazing cuteness skills. It’s difficult to see, even with a well lit picture, but the headboard has a bookshelf built in. I’m looking forward to decorating it. I bought… Continue reading We Finally Have a Headboard!

Finished the Bedroom and Starting on the Living Room

Yesterday we finally got the right weather for finishing up the room. It feels so good to see it finished after such a painfully long time looking at half-painted walls. We’re still waiting for our headboard to come in. We ordered it three months ago and it was back ordered. The rest of the set… Continue reading Finished the Bedroom and Starting on the Living Room
