Last time I left you, it was with some tips on wallpapering. I've recently rearranged the mantel and will show you a picture soon...right after we paint it white. *Sidenote - There's been an internal dilemma about the trim - I decided to not paint it white and just restain to keep the "character" and "history" of the home. But the more staining we do, the more I'm convinced that this trim, although old, is not original to this house and is some pretty rough shape. I settled on a compromise of painting the doors white and keeping the trim dark.*
So here's what's been happening, via unedited phone pictures so I don't bore you with wordz:
I bought these chairs on Craigslist. If you know me, you know coral is my jam. And blue and white patterned fabric runs a close second. For $60, it was hard to pass up.
|Fancy peel and stick window coverings in the background.|
I got a new toilet. Perks of having a leaky tub I suppose...
|Isn't she pretty?|
|Note to self: always put a tarp down before pulling down 102 year old plaster.|
|Saved myself about $90 of labor but I almost killed myself.|
|Amazing what you can do with a paper bag and some spray paint.|
|The Perfect Brownie pan also make Perfect Lemon Bars.|
|30 going on 13.|
|I'm going to make a garland for my Christmas tree with these.|
|I already framed the towel to hang as art.|
Phew, that's a lot. And explains why not a lot of progress has happened at the house. I'm too busy eating, drinking and crafting I guess.
