We sold our house!!! :)
Such a blessing and answer to prayer. We definitely were not expecting for everything to go through within a week, so we're still figuring out what our next step will be. Depending on that decision, I may or may not be back to regular blogging. Either way, I'll let you know!
Thanks for all the support and dedicated following! My readers are awesome. :)
We actually completed this project a while ago, but here it is finally. I went with painting the legs purple because in the end, I didn't want them to stand out too much. I really love this piece, and wanted the legs to compliment it, not steal the show. The frames above are a nice bright punch to the space. I also switched out the plants with some really cute owl bookends my sister got me for my birthday. Loving this little corner now!!
Cannot believe it's actually Thursday, much less that Thanksgiving is a week from today! We're hosting this year, so I feel a little bit of pressure to finish up the millions of little projects we've got going on all at once!! I took a break yesterday from doing things so that I could actually clean my house. Hopefully will be back at it today! :)
Left to do (hopefully before thanksgiving):
- tape off stripes and paint (they're already marked, so hopefully this will go fast)
- finish painting trim around the front door (maybe)
- sand the putty on the entertainment center doors
- prime and paint doors
- find hardware for them
- finish 2nd coat of paint in power bath
- free hand stencil powder bath
- putty holes on dining room table and paint (maybe)
Putting this door in was one of our first projects for our house!
The front entry has the most ridiculous layout plan I've seen in a long time. With a solid door, the tiny hallway of an entry was dark and gloomy! The window in our new door (a steal of a deal!!) lets in so much light and definitely improved the space.
We have a huge Japanese maple right out front which has given us great privacy. Now that the leaves are starting to fall, we needed something that would let the light in but could close at night. This cute little curtain adds some color to the space too!
Bottom photo is a little blurry, but it works for now. :)
Recognize the fabric? I had turned a bargain shower curtain from Target into curtains, and now they've been transformed again into pillow covers! :) They felt more appropriate for winter than our bright colorful striped Ikea ones. The flash makes them look more yellow than they are, but it's a pretty gray and cream colored fabric. A fast and fun update to our family room!
The tutorial I used for the envelope pillow covers came from HERE.
