Well, we’ve been busy as usual around here & I thought I’d share some pictures of our progress. Above & below is the mantle arrangement I just did today… You know how you just get restless sometimes & need a change?
I still haven’t gotten anything on the walls “permanently” in this house yet!! And the walls are still the same shade of builder’s white as when we moved in… It’s been driving me insane but what I want to do requires lots of time & effort and we’re just so not there yet. But anyway, I had fun picking some hosta leaves for the mantle (below):
And here is it now:
The cabinets are now a pretty shade of gray-green that works really well with our views outside. I’m really happy with them but who knows how long they’ll stay green? We also got cup pulls from Home Depot for the drawers & knobs for the cabinets (to match my far-in-the-future stainless steel appliances) which made HUGE difference (to me 😉 …. Still no wax covers on my vintage chandelier…
I found this HUGE chalkboard (almost 6 feet high) at one of my favorite thrift stores for $40 and I can’t tell you enough what a lifesaver it’s been!!! My little guy got really into throwing his food on the wall by his high chair (ahhhhhh!!) and I was really second-guessing putting up wallpaper because it would get ruined. (ignore the messed up wall in the corner 😉
Hope you enjoyed!! Have a great weekend!!!
