So much stuff going on around here. My son had his variety tournament (VEWL) this past weekend. And I’m so proud of him for making it to the second day. He had a tough weight class and has come a long way. My back is of course killing me after spending two days on the bleachers.
One of the things that I accomplished the weekend before last is that I painted our kitchen and dining room all white. One of the affects of my hallway makeover. My shoulder is killing me again but I’m glad I did it. It sounds boring but I love it.
And all that makes me (of course) want to change other things. I’m thinking about tiling my backsplash now after all. And I would like to add some colorful artwork in the dining room. For now I hung my painting that I made (click HERE) for the living room in the dining room but the scale is all wrong. The colors are perfect though.
I see another artwork project coming up. Ha!
I am heartbroken because I broke the horse that you see on the kitchen counter while cleaning it. Some pieces are crushed and I won’t be able to fix it entirely. I’m not ready to give up yet though.
I also found an $18 dollar rug at Ross which I will use in the kitchen for now. If the cats destroy it, I won’t be that upset at that price. That’s so much better than destroying my childhood millim rug. I was getting sick of the grey chevron rug and will probably move it to our front porch this spring since it is an indoor/outdoor rug.
It’s pretty nice for $18 right?
Oh and I also moved my money tree into the dining room but I’m not sure it’s doing that great:
My hubby also got me these two brass fighting roosters for my birthday that I had spotted. They are creepy and cool. At least I think so!
And they are so sharp that they double function as weapons for unwanted visitors. JK 😉
My next upcoming project will be my chaise in our bedroom. I’m teaming up with Onlinefabrics.net who is giving me the microfiber to redo the chaise. There is no turning back now. I’m feeling the pressure and have weak knees 😉 This means I will be stuck in the bedroom for the next couple of days/weeks to attempt this upholstery job. The disassembly will probably take me a huge amount in itself.
One last thing my friends. I had some issues with my last pet series post going out correctly and if you did miss it, then don’t forget to click over (click HERE) to meet adorable, fluffy Perny and Gabbi from “Retro Ranch Reno“.
