I painted our house ! Well not all of it, just the living room/dining room/playroom/kitchen/entry way room. I have been wanting to all summer, and finally did. Took me a day and half. I painted the walls but still have the ceiling to do. Jon's going to wax our floors too. They are real wood and have some wear and tear on them after 10 years. We have a big list of to-do's and am finally starting them. Jon's going to build me some shelving area in our entry/coat area/dining room. It is so hard to organize our winter gear without a closet. This house only has 2 very small closets and they are in the 2 bedrooms. Our house was bright green for those of you who didn't see it before. So this is a huge change to go from green to gray. I still have to finish making the curtains, and a curtain for above my sink, just haven't had time to run to the craft store...maybe also because I don't have a car ha. But I'm excited to have a bright freshened up house to start off our winter!
I have to update our pictures still, they are all in at the store but I have yet to remember to pick them up!
My fabric hoops had super bright colors in them, and since I changed up our color scheme a little, I had to change the fabrics. Blacks, grays, whites and some burlap did the trick!
The yellow painting of flowers is a painting my grandmother painted for President Nixon for his summer home in San Clemente. It was a huge painting and super long, and it ended up getting cut into smaller pieces so now all of us cousins have one piece. It's very special to all of us. She was an amazing painter & interior designer.
Tristons "play room" area
Decided to do an "old things" mantel piece. Old bottles, vintage camera that was my grandpas then my dads, old window and a bunch of old books
This would be where I spent most of my summer haha
I sewed a bunch of new pillow case covers to update my pillows. Super easy and cheap!
This is in front of my sink. It is a reminded that when I complain about having too many dishes to clean, that it only means we have food in our stomachs. It's a blessing to have dirty dishes! My mom always said this
growing up and I already know I will be telling my boys this same thing.
My spot haha
