I have been a little busy this last month with redecorating the house a bit. I just typed out a few long paragraphs about the process, but then realized a picture is worth a thousand words, and deleted it all. So here's what I've been up to!
Kitchen after ( I still have to put my nic nacs up on the walls...)
Bathroom before (well, halfway through!)
Living room before
Living room after (still have to get quilts up on those walls!)
Phew I'm tired just looking at it!
I listened to 6 books on CD during all of this if that gives you any indication of the time it took!
I can now paint a straight line without using painters tape, cut miters on baseboards, use an undercut saw on doorjambs, install new windowsills, and am pretty good at cutting odd shapes with a utility knife :) And if you're wondering why my hubby wasn't the one doing all of the work, well he is as inclined to do home improvement projects as I am to do math (which he loves!) He just pays for it all ;) Oh and an incident with a table saw as a teenager involving a couple of fingers being lopped off doesn't make him too excited about being near any kind of home improvement tools!
Next up is our bedroom, painting kitchen cabinets and the 'gorgeous' 70's faux brick, and more work in the bathroom (new caulk and paint).
And of course, finishing up the quilt you all kindly voted on! Now you see why I changed that border choice to green, right?!
