SEVERE BLOG GUILT

The blog guilt is really getting to me. When I got the bill for my domain name — it really hit me how little I document about our lives these day. And these are the days that are truly most amazing.

I’ll just start with the sub-project to all the other things going on around here. As if I didn’t have enough going on, I decided to FINALLY fix the on-going problem of the wallpaper glue that was appearing in our master bathroom. Little did I know that a few days with oil based primer would start an avalanche of change around this house. The beige is giving way to shades of grey. I’m {trying} to step outside of my {predictable} decorating box to add a little personality to our spaces. So far…we love it. So many projects left to do. It makes me tired just to think about it.

As of today, I’ve painted all of the interior doors and trim a crisp snow white. All of the hardware was removed, sanded, degreased, primed and painted in an Oil Rubbed Bronze finish. The Master bath, Master bedroom, pantry, kitchen, family room, laundry, back hall, and front hall have been painted. The front door, garage door and shutters have been cleaned and painted. I found a bench and recovered it in a white and yellow chevron fabric. I painted the kitchen table and four chairs. I made a faux roman shade for over the sink in the kitchen. I painted my den french doors dark grey. Started on the drop cloth draperies I want to hang in the family room — waiting for the weather to cooperate for this project.

All of this and a million other little projects have been filling the gaps between the kids’ schedules, the work I have been doing on a HUGE project, and just trying to keep up with cleaning, cooking, laundry and being a mom & wife.
