Voila

Excuses. Excuses.

Always.

This week's excuse is that I've been just plain exhausted. And lazy. And don't feel like using my brain whatsoever. So, I don't blog.

Boo.

But guess what?

I DID finish my masters.

I'm pretty sure that will free up at least 90% of my time. I think I can remember maybe 4 Saturdays and/or Sundays in the last 3 years where I was not writing a paper.

I mean, what does one do on the weekends?

So. Now that I have a little extra time, I figured I'd catch you up on a project that took place back in November.

Our sweet little first house has made me sweat/complain/swear more than anything I've ever taken part in, but we are finally starting to see some results.

Thousands more results to go...but focus on the positive, right?

So, here's le dining room. Still needs work. Obvi.

But I'm digging it.


Before: blah paint with scuff marks, red accent wall, 1960's wood, and boob light.



In progress: 2 coats of primer and 2 coats of reg paint,
Who needs painter's tape when you've done this for 8 months straight? Not I.

After: chipper paint, new chandelier, farm-y shelves (will be replacing the rug at some point with a more neutral color).


Just for funsies: Before and After.

Love the dining room! Can you imagine your done with your masters now and hopefully soon you will be done with the house- then what will you really do with your weekends :)

Ok, I had to LOL at your use of the words "boob light." I will never be able to look at those light fixtures the same way again without thinking that. The after looks so good!

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something
which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me.
I am looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!

Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform
are you using for this website? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
