The great reno of 2009

I hate that I haven't been on here in forever. Life is crazy. Training for the new job and all kinds of life stresses. I know that blogging would be therapeutic for me, but I can't find the time. Either way, this is our spare bedroom. We've been working on it for weeks, and it's finally done. I can't find a before other than how it looked the day we moved in, so we'll start there...

Ta-daaa! Here is the after. I LOVE how it turned out!!!!!

And of course the super cool light I found at Ikea.... I love that place! The picture looks a bit crappy, but the light is white and it was hard to take. But picture it white, lol.

What do you think?

busy week off

I can't believe this week is over! I've been off work for a full week now and I can honestly say it's what I've been needing! I feel great. I've been sleeping in, we've been working around the house, I've done a few Epicure parties.

We planted part of our garden, but it wont stop raining so the rest will have to wait. It's not continual raining, but it's cloudy and overcast and spits a bit then dries up again. Crazy.

We tore apart the spare bedroom (front room). We both absolutely HATE that popcorn ceiling spackling stuff, so we decided to scrape it off. Looks great - what a freakin' mess though! Then we've been priming the walls and ceiling and put the first coat of paint on this afternoon. We are going to wallpaper one wall as a focus wall too. I'm excited for the finished project, I think it'll look great. We're aiming to get most of it done this weekend - as I start my new job on Monday!!

I'm really looking forward to starting!
