Hi all! I hope you had a fantastic weekend! I got to spend some time at home catching up on some much needed housework. My husband Jason and son Coleton ran in a 5K on Saturday, the Trick Or Trot in Bridgeport, WV. My son came in 4th place overall! He was excited about that. And Jason, well…he finished, haha! It was his first ever 5K, and he was only 40 seconds over his goal, so I think he did great! My daughter and her friends went to the Monster Mash at Bridgeport High School on Saturday night! They got ready here and they all looked awesome!
Have you been watching the news about the Frankenstorm? Well, it is all that is being discussed around here! Jason is a meteorologist and he is watching it very closely. He says it could possibly be the biggest storm he has ever covered in his career! So stay tuned in to it everybody!!
We made some progress on our kitchen cabinets this weekend. We are refnishing them, and I broke this project down into 3 sections of cabinets to make it feel more do-able. I finished the second section on Friday evening, and the husband rehung and changed the hardware on Saturday. I can finally see the end in sight! After they are finished it will be on to painting the walls in the kitchen and dining room. Which brings me to what I wanted to post about. The dining room/office. That’s right people! We are limited on space in this house, so we had no choice but to combine the two. I worried about this the most when we were moving into this house, but as Tim Gunn would say, we have to ” make it work”!! Actually the spacing of it all turned out OK, it doesn’t feel too cramped in there. I cleaned that room on Saturday, so I decided to go ahead and take some pictures of what it looks like now. We still have LOTS to do in this room, but here are some pictures of what we’ve got going on so far.
- Paint the walls
- Relocate the Chandelier
- DIY the chandelier???
- Paint the buffet???
- Paint the table and chairs or even better, replace them??? (replacing them in my dreams)
- Add shelving and organization over the computer desk
- Replace the area rug (in my dreams)
- Stencil at least one wall
- Add bamboo blinds
- Add art to the walls
- Add crown molding (in my dreams)
