office sneak peak

The changes are coming and I am loving it. It is starting to feel like our home. Each week I like to tackle at least one project. When I am all done I can go back to a little relaxing and projects here and there. This wallpaper came off very nice unlike the mudroom area. I could not decide what to do with the book shelves but decided stay with the darker wood. Sometimes when you paint wood and you use it a lot without lots of polyurethane it still chips. Rob uses his office about 3 days a week so it had to be durable. I love white but I figured the dark would not show dirt and I love mixing dark wood and white together. All the molding took a long time but I am happy how it all turned out. I will post more pictures soon when I actually clean it and decorate it up a bit more.
I can't tell you how great it feels to rip down 80's wallpaper

I love this stain! This is one of my favorite stains ever!! It is so nice because it goes on like a gel. You can use it thinner or thicker. It makes any pieces of old furniture look fresh again. It is a pain to get off your hands but I have found that orange oil or Goo Gone works well to get it off the skin. I will never be a poster child for nice nails. I see so many girls with pretty nails and It will not work out for me and all my endeavours I am afraid.

Still messy but much better!!

Things have been crazy here. We are working on re-doing our whole kitchen. What a project!! I have meet with so many different people and have looked at so many pictures. Next week I have another appointment so I will blog about some of the plans. I am hoping things start to come together and we can find a design we just love.

Have a great weekend!!
