Choosing a paint color might be one of the most difficult decisions I make. Seriously, I paint and deliberate and paint and deliberate until one day I eventually find the right color or give up and pick one that will … Continue reading
Forever and always the ability to make a decision, feel confident in it, and stick to will remain a character flaw of mine. Some people label this perfectionism. I call it annoying. Matthew is away on a guy’s trip this … Continue reading
Another one bites the dust. Another project, that is. The other week I blogged about painting our porch and as of Monday evening at 8:30pm, this project is officially crossed off the list. I got into a groove after work … Continue reading
This week I started tackling the front porch…the area right over the front door. It was an addition the last owner’s made to the house but apparently never got around to painting. They did, however, leave the paint for us. … Continue reading
After visiting my sister in Little Rock, I decided to copy her and buy some gold paint. (She painted the ceiling in her office gold, and it may be my favorite use of paint ever. Seriously….best ceiling ever.) I didn’t … Continue reading
You may have seen the following image floating around the internet on blogs and pinterest boards. Well, I am posting it again, because it’s the perfect reminder of creating a cozy guest room. And since I have mentioned that we … Continue reading
This summer will bring lots of guests…and by this summer, I mean, the next couple of weeks, starting with my sister and her husband in less than a week! This string of guests gave me just the push I needed … Continue reading
This weekend we accomplished something big! We finally got our patio finished. This project took us several weekends to finish, and we were not able to work each weekend, which is why it look so long to complete. But this … Continue reading
It is amazing what you can get accomplished when you don’t go anywhere on the weekend. This weekend we started a new project. Are you sensing a trend in our house? We didn’t go into the weekend with the intention … Continue reading
I have a habit of rearranging furniture…a lot. I think I did it twice last week. the good news it that once I finally have it how I like it, I am content and happy. The downside is it takes me a LONG time to get things how I like them. I guess that’s the perfectionist in me. So last week, Matthew brought home a big box full of books for his seminary classes this spring. Add that to the possibly bigger box he brought home in the fall, and we are in major need of shelf space. As much as I have tried to pawn off his books to his office, he sadly has less space there to store books. He shares an office with two other people…who also have lots of books. So…they are staying here, I suppose.
so at about 11:00 the other night I moved a bookcase into the office. Now he already had one in there about the same size but with one less shelf. It also was falling apart. So I took a bookshelf from our living room and moved it into the office which required me moving all of my books somewhere else. Mine are now stuffed in random places until we can figure out a more permanent situation for the books in this house.
So here is what our little reading nook looks like with one less bookcase, and in my opinion, a whole lot more character. I guess it’s a good thing Matthew needed the bookcase in the office, because I like this better than our other setup. But in the future, I am imagining built ins.
The little table definitely needs some work, I am just not sure which direction to go with it, so I will gladly welcome suggestions. Happy Saturday, friends.
