Pay no mind to the horrific oak cabinets. The jury is still out on what I want to do there. I have gone back and forth with painting versus replacing and I can't decide! I don't see us in our home for many more years so that weighs heavy into the money-output equation.
I am loving my new leather chairs, too! I couldn't bare to get rid of my clear ones so they are just hanging out as extra seating (see them peaking out in the right-hand corner of the photo below?) for now.
Since spring is almost upon us, I have a few plans up my sleeve for some spring projects around the Brower house. I'm really tiring of my White Mint (SW) walls and have spent the better part of the last year mulling over changing it in favor of a more neutral neutral I'm about 90% ready to fire on that. I'd like to paint over it with the same color in our bedroom, Dove Wing (BM), which is white with a tint of greige. In some light it looks super minty (below).
Whereas in other light, it's barely a whisper of mint. Regardless, it's got to go.
Also up on the painting front is removing all the busyness around here. When we first moved in, I was thrilled to be able to paint my walls however I wanted. But now that I've lived with it for a couple of years, I need some calm around here.
It's time to paint over this fun hallway treatment.
And this apropos ceiling treatment in my guest bath. I'll be sad to see them go, but it will make it better for resale in the future.
We've been busy with the childrens' rooms project we are working on and in spite of those projects, we are in the process of getting a new blog design rolled out. I know Mom loves our stripes, but I certainly can't wait to shed this 'my first blog' look!
I am gearing up (and by gearing up I mean eating my way through the town and surrounding areas) to start a weight loss program next week to follow through with my resolutions this year. While I'm scared as *$@# I am pumped about getting healthy. I wanna be back to my fighting weight. And my hubby is doing it with me, which is a huge support system in and of itself. Thank god we'll have each other. Although if you hear random screaming, that might be me in the midst of full-on withdrawals.
Seamus is going to his first show this coming weekend and we are really excited. He's 7 months old [I can't believe it!] and goofy as all get out, so this is sure to be a spectacle. We've been working hard at getting him out and about but trash bags and brooms are still a terrible fright! Just look at this face. What judge wouldn't love it??
Wish me/us luck!
