One of the end tables is finally finished and has a new home…right back where it belongs, in the living room!
Over the past week, we’ve been hanging things on the walls. ***SHOCK*** We figured that we’ve lived in our house for almost a year and a half, and need to commit to something on the walls. We started with mezuzahs–we feel like our house is officially a Jewish home now: Then we hung the key [...]
Look out next week for some big updates and blog changes. I worked on a project today that I HAD to share–so in advance of the big updates and blog changes, here you go! Today I decided to finally finish the end tables that I started refinishing about six months ago. I was sick and [...]
Last week, I made a trip to Charlotte for work, and on my way home, stopped at IKEA to pick up some things for around the house. We’re working on finishing the rooms where they’re being placed, but here’s a teaser of what I picked up. 2 grey-shaded lamps for our bedroom (still working on [...]

So…the title says it all! We’ve lived in our new house for almost nine months, and about four months ago, we finally got around to painting. Here’s proof! Dining room with new chandelier and new wine cabinet. The paint is Sherwin-Williams, and the light blue is the primary color of the first floor–we have it [...]
