I’ve had some energy lately and what better time to do some freshening up around the house than winter when you’re stuck inside? I painted our stove area white, which really makes a huge difference in how bright our living room looks. It took a gallon–that’s three coats–of paint! Most of which was done with a tiny paintbrush in order to get all of the nooks, crevices, and grout covered. It was fun to do though because it was something I could work on intermittently and finally a house project I can do myself! I wish I had a little more handy in me.
I’d also never got around to making proper curtains for my boy’s room. I had some floral Ikea curtains that I literally pinned up. So now he has official curtains that are lined with a cute bird print and have blackout batting to boot. Very fancy. They hardly took any time, too, and I just love the chevron print.
And hello, Pinterest. I finally got on board (always a late adapter) and now am obsessively pinning things. Even my husband has commented on how much I’ve been on it, and usually he has nothing to say about online habits because he’s so addicted to Twitter, online board games, or some bike blog. I added my link to the sidebar if you’re interested in sharing.
