So back to my original post purpose. Projects. I mentioned yesterday not only my obsession with Pinterest (you can follow me here: http://pinterest.com/kalinm4/) but my love of John and Sherry's blog younghouselove.com and at this point I should mention another one by Katie Bower bowerpowerblog.com. Well it just so happens that both John and Sherry, and Katie decided to join those three things together this week with their quarterly(?) edition of a Pinterest Challenge!!!!! There are many many many....many things (according to my latest count 368 things to be exact) that I pined in anticipation that I might actually do it one day, whether it be a recipe, a project, a house inspiration idea, or starting a garden. Or this that's just funny....
Since I will be visiting the hometown this weekend I won't have the chance to do any projects before Katie and Sherry will be sharing them on their blogs this next Wednesday. But what I can do is share a few projects that I mentioned yesterday that are on my list of TO DO's...the never ending list I might add.
- Painting my file cabinet. Its a nice solid wood 2 drawer piece, bought off craigslist for $15 close to 2 years ago...been sitting waiting to be painted ever since. Yeah I'm that good. Since my guy will be out of town next weekend I'm hoping to knock it out then.
- Painting bedrooms. See more below.
- Build raised beds to then start a garden in. The one of the (sarcastic) joys of having a dog is that she doesn't care what she runs on. If I don't build my garden up Molly will just trample everything.
- Build an upholstered storage bench.
Question: does anyone else have a guy who whines that he doesn't have any say in the decorating of the house but then when said guy is given the chance to help make decisions/have a say it goes one of two ways: a) its like pulling teeth, or b) the suggestions are jokingly way out in far left field. Case in point:
Kalin: "So what colors do you think for the guest bedrooms?"
Gotta love him though. After pulling some teeth we came out of Home Depot quite a bit poorer and a few bags of painting supplies heavier. The final verdict on the guest rooms is a light/minty green "Rejuvination" paint and primer by Behr Paint and I can't remember the name of our bedroom paint but my inspiration came from this:
