... garage was drywalled today.
... siding guys were putting up the soffits.
... there's siding in the front yard dirt.
... the basement ceiling is drywalled.
... doors arrived.
cabinets, people. this is gettin' REAL.
in case you haven't seen the month two album, the rest of the house has been drywalled, mudded, the ceilings have been knocked down, and i believe all has been primed.
in other interesting news ...
my mom was up for a leisurely 36 hour visit last weekend, and we took a trip to ikea ... she needed rugs, i needed lights. it was a win/win.
i picked up one of these lovelies (the small version):
i had found this amazing hack of the light ...
and had plans to totally steal make my own version for over the craft table. where the rest of the room would go beyond that was still fuzzy, but then i saw this wallpaper ...
it looks kinda like this ...
so now my head is spinning: gold maskros? buttery walls with one amy butler wallpaper accent wall? red metal shelf with wire baskets?? hmmm ... much warmer than the rest of the house, but i'm kind of loving the idea of this room.
but before i get ahead of myself, i need to make sure all the other duckies are lined up nice and neat. can't have round posts in a square house, regardless of pretty wallpaper and wire baskets.
first things first.
