I had a nice mostly unplugged weekend. I worked a little on Saturday morning and then just spent the weekend doing other things. With the move done, it now feels like we are starting to build our routines back. I was on the hunt for a small table for out nook and I hit up a couple resale/antique stores. Here are some nice shots of some businesses getting decked out for fall and Halloween:
I did find an interesting table, but it might be a little too big.
I also finally got out into my own garden. This is the mess (one of) I am trying to sort out:
Yeah, it’s a big mess! If I can get anything cleared out, I might just get a chance to put some bulbs in just to have something come up in the spring.
House progress. I got all the wallpaper off the dining room wall! Each room seems to have a different level of wallpaper hell going on. This one seemed easy at first because the top wallpaper came right off except for right at the ceiling where it was glued in a strip (which took forever to get off), but the bottom was 4 layers. With paint in between. That took forever and a day. But now it is done!
All that is left is wall patching, quick sanding and then paint. That red color is what is going on the bottom half. It’s called Merlot. Top will be cream. It will be good to get this room done.
I found strange stuff, too. It looks like someone took a knife and stabbed the wall.
Is that not bizarre? This was up high above the window, too. All the neighbors we have met so far do not have a high opinion of the guy that had this house before. He sounds like a real peach.
We finished the doors for the radiator cabinet after my mismeasurement..oopsie… Or should I say John resized them 😀 Here is the old kitchen and what we were trying to solve:
Here is this area now:
The doors came out just like I wanted! The cabinets were moved a smidge to the left. We bought the radiator screen online and cut it to fit the middle of the doors. Then painted and voila. Now the heat can come out from behind there and we don’t have to look at it 😀 The drawers fronts look a little small above, but for now they will do. Plus we need a little trim on the bottom to match the other door, but those are small details. I know I owe you a full kitchen reveal as well.
Today’s pink picture! This is a magnet my sister brought us back on a trip she took to California earlier this year. Bling!
