Our art/sewing room had a big old ugly sofa bed in it…and we …..um..my husband..finally lugged it out to the curb…..it was way over due! And that meant that the room had more space…so River could have a bigger art desk!
I dug up an old desk that we had down in the basement…..seemed about the right height….but it needed a chair. So, I dug up an old chair that we had in the basement..but it needed a makeover! I thought it would be fun to redo the upholstery with some faux red leather…..well, I’m not sure if I like it or not….it looks like it is ready to go out to a go go bar! But it is done……maybe someday I’ll get around to redoing it!
She decided she wanted her new desk to be near Quinn and Tuesday’s desks…..and this is also a better spot..because it gets more natural light. I think she likes her new art desk!
After our trip to Long Beach Island, my husband took our kids to Maine for 4 days…I had 4 days by myself! I don’t think that has happened in about 5 years! So, of course, I had to do a project! Our kitchen has been in need of a makeover..BIG TIME! We haven’t done anything to the kitchen since we moved in…except get new appliances….I spend so much time in the kitchen, yet I couldn’t stand how it looked!
I couldn’t take it! The previous owners had put red and white striped contact paper on the ceiling! I had ripped it down and half of it still remained. Also, we had gotten a new light/fan and where the old fluorescent light was..there were holes and discoloration! In other words, it was a mess! I love bold and vivid colors and I wanted a bright green kitchen……well, I think I got it!!
The ceiling took me a lot longer than I expected, so I wasn’t able to finish everything I hoped to finish! I still need to paint the cabinets white, give them new hardware and put a tile backsplash behind the stove! That is the next project. But, for now, I’m happy with the changes…now when I go into the kitchen, I smile instead of moan! Now, I just need a new kitchen floor…..
