New art desk….

Our art/sewing room had a big old ugly sofa bed in it…and we … husband..finally lugged it out to the curb… 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!

Hello Green Kitchen….

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…..
