ok, so last weekend it snowed, and this weekend it was in the 80's. yeah. mmhm. 

anyway, it made for a great weekend to paint and clean and leave the windows open (!!!), so that's what I did. I painted a lot of my furniture, and rearranged some stuff to make it springier. I took the rug out of the family room, and put it in the dining room (side note: my dining room drives me crazy, I am ready to turn it into something else) to lighten things up a bit. I figure our toes don't need to be as warm in summer, and the cat is always flipping the rug upside down. 

Here is the re-do. It's not that different (Jordan can't handle furniture rearrangement. He can only handle small changes, and even those are hard...hahaha), but enough different for me to feel comfortable in there. There is a lot of space that isn't captured in the photo. Anyway, I got some new, brighter pillows for the sofa (this sofa is a lot slumpier and lumpier than I would like. Oh well), painted the coffee table (more on that later. I love parentheses), and pulled my craft-room bookshelf into the family room. 

Lots of white, since I really wish I were painting the walls white. Books are in color of the rainbow order. Yep. Soon I plan to get some baskets to hold DVD's. 

last but not least, AWESOME owl embroidered pillow from thrift store. $1.99!!


  1. I'm just stumbling upon your blog for the first time, and I love the beautiful teal wall color in your family room!! Would you mind saying what it is? (My apologies if you've already given this info out elsewhere).

  7. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought you have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.
