Weekend Projects

Hey y'all! Everybody ready for the weekend?
What do you have planned?
Any projects on your "to do" list?
I am finally going to finish up the wainscoting in the master bedroom.

For the treatment I have used a wallpaper that has the appearance of bead board.



And I am using casing for the chair rail.
I love the detail and it is a bit more substantial as well.



Not what you would typically use but.... This stuff was less than 1/2 the price of traditional chair rail moulding. I got a 12pk of 7ft lengths for $22 bucks at Lowes. WooHoo! You can't beat that with a stick. :)

Well, time to take some measurements.
Have a great Friday evening everyone!

Last Tuesday of the month..

Can y'all believe that July is just about gone?
Time has been going by so fast this year; and especially this summer.

Well, we didn't make it to the bridal show this weekend so no pics of that event.
I did upload the pics of the glassware that a family friend gave me.


(sorry for the bad, blurry pic)

I lurve me some glassware.. I think I am addicted. Actually, I know I am.. LOL

My dad and stepmom are giving us an antique credenza; so I think I am going to get rid of my china cabinet and use the credenza to store my china and such. That way it will "fit" in several different places in the house and I won't "have to" put it in the breakfast or dining rooms. :) We'll see.

Time to get back to work.
Have a great night.

I Love my sweetie!

See what he bought me on his way home from work!



Aren't they beautimus!

He just wanted to surprise me because I am walking every day now and he wanted to make sure my tootsies are safe and comfy. :)

Oh.. I didn't tell you.. I have walked 3 miles a day, every day this week. Yay!
I am really excited about it..
Now don't get me wrong... It kicks my bootay every time I get out there but I still push myself through it; annnd I do it in less than an hour. That is giving me a good heart pumping, fat burning cardio workout.
The first couple of days I was praying for rain so that I didn't "HAVE TO" walk; but now I am raring to go at 7:30 every evening. Its almost like my body is craving it. LOL... And let me tell you... I was NOT an active person at all.. I was one that watched people on tv exercise and would say to myself "Ohhh I am gonna start doing that". And of course I never would.. LOL
If any of you want to start, I really do recommend it. But I will say this...
Set a pace that is comfortable for yourself and don't over do it. Then, you can step up the pace and the distance gradually.

I hope you all have a super weekend!
I will try to post pics tomorrow evening of our day at the Bridal Extravaganza! :)

Happy Friday!

Hey y'all.. Hope you've had a great week! I am sooo ready for the weekend. The girl's are coming to town! WooHoo! Tomorrow we are going to the Bridal Extravaganza. I have been one other time and let me tell you, that place was jam packed. I don't expect this time to be any different. But I am looking forward to sharing this with my baby girl.

Oh... I got the pics of the kitchen. :)

Okay.. here is the before...

and now... after!


I am soooo in love with this mustard color..
and they new cabinet hardware.. Lurve It!
I thought that the color would make the kitchen seem smaller than it already is.. but it actually makes it feel bigger. :)

Now its time to move on to the master bedroom.
I have the moulding already just need to cut, paint and put it up. I need to paint the walls too.. I do have the wainscoting up already though. :) and my wonderful hubbikins is going to make us a big custom headboard. Yay!

Okay y'all.. Well I need to get an apron and a set of placemats made before Sunday, so I guess I better get busy. :)

Have a great day!

I'm Back Y'all...

I know, I know.. It's been nearly 2 months since my last post. :(
Would you believe that we have had house guests this entire time? As soon as one leaves another arrives.. At some points there were overlapping guests.. LOL
Well for about 4 days now it has just been me and my sweetie pie! We have been spending lots of wonderfully good quality time together. YAY! I love spending time with my hubby!

I have been doing lots of decorating, painting, installing moulding & cabinet hardware. I kinda got on a roll and couldn't stop. LOL
I haven't taken pics of anything lately so I will have to post them in the next few days.. (hopefully.. if I dont forget) hehehe

Oh, and I got some wonderful vintage glassware pieces from a longtime family friend.. I am sooo excited! I will have to take pics of those too.

We have a new neighbor across the street from us and she and I have been walking the neighborhood in the evenings. The neighborhood is 1/2 mile around, so we make 4 laps to give us 2 miles. This week we are going to add another 2 laps. And 2 other ladies in the neighborhood have asked if they could start walking with us so they are supposed to start tomorrow. :)

Well its time to do some shop updating.

Now y'all don't forget to remind me about the pics. ;)

Have a great Monday all!

Big Huggs..
