projects a plenty

I've been excited to get to some of the projects that have been waiting for the wedding craziness to be over.  So this week I am...

  • Getting all Carson's fall/winter clothes from the last 3 years ready for consignment.  They are actually done - ironed, tagged, pinned, and hung.  If only I had realized that I forgot to REGISTER for the sale that starts next week!!  Here's hoping they'll let me register late!

  • Going through all of the baby stuff/girl clothes and getting Emily's closet organized.  I was longing for a little bit of blue in her pink room so I painted her closet blue and put up a new closet system.

    You're also going to get a little sneak peak of the colors in her room.  There's been a little bit of demo and a lot of hole patching so the painting has been taking forever.  Doesn't help that I'm adding some chair rail to the room.  It seems that I don't do anything the easy way but it's going to look awesome when's it's done (I hope!).

  • Our friends Gretchen & Jason (John's tuesday night video game date) gave us some bar stools that were taking up space in their garage.  I've been meaning to give them a little makeover to match our kitchen.  So last night I sewed new covers for the seats and tonight John's going to help me cut the legs down a bit (they are bar height and we need counter height).  Then they'll get some black spray paint and voila!  Almost free bar stools!
