Around the house update.

Our home project posts are pretty much nonexistent these days.  I think the bathroom did us in.  You may remember this post where I talked about wanting new bedding for our bedroom (yep, it was from May).  I finally got 'er done about a month ago.

I was inspired this picture I found on pinterest.

I was looking for an accent color and just loved the coral.  Maybe not John's favorite but we've been married long enough now that he knows I'm not going to go for navy and hunter green. Ha.

So I found a new quilt at Ross for a steal and made some new shams.  John even helped me hot glue some coral ribbon onto our lampshades.  What a helper he is.

Still need to line the drapes behind the bed so that the offset window behind them isn't so glaringly obvious.  I want some more coral in the room too.  Needs more color.  At this rate I'll probably get that done in 2013.

A few months ago John stripped the deck so we could re-stain it.  The main areas are done but all the rails and exterior are not.  Now that it's cold and wet who knows when that will get done.  It's looking good though!

This weekend I finally did a quick sewing project I've been putting off for over a year.  In 2009 I made us stockings.  I bought enough for 4 since we were trying to get pregnant.  Lucky us I got pregnant the month after I made them and now (2 years later) we have a matching set.

Still missing a fireplace though.  Next time.  You hear that honey?

When we bought our house we each had a stipulation. Jason wanted drywall (no plaster walls) and I wanted a fireplace. We didn't get the fireplace. :(
