I Just thought I'd share a few little projects from my home lately. I wish I had more time to give more detail, but for now this is a "drive-by-blog-post". Our weather beaten front door got a nice fresh coat of high gloss black paint a couple days ago and I can't stop staring at it. Is it weird that I totally open and close my door for no reason other than to look at the paint? Oh, and I also do the same to freshly organized closets...I stop and oogle at the organization-porn. Weird, I know.
The dining room got a new paint color as well ("Olive" by Farrow and Ball) and I'm 80% happy with it. I wish it was a little more punchy green as opposed to a muted gray green, but oh well. Maybe next year I will paint again. I kid you not, this is the THIRD paint color in the past two years that these walls have seen (again, weird. I know). I just can't seem to nail it. However, it's been getting rave reviews from visitors. It honestly does look better in person. I also added a blue and white plate collection as well as an old mirror (painted BM China White).
The window seat (aka: the glorified cat bed) got a crisp white cushion as well as some of my random throw pillows from around the house.
The dining room chairs also got a nice new ikat on their seats. This fabric makes me happy.
The hydrangea are in full bloom here. Oh, how I LOVE me some hydrangea blooms!
We also got rid of the dated track lighting that used to be in our kitchen.
We replaced them with these pendants from Pottery Barn. I just realized I have the wrong size bulbs in them. Oh well, add that to my to-do-list!
Grayson has been my little helper in the garden recently. He loves to "plant" flowers in his very own pot (aka: make a huge mess in the dirt).
More details later...
