Master Bedroom Painted Vanity

Happy Sunday!  Its a beautiful day here in Atlanta, although still chilly at least the sun is out.  I've been working on painting my cute vanity in the master bedroom this week and it was a good week to work inside and get something done.  Feels good to get this painted, so now it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb anymore.If you've been reading my blog awhile, you know that I got this … [Read more...]

The Guest Room Progress

We are plugging away here at our new house still working on areas a bit at at time. One of the rooms that I've wanted to get together was our downstairs guest room.  When we moved in we only had one bed and our new master furniture hadn't arrived yet, so we moved my old master furniture into the guest room, since that is where it is going to stay.  I have a Sleep Number mattress and we knew we … [Read more...]

It seems that every new house in normal subdivisions are always lacking in the interesting and unique lighting, doesn't it?Mark and I … [Read more...]

The Making of a Man Cave

We've been busy working away on the house and I know I haven't showed you a lot of progress yet in each space and with the exception of my office and Mark's man cave, nothing else is totally done.  Mark has almost finished hanging artwork in his space and he's really loving it, so I thought I'd show you where it started and where it is now.He's a little protective of his man cave and hasn't … [Read more...]
