We had such a great weekend-- I hope you did!
Friday afternoon we were in the 80's, so sitting out and cheering for Blue for a couple of
hours was pretty great
We added 30 bags of mulch to the yard--we can declare ourselves 1/4 of the way through....yay
Maris and I went outside at 11:30 pm on Saturday night so we could check out the big moon.
Did you guys see it?!
Not a great shot, but it was my first attempt at not using a flash in pitch dark. And the
moon-- holy ridiculous brightness it was HUGE! My friend Penny took a much better photo at dusk
with the moon hanging over downtown.
I finished drawing/painting my bathroom walls with my knock-off Schumacher wallpaper
It took 7 Sharpies and a little craft paint. I'm super happy with the end results.
I also painted the ceiling in the bathroom. I mixed 50% blue wall color and 50% white. This is a formula
that I use a lot. It makes the ceiling feel taller by allowing the ceiling to appear to reflect the color
of the walls. This way there is no harsh 'end line' where the wall color meets a white ceiling.
I ordered my fabric for the bathroom shower curtain. It's nothing crazy--most of you have seen it,
but bottom line--it's inexpensive and it looks great with the walls. I'll wait until it's hanging to reveal it.
I have a mirror that I bought last year at this great little thrift store I flound while visiting my mom.
I'm thinking that after it gets repainted, it might find a new home in the bathroom. AND I searched for
some sconces and kinda fell in love with a pair of vintage ones I found on etsy. They are a little on
the tall side and they would need to be hard wired ....I am still pondering them.
Saturday brought lots of goodies from Fed-Ex. I have had fun opening all the great paint-by-numbers
that I have been buying for one of my clients bedroom. My ping-pong table has never looked so... painterly.
Mr. Fed Ex. also dropped off lots of new lighting pendants, lots of bathroom mirrors, lots of faucets,
and several vanity lights. They are ready to make it into their 'diamond in the rough'.
Throw in a baseball practice and a concrete countertop bid, and you are pretty up to date on our weekend!
