These past few weeks have been busy, mainly doing some indoor painting (because the weather has been nice and cool FOR ONCE!) and I had to get the entryway finally finished since it’s remodel which was in the spring (Oooops! laziness can sometimes get the best of me, but the summer heat wave did not help either :O ). I also wanted to spruce up my kitchen, was not happy with it’s former color of blue, I need a little more uplifting color in my life to make things a bit more bright and happy! Happy! Happy! So I went with a yellow, how uplifting is that, everytime I go in my kitchen now I can’t be more “Happier”. Maybe the cooking will be even better now, hahaha!
About a month ago I blogged about a major tree pruning and chopping that went on here and today was the day for “TREE PICK-UP”. This past weekend we dragged all those cut down branches to the curb! It was a lot of work, basically too0k us the entire day but am I happy to get rid of those things off my yard, was becoming an eyesore. I felt like I was living in the land of the dead forest. It amazed me that it took us about three days to get the trees pruned and cleared and these guys…
All done in less than 15 minutes! (the guys were not too bad to look at either). The pile was approx. 60 feet long and about 3m high. What was I doing wrong??!! LOL!
Anyways, glad it is all gone and finished with.
I think I will be done for this season for doing some landscaping changes. I may have a few things to get done before winter time arrives. But next spring I will be finishing up the front area and laying down my new plans for the front and side walkways (gardens) and finishing the front area, where the “greshem” and “Snowmound” were removed and replanted in their new homes (and seem to be doing quite nicely, except for a few of them that do not look so good, sniff sniff). There is just not enough time to get everything done, when you are doing everything else, right?
So today is another beautiful day, perfect temperature for heading out once again to get those chairs (chair) finished. I hate sanding, I absolutely HATE it! But unfortunately it is part of the process of making my vintage chairs “Gorgeous” once again. I want to get at least two completed by end of weekend. Some of the paint on them was so thick, ugh! it takes forever to sand them off, I am using a paint remover also, otherwise I may be doing this until next year! I am also looking around for some really nice fabrics to cover my chairs, not sure what I am decided on yet? But it will come to me.
So here are a few shots of my decorating attempts for the entryway, still have the door frames and baseboards to get on (lord knows when that will get done??!) and I am still on the hunt for 2 wall coat racks, just not finding what I want, so until something I see says “Buy me, you know you want me” I ain’t opening my wallet. I may even take a try at making one, I mean really? How hard can it be to make one? I say until you try it, you will never know…
A few shots of the Before and After looks, awwww what color can do
