I am creating... I finally finished my kitchen curtains! Here they are:
Now, I'm going to make a little cushion for this window, since it's the little boys' favorite spot to sit when I'm cooking.
I 'm thankful for... Coffee! And a few million other things...
Around the house... I tried a paint technique on the lower walls of our dining room, but I'm not happy with it. I was trying a faux effect using a sponge and a buffing tool, but I'm worried it turned out too orange and too "busy." I need to figure out how to tone it down or maybe I'll just paint over it in taupe. For selling the house, I'm concerned I may need to go more neutral and conservative. Bother. But, relatively speaking, paint is cheap. Here are a couple of pictures. What do you think?
(You can see in the pic below, we're replacing a bit of trim over the door and some cracked wallboard on the adjacent wall)Before we try to sell, we're also redoing our kitchen and bathroom floors and moving our laundry room. I hate the risk of putting a lot of money into these projects, but I figure that if the house doesn't sell, I'll have a nicer house to live in, anyway. And except for the money spent and the pain and heart-ache of all the work and then keeping everything clean for showings, it's a win-win, right? Right? (Actually, I think we must be crazy.)
