happy labor day, everyone!
well, we survived the first summer in our new house -- it absolutely FLEW by. now that the season has officially ended, i'd like to share a recap of these past few months. i'm really proud of all that we accomplished!
to begin with, there was a LOT of painting: the main floor bathroom, the upstairs hallway, the stairway up, the chalkboard wall in the kitchen, the polka-squared dining room, the upstairs bathroom, the pink-turned-blue room, and fish's study (which i didn't write a post on, but am still including in this tally).
outside: we took small steps to improve the front porch by painting the front porch railing, adding a couple of chairs, building a table, and installing new house numbers.
fish didn't have much time for major projects due to his intense work schedule, but he was able to make a work bench, a porch table, an outgoing mail organizer, and a pencil holder for my beloved pastels.
slow progress is being made on K's bed!
lastly, we got a lot of small projects done: turning the built-ins into shoe storage and adding moulding, revamping an old dresser and a craigslist credenza...and decorating every switchplate i could get my hands on!
i'll be happy if we get even half this much accomplished in the fall.
thanks for sticking with us this far!
