Month: September 2013

I am really excited to show you how the dining room is coming together! It’s still not done but we’ve definitely made a lot of progress from painting the trim, doors and the walls, to adding beadboard wallpaper, changing out the light fixture and adding some new chairs!


Next week I plan on showing you the progress we’ve made in our dining room that includes our new chandelier and our beadboard wallpaper. I am really excited with how the dining room is coming together. I’ve also made a good bit of progress in the entryway but I am not as thrilled with how that’s coming together.

If you have been reading this blog for a while you know that I love silhouettes and I love my Silhouette machine! Somewhere between two and a half and three years ago my husband and siblings went in together and got me one for my birthday. I have used it over and over ever since I first took it out of the box for all sorts of different things.

Well, I finally went ahead and whitewashed the brick late one night last week. I held off doing it for the first couple of months we lived here because I just wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. The longer we lived here though the more I knew I wanted to go with something lighter for the bricks.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend! I am a bit behind on my posts but will be back soon to show you the whitewashed brick on our family room fireplace.  Most likely at some point tomorrow although possibly tonight!
