BEFORE and AFTER

New Curtains

 We finally got curtains for our back door.  The sun beats in through this window and it makes perfect sense to have curtains, but for some reason I always thought curtains would make this area look messy and crowded.  Turns out to be the opposite!  Now that we have the curtains up the room actually …

Rocking Chair

Months ago I bought a rocking chair for Emmett at a swap meet that I was planning on re doing.  Then at least a month ago I bought the material to cover the chair, and then as most projects go I did nothing.  I had too many art projects going on so the chair went …

 A small update I made was to spray paint this air conditioner white, it was so ugly before. Its not perfect now but at least it doesn’t stand out as much as it did.  Below is the new sink top sitting on top of the cupboards before we stained them.  The old top was horrible …
