weekend

So, I must say, the previously mentioned barbecued hamburgers kicked off a great weekend. Saturday morning was spent collecting supplies at our second home, Lowes. We then came home and got straight to work. the majority of the day was spent painting and replacing a ton of electrical outlets and plate covers. Nothing dates a house like beige outlets. Eww. While he was at it, Peter also rewired many of our switches, so they now actually turn something on. Overall, we were very productive. Here is a pictorial synopsis....

True to form, the multiple paint samples

Paint is done! Up next wall art, accessories, and baseboards...

This was only one bag. There were more.




There is a fabulous 50's light fixture, that came with the house, above our breakfast table. It moves up and down and I knew I couldn't part with it. So I covered the ugly antique brass with oil rubbed bronze spray paint. I think it looks great! Very dark, almost black so it blends nicely with the table, curtains, and other accessories in our family room.

Whats better than Sunday afternoon baking?

Back to work tomorrow....boo
