Ack! I haven't blogged for 10 days! Did you miss me? :)
I have been missing in action, lost in remodeling our home. My husband and I realized that was the correct term for ripping out 700 square feet of ugly tile and carpet, and getting the floors ready to have wood laminate installed. Here's a pic of me happy about chipping out the old tile.
I'm pretty excited about all of the changes. We're not completely done--just some finish work left, but I love my new floor and paint!
I hated my old tile. It was white with flecks that looked like dirt, so my floor always looked dirty--it was, but I don't need help to make it look that way with 4 kids running around!
RIP IT OUT!
My walls didn't have any color, so my hubby and I remedied that by purchasing 5 different gallons of Martha Stewart paint that was on close-out from Home Depot. Here's a pic of the kitchen in action with the ugly carpet still in the hallway.
My favorite is the kitchen, which we painted in Arrowroot (kind of a green with blue tone) and Sisal (a warm cream color).
Below is a picture of my new living room with one of my favorite prints. I saw the real-life painting at the Tate Gallery in London when I went there on study abroad during college. It's called "The Lady of Shalott" by John William Waterhouse
Here's a sneak peek of the floor in that room!
I have some neat things planned for my blog, and I'm hoping the stars will align so I can get it all done and share with you.
So glad to be back! What have you been up to?
