Feeling Discouraged

This will be a bit of a pity party post, sorry.  I’m discouraged about our dining room.  And I’ll go ahead and tell you that we have turned it into an office, so there, the secret is out.  :) I REALLY wanted gray, as that is what I am loving at the moment.  But will […]

All You Wanted to Know About Gray Paint

It’s a very tricky color.  I could end this post with just that line and that would give you enough information.  But, I won’t do that to you and will tell you another little paint journey I just had. Maybe I should rename this post “when bad things happen to good people.”  Because I am […]

Do You Notice Anything Different…

About this picture? If you guessed that my chairs are missing you’d be correct.  I sold them on Craigslist for a nice chunk of change. :)  I did keep one chair just because they are SUCH great chairs.  I can always cover it.  I still need to sell the table. Remember when I said I […]
