Happy Anniversary

This week is Bubs and my 3 year anniversary! Yes, I know that may not be a big deal for some but it is huge for us! I couldn't be happier in our relationship! We did dinner and gifts last night! Of course it brought on a new project for us, corn hole boxes! Those will be built in the next few weeks in time for summer cook outs! And yes that was my gift to him. While I got the best gift ever, a DVD of pictures chronologically over the past years. A tear. Thanks love, here's to many more!!!

Bathroom... Darkened

We have had this paint since we first moved into the house and just now got around to painting. It's a continuous process of decorating. I am very happy with the results and glad we waiting until now. That way we had time to forget how annoying painting can be!

The new color of Forest Green for the room that matches the tiles in the shower. Now I need white towels, a new shower curtain long enough to raise the rod and an Amy Butler shower curtain. So, not finished but finally painted!

You like? Such a small space pictures are hard to get. And yes we went for a dark color for a small space, but I like it!

1/2 of the chairs FINISHED

I finally finished the chairs for the dining room! I love the pattern with the green!
Bubs and I started working together by taking the cushions off and measuring the fabric. Which did not go well, apparently we do not work well together, I a bit bossy and him at a loss of words. So after we narrowly cut the fabric and managed to fit all four seats within two yards of cloth we started stapling. And then the stapler broke... so a week later and a new stapler I completed the cushions. Bubs finished the chairs by reattaching the seats and now... we have seats again!Notice the sewing machine sitting and waiting for the next set of chairs! Thank goodness I have left over fabric to practice!!!
I love the two patterns together!! What do you all think?? Any suggestions?

YardSale Find

Making this a quick post, but had to get pics up of the new couch. This 1920's beauty is slightly smelly but gorgeous! It was recently reupholstered in a rich blue with a small flower pattern. I was given extra fabric so I can make an ottoman when I find the perfect stool. I think it goes great with the rug. I am so excited about this guy, now I just need some pillows and cable in the nook. As of now it is set up for old school Nintendo only. I have been febreezing it daily and keeping a candle lit but I still smell a hint of attic. Oh well it's such a beaut!

Bubs tried sitting in the couch every which way and we rearranged the room a few times... and may still switch things around. Still pondering the setup of the room, any ideas? But for now its working.
