We are so fortunate to have a nice, long break during the holidays. Though it is so tempting to spend a week watching episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians on OnDemand, or snuggling my days away with Lucy on the couch and Pinterest on my iPad, I tried to make this one count by crossing some items off of my home and decor to-do list.
Painting our kitchen has been on the list for about 2 years (wow, that's a bit embarrassing!). Having finally decided on a color, my mom and I tackled painting it earlier this week. More to come on that re-do!
Gosh, I am so glad to have gotten rid of that view!
In much less exciting news, another thing that was really overdue was painting the baseboards, trim, and radiators on the whole first floor. The previous owners were... less than careful painters, and we have done our fair share of painting, and so all of the white trim has smears of wall colors of the past and present on it. What a mess! I knew that it just needed a fresh coat of white paint, and so after we did the kitchen walls, I just kept painting, and did it all in a few phases during the week.
