A little bit of this, A little bit of that...

Lots of little things going on around my one BIG project.

Mom & I went to IKEA...and I must say again that I love, love, love that store! I found these lovely pillows..

And they look good here:

Peeping out from the bench at my breakfast table.

Onto editing, I've been looking around the house lately and reassessing.  I have done a whole lot of purging. I had way too much on the walls in the dining room and I took some of it down, cleared some clutter & organized.  It feels so good to get rid of stuff and organize!  I gave this little table a job too...

First, it needed a little dressing up & some polish.

Much better..sanded & polished top with a simple coat of white on the legs.  (I used the flash to show the pretty wood top.

Here it is now as our little cocktail station. Nothing major but it's portable & organized & purposeful.

Before I wrap this post up I gotta show our progress on the beast of a bookcase...

Beadboard is up!  Since taking this picture I have primed this section, caulked it & have one coat of paint on it already.  

You can see where I'm mudding in the paneling in this one area (and all the paint swatches).  I really don't want to sheetrock around all these corners for such a small area, so I'm making myself miserable in a different way.... filling in paneling grooves on one wall.  The den is a nice sized room and we're going to rip out the paneling and hang sheetrock.  I totally dread doing that but in the end it will be nice...at least that's what we keep telling ourselves.  Onward & upward!

Have a good day!!


  1. Okay, I hadn't understood your reference to filling in the paneling grooves until I read this post. All is made clear :) What a job! But everything looks like it's coming together. Well done!

  2. You have been so busy. What a difference you are making!
