How was your Christmas? Ours was incredibly busy as always, driving up and down I-5 to see family and friends and eating so. much. bad. for. you. but. tastes. amazing. food. Never in my whole life have I felt this DEMAND from my body to eat some freaking fruits and veggies dangit. Anywho, the day before we left for Christmas, we got busy in this little nook.
After it was demoed out, Avery came to spend her 3rd Birthday with us and I put this big girl right to work. Here she is SO excited to use that pink spackling stuff.
She took a break to play with Skip and bring me some towels to finish wiping up the floors in the nook.
While wiping, I noticed these lovely little notches of goodness that had been hanging out behind those ugly bifold doors. My idea is to cut out a chunk of the baseboard behind the machines and fill in this gap. LB is not so keen on that idea. If anyone know where this baseboard molding is from, PLEASE let me know. I need about 9 inches (all this drama for 9 inches).
Avery and I took off for Home Depot and ended up going with...Benjamin Moore Hale Navy. Spoiler alert: I am loving it.
All the spackling was dry and Avery was ready to paint.
We made about that much progress when this little bundle showed up! HI BELLE!!! The world's cutest distraction.
I played with Belle worked on other stuff, Sam and Avery got busy in the nook! Go girls!
I took a ton of pictures of it all painted so that you could get some sort of idea of the color. The light in here is just a yellow light bulb (add that to the project list).
On Christmas Eve as I was waiting for us to leave for the airport, I started stenciling... I think it is going to be adorable, but MAN OH MAN do I have all the thoughts about that adventure. You'll have to wait for those until 2015!!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
