Can you spot the awesome?
A new door!!
It opens and closes with a simple turn, a flick of my wrist!
I no longer have to riot kick the front door to get inside!
Just look at how sad and pitiful the old door is...
Never does he look more attractive than when he is making improvements to our home...
I love his "i'm barely tolerating you right now stop taking pictures" face
He also got started on the baseboards and trim but we're not quite done with that part yet. Can you believe we're already on the last step? Also the cat decided this was an appropriate thing to do...
thanks Lo-Mein I really love sawdust all over the house.
I've been busy too! I can't always help with the construction part. Not that I'm not willing; I do get busy with a paintbrush! But these children always NEED stuff. Like food and water and attention. So its almost a waste of time for me to get started on something since I'll have inevitably leave him hanging when Ivy needs to eat or Gwenie wants me to play or read or talk to/with her. So instead I spend his money. Just kidding. But not really...
What I really do is make the important decisions like what couch to buy and then spend hours researching and reading reviews to make sure we're getting a good deal-so really I'm SAVING money right?! All for you baby. Its all in how you look at it.
Then I put all my ideas together in a handy mood board and say "Look. This is what I want." and he replies. "Looks Fantastic. Whatever you want my darling queen. I especially love that $400 mirror."
what? Its TRUE!
Ok its not-I'm way to cheap for a $400 mirror.
This is what I have in mind for our living room, design wise.
Mood-or-design boards are a great place to start in any room and they give me a solid direction so when I'm out shopping for the actual items that will come live with us I'm not distracted by all the pretty, shiny and totally unrelated to our actual plan, things. I'm a sucker for good advertising...
