Where I've Been

June was very busy. I did some knitting, but mostly I was working on changing this:


to this:

And this:

to this:

We removed wallpaper, painted, removed carpet and refreshed the wood floors.

We bought some nice curtains at Ikea and this weekend I'll work on hemming them.

Next post will have knitting content, promise!

WOW! The place is looking fantastic! Having just gone through ALL of that myself last January I know how much you are going through. I'm amazed you have time to knit at all!

Of course I was in a rush to get out of my sister's basement when I was renovating, so I had fires burning till midnight or later, sometimes on work nights too. Isn't it amazing what a coat of paint *or if you like some rich colors like I do, several coats of paints* can do to a place!

Hey, I think your previous own shopped at the same paint store as my previous owner! I'll have to remember to bring my before photos on Monday and you can see the pink I couldn't wait to cover up! A pink fireplace *boggle* My sister and I have a saying for things like that... "At what point did THIS sound like a good idea???" *giggle*

I really love the green in the dining room!

Oh forget... I have been looking for one of those blow up punchable clowns!!!! I joke with my assistant at work all the time that I want one of those to keep in my office!

Any idea of where I can find one???

Super nice job! I especially love the sage green paint on the walls. The one with the fireplace. What color is that/brand? So soft and pretty.
