Spring has sprung!

Hi Everyone,

I know… I know… this post is LONG overdue. We’ve been really bad bloggers lately. The past month (and a half) has flown by. I should have updated this along the way, and now I’ve fallen behind. Lots to catch up on…

So, here goes…

Craig had this old filing cabinet in his office. It’s an odd green color and sort of beat up. Nothing a can of spray paint can’t fix:

Here’s the after photo… please ignore all the wires behind the cabinet. And again, don’t look directly into the wallpaper:

Another small improvement we made is to the dining room. As you may remember, we lost the only lighting source when the old chandelier was moved to our bedroom:

Papa Naz came over to install this fixture he happened to have in the basement. You gotta love that!

Our dining room bliss was short-lived, however… All the melting snow on the roof, followed by the crazy storms we had at the beginning of Spring, created a leak in our roof… Right over the dining room:

Craig and I have been trying to keep up with the roof maintenance… but since it was neglected for so long before we moved in, it needs a lot of work. Our old slate roof is just not cutting it anymore:

We’re considering replacing the roof with standard asphalt tiles in black:

There’s a ton more to update, so stay tuned!!!

Makeover Complete!

Hi Everyone,

I’m sorry! I should have updated sooner, I know! After Saturday’s makeover/filming/photoshoot, we were EXHAUSTED! But I’m posting the final results now! What do you think?!?!

Here are Eddie and the photographer staging some detail shots:

Eddie took the old chandelier from our dining room and gave it a complete over-haul! We LOVE it!


Craig and I tried to stay out of everyone’s way the day of the makeover, so we didn’t actually get to take our own pictures until it was dark outside… you’ll still get the idea. Also, we moved in our old dressers… so if you hate those, you have to blame us.

Please ignore our temporary shades…those will be replaced with new blinds over the next week or so…

Now that this entire experience is over, we’re going through Eddie and Jaithan withdawals… I’m going to continue blogging about them so they feel guilty and keep visiting us!

Oh Christmas Tree…

Merry Christmas everyone!

Since Craig and I are still living out of the many, many boxes we moved with, the house is still in a state of chaos. No time for a real Christmas tree this year, which almost breaks my heart. This will have to hold us over until next year:

I think it fits in rather nicely with all the gorgeous wallpaper/wall coverings in the house, don’t you?

Hope you are having a wonderful Christmas!
