It has been a while on the posting and I thought I would share what I've been spending my time on. We decided that since my son is graduating high school (tonight even!) we would update the house a bit. It started with a few lamps out in the front room and quickly escalated to new laminate wood floors, new plumbing (loooong story that isn't the highlight of this tale), new toilets (22 year old toilets needed some updating), and ultimately new curtains, blinds and a few new pillows.

This is the family room. The lower half of the walls is Benjamin Moore's Revere Pewter. One of the most popular colors around. I wanted to go green (my favorite color), but saw these roman shades in Home Depot. Sold! The cornice above the windows were made by my dad 20 years ago when we moved into the house. The 10 year old Saint Bernard, Abby, would not move for my picture taking.
|Another photo to contrast. That plaid wallpaper was up for 20 years too!|
I'm so pleased with how things turned out. We have a fair bit of work to go through the upstairs and maybe some more updates. But for now, I'm heading to a graduation family getaway on Friday. Uploading photos for editing on the plane/trip and maybe I can catch up on some posts. Thanks for hanging in there with me during my time away. I hope your summer starts this week with a bang!
