I'm gonna have some extra landscaping to do...they were nice enough to level this out with some extra dirt, seeded it, and covered it with straw. But there are some holes now that will need some planting come spring. But over all we are really pleased. I just wish it hadn't been raining so I could sit out and enjoy it for awhile.
I finally finished the last of my preparations for one of the guest bedrooms. It is now officially ready to be occupied by my wonderful mom. I got the yellow cabinet painted and properly distressed and I added a new lamp. I'm pretty okay with how everything looks. I'd like to do some more tweaking but this is as good as it's gonna get for now. (click on the picture and check out that lamp) got it at Home Goods and it's really cute!
One of these days I'll tone down that "too yellow" paint...but dang I REALLY hate painting! I keep hoping that as I get older and my eye sight fails...I won't notice the BLARING yellow!
If you're wondering what the large blob under the quilt in the corner is.....It's the putrid crunchy chair from Hell. Yes I said "crunchy" the fabric is so old that it makes a crunchy sound when you sit on it. It belonged to my hubby from his bachelor days. It's actually the only thing left from that prehistoric period...well except for his 20 year old alarm clock. One day I'm gonna find the perfect chair for that spot...until then ...this monstrosity remains shrouded.
