... at least for the last eighteen months. Just some pictures that are making me happy.
Here's what our bathroom used to look like:
And here's what we made it into (I use the royal "we", Phil did all of this. Clever man, my hubbie!):
Here's what our entrance way used to look like:
Oooh, so eighties ;). And now:
I hate to think about how much of my time went into painting this house. It was an awesome job! The problem with beautiful old houses is that the walls are so tall due to the high ceilings. Then you throw in picture rails and mouldings and it takes some time to paint all that! But it looks absolutely awesome now, and we've taken a dark old house and made it light and airy.
And some little details. Lots of texture:
OK, I know I have a RAK to announce. I also have some recently published LOs to share. I promise, I promise. Next week.
Thanks for the birthday wishes. My little boy gave me a wonderful birthday present - he slept all night (hasn't happened all week!) and then actually "played" at childcare in the morning (instead of just wailing!). He was quite calm when I arrived to pick him up. Of course, the crying started again as soon as he saw me. But he happily waved goodbye to everyone as we left and was chirpy (even hyper!) all afternoon. So happy about that.
Well, he's at his grandparents' today and tonight. Phil and I are off to a 40th birthday bash at a poshy hotel, and don't plan on an early night :D. My first night out for ages! And Jamie's first night staying at Grandma and Grandad's. I just hope he sleeps through the night.
