Renovation City

Posted on May 9, 2011 by in Blog | 0 comments

It’s been renovation city around here the past few days (and by renovation I simply mean a coat of paint here, a new curtain there… basically, a much needed face lift for our home).  While my husband has been going all out in the back yard (more on that later), I’ve been focusing more on things like painting, sewing, and re-doing the floors in the kitchen (more on that later as well).

Our bedroom was the one room in the house that I was pretty happy with, except for some ugly lamps and a slightly tattered duvet.  I found this awesome tapestry from Urban Outfitters (we almost chose this one, which I also love) and paired it with a bright green sheet from IKEA to make a new, cheerful duvet for our bed.

In case you’re wondering where the lamps are… I took them outside to spray paint them canary yellow and was bested by wind and rocks.  Sad, but true.

The coolest part of this process: learning how to sew a button hole with my sewing machine!  Seriously, so so fun.
