Well, it has been another rainy, cold week end here in Alberta.....is summer going to come, before it is over!!?? I have been busy at the BnB though, and got the laundry room all cleaned up....oh, that was yesterday, I now have a new batch of linens from the BnB to do today!! Laundry. Have to say it is not my favorite!
I am getting ready to post to Debbie's CopyCat Party on July 1st. Check out her blog to see what it is all about, should be fun! So, I won't reveal all of my copycat project, but it involves the living room. Since I was busy taking numerous "get it right" kind of pictures I thought I could post a few from my living room.
So, come on in to the living room..
This little corner got a makeover when we redid the kitchen
Now, I have some nice display shelves.
I sometimes forget to take the "before" pictures !! So here, I was almost done with putting items on the shelves when I remembered. These shelves are just form IKEA, nothing special. Darrell put a crown moulding on the top to dress them up, easy little dress up trick. We've had these bookcases for a number of years and once I got them home, I didn't really like that awkward middled part!! We obviously have a pathetic CD collection, cause we can't fill it up! It just kinda sat there with nothing in it. So, it needed some help!
Until we had an "idea"....
Why not cover it up!! Like it wasn't even there in the first place!
The little chair on the wall was one that Darrell found at the dump a long time ago! When we re did the kitchen the little corner that it sat in was taken out. I didn't want to part with it, so thought why not put it on the wall! It serves as a little shelf and stacks nicely in line with some chairs we took out of the house that we flipped.
Shelves to display my love for white jugs, blue glass, books...
A little picture of Darrell. This was the first picture I saw of him, it was in my
brother's yearbook from Hillcrest Christian College, and I thought, "Hmmmm,,,what a handsome guy!"
So, thats what I have been up to on this rainy week end. Hope you all have a great week and thanks for stopping by the country! I am trying to break 100 followers, so if you haven't signed up to follow along, please do. :)
