We miss Chloe. We are all anxiously awaiting the next time Sarah goes out of town.
Jay and I have been very busy the last two days working on our home projects. I feel that if I were to step into The Home Depot one more time they would probably offer me a job. I would have to decline though because orange is not my color.
I finished my chairs. I'm really proud of myself because I've never done anything like this before. I stained and reupholstered these chairs all on my own and I love the way they came out. Here are some pictures of the chairs(or as my daughter would say, "chers". It would probably be quite interesting if I showed you some pictures of Chers, but no, you get chairs.)
I love the stain color. I love the fabric. I don't think I'm going to let my family sit on them. And so help me if a cat scratches on them! Unfortunately I neglected to take a "before" picture so you are unable to fully appreciate the beauty of these chairs in comparison to the craptastic state they were in, but I was able to get the boy to hold a piece of the old upholstery for your viewing:
He looks really pleased to be participating in this doesn't he? He hates it when he has to participate.(As a side note: do you notice the bucket on top of the ac unit in the top left corner of the above picture? I use that to collect rainwater as it falls off the roof. I'm that much of a hippie environmentalist.)
I had planned on giving you a synopsis of the rest of our home projects in this post, but it's now 9:45 so I'll have to save that excitement for next time. Next up: the half bath and my reading nook.
