Another Summer, Another Project

This summer marks sixth year that we have lived in the house, which included raising 2 very active children, and visits from many of their friends. Naturally, after 6 years of "Hurricane Children", our walls looked, well, bad. And, we needed a change. Aaaaand, I needed a project to correct that hideous green I chose when I was pregnant. Whatever was I thinking?

In any case, the dining room was beautifully updated in Salmon (salmon run by Benjamin Moore, to be exact), and the upstairs sitting room got gorgeous pearl-essence stripes, compromise between hubby and me. I wanted wall paper. We are very pleased with the results. The sitting room looks much more distinguished and soothing, and the salmon completely brightened and opened up the dining room.

What to you think?

We found the "missing" house

Thanks to one of our readers, Robert, who identified the house on South Mountain Avenue.

I almost crashed into a tree while looking at it and can't believe I never noticed it before. It was right there. I mean, it looks exactly the same as in this photo. Right?

The funny thing is that I drive by the house almost daily. Which goes to show you just how many things go unnoticed in our lives...

Kids Bath: Electrical - DONE

Electrical - DONE, TOO! Yay!

However, he opened a hole in the wall in the wrong place above the mirror, so now that needs to be patched up tomorrow. That means an extra day tacked on. We really wanted it to be finished tomorrow. We are already 4 days over schedule. Ugh.

I. Need. This. Job. To. End.
