Halloween Eve!

Now...I didn't get to do ALL the things I wanted to do for Halloween
BUT we shall still have some fun!
Today I need to work on finishing some things for our costumes.
I also need to clean the house then make it dirty again by decorating LOL!

We will be having a small family costume party/dinner.
Halloween is usually boring so I decided to make an effort to have some fun this year!

Sher and I will make these goodies tomorrow:

Also to make are some "lady fingers"

Also on the menu will be ribs, purple potato salad, moldy bread and clotted tea..
LOL Hopefully it will all work out well.

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday! I can't wait to hang out with my family, act like dorks and scare a few trick or treaters! hehe

Chair Face Lift

We originally had 4 of these little chairs but over the years 2 fell apart!
They have served us a place to sit and eat our meals, as stepping stools, etc.

They have however acquired too many scars, lol...
Such as: different color paint splatters, joint compound splatters, scratches...on and on..
So I decided to give the last two left a little face lift! I sanded them down a bit and painted them with some leftover paint I had that was used in my art/craft room.

Ta Da!
Here are the freshly painted chairs:

This color just makes me happy.
I WAS going to give them a little sanding around their edges to warm them up a bit, but something tells me that will happen naturally...
I bet by December they will look nice and broken in! haha

One small project I get to mark off of the long list!
Woo Hoo!

Our Bathrooms finally received a little attention
Here's the before of the hall bathroom:
Another shot:
Here's how it is now :0)
I painted the vanity black with red popping out a little underneath.
Made a new shower curtain, added some of my own artwork and painted the walls.
Sher actually picked this fabric out, he has good taste -I love that toile.

Here is our master bath, this is the only before I have.
It's not exactly done though, there is SO MUCH we need to do to it such as:
Raise the super low vanity, new sinks, new floors, well...NEW EVERYTHING ALMOST LOL

But for now we added a window mistreatment and a painting done by me..
To help it become a nicer place to be...
We have one more powder room to go..we have some cool plans for it too so hopefully it'll all work out well..
The dining room is under construction also now..curtains are done -chandelier is up and now we are in the process of designing and building a mirror for the space! Hopefully soon I will get to share that with you ..chairs are also on the "to do" list -so fingers crossed on those! :0)
