Are you tired of house pics yet? No one is here today! The painter was supposed to come but backed out due to the snow. Yea. It is nice to have a bit of peace and quiet. And to sit on the couch, reading emails, knitting, blogging without anyone looking at me.
Here is the latest on the kitchen. I forget what color green we chose but it is a bit more yellow then I remembered but it is bright and cheerful. The drawer fronts have been changed and we were able to get our cup pulls on. The dishwasher panel arrived yesterday but we all realized we should have had a dummy drawer on top of the dummy cabinet. I love saying dummy. No problem says our kitchen guy. I really like him a lot.
This refrigerator fits properly. Why didn’t we believe everyone when they said stainless steel was hard to keep clean? Do you see Scooby getting in on the action? He’s such a goober.
I think this is a better picture of the dining room color. Owen’s artwork is on the opposing wall. The color is called Quincy Tan and it is from Benjamin Moore’s Historical Colors. All the colors we chose are from that group. I love them. I am saving my money for a new dining room set.
Last we have the closet in the foyer. Kevin and I worked on this organizer over the weekend. Granted he did most of the work–I just read the directions and handed him the little pieces. I know the shoe organizer takes up a good bit of room but it is worth it to me–the kids shoes (and ours) are everywhere! Now we can each put 4 pairs in there. Plus room for guests! Can you tell it’s the smaller things that make me happy?
I have been working on Kevin’s hat in the alpaca–uncertain 96 stitches on a US 7 is enough for his big head. I have to whip up a scarf for Cameron’s holiday fair. And I am considering 6 hats for Owen’s teachers and assistants. Someone tell me I am nuts. But the parents have decided to pool money for a gift and that’s just not personal enough for me. I can’t do candles. Or mugs. Or picture frames. I think I need an intervention!
