Day 241

Should I continue to count the days in my post heading?  We've moved in, so I'm not sure what I'm counting now.  We still have lots of things to do, so there is no end in sight for the home DIY projects! 
Jason will not be pleased that I posted this picture, but I think it is important to illustrate.  This is our former kitchen/laundry area.  After it was no longer needed as a kitchen, it became a dumping ground for everything.  When we first moved in, I had everything organized, albeit cramped, but over time it became this door blocking pile of boxes, shoes, instruments, books, you name it.  
AHHH!  This picture makes me feel peaceful just looking at it!  This took me the ENTIRE weekend! 
It still has elements of storage as you can see, but now it is tamed into submission! 
The rug looks great in the living room!  We couldn't put it down right away because the floor guys recommend waiting over a week to put rugs on newly finished floors.  I think it really ties the room together!  Any excuse to quote the Big Lebowski makes me very amused, but I actually agree with that statement. 
We've moved into the bedroom upstairs!  These are the blackout curtains I made.  We are not morning people, so the blackout part is important.  I still need to hem them, as they are pooling on the floor and will become Tosca tumbleweed catchers, but I am happy with how they turned out so far! 


  1. At least, I know I am not alone in the world regarding photo #1. ;-) I, too, have worked on organization since airing my "dirty laundry" on the world wide web. But enough about me . . .

    Hello! Check out that gorgeous rug! I agree, it completes the room bringing all the elements together. And I love, love, love the curtains. Would you make some for me when you find time amongst work, life, and home? ;-)

    It all looks so lovely! I look foward to seeing it in person!

  2. Curtains are easy! I'll show you how to do it! Glad you like them ;)
