Happy Hump Day!

Jumping all over in this post just to fore-warn you:)

As I said earlier, I am re-painting our guest bathroom. I got the priming done (which looks horrible by the way!) and I’m so ready to paint the real color! This is the current state of disarray that the bathroom is in. Hopefully I can get the khaki on there soon because I am not loving this lightish/blueish/whiteish color that’s going on.

While I worked on the bathroom, David was braving the heat cutting OSB board to go in the attic. We've still got a lot of misc boxes with stuff that needs to go into storage but there wasn't anything up there to set it on. Now there is!

Oh and we also bought some Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint and I am going to attempt to spray our dining room chandelier. It’s currently brushed nickel which is actually pretty nice, along with our kitchen knobs. But our new fan is ORB and so are our 3 main locks that we replaced. But the rest of the door knobs in the house are a lovely goldy brass. If the chandelier turns out good I hope to spray everything in the house to match! So we shall see…I’ve seen it done on several of the blogs I read and it would be sooo much more cost efficient to buy a few cans of spray paint instead of mountains of new hardware.
Got my Salt & Pepper signs hung too. The ones I got from Hobby Lobby. It took me a while to decide where to put them because I’m running out of kitchen wall space, but I think I’m pleased with where they ended up.

When we got our new bed at the end of last year, I got two big pillows for decorations that needed shams. Shouldn’t be hard to find, right? Well since it’s taken me over 6 months to find them, I’d say it is. Hardly NO-ONE carries white, simple, king shams. I’ve checked Sears, JCPenney, Macy’s, Target, Wal-Mart, Bed Bath & Beyond, Pottery Barn, The Company Store, EVERYWHERE! I couldn’t find any and if I did, they were easily $50 each or sold out. Dang! So it got to the point that every store we went into that sold bedding we were looking for shams. Well 8 months later we finally found some! On our trip to Kohl’s last weekend I found only TWO left and they were on sale, SCORE! I need to wash them before I put them on the bed but unfortunately the light load was already done so I have to wait til this wknd when laundry is done again. I can’t wait to see them all put together!
