bedroom ceiling lamp

By in Anna Says..., Inspiration & Ideas, Master Bedroom

Adam, here are a few photos of the ceiling lamp. The outside is plain white fabric, and the inside has a flocked damask print. The pattern shows through the outside when light comes through it. The overall measurement is 10″W X 10″H. Keep in mind that you’re going to have to buy a canopy/cord set […]

goodbye carpet part 2

By in Master Bedroom

It’s finally gone! It took about an hour and a half today but now I no longer have to look at that ugly carpet. The worst part of removing it was carrying it down the stairs, carpet is much heavier than it looks! I’m going to start skim coating the walls this weekend, once that […]

goodbye carpet part 1

By in Master Bedroom

I was able to get half of my bedroom carpet up today with the help of my mom. I was going to wait until the walls were done before I took the carpet up but I only have my friend’s dump trailer until the end of the week so we decided to get it up […]

freshly trimmed shrubs

By in Exterior, Lawn & Garden

My shrub maintenance man came yesterday to trim my shrubs! I love how they look when they are freshly trimmed. I used to hire out all my mowing and lawn work, especially last summer after I fell and tore a disc in my back (I was out of commission for a long time and I […]

off it goes

By in Upstairs Hallway

This dump trailer holds all the remnants of my upstairs hallway’s former self- ugly paneling, scrap lumber framing, drop ceiling tiles and the drop ceiling frame. I spent an hour and a half yesterday running up and down my stairs as I dragged it all out of my bedroom where I had been putting it […]

re-thinking old plans

By in Master Bedroom

So, I’m thinking of going back to my original idea of just working with the walls I have in my bedroom rather than putting up new sheet rock. It’s taking so long to figure out when I’m going to be able to do the drywalling that I feel like in all the time I’ve been […]

still here

By in Inspiration & Ideas, Life, Me

Sorry for the lack of posts this week. I went into the school where I work Wednesday for some technology training only to discover that construction involving my classroom that I was told would most likely not be happening yet has happened, rendering my classroom unusable (we are undergoing a huge capital building project where […]

almost done patching

By in Upstairs Hallway

I have been patching the upstairs hallway walls since Saturday evening and I am almost done. Thank you to Anna for suggesting MH Ready Patch because it is a dream! It goes on great and really fills in all those cracks and nail holes, and with the help of some fiberglass tape works great for […]

upstairs hallway light

By in Inspiration & Ideas, Upstairs Hallway

I’m thinking of this light for the upstairs hallway. I need something big and bright because it is dark up there. Plus the ceiling is about 10 feet high so I think I pendant light will look better than a flush light. Does anyone own one of these or have seen it in person? Let […]

chimney removal part 2

By in Chimney, Master Bedroom

The base after I broke through to the ceiling joist. Breaking out bricks. I look like a zombie from a coal mine. All that’s left is the metal support braces and wooden base. All that’s left. Day two of the chimney removal left me the base of the chimney in my bedroom to remove. My […]
