Manic Makeovers

15 Aug

Happy Manic Monday!

For me, it should be called, Manic Makeovers.

Jamally and I took three days off last week and rather than eat ice cream cones in the park, I put us to work.*

First: our living room:

Before (well, During, as my memory card decided to erase all my photos)





I’ll post up more photos once we get pictures and curtains up. But we like the colour as it brings warmth to the room. The colour is Benjamin Moore’s Boardwalk.

While Jamally painted, I refinished our coffee table.


The top coat is STILL drying, and once I get the hardware back on, I’ll post some ‘after’ photos.

The Good News? I. love. it.

The Bad News? I’m pretty sure Jamally wants to move out after all this.

Now it’s back to the grind as I hammer out a loooong to do list today.

*Note: Jamally did golf five days in a row.

Have a great week!

Today’s Question:  When you go on holidays, do you work on the house, or take the time to relax?

    So purdy!!

    How did the man of the house (i.e., Tux) cope while you made over the living room?

      P.S. 5 days of golf! You are a patient wife. 🙂

      Tux was VERY patient, as we painted and refinished and he (mostly) managed to stay out of the way.

      As for my patience as a golfer’s widow – I keep saying that around the house, but no one listens!
