Have an awesome Halloween! I'm sure Norm Abram feels the same.
I'm in love with that print! I have no idea where I would put it...but that doesn't matter, pansies are cute and they welcome you with their happy faces.
Has anyone seen it?
This awesome treehouse has been burnt into my brain and comes from Linda Aldredge of Lulu Organics featured in March 2008 Domino magazine.
Hopefully we will have some more building going on in our house. It's been quite rainy here and the dude does all of the wood cutting outside. Blah!
I think I finally figured out what netbook I'm going to order. I'll have to settle for one of the free wall papers that is offered on the HP/Boontje site for the new mini laptop. A girl can still dream though...
I've been dying to get one of those really cool radios for our kitchen. When I'm stuck in the kitchen, I can't see or hear the tv. Since we don't have a tv in there (yet) everyone leaves me in the kitchen by myself and I get sad. I'll now be a little happier when I'm in the kitchen because of the latest Christmas Tree gem:
Thank you Christmas Tree Shop for my knock off Tivoli radio!
Since we have an old house with very little insulation, there is really no point in turning on the heat until the weather channel has a super cold advisory and tells you to check on the elderly and small children. We normally try to go until December 1st before we turn on the heat. It's a test of will and warmth strategies.
The dude called his mother the other day, saying that I was trying to kill him but I told him that not turning on the heat is to get him ready for ski season.
I'm sure this lovely ski lodge in Falls Creek, Victoria, Australia has heat. Wish I was there...
I know the suspense has been killing you regarding what hardware was chosen for the cabinets. I went with the European pulls from myknobs.com. They were a great price with free shipping!
The linen cabinet is almost done. It just needs some bottom trim for the hidden compartment.
We decided to use these cabinets for clothes which will allow us to get rid of a dresser. Plans are still in the works for some mega shoe storage between the studs of another wall.
For the unfinished built-ins, we still have to paint the trim and the interior and put up cedar planking on the inside of the cabinet. Hopefully it will all be done by the end of the week!
For more pictures check out flickr. Stay tuned...I think this project will be done in a few days.
The whole project was made out of scrap wood and some mdf to replicate the moldings in our house. He fashioned a cleat system for it to hang since it weights a ton. The blackboard was made with a few coats of chalk board paint.
Hmmm, we still have some of the chalk board paint left over...
The fall project this year is going to be decorating/organizing the guest bedroom. Currently it's our main bedroom until we redo the upstairs and make it a 'master suite' (part of the winter plans). The guest room also serves as a sewing room, a place for my huge yarn collection and a junk yard.
So now that I've announced to blog land that I'm going to work on the guest room, I gotta get my act together! Yay, for blog motivation!
