getting things done

After being sick with bronchitis for a solid two weeks I was itching to get to some projects around my apartment I've been putting off while hibernating in my bed. Sunday we stayed in bed late, made brunch and I took a nap on the couch. When we finally got moving on some projects it was already dark, but that just means we can have cocktails while we work. St. Germaine and soda for me, and Moscow Mule for Rich.

One of our bigger projects that we made a start on is hanging some of my old National Geographic maps from the 40's, 50's and 60's. Its just really hard to find frames that fit, so Rich measured the ones we plan to use and we got started on a frame hunt.
Rich played some records while we moved on to another project
Finally painting the hutch! Taping up the wood and wearing a hat to hide my unwashed hair.
We painted and while it dried Rich whipped up some stir fry chicken for dinner.

Our Hoosier cabinet is really coming along, I'm so excited that we painted the panels pale blue. It makes the kitchen so cozy. I'd really like to paint some red stencils on there too at some point, but one thing at a time.

  1. hahahaha you're not a lush, having a cocktail makes doing house stuff so much more glamorous. also, that entire cabinet is filled with alcohol and glasses/tools for making drinks and cocktails...so...no judgment coming from this corner!


Thanks for stopping by!
