Im really wondering why Im working today... seriously, who does that!? =) It gives me a chance to brag on my AWESOME husband though!
Last night I got home from work expecting an empty house (he was supposed to be working)
Instead I found this...
What is it you ask??
If you dont know what you are looking at... it is the beginning of a very beautiful thing. A thing I have been wanting to add to our house, to make it more of a "home" and less of a cracker jack box.
It is BOARDS AND BATTEN! WHOOOO!!!!!
I originally got the idea while watching the movie You, Me and Dupree. See the pretty siding in their bedroom?
I started researching and found it with a picture ledge, which I absolutely loved. I thought about it constantly. I knew I definitely
Well, low and behold, my husband is amazing!
Here is a tiny sneak peak of my "craft room" which in a month's time will be the nursery.
I cant give away too many secrets! I have to save something for my big reveal!
See the wonderful grey color on the walls? I LOOOOVE it. All of the new trim will be painted a warm ivory, not the builder white that the trim is currently painted. It all still needs to be caulked, primed and painted. Looks like I have a little work cut out for me over the break!
So I have a question to all of you decorators out there. When we paint the boards and batten in our master bedroom, we are going to go ahead and paint everything. We are tired of the whole brown thing in our room.
So what colors to paint it?The bedding is a natural color with black details... The curtains are going to go, because I just got new duvet and they dont match. Excuse the semi made bed, I didnt do it =)
If you remember, about a month ago I painted our bathroom this cream on cream stripe. So the bedroom needs to coordinate with that.
Im thinking something neutral, but I dont want all of the siding to look the same in the bedrooms. Would black boards and batten be too much?? Maybe with a natural color up top?
Oh yeah, here is my 30 week picture from last week.
My sister and I getting corny. Keating's auntie is very excited for him to be here if you cant tell!
And just for laughs. While shopping the other day, I spotted a "mustache gumball machine." For real, the thing only sold stick on mustaches... so we had to buy one and made Reece wear it. We are cruel, but we got a great laugh. Reece is obviously not a fan of the facial hair!
Happy Christmas Eve-Eve!!
