Next Up

11.29.2011

Hello there! How was everyone's long weekend? Next up around here...besides decorating for Christmas!!...is a small project for the kitchen that I've had in progress for awhile now. But I really want to push and get it done in time for our annual holiday open house party (which is the weekend before Christmas). Sounds pathetic, but for me this is ambitious!

Here's a really old photo of our kitchen. A lot has changed since then, most significantly the floors and those pendant lights over the island. See that art on the far wall next to the fridge (blank canvases wrapped in scrapbooking paper)?


They're coming down. And a little mini art gallery wall is going up! Here's a sneak peek of some of things that will be included.


I've still got to frame a couple of things and figure out the layout. And then make all the holes. I've got 3 weeks. Hold me to it, guys!!!

Anyone else trying to cram in some projects during this already busy time? Or are you just focusing on holiday stuff?

  1. Constantly trying to cram things in. I asked the hubby to add some molding to the guest bathroom before a non-holiday party next Friday:) It's always something! Best of luck!!

  4. You mean trying to cram things in during the holidays isn't something everyone does? I certainly have way too much on my plate - but I choose to do it that way! Your wall looks very fun!

  5. Blogging about something is the best way to hold yourself to a project! Can't wait to see what youve done. I'm trying to build K a dollhouse bookshelf before her first birthday, which is a month out! I know it can be done, quite easily in fact. But the motivation... :)

  6. Parties are the best way to meet deadlines and I can't wait to see how you've updated your kitchen. I reay want to see what you swapped out for the pendants. We had a great Thanksgiving hope you did too! Sheila has been eating us out of house and home.

  8. There's nothing like a party on the calendar to push you to get the "To Do" list completed, but don't stress yourself out, your house already looks amazing!
