We got a lot done this weekend. We told the kitchen cabinet-maker to get real (more on that later), did some cleaning and even a few DIYs. A few days home will give a girl some energy.
First, our house was crazy dusty. It was sick. The Mister sanded the walls in our kitchen and had someone put drywall on the ceiling in our kitchen. (These things happened a few weeks ago.) So, the dust was plentiful. For example, this was The Mister after he sanded the walls.
He looks like a clown with his skin being pink from under the mask and everything else powder white.
Our dining room had the most dust due to its proximity to the kitchen and had become a holding room for kitchen essentials. These were our shelves.
So, we dusted the entire dining room and Windexed everything we could. Then, vacuumed and I mopped the wood floors. It feels pretty great. This week I’ll tackle the living room. I understand I’ll have to do this a few more times to really rid us of the dust, so I didn’t style the shelves and they’re acting as a pantry still, but it’s worth it. The Mister was so inspired he told that the light switch by our front door bothered him and he purchased an oversized plate for it.
Obviously, this is a temporary fix and we’ll have to sand the walls in our living room too – someday. We had to do it in our master bedroom and we’ll have to do it everywhere we repaint. Speaking of painting, I painted these recent finds from Goodwill.
I’m not sure what they were originally, but they will become trellises for some ivy. They were $3.99 and $5.99 at Goodwill. Score! I’ll share them later. Did you do anything fun this weekend? The weather was pretty great here, unusually warm, hence me deciding to spray paint.
