Lightening up and a shout out to Craig


Long time no blog! Let me explain - A wild pack of Alpacas came out of nowher... er, ah the dog ate my homewor... Okay seriously, I've been ridiculously busy. Enough said. Blogging is very fun but unfortunately the first to go when my days get too full. That being said, I'm glad to be taking a moment to write and do enjoy it! Thanks for checking back in!

In our spare moments around here we've been doing some upgrades to our seen-better-days-family-room-furniture and have brightened up our main floor with some much overdue paint! Ah, feels so much fresher in here! And in the process has provided some fun projects and of course spawned a few new ones that I can't wait to do... and blog about!

Plus, Chef Kev will be back with some new creations too ;)

Okay, so first off I paid a few visits to my friend (you may know him) Craig Slist. If you don't, check him out, he's got a great website. Via our friend Craig we got a new (to us) love seat, coffee table and leather club chair! I've got some big plans for the coffee table and folding side table you see beside Mr. Leatherson. Fun. Fun.

Exit old upholstered chair "redecorated" by cats and dog. Hello new club chair. Have a seat? Don't mind if I do...

Good bye old hand-me-down coffee table. Hello new coffee table with storage that will make a repeat appearance on this blog in the near future... So nice to welcome you to our home...

And last but certainly not least we said 'See ya' to the avacodo green matte and glossy vertical stripes done by a previous owner and said 'oh yeah we did' to some new, light, creamy, airy paint. We also have some big plans for these rooms - hint: panelling, black accents... all to come later. She's coming together and looking very nice!

So that is what we've been up to. It's been busy around here yet we've had time for some upgrades. More to come but wanted to pop in and say 'hi'!


  1. Okay, Elaine. I can't believe it has taken me this long, but I finally started reading your blog. I love it! We're in the middle of renos in our new house too, so I'll be perusing your blog for ideas. Wish you could come help me choose colours!

    LOVE the new chair and coffee table.
