Oh Joy!

Well, it all started with a foot/leg going through our ceiling. A noticable water ring stain on the drywall ceiling, lead to the discovery of a blocked dryer vent.



I figured since the guys were here anyway, why not make some changes in this house. You must understand this: My husband grew up in a house full of women. Stylish, classy women. Women who love to shop, decorate, know what colors go with what, could tell you the difference between a slate blue and a navy and WHAT makes them different.
That said, when I want to make some changes in our house, he ALWAYS has a say. ALWAYS. And I get veto'd a lot. A LOT. So, I rarely even bother. Well my friends, the time has come. After 14 years of marriage, I'm stickin' to my guns. Wish me luck. Lots of wine may be consumed.

We are re-doing our mudroom. OH JOY!

Before:

See that sink? Yeah, we never used it. It actually was a wonderful place for lots of empty boxes. Piled to the ceiling. Never broken down. The closet? Couldn't get to it because there was so much CRAP in front of it.

During: We are going to get some wainscoting, and put that up against the walls. So we hired our amazing handy-man Mike...and he got to work. The shelves so far look amazing...and I'm in love. However, I'm ready to get my house back in order. This is it so far! I'll update again once it's all done. Yipee for a new mudroom!!
