Hi everyone, I hope you enjoyed a wonderful holiday weekend!
It has been crazy busy around here over the past week, so I thought I'd take a moment to get y'all caught up on what has been going on at 21 Rosemary Lane.
the beginning of last week Grace had a lacrosse game and they won. Yeah!!!
I created this fun faux magazine cover using a pic from the game and my favorite editing site PicMonkey.
Then on Wednesday Grace had her spring orchestra and band concert.
Ice cream after the concert topped off the perfect end to a lovely May evening of music .
Also last week I started my next furniture project for the guest bedroom makeover. This is a piece I purchased along with a coordinating mirror about 3 years ago at a yard sale down in Pa. I knew at some point I would be changing the one bedroom on our main floor from the kids playroom back into what it was originally meant to be, a bedroom.
I am this far with the project...
...and still plugging along.
Also, over the holiday weekend Mr. RL, the kids and I went down to the shore as my dear friend Donna and her hubby just purchased their dream beach home in Brigantine New Jersey.
Darling little bungalow isn't it? Here is the view from her back windows.
We spent a majority of our time painting, putting together a loft bed and grill, and made about a half dozen trips to Lowes and Home Depot.
But we did have some time to soak in the beauty of the sea shore...
and catch a sunset.
The previous owners of the home left a lot of furnishings, including two twin beds in the mix. I really wanted twin beds for the bedroom make over, so guess what I inherited...yup twin beds WITH...headboards.
I am going to paint them to match the dresser.
This is my inspiration room, I love the dark color of the headboards against the mint color walls.
So that is pretty much it!
Tomorrow I hope to be headed for the Mansion in May tour at the Blairsden Mansion in Peapack New Jersey.
I will share that with you later on in the week.
Hope you are all recovering well from the big kick-off weekend of the summer season, and wishing you a supercalafragilistic week!
