At the end of the summer I usually post the fun things we did, trips we took and so on. This year however, I decided to take a look at some of the projects completed during the summer of 2014. Oh but first let me update you on my vacuum cleaner situation.
It has been resolved and I finally picked up my Miele this past Saturday. She is running beautifully and I was charged no more that the quote...sweet! The man I dealt with on Thursday when I ran over to pick up a loaner was very kind and apologetic for the entire situation, so that made me feel somewhat better. But to be honest, if I have any other problems with my Miele I think I am going right out to by a Shark! Many of you suggested the Shark vacuum and I actually had a chance to use one when my gal pal Pegs loaned me hers for a couple days. I loved the power of the suction and boy it really pulled stuff out of my carpet I would have sworn was not there. So thank you to all who took the time to volunteer your advice...it really made me feel not so alone.
OK now lets get down to my project list. Starting in June I shared with you...
And then in the beginning of July I shared my
July was a busy busy month. I was down the shore helping my ever so wonderful bestie update her new beach home kitchen on a shoestring budget. The one job I was assigned to was to paint the harvest gold kitchen counter top to look like granite
I also began the project of repainting and redecorating our living room here at home. This
job is still in progress and I hope to share the reveal with you the beginning of next month. But in the meantime I did go a little stencil crazy with the walls behind our bookcases.
Then the beginning of August it was back down the shore to help finish up the kitchen project at Donna's beach bungalow.
Can you believe this transformation for under $2100???
(We even painted some of the appliances with liquid aluminium to look like stainless steel.)
I still have this beauty to paint for our living room makeover...
...and new window treatments for the room's bay window. Things are coming along slowly but surely.
Over the past weekend Mr. Rosemary Lane took on the task of painting the ceiling of our back patio. We still have to paint the studs and replace the screens. This project is kind of taking top priority because we want it to be ready to go for next spring, especially if it turns out to be an early one. (Fingers crossed)
It is going to be a gorgeous last week of summer for the kiddos so we are taking a few days and heading back down to the shore.
Hope your week is going swimmingly!
