Three Day Weekend: Day 2!

We still did quite a bit of running around yesterday.  One more Home Depot stop to get the rest of our supplies, Dunks for our energy, Michael's for a gift, Target to poke around, and a good friends house warming party.

Despite that long list though, we were able to get all the materials and tools upstairs so we can start this morning.  We also got all the walls that will be painted primed.  Goodbye Terracotta walls!

It's freezing here this morning! Time for a hardy breakfast and a long day of work.  But the more we get done - the more we can enjoy seasonal May weather tomorrow.  Back in the 70s New England!

Three Day Weekend!

Checkout guy at The Home Depot last night to Matt "Well, based on what you've got here, I'd say your weekend is completely shot."

We're actually glad for the rainy cold weather we've been handed the next two days.  We saw a three day weekend coming our way and I wanted to take full advantage of the opportunity by tackling a big home project.

Let's look at the BEFORE shot before we start:

And I'm not sure if we shared this - but we had a blog friend of mine, Paige from Little Nostalgia make up a room design board from us.  I LOVE her taste and she's currently in design school.  This is what filled our car last night:

You can read the full description of Paige's design board here.  I still need to pick up a few things - like the blinds, a side table, and throw blanket but we have all the bead board and trim in hand along with new paint for the trim, walls, and wicker chairs.

We'll keep you updated on our progress as we move along this weekend.
Happy Memorial Day!
