Weekend Update

It's been a busy weekend! The Boy went fishing up north and took the camera with him, so I was left noticably camera-less this weekend (how I missed it!).

I kept myself busy on Saturday shopping with Mom and eating delicious steak and sundaes! Yum!

Yesterday I did this:


I finally painted my dining room shelves. And I am very happy with the results. Remember when they looked like this?

Before:


After:

And yes, I realize they are not done yet, I have to go buy wallpaper to back my shelves with. The worst part is that I thought I had it all figured out and now that the shelves are painted I'm not sure my pattern choice is any good. Shoot! Back to the paint store for more samples!

This is the wallpapaer sample I've got picked out. It's much more teal in colour in actuality. I'm not sure it's the one anymore...

I've also got to go buy new door knobs. I think I'll be purchasing glass knobs like this guy:




I'm in the home stretch though. Painting was for sure the biggest hurdle in this project. I used a dry brushing technique using Behr Paint and Primer in one so the old "wood tones" (they are particle board after all!) would show through giving the shelves some depth. I'm pleased as punch with how they turned out!

I'm also very shocked at how much crap I have stored in those babies!! This is the current state of my dining room! Yikes!!


What were you up to this weekend? Any wallpaper suggestions?

Did you notice my half primed dining chairs? They too are ready for paint! Another half done project! Woo hoo! lol!
