Before I get started here are a few pics of what I've been doing lately. Keep in mind I have about 20 more where these came from. I've been VERY busy!
So, we just purchased this house on November 20th (Yes it's been almost 2 months now!) and we really looooove it. We took our time and waited about 7 months after selling our last house and we totally made the right decistion b/c now we have our dream house at the ages of 27 and 26... actually I was 25 at the time. I've only been old since Christmas Eve ;)
Anyway..... We LOVE our house. It has a place for everything. 3 guest bathrooms, giant master suite, gameroom (that we started transforming into a home gym), craft room, guest room, pool, 3 car garage, music room for the hubs and even an office to hide our computer and his books. I could go on. But, lets get back to this office. We never really considered having an office before, but this house had one and it was an extra feature that we really liked. Now this office is opens up right to our foyer/ dining room/ living room/ front door area. The office is covered in real wood paneling. It's quality stuff... just a little too formal for us. We may change it in the future. But, the even bigger issue is that the office houses our crappy computer desk that I drug back from college.... And right now the office has really become our dumping ground for all of the things that we aren't sure what to do with just yet. So, it really isn't something I want everyone to see as they walk into our house. So, Friday night I had the bright idea to do etching on the glass of the french doors. I sent Diddles out Saturday to get some stuff to spray on there. Needles to say it was slim pickin's. Right now we are on our 1 billionth coating and it still isnt quite where I want it to be. But, I know it will get there. The next thing on my list is to get the outside part of the door primed and painted white to match all of the trim in the rest of the house..... See what we've done so far:
This is the beginning stages of taping everything off.
And here it is with about a can and a half on it....
Here is what it looks like from the foyer right now.... It will look sooooo much better with a few more coats, an nice white paint job and some new handles!
