A few house updates

Look what arrived in the mail the other day from my mother in law! 


My new ironing board cover!  I had to run out to Target to get an ironing board hanger so that I could proudly display my ironing-board-turned-work-of-art!  Does that make me completely old that I just got excited about an ironing board cover?  How many times can I say ironing board in one blog post?  Anyways – I love it.  Thanks Maggymom :)

Also, I decided to finally paint our guest bathroom.  It had been driving me crazy because it felt so BLAH, so I grabbed a gallon of paint and went to work.  I am really happy with how it turned out.  I think it could probably use another coat in a few places, and I’ll get around to that eventually, but it finally feels like it is decorated!

What do you think?

Last – Matt and I found some rocking chairs on craigslist for a steal (compared to what I had seen them priced at), so we added those, a fun fall wreath and some pumpkins to make our front porch feel a little more welcoming.  I still need to stain the rocking chairs to match the shutters, but I love them!


Oh… and I just had to brag on my husband for a quick second.  He came home from work yesterday with these…


… just because.  I’m a lucky girl :)

Pin It!

Well, now I'm embarrassed! But that ironing board cover DOES look good, so I can't wait till I get mine. The bathroom color is so "rich"- looking...Brittany, you are amazing! You always have a project going on. Your front porch looks so cozy and inviting; might just sit a spell in one of the ole rockers while we're there! Love you...Maggy
