Today's Project and Still Nothing but Water! ...

I hope your week is going well. I had an eventful morning, but we won't go there right now. And there is snow in the forecast for Friday! Actually, I'm kind of hoping for a snowday, but we will see.

I did manage to get this chair and a loveseat that matches it recovered. I used an old hobnail chenille coverlet that unfortunately had a large tear in it. My parents gave me this 6 piece wicker set a few years ago because they no longer had room for it. Well, I really didn't have any place for it either. Though it would look awesome in a sunroom, but I don't have one of those :) Most of it has been stored in the basement, with a piece or two of it finding its way upstairs every once in awhile. BUT, 4 pieces have now found a place upstairs and I'm really like the look and arrangement of it. I can't share the whole thing yet, but you will see it in the big kitchen reveal.

My only dilemma now is, should I paint it? There is a really pretty spray paint called nutmeg(kind of a mocha tan color) that would match the kitchen nicely. However, once I paint it, there is no taking it back.
And just a peak at some cupboards...
Oh, and it's been 3 weeks now with no other beverage but water!!! I have not cheated or slipped up once!! Not even a little lemon in my water. Thank goodness we have really good tasting water here :) I honestly can't believe I have made it this long, not to say that I don't really miss my teas and juices, because Man, I sure do. And seeing commercials for cherry Dr. Pepper don't help, I really want to taste that! And then seeing a sign for Mt. Dew Coolata at Dunkin Donits, sigh, so hard!! That may sound really gross to many of you, but when you are craving something with flavor, it sounds really awesome! Now I'm drooling. Ok, enough of that. I'm off to crochet now, have a great night.



  1. Congrats on the 3 weeks! I wouldn't make it a whole day! I'm not sure if you should paint or not - sorry I'm not much help! I like your cupboard sneek peak tho! :)

  2. I need to drink more water and will when it warms up, till then the water in my coffee and ice tea will have to count! I couldn't give up coffee at all! Love the sneak peek of your cabinets and can't wait to see the rest!
