a new coat of paint...

It's been busy around here lately, trying to get some to-do's done before the holidays hit. Over the weekend we started painting the livingroom a deep, dark grey, along with removing old blinds, ripping out a decorative railing, and fixing our screen door. It's amazing how the small changes can make such a big difference. We can actually see our windows now, and it's slowly starting to look more like ours. I can't wait to have at least one room put together, so we can enjoy the cozy nights this winter. I'm feeling displaced at a time when i'd normally be "nesting" into the Winter season.

How are you getting ready for colder nights in?

Also, my thoughts go out to those affected by the recent hurricane in the States. I hadn't realized the extent of the damage until seeing some photos over the past few days. Hopefully everyone has power, a warm place to stay, and all the necessities soon!


  1. Oh I can't wait to see how it looks on your walls! It is definitely getting chilly and so, I have those Aerie BF skinnies you posted about on my shopping list. :)

  2. I bet that gray looks beautiful! I know what you mean about winter nesting. I have cozy blankets thrown around everywhere right now!

  3. Glad to see you finally picked a can of paint! You'll start to feel more at home and "put together" once you finish the little updates. But it feels like it's never ending, doesn't it? Can't wait to see the livingroom all done up!
