I know, it's been a while!

What I have been up to...





In the living room...




For the past four weeks...and now the cutting, nailing, puttying, sanding, priming and painting is all done, everything except the window sills and trim around the windows. Whew! I thought I'd never ever finish this project! I will finish the sills tomorrow and give it a good cleaning and it will be so nice to have that room back together again!

I will be showing you a full room shot of this room! (Really and truly!) We are putting our "behemoth" grand piano on Craigslist tomorrow and will soon replace it with an upright and I am doing some redecorating, so it might be a couple of weeks until I'm ready to show you the whole thing! :)

To do this project, I followed a tutorial given by It's the little things that make a house a home . It was fun to take a break from working on our kitchen~ by February, I thought if I so much as looked at another piece of beaded board, I would scream! So this was a welcome diversion! But now
I am actually happy to start putting up the beaded board in the dining room this week! ;)

I am sorry if it seems like I fell off the face of the earth lately! I will be visiting your blogs and catching up on what you have been up to lately this week! I have missed reading your blogs! :)

I hope you are all doing well, and enjoying the first bit of spring! :)

Many blessings,

Wow Jenni, it seriously looks amazing! You've got me thinking about doing it in my house now!! I love it that much!
Saturday was so beautiful that we took our Granddaughter to the beach-What a great time it was.
I'm watching her now as her mom goes to school and works~She's taking a nap now so I have a "little" break!
I'm hoping we can all get together soon but have to wonder if it will happen before summer-It's that crazy over here (my dad is having some health issues)
Can't wait to see the rest of your pictures!
Love,
Robin~♥
