DIY Labor Day Weekend projects




This weekend has truly been about Labor! I had a long list of tasks that I wanted to get completed this weekend and the most important ones (on the top of the list) were completed....yea us! The biggest of all was to paint our living room wall, which happens to be cathedral height at one point...it was a challenge to say the least. Momma Sarah and I knocked it out in about an hour and 15 minutes though....and if I do say so myself, I think it is HOT! Ok, perhaps it's the paint fumes or I am just sleep deprived (i was at lowe's at 6:30am this morning), but it does look good. Even my pahli (the hubby) says that he thinks it makes the color on the TV even better...wow! I got a couple smaller projects done like repurposing a large cashew container from SAM's with scrapbook paper to use for scrap ribbon and ric rac...i also began to decorate for fall....come on cooler weather! The only other project that I really wanted to finish was my kitchen re-organization and purge...i will continue to work on it all week, in the evening, until it too is complete. ok, so here are a couple of pics of the l.r...but i am going to have to take more during daylight so that it doesn't look purple...b/c it is so not!! Have a great week everyone... h
