Happy New Year!!!! Pardon my lateness to the party, I was out of town all last week and now I am back and ready to go!! EEEEEEEEEEEEHHHHHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOO! (that was my Wild West cowboy call if you couldnt tell.)
2012 was an incredible year for me and my blog and I am excited to see what 2013 holds in store. Right now I am itching to get some projects going and I cant wait to tell you all about the big plans that I have!!
Up first, because it is at the top of my list is the dining area of my kitchen. My kitchen is not my fave and I am hoping to be able to spruce it up a little bit (if Court has his way) or a lot (if I have mine…) but the dining area is something that is happening no.matter.what. Do you remember last year when I showed you how I painted my kitchen table?
As much as I love it its just not flowing the way that I want it to with my living room (they are slightly connected). So that is on its way out (if someone is interested in buying it email me!) the amazing green chairs that cause a firestorm of my questionable craigslist tactics are moving to the garage for now because I just cant bear to part with them…
If you follow me on Instagram then you have seen bits and pieces of my plans (if you dont you should @vintagerevivals) I shared this photo last week of the AMAZING rug I am using
I found the Craigslist deal of the century on some danish mid century dining room chairs ($120 for 7) when I googled them I found out that they are worth much much more……EEEEEEEHHHHHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOO! (There is that wild west call again.) They need to be reupholstered (or something along those lines) and the table is currently under construction. As for the walls they are getting a coat of paint with my favorite white (Sherwin Williams Ultra White Base) and a few other fun things are happening…(sorry I cant tell you all of my secrets.)
The hallway leading to my master bedroom has been neglected for, well, for the entire life of my blog. So that thing is getting a spruce up which means more ugly beam removal. And the Wall o Mirrors is getting an update.
Also please enjoy the fact that this picture was from Aug. 2010 and that wall behind the TV has undergone 3 paint treatments since then.
I am also getting closer to finishing up Miss Ivie’s room (I havent shared an update with you guys for quite a while) and here is a fun fact, the How To Paint Concrete Floors tutorial I shared is my most popular post of 2012!
Anyone have a man cave that they are working on? Good. Me too.
I have mentioned before that Court spent the entire 2nd half of 2012 renovating his parents house. It is getting close to completion and is GORGEOUS. I mean House Beautiful gorgeous. So I will be sharing that soon.
I am also planning on doing a weekly vlog. Its going to be an exciting mix of stuff, from decorating, to family, to thrifting trips. Good stuff people.
So that is the plan forecast least the 1st 1/2 of 2013
I am hoping to end up at more of YOUR houses this year too, so I will keep everyone updated as that unfolds.
So um…anyone want to come and help me paint?
