Right before every holiday or party when we have people visiting our home, I get on a decorating kick.
I want to have a new project or two to show off.
So this year, prior to our Christmas guests arriving, I decided to tackle a few projects that have been on my mind for at least 6 months. That deadline of an arriving plane is a great motivator.
To start, the downstairs bathroom floor:
This floor is just no-wax vinyl squares, that are stained and gross because for whatever reason I chose white floors for the bathroom and mudroom when we moved in 7 years ago. What was I thinking??
I found a pretty 12 by 12 stencil online.
Eventually I would love wood floors in here, but until then, this will do.
Then there's the buffet in the dining room. That is overflowing with toys.
I have been wanting to hide that mess for a really long time, and finally decided to break out the ironing board and adhesive to get 'er done. I avoid my sewing machine at all costs.
Finally, I wanted to pretty up the kitchen corner a bit and had extra muslin from the buffet skirt, so I decided to make a faux skirt for the kitchen sink.
Faux, because I just attached a cafe rod to the cabinet door, instead of removing the door completely.
Because I still have kiddos running around and don't want them playing with the clorox wipes.
That's it, folks!
Our guests arrive tonight, my twins turn 5 tomorrow, they have a party on Thursday, I work on Friday, and one of the twins is puking today.
Such is life. Hoping my sweetie pie feels better for cupcakes tomorrow.
