Hi! This weekend was all about getting decorations out of the closet, and begin to decorate the mantle, string lights outside, and even do some painting. Before we could paint we had to have a project. The built in shelf in the living room could do with some sprucing up..so hubby knocked out an upper shelf..it was too high for me to reach so therefore it hardly got dusted, then we had to decide on a paint color, sand fossil. It wasn't a hard choice as we already had it in our possession, it was a color we trimmed the office, along with painting the walls a sage green. Hubby then used the hammer and other tools to knock out the shelf...being extremely careful not to knock out the wall behind it..the shelf came out with no problem! I painted long into the night on Saturday, well, the project wasn't started until after 8 pm...we weren't in any hurry. ;) Then hubby, gave the whole thing a second and third coat on Sunday. Just painting the inside shelves, the outside also needs to be freshened up with a new coat of paint, however, that will come when we decide on a new wall color. And to think this all started just by opening the closet....I wonder what other treasures will find upon opening boxes. There is a mystery there I'm sure.
