Home Decor projects

No projects were completed here today I spent much of the day relaxing trying to get over the cold I caught and catching up on laundry and other household chores those seem to get neglected when I get involved in a painting project. I want to share though what I got completed yesterday and the amazing color match done by Home Depot to my fabric.

I started this coral wall yesterday and managed to finish it before I felt the cold starting to set in. The next project will be to paint the desk a pretty bright color, then paint the opposite peak wall in the living room the same color. To pick the colors for this wall and dining room wall (that is the color the desk will be also) I used a fabric piece from the reading corner pillows. I am amazed at how well the Home Depot paint team matched these colors. Look at this!

Yesterday I also painted these house numbers that were on the side of our house they were white and not visible from the road. I painted them black and added them to this old tool box we were using as a planter.

Hoping I feel well enough tomorrow to work on more!

Cheerful Home Decor- Dining Room

Our cheerful Dining room

This looks a more green than the true color but it is bright and cheerful. A new light fixture eventually and this room will be complete.

I started to paint the dining room yesternight and because I had a big day ahead of me the next day with a field trip to the zoo I didn't want to stay up late to finish it.

While I spent a cold wet rainy day at the zoo with this cutie my husband finished it!!

Since the dining room was finished I started this project in the living room last night.

I hope to finish this wall today then move on the other living room wall that will be this pretty coral color.

New Pillows for the Reading Corner

I made new pillows for the reading corner. They are similar to the old ones but brighter and so cheerful! Oh I can't wait until I can paint the walls. What color do you think?

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

These cookies were a big hit in our house today and they are very simple to make and only have four ingredients.

1 egg
1 Cup of sugar
1 Cup of peanut butter
1 Tablespoon of baking cocoa

Make into balls and bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes smash down and make for fork design let cool then enjoy!

My little Chef wanted to make cookies today, we usually do chocolate chip but since we didn't have any chocolate chips I pulled out my peanut butter cookie recipe and decided to add the cocoa powder to get our chocolate fix. They turned out to be a big success and they are so quick and easy to make, a perfect cookie to make with kids. Next time I think I want to try adding chocolate chips as well.

Ladder Coat Rack

The other half of the old ladder used for coats in the small entry way. I was going to use in the laundry room to hang clothes on but it didn't work in there so came up with this idea. Shower curtain hook hung on the ladder rungs hold coats and backpacks. This turned out to be a perfect solution for our small entryway.
