Progress

This was my dad and Marcus last night staining the floors! Yippee. They are officially done, but I don't have an official picture yet. It stinks over there and I can't walk on them for 24 hours.
They don't look that dark in real life.

And here is the guest room with some stuff in it. It's kind of my staging area of all my decorating things. Now that all the floors are done I can start putting things in other rooms too.



I did start to decorate the tops of my kitchen cabinets:

And I got these cute knobs at Hobby Lobby for only $1.50 each!

It's hard to tell from the flash, but they are white with green polka dots.
The tile is done now too, the appliances are at our house, but in the garage, and the outside of the house started to get painted today!

I am starting to feel like we might, possibly, be able to finish this project!

Now I need to get ready to watch the Bachelorette! I think it's going to be pretty dramatic tonight!

Love those black and white polka dot curtains!

I'm always looking for ways to decorate the top of my kitchen cabinets - they are completely bare right now. I'm not very creative in the decorating department.

I love your kitchen cabinets! The kitchen is my fav room to decorate.

Staci said...

Looks great! Your kitchen is already more put together than mine and I've been here 6 years! Feel free to come to my house. Not like you have anything else going on!

Hope you're getting some rest in the midst of all this!

Hey Dina, I love your blog and your personality!! I laugh all of the time reading it. I love your creativeness and with that said, I love how you did the edges on your kitchen cabinets. Can you tell me how you got that look? I've seen others, but I like yours.
Thanks so much,
Melissa
