A little of this and a little of that...

 Hey there friends...Happy St. Patrick's Day!
~~~
Still not much I can do around here until the floors are finished but I did manage to work on a few projects this week!
~~~
Kitchen floors were finished last weekend and all my appliances were put back including the center island. While the granite top was off I had my cousin add these pretty wood corbels to the island and then I painted them black.
LOVE the look!!
  I also worked on getting my bar stools painted...
I loved the walnut color they were but they started to get pretty beat up...my kids sit here all the time to do home work...eat...or just to hang out.

 AFTER...using my Maison Blanche paint in Wrought Iron. I had just enough left in the can to get these done:-)
 I distressed the seat area and all around the edges.

 Next up...painted the dining room. I went  lighter...the new color is Cornice Tan by Ben. Moore but I had the formula cut in half.
This color is going to go throughout the whole first floor and upstairs hallway.
 Now that the floors are laid in here I can freshen up all the white below the chair rail.
This weekend they finished up the dining room most of the hallway and completed my power room and put it back together...DEFINITE PROGRESS:-)
~~~
I'll be painting this week....what will you be up to?

Lots going on at your house, Martina! I'm sure it is looking great. Love the corbels you added to your island. I would love to do that with our counter set-up, but there is molding in the way. The stools turned out great. Love them in black.

Everything looks beautiful Martina! I love the corbels you added to the center isle. How exciting to have so much accomplished in just a week. I hear you on the painting...I have a paint project going right now which seems to be taking forever. But it is all good and worth the work in the end.

Love the island corbels and the chairs too! The lighter color on the walls will certainly make it lighter for spring...if we ever get spring that is.ha!
