Good Monday morning to you!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Mine was simply wonderful. We had the most gorgeous weather, so we kept our windows wide open, with the most amazing breeze blowing through. There’s one tree on the perimeter of our condo building that’s in full bloom with the most fragrant tiny white flowers, so that sweet smell was wafting into the courtyard and into our condo all weekend. (Our building is shaped like a rectangle donut, with a courtyard and all of the condo entrances in the hole.)
Literally…the PERFECT spring weekend!!
And of course, I worked on my condo. I really am inching closer and closer to the finish line on my kitchen and breakfast room. I still can’t cross anything else off my list just yet (the last thing crossed off was the pet station), but almost all of the things left are “in progress” and nearing completion. Oh, what a glorious day that will be!!
The sad thing is that most of what I did isn’t particularly exciting…like FINALLY prying up the quarter round around the baseboards so I could put the final row of tiles down and do some grouting. What boring pictures those would have been!
But there is one thing that absolutely makes me giddy. You see, after about a year of living with this…
(Recessed lighting with NO trim kits…uugghh!!! How ugly!!)
And also about a year of this…
(Cabinets with no moulding at the ceiling, and a terribly sloppy painting job…yuck!!)
After this weekend, I now have this…
The paint was still wet in the picture, but what a difference those details make, right?
Perhaps…just perhaps…this seemingly never-ending project will one day have an ending.
Well, I hate to cut this short on a Monday morning, but these next two weeks are going to be crazy busy for me. If I’m not around as much as I have been, you’ll know why. But hopefully when it’s all said and done, I’ll have some pretty great projects to share with you!
By the way, if you missed the first A2D link party yesterday, be sure to visit and check out all of the great projects that were linked up!! And you still have time to link up your own project or room transformation. The linky thing will be open until Wednesday. Click here to visit the link party!
Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
I hope you’ll join me on my DIY and decorating journey! If you want to follow my projects and progress, you can subscribe below and have each new post delivered to your email inbox. That way you’ll never miss a thing!
