Shelvin’ the Sonics…well kinda.
Yes, our guest room is entirely cloaked in green and gold. Our compromise was that he could have this room to display all of his knick knacks as long as I could have the rest of the condo! I think it was a fair trade 🙂 The BF got all of these cool Sonics giveaways from a season ticket holder and I thought it would be cool to display them – in comes handyman Keith who helped me install these shelves the other weekend. I think everything looks mighty cool all displayed like that – especially that Webby Award!
Our little deck is in pretty bad shape – paint chips, scratches – it’s a total mess. Decided it was time to tackle that project since we’re gearing up for summer. I love sitting outside, but I hated looking at that deck. Spent a few days pressure washing, scraping and sanding it then got a lucky break in the weather and was able to stain it with a solid stain (looks like paint, but stains like stain, if that makes sense). Now I can fully enjoy my outdoor space without having to look at that eye sore of a deck! Hurray!

Another Craigslist Find
The craigslist gods were on my side this week. I snagged an awesome tall dresser for our master bedroom. I had been looking for a dark stained one that would fit in between our closet and window and this one totally fit the bill. Our room is finally feeling put together! Now, I just need to figure out a solution to cover up the wall-to-wall closet….
Installing sticky tiles in a bathroom
It did take a bit of muscle and I did have to re-do a few tiles more than once due to inaccurate (and impatient) cutting, but overall it was a fairly painless project. I would definitely suggest laying them all out first before peeling and sticking; I had a few tricky areas and it was good to see where those ended up. It’s not 100% perfect (nothing an area rug can’t cover), but it’s a vast improvement!
Now all I need is for my dad to come over and finish up the trim. Oh and all of that electrical business too (thanks Dean for your expertise this weekend!)….it’s never ending around here…..
