Heeeeeeeere's Jeannie

(say that in your best Jack Nicholson voice!)

I'm back!! It's been too long!! Our hectic life is slowing down to normal which means I get to be creative again!!! That's exciting for me. I have several projects pending or in the works and I'm chomping at the bit to get to them! I have been bitten by the inspiration bug big time.

My dining room is a work in progress. I'm not overly fond of the color but I'm not painting it again. It went from orange to green but almost a 70's green. It's not a bad color, I'm just not a big fan. I learned the hard way not to match a room color to fabric. Last week I traded out my old curtains for new ones. Thanks to Target's shower curtain that i cut up, I have fresh, modern curtain panels that help change the feel of the room. After searching Pinterest and I came up with a few more ideas to complete the room.

One of the ideas I have for our dining room is to add more seating. We are always two chairs short when we have guests so I went on a hunt. I wanted to find some matching captains chairs that I could paint and reupholster and wouldn't break the bank. I found just that at our local peddlers mall on Thursday. They were sturdy and clean and only $20 a piece. I hesitated, though, and walked out without them. I kept thinking about them and decided before things got crazy for Super Bowl to go back for a second look.  It was meant to be because not only were they still there but they had been marked down to only $12 a piece. I took them with me this time. While the boys were at school today I ran to Hobby Lobby and got the fabric for them. Thursday it's supposed to get up to 50 and I plan to prime them(after getting my hair done which I'm super excited about). Hopefully by next weekend they'll be finished!

In the midst of the after Christmas craziness, my nephew was born. He is such a little sweetie and I just love him to pieces!!! How can you not love that face??

Lots of exciting things going on around here and I'm loving it :)
