Cheater, Cheater, Pumpkin-Eater

Dear readers, I've come to you today to beg you for has been well, a lot of days since my last home improvement project post.

And it's not that I'm not doing work on the house. I am. I've been cheating on you. I've been doing home improvement and not (gasp!) sharing it with you. (Picture me shame-faced.)

It takes time to write posts and deal with pictures and I've just let it slide. I'm not going to promise it won't happen again. It probably will. But I am sorry that I haven't posted a lot lately.

I haven't shared things like, I have no baseboards in the living room, but it is a new color:
Ignore the mess and be happy there is a picture! :)

This is just before Karl was assembled. Just grabbed it so you could remember the color.

The color is Coventry Gray by Benjamin Moore.
I don't think this picture does it justice. But once the whole room is done, I'll walk you through better pictures and why it is working so much better.

I painted the door finally. It was brown and that would have clashed with the gray, so now it's black.

We've started making a sofa table. It would be done by now, but I messed up my part and we had to regroup. But I'll show you that soon.

Matt has begun the outdoor projects by closing off the side of the deck. There's a whole landscaping thing coming with that too, but that was thwarted by rain this weekend.
That's what he's fixing. I don't have after shots yet.

Oh, and we rearranged our bedroom, and I have a great tip for you...but you'll have to wait for it. Gosh, I'm a cheater and a tease!
