The DIY Network

This morning I turned on the DIY network and we watched it all day. It got us inspired to start up some house stuff again. Luckily we had a few small projects that we could finish in an afternoon.

The first project was to hang our new chandelier. After a year of looking for chandeliers online and not knowing what I wanted, I actually found one at Menards! I had seen it before and liked it but wasn't sure if it was what I wanted, but yesterday I decided to give it a shot---- mainly because it was about half the price of most of the chandeliers I liked online.

After hanging and admiring our amazing new light we wanted to do more! We decided to hang the shelves we got in November when we went up to Minnesota and took a trip to Ikea. Originally, we were going to put the shelves up in the office but I changed my mind and we hung them on the wall next to the kitchen table. Now I need to get more picture frames--- but for now I put up every frame I could find in the house so I could see what it's going to look like.

Here are the pics:

I need to get some bigger picture frames to fill in the space. I'm going to stick with white, black and silver frames. I'm also really excited to be able to display the wedding mirrors. The only thing left to do in this room is get/make curtains for the sliding door, base boards, paint the last 2 chairs and get the table painted black!

On to another subject, I sent Robert to the store today to get oreos and he didn't buy double stuffed? What the hell? Who doesn't buy double stuffed? Who is this guy I married?
