It is been a little silent all over in this article for the reason that I experienced an personal injury last 7 days that rendered me useless for numerous times. I experienced returned from an extremely exciting spouse and children reunion the final weekend in September and was in the center of a several home assignments when all of a sudden my again seized up and I threw it out and I couldn’t shift. It is never occurred to me before but it was my physique indicating “hey sis, sluggish down” so I was pressured to just lay on the flooring with my toes up for three days using ibuprofen, icing the personal injury, and ready for the inflammation to go down. Not enjoyment at all.

Amusing how when we experience overwhelmed we assume “if I could just sit and rest a tiny bit” and then when you are forced to sit continue to from injuries all you can believe is “This stinks, I really need to get going, I have matters to do”. 🙂

It is the fourth day and I’m lastly ready to sit in my workplace chair so in this article I am with a several house updates. First, a insignificant refresh in the living place. I took down my old white linen curtains and replaced them with grey cotton velvet kinds that utilized to hang in the grasp bedroom. They include a little shimmer and luxe to the room and who does not really like velvet in the colder months. I was likely to do a slide home tour but the improvements ended up so minimal I made the decision to wait until finally Christmas when it’s all embellished additional festive for my daughter’s return house from faculty.

In the dining area I current the built in cabinetry by taking away two of the glass entrance doorways and painting the cupboards a lighter shade. It was originally a mahogany stain and was finding a lot more pink as time passed and it was emotion like a dim gap so instead of replacing the cabinets I modified the area into a a great deal brighter place by priming and painting the cabinets.

I observe the same ways I generally do when I paint stained cabinetry. Quite a few paints proclaim to be a paint + primer combine and that’s fantastic for walls and trim, but for cupboards I normally use Zinsser or Kilz primer to start with to grip the wooden and to block any stains from coming by means of. One particular coat is all you need to have.

I adopted up with a new paint model I have never employed, the Valspar Cupboard & Home furnishings paint. I commonly use Benjamin Moore but I thought I’d give this model a test specially since it was a flat finish and two coats coated adequately. The shade is a incredibly pale taupe that seems like off white, it is called ‘Shoreline Haze’.


The satin nickel components obtained a new golden glow with a small bit of Gold Leaf Rub n’ Buff. I also painted the backsplash as a substitute of replacing it so now it is a matte white that appears intentional rather than the shiny glass that was there before. I’m wanting ahead to setting up a little Xmas village on the open shelves following month.


We’re providing my daughter’s area a partial makeover because she’s not dwelling in the residence anymore, she’s absent at college on the east coastline. We’re likely to preserve most of her items on cabinets and preserve her posters up on the wall so when she arrives home for Christmas and summertime it nevertheless feels like her room but we’re changing the carpet and updating the linens and repainting the partitions so it can be employed as a visitor area in her absence when the in-guidelines visit.

I don’t want to be one particular of individuals dad and mom who promptly transforms the area into a interest home or house fitness center or one thing like that when their child leaves. I do want her to feel welcome when she returns. It is a odd experience cleaning out a teenager’s space, performing your ideal to respect their items but however thinking how did all those sweet wrappers and solitary socks and dust bunnies conclude up in every crevice in here? 🙂


All the relocating furnishings and portray was what brought about my again damage so I’ve bought to take it simple close to the dwelling for the subsequent couple of times. We’re having the full interior of the property painted this drop and will be painting the exterior in the spring. We’re also updating the kitchen with new higher cupboards and shelves, white quartz counter tops, and a extra modern-day backsplash as well. People updates will be showcased in the coming months!


As everyone is aware, Hurricane Ian hit Florida tricky, especially Fort Myers, Naples, and Sanibel Island. The devastation is certainly heartbreaking. As frequent visitors know, we bought a household in Sarasota, Florida before this year with the intention of finally shifting there. I spent the summer time in Florida fixing it up and we designed pals with nearby people and neighbors. Sarasota is ninety minutes north of the area most devastated. Immediately after the hurricane, our neighbor (who has been seeing our home) informed us that there was no hurt to the exterior or inside which was a aid since we will not want to file any statements.

I’ll be flying back again to Florida future 7 days to crystal clear up some fallen branches and proceed perform on a handful of rework initiatives in progress. I have already built some updates to the family area by adding a new credenza and established of sofas. The property is cozy and at ease and fully furnished.


The rationale I convey it up simply because we’ve resolved to rent our Florida home from December through April to any family that’s been displaced by Hurricane Ian.

So if you take place to know any person interested in a a few bedroom, two rest room furnished rental that is five minutes absent from Siesta Key beach front, please get hold of me and I can mail any fascinated get together current pics of the areas and aspects on the dwelling. It’s offered December 1st. Major inquiries only email —> [email protected].
