We had a blast this weekend. Much needed time together. Caleb had a big test on Friday (did well) and so he let loose for a couple days. We hit up the farmers’ market Saturday morning, then set off to create! The salvage yard was our next stop. We have been cooking up some plans for a bookshelf and mirror. After getting our materials, we set right to work… and didn’t really stop. We took mini breaks for ice cream and a movie and to eat every so often. But we loved making things together… mostly me telling Caleb what to create.
PROJECT 1: COFFEE TABLE
We got this table for free from the person we bought our couch from on craigslist. We need a bit more color in the living room… thus…
Don’t worry… it’s not as pink as it looks. Although it is a coral red 🙂 Actually… Sunset Skyline.
PROJECT 2: DOOR TURNED BOOKSHELF
I have realized that decorating on a budget, means working with what you have. That means working with what is at the salvage yard. If you want something in particular, you usually have to fork out some $$. So, we saw what was at the salvage yard, and then started dreaming as to what we could do with it.
The Door is not in our house yet (the life of a compact car), but visualize. Soon to be seen in our living room!
PROJECT 3: MIRROR… still in progress
Old mantel pieces, spray painted gold. I know.
Still in the process of attaching frame to mirror, but here is a sneak peek of the final product!
When we could manage to pull ourselves away, we got a treat at a famous, practically historical, staple of Omaha: Ted & Wally’s Ice Cream.
So thankful for such a wonderful time doing wonderful things. Only the beginning of wonderful adventures in this new place.
