Goings on at the Cottage!
Woo-wee! It's been a busy weekend here at Eventually Cottage! I hope you all had a great weekend and a great 4th of July!
I've got a lot of pictures to show off, so I hope you'll bear with me!
We attended a nice 4th of July parade yesterday. Josie and her Aunt Becky had a great time! My SIL is due 7/27, but the doctor says she's already dilating and that little baby Madeline will probably make an early appearance!!! I'll keep you all posted!
This woman is just awesome! She has been twirling her batons since I was a little girl!
Look who showed up in the parade! Herbie the Love Bug!!! Sooo cute, right?
This is that fire engine that I drive, that I was telling you all about the other day! Hubby and I volunteer with this engine company! Just for the record, I volunteered for years before hubby!
Hubby and I busted out some home improvement projects today! Unbelievable how much we actually got done!
I have been wanting to tackle my bathroom door ever since I saw this project that Michelle did over at From House to Home.
I forgot to take a before picture until hubby reminded me. He was halfway through putting moulding on the door when he reminded me. Here's the before.
And the after! Hubby added some great moulding, and I painted the inside of the moulding the same color as the kitchen and breakfast room (Brown Tee-Pee from Behr).
I then added a pretty stamp in white. I still like Michelle's version much better, but this is nice too. I'm going to head out tomorrow and look for some metal accent pieces for in the middle of the stamps.
The doorknob was that brass color that you see just about everywhere. Hubby spray painted it oil rubbed bronze. I love it!!!
The lantern on our front porch was also brass colored. Yuck in my opinion. Hubby took it down and spray painted it the same oil rubbed bronze.
Much better now!!!
I had showed you this trio of frames pieces that I created with my Cricut a few months ago. However, everytime someone slammed the bathroom door, they'd come flying off the wall. (With a pre-teen girl in the house, that door gets slammed quite often!)
So...I did away with the frames (cuz there was no more glass left in the frames) and mod podged the paper onto a piece of wood that I spray painted black. Hah! No more glass to break, guys!!!
Woo! Thanks for hangin' in there with me! Stop over at Between Naps on the Porch for more Met Monday posts!
