Welcome Home!



We worked a ton at our house in Kyle this weekend. Thank you, Daine! Justin couldn't have painted as fast without you!

The house is really looking good. I have attached a picture of my new favorite room. It's our formal dining room. I love the new hutch and I wanted to show everyone the chairs that I recovered, the table runner I sewed myself, and finally the cornice boards that I nailed together myself and covered with my handy staple gun. I also added the decorative trim with my hot glue gun! I love crafting/decorating. I really hope to be like Sarah Hogan one day. By finishing this room, I feel I am one step closer. If only I could learn to smock my kid's clothes!

The only thing I have left to do is hang the pictures on the wall and have Justin hang my new chandelier.

I hope everyone has a great week!

The dining room looks great but of course I knew it would. After my last visit to Kyle I knew we had our own Martha Stewart in the family. What room is next. Lots of Hugs and Kisses. Aunt Judy
