Smokey and the Bedroom

Our master bedroom is a work in progress. I found these great lamps that I refurbished, see post about that here... but it still needed something. Artwork!

So, I ask my husband what he thinks; what would he like to see at the head of the bed?

Mini Project: Kitty Batman

Mini Project time!
My husband received this gift from a funny friend. He got a laugh out of it, but ultimately, the shirt would just sit in his dresser, never worn.

Dining Room: Drab to Dazzling

Our dining room was boring. It featured a light wood valence with 1980s fabric vertical blinds within; a flowered ceiling fan with a special angel watering... something.

A few changes and the room looks completely different! As with all of our renovations, I only want to enhance the original vibe of the house, rather than try and bring it into the current decade.

Sneak Peek: Mid Century Credenza

Remember when I posted about those free chairs?
I spy with my little eye, something that is awesome... right there... behind them!

Those cabinets/credenzas were rescued by my boss a year or so ago, and have been languishing by the back door since then. They are just too great to throw away, but alas, no one had time to spend on them... until me.

Sneak Peak: Matched Set

My name is Pat and I am a chair-a-holic.

Yes, people. I've done it again. I brought home more chairs.
If you recall, I brought these diamonds in the rough home a couple of years ago.

Today, my boss, knowing my affliction for the prop, informed me of three such specimens behind our building. My boss is officially my favorite person today.
