home sweet home

here are a few little projects we've finished around the house. many others are still in progress, so hopefully i can show you them before rich graduates in three years.

$5 chairs from the thrift store. i think they look pretty good after some sanding and a few coats of paint! new little table from ikea. thank you utah trip!

pot rack by rich. i love this and it frees up lots of space in our already limited cabinet space. i wanted something like this since we moved in and it was in place christmas morning! :)

this was also a christmas surprise for me. yep, i love twinkle lights.
nice sturdy $10 bookshelf for our little office. rich painted it black and it's as good as new!

our favorite thrift store find yet. we both love maps and wanted a map room, so this pull down school map was perfect! the only problem is that the state map it has is alaska and now rich wants to move there.
what i like most about these pics is that they each have things that remind me of friends and family (the 5 of you that read this blog). :) items you've given us over the years or your original artwork from our wedding reception. thanks for helping us make our first home so homey!

Your table and chairs are cute, way cuter than our worn out table. I think we did just as much a favor taking it away as we did lending it :o). If you see anymore maps hold them for us, my kids are geography buffs lately.
