This Ugly House aka My mother has issues

Wow it’s been forever since I’ve done one of these it seems.

I’ve got the living room painted but not trimmed- no picture there.  I’d take one right now but it looks as if world war III just concluded in there.

I did get the hallway done, don’t know if I posted that picture already but here it is again, in case I didn’t.

I love that picture because my floors look amazing in it!  Trust me, in real life- they look nothing like that.  At all.

But that is all old news.

We’ve got good things happening round these parts!


They are (hopefully obviously) not done but the carpenters are coming back on Friday to put up the molding and then there is going to be a desk in between them.

I’m very excited about it.

Not only that but we are also putting in two benches in the breakfast room (with storage- woot!) which will also be done on Friday.

Now I just need to find a new kitchen table and I’ll be set.

Oh and my mother.

My mother.

She has issues of the furniture nature.  I put the bookshelf picture up on flickr and within the hour she had already commented that “wow, this would look even better with real grown up furniture in front of it.”

And just because of that statement- I’m now looking for a futon.

Take that mother!

Amanda is amazing. Amanda is spectacular. Amanda is humble. Amanda is also a full time college student so take pity on her and don't complain when her TV reviews aren't up immediately following an episode.
