Here is a slightly fuzzy picture of how the table and chairs looked before...
So much better! They were pretty beat up!
Chris also painted the barstools to match. These are just cheapo stools from Wal-Mart!
We just got back from Florida where we spent spring break. We spent Easter weekend with my dad and then the week after with my mom. The boys had so much fun in the warm weather - swimming and playing outside. They were glad to be out of the cold and so was I.
While in Florida, I picked up a couple things at IKEA. First, I found the cutest bed for our guest room/bonus room.
And then I found a pretty outdoor umbrella for our patio set.
I would love to get this table for our (empty) dining room, but that will have to wait a bit...
I'm having fun decorating our new house, but now I'm ready to stitch! I have been working on Ruth Bacheler quite a bit lately.
I also started Dutch Beauty. I keep asking myself what I'm thinking starting something so big! It's so pretty though, and I think it will look great over my bed one day. I really decided to start after seeing Paulette's finish.
I'm stitching it on 40 ct. Bisque, which I coffee-dyed to make it a little more cream and I'm using DMC threads.
Hopefully, we'll start to get into a routine now and things won't be so crazy. :)
