It's Almost Here

This wedding is about here! Big changes have happened around the house. By big changes, I mean big TVs…
Actually this is the TV from upstairs. Chris came roaming in with 50" of fun the other day
Him and my dad did a little swap
 And now the giant tv is in the living room
And we have a grown up basement

 And I installed a mirror like a lazy person
 So now I can be part of this big tv action:
 Now Chris wants a sectional. Here's where it'll be if that happens

Something as simple as a TV in the basement just made the house feel so different. It isn't that girl's first house that it once was. It has family spaces.

It has pictures of first copies of keys that I can imagine being replaced with sonogram pictures and things like that.

It's much more grown up than it ever has been before. My life is just so different than it was before. Two weeks from now I'll be in Florida, it'll be my 30th birthday, and I'll hopefully making it to the marriage license office before they close. 

I had my wedding hair trial today. I did NOT go with this.

I just needed to take a moment to reflect. Life will be very different very soon.

Re-Covering a Chair: Part 2

This was my chair after the first go around here:
I was looking at different fabrics to re-cover the chair with when I remembered the set of Eivor panel curtains I'd gotten at Ikea that were by the door to return. Chances of me getting enough fabric to cover the whole thing for less than $14 were very slim so I opened them up:
I wasn't sure if there would be enough fabric to cover the chair. One panel was more than enough. I laid it out realized I'd need some black out fabric, but otherwise it looked good. 
So then I researched painting them and found posts like this and got started after I picked up a small stencil brush and some acrylic paint in grey, tiffany blue, turquoise, and green:
Isn't the little bird so cute?
Once I did the green I realized I needed to simmer down. I greyed over the green and kept on moving:
Then I laid it out so I would get the right mix of color on the chair:
I looked back at my past post and realized I already had black out fabric underneath the stripes. I ripped out the staples and pulled off the striped fabric. Then I laid the new fabric out and stapled away:

Here is the after!
