Busy, Busy, Busy
Last we saw the boys they were in the new playroom. Danielle decided to take a little time to relax in a nice bubble bath. She probably would have taken a shower if she had remembered she needed a new shower curtain. She had Rod install the new mirror frame to make sure she liked it in the space. She does, so now he can buy the mirror inset.
They put a shelf in here to act as the linen cabinet. All the bathroom stuff is still packed in boxes.
Rod is downstairs in the kitchen admiring the paint job on the cabinets and the door handles on the fridge and the stove. Now all he has left to paint are the stove knobs and the center cabinet, which will be a more tedious job. After that he will install the backsplash that Danielle is still deciding on.
Danielle had him take out the mobile island. She's opted for a kitchen table. She was a little worried about Jacob safely sitting at the island. There were only two seats, too. The thought of walking upstairs to the dining room for every meal was a little daunting.
She will probably leave the floor and the walls the way they are for now. She has to put her energy to finishing the boys bedroom, the living areas, and the dining room.
Speaking of the boys room....She settled for a smaller red and white striped wallpaper. She's not finished with the bottom yet. There will probably be a window in this room. They painted Jacob's bed racing car yellow and found the coolest wheels for his bed.
The wheels are a Dollar Tree find. It's a yo-yo! Remember those. Hours of endless fun.
I also found these cool car stickers at the Dollar Tree. The yellow car was the inspiration for Jacob's bed. I will be painting the number 6 on Julian's bed and the number 3 on Jacob's bed.
That ends the house update pictures. I did start making the sectional for the living room. I also designed a wingback chair for the center room.
I found this set at Target. It's for the 18" dolls, but it's really not to scale. I bought it for the little drum. It's more 1/6th scale and I plan to use it in an African themed room.
This was the latest Dasia sweater. It's sold out. It looks great with the red jeans (still available).
It also looks great with the lime jeans (still available).
Last but not least, I am on a crazy baking and cooking spree since Friday. I've been inspired by the Great British Baking Show. So I've started baking again. This is my first ever homemade baguette. It was delicious.
I also made some custard tarts. They needed a little more time in the oven, but still tasted good. This week I plan to tackle chocolate eclairs and a few other goodies.
