change of plans

hey guys happy friday! i had big plans for the weekend reno but just got a call that my guy is surprising me for the weekend so i’m scrambling to clean and touch up. i guess it will be good to share the changes with him but really wish the corner unit was built so he could put all his stuff in it. i should make him put it together!   ;p

i was about to head upstairs to play with these chartreuse silk shams liz found but that will have to wait. instead, i’m replacing the kitchen fixture with an antique bulb,  dug out the cozy blankets now that i have a basket! and do the boring stuff like paint white high gloss white on the front door and table tops.

so i have to get cleaned up, i look like a hausfrau and that’s being kind!

hope you get some of your own projects done. even one feels good. bon weekend mes chers amis!

    Hello: I’m swinging back to take a peek at what you are up to. Scramble babe, and lose the hausfrau. We bloggy women spend far too much time in our p.j.’s talking about beauty while we look like @#$%.

    It’s great to see how you transform a place… and motivating for me to tackle my own. You’re so lucky to have a helpful friend like Liz, and a great boyfriend who lets you redo the place too! Hope you enjoy your relaxing weekend! Bonnie

    Hey, Claude, have you been documenting all this reno on video? As usual, your pix are spot on and might also be the source of something but, as with your prior videos, this one could be so entertaining. Think about it as I’m sure you already have.

    The Schiaparelli chairs are lovely , they make me think about 2 armchairs that I have in my show room and that match perfectly with them
