Alive

Yes I am still maintaining this blog :) I have been awful about updating though! Sorry :(

We have been busy enjoying summer, working on projects around the house, activities at church, and my Junior League obligations. Once I do get free, I have to admit, another website has been taking up lots of my time!

Pinterest.

"Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard.

Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.

Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests. To get started, request an invite."

Genious.

I'm embarrassed how much I am on this site. Its highly addicting!

So other than that, here is the latest completed project at our house:

Before:



After:

Our (mainly Eric's :) ) movie/media room is complete! Its a pretty fun room :) He has been working on it since January, it was quite a job.

-Removed popcorn ceiling, sanded, & painted it
-Added recessed lighting
-Cut, stained & installed crown molding
-Textured one wall to match the other 3
-Painted the room
-Gutted the closet (small project later that will have a counter, storage, microwave & fridge). It holds the A/V rack.
-Cut, stained & installed wainscoting & trim
-Made speaker mounts
-Stripped window & door trims and restained
-Stained & installed new door to room
-Connected surround sound & wiring in the attic
-Mounted projector
-Mounted screen

We had a few people over last weekend to watch True Grit, it was great! Its so nice watching a movie in there as opposed to just on the tv. Such a difference! The receiver he got also connects the xbox & wii, and to our patio speakers outside. We can control all the music, etc from our iPhone's as well which is pretty cool!

So we are pretty excited about it, its a really fun space :)
