randoms about a house

I had the new and improved foyer all set to show off today but Matt came up with another idea that thanks to Hobby Lobby and their 50% off metal sale must be accomplished sooner rather than later. So. It's best to wait because his idea is epic. 

But there are some other minor (or not so minor) things that have been altered in mi casa.... 

The chalkboard. Okay this doesn't really count but I like this one. I'm always trying to be as amazing as Little Baby Garvin
New rugs! The flooring in the foyer/hallway/kitchen/eat-in kitchen is the bane of my existence. It's practically white in color and shows everything. I thought perhaps this was a job to be tackled early on in our home ownership but sadly I was mistaken. I took to Kohls with a dream of covering as much as possible. It kind of works. Chevron found here. Other pattern here.Can I just say? Cheap and machine washable? Ding ding.
Doors. They be painted. Every. Last. One. Of. Them. Not a job for the weak hearted but man am I glad we did it. Small bonus that actually is not so small? Dirt. You just won't see it anymore. Maybe someday we will get around to removing brass hardware... maybe.
As seen here the window treatment in the eat-in kitchen was lacking. Matt and I were having a disagreement as to the state of affairs and naturally, I eventually won. A new valance was purchased and wala. 
I just keep adding to my gallery wall! But when you have new family members added (1 and 2) and people visiting from Oregon you must document with a new family photo (1 and 2). These must be hung. It's sort of law or something. 
Nursery. Nursery. (In my head I was chanting that like bangerang and then I got all kinds of sad) Well. I am already knee deep in planning this room for Baby Dom. Or Baby Nick. The seas are divided between spouses as to the nickname but the tides lean towards Dom. Details. Here is a sneak peak of what colors are happening and what theme is happening and it's bright and fun and Matt you need to just accept this. When have I ever steered you wrong?

Happy Thursday!
