It will be the fun room and eventually we will add a bar...no pool table, but there will be lots of games watched on our new tv :)! Enjoy!
I'll post the before pictures soon, but let me tell you. It's come a VERY long way...
One thing we have to do, is cover that hideous A/C unit that is living in the center of the wall. We have some ideas, so we'll see how it turns out...stay tuned!

I have never done so much painting in my life! Our paneled wall office took over my life this past week. I started with the painting last week and today FINALLY finished it all up. As if it isn't hard enough painting paneling, it isn't easy trying to paint with 2 80lb weimeraners running around sticking their noses into everything, literally (see exhibit A).
Yes, that is paint on Rhett's nose, from where he pushed his way through the door I was painting...
In addition to dodging dogs, I was playing assistant wiring technician to Gregory (see exhibit B):
Yes, that's the hubby being the main wiring technician, running speaker wires through the attic for the new speaker system he just purchased. Please pay no attention to all the other stuff in that room, it's kinda the catch all room at the moment until we are able to disperse it all...
And to finish off the night, we started painting the rec room (exhibit c):So apparently I like to start and end my day with painting...I think I might start my own business!!

This was another one of Gregory's "Wild Hairs" and apparently on his "to-do first" list. (I later found out it was because he wanted the original light for his new shed...)
So after ripping off the old light, realizing it needed a box in order to mount the new light, buying a box to mount the light, mounting the new light, and FINALLY taping and painting around the newly mounted light...WHA-LA! We had a bright, new, fancy light! And we love it. So here are the before, during and afters...
There were so many "firsts" to consider, so we just started doing things as they popped into our heads. So after my awesome father-in-law (and mother-in-law) came up and cut down our forest of bushes; Gregory got a wild hair and decided to take down the horrible stable fences that served no purpose at all. So, without further ado...
Here's the Before (Pre-awesome FIL/MIL and Gregory):
AND, Here's the after (Post-awesome FIL/MIL and Gregory):

I'm not sure where we'll put it in the new house, but I know it's gonna look great where ever we decide.
I'd love to post pictures of our new house, but it's not final till the 10th of September, but as soon as it is, I'll post all kinds!
Until next time...

Sorry for the lack of posts this past week; work is just taking over! I didn't hit up the yard sales or the flea market this weekend due to poor weather, but I was able to incorporate some of my finds from last week into my decor!
Remember the other "mystery item" I told you that I got last week? Well it was a bookshelf that needed a fresh coat of paint and some new hardware. So I did just that and this is the final product!
You only see from the middle down because I don't have anything on the top shelf :). It's still a work in progress, so stay tuned...
Also, remember the sepia toned picture of the Angel Oak I found at YS for $5.00? Well I went frame shopping yesterday and found one that worked just perfectly! Hung it in the bathroom and wha-la! Presto! We had instant artwork, and boy does it look great!

They are always tired on the weekends. However, I'm sure Duke was especially tired because earlier that day he found the entire bag of tennis balls we had stashed away in the shed (we call it Duke cocaine). We were busy painting when we looked out and saw this...
