It’s hard to tell from the pictures but I’m super excited about how usable all this pantry space is going to be!

Also… We spent




installing plank ceiling.

Who woulda guessed that installing plank ceiling would make your fingertips hurt so stinking bad!  Yeash!

So with that I’m signing off.  It seriously hurts to type. lol!

More details and fun pictures to follow.

You know… When my fingers recover.

(I’m aware that sounds ridiculous… But this is real.)


Okay…. I may be a *little* obsessed with poufs now…




The downside?

I’m too cheap to buy one…



The upside?

This girl just did a blog post listing places you can buy and DIY tutorials!

(This is the post that did me in.  Now I’ve gotta have a floor pouf. Thanks.)





My favorite?



This Tutorial by Retropolitan using $3.00 IKEA floor mats.  While I don’t have an IKEA nearby, (yet!) I do have a lot of floor mats…  Free after rebate at Menards!!! 😉  I even managed to send in the rebates!  Yay me!


Just as soon as I decide to join in on this escapade, I’ll keep you posted! I kinda sew… But I’m not a seamstress.  So it could be amusing.  😉
