On Monday I posted about wanting to get a rug for that space in between our island and sink. I bit the bullet yesterday and as a prize for finishing the retirement events for Gordon's President and First Lady (more about that later this week), I bought the rug. I guess it's not really a "prize" so much when you already have gift cards to cover it but it worked for me. Now my feet are on cushy, happy ground. :) I shot it from basically every angle because I'm obsessed.
While I was at my last event yesterday AJ painted the railing he installed in our upstairs hallway! When we bought the house there was a wall where the railing is now. And the railing? That was a $5 find from our favorite antiques store.
It now matches the halfway done railing at the base of the stairs. I was just searching through old posts and found this one from when we had a wall there... it's amazing how much more light is brought in by taking down walls. I'm lucky my husband loves destructing things. :)
