Well, September sure left like a LION! Snow! High winds. What kind of high winds? The kind of wind that tore the door off the BRAND NEW John Deere Tractor!!!!!! BLEW the door RIGHT OFF!!
Other than that September was a pretty calm month. Made a new friend at the Goodwill store of all places. We are like two peas in a pod. Similar life paths including a move to Sandpoint!
The house is still a work in progress. Deck… still not done. Now that we have snow I’m doubtful that my front porch or deck will be done before spring.
Staying hopeful. pfffffttttttt who are we kidding? I’m not hopeful at all. Ohhh can you see the devil on one shoulder and the angel on my other?! They are havin’ a heck of an argument.
With all the rain we were having in the middle of September we decided to tackle the kitchen and add the barn wood back splash. OHMMMMMMMGGEEEEEEE!! It warmed up the kitchen like crazy!! It’s beautiful!!!! It took a lot of work. The ceiling is 12 foot so there was a lot of ladder work. (Me…. not a fan!) It’s really hard to get a good picture because everything is so tall!! But, this will give you an idea. BTW, remember that rusted wire I found on my hike? Check out the heart that I made for above the window. I’m pretty pleased with myself.
Even found a spray paint for the face plates that tied in with my rustic theme. And yes, the BBQ is still in the kitchen! Ohhhhh how I miss my deck!
Next, I want to do the same barn wood on the beam that goes across the ceiling. I think it will warm up and tie the room together. What do you think??
While I’m in such a little Suzy Homemaker mode, I finally decided that rather than get a real head board for the bed I want a personalized canvas to frame one of the pictures that I took up here in Sandpoint. The canvas is 48″ by 32″ it arrives unframed. Bet you can’t guess what type of frame I’m having The Husband make? Yup, barn wood! This canvas is stunning! It’s extremely well made. The colors are exactly like the picture. This ships from China so it took about a month to arrive. Not a big deal for me because the price for this HUGE canvas $25.88!! HELLO!??! I can wait a month! How about you?? You can even see the mist over the water! I am soooooo pleased that it’s taking everything I have not to nag The Husband to build the frame like YESTERDAY!!!
Isn’t that just a peaceful scene??
