Matt and I have done our share of crafty things. We painted the dining room in our old house (right over the wallpaper!), we turned light fixtures from bronze to black, we’ve hung shelves, spray-painted, built tables, planted gardens, and taken a stab at electrical work. [Matt gets most of the credit here!!]
But I don’t consider us to be very handy people. Compared to some blogs ; ) Because
Our my work is rarely done to perfection. [His almost always is!]
Anyways, today we accomplished a ton! Matt finished the garden beds and I got my paint on!
[Hoping he’ll write a post on how he built them soon]
I turned the ugly beige nursery closet blue, and we removed the door to add a curtain due to a rug location issue.
All the details on BERF this week!
I also touched up 100 little dings and spots in the house – like this one where blinds came down that was driving me nuts:
Much better!! I just love our gallon of trim paint : )
We wrapped things up around 7. Fresh paint [and house work] is sooooo satisfying!!
Bean burgers, roasted asparagus and an orange! Using the old KERF bean burger technique, we combined about a cup of the Rancho Gordo beans we had in the fridge with a few tbsp of sautéed mushrooms, 1 egg, salt, southern seasoning and mashed into patties. They were then seared in a pan.
Needed more ketchup…
The asparagus was coated in olive oil, salt and smoked paprika and roasted for 15 minutes under the broiler.
The orange was perfectly peeled!
I’m going up for a small bedtime snack…before one…more…episode of LOST! We just finished Season 5 and MUST know how Season 6 begins!
