- Chris painted the short downstairs hallway and declared it the official end of his “summer painting.” He has done almost all of the painting in the house, including the family room, eat-in kitchen, powder room and hallway this summer. I am looking forward to tackling the kitchen painting myself this fall!
2. Our family room got an infusion of life with family photos we finally unpacked from the move and a few new pillows thanks to Labor Day sales at Pier One and HomeGoods. It literally took four trips back and forth trying different options, but we landed on a solid and strip for the cream couch, a flowered one for the chair and a navy/cream lumbar pillow for the burnt orange sofa. That soft throw wiggled its way in the basket, too!
