working over the weekend

we're supposed to be working for the weekend, but with no plans and a stint of rain, ronnie and i decided to get a few things done around the house.

project number one.
our light fixture in the kitchen is broken and luckily i have a live-in electrician that knew just what to do. so we went from this:

to this:

i decided to change it up a bit and go to a black fixture instead of the brushed nickle.  i think it goes well with our cabinet hardware and counter tops.

project one complete.

on to project number two.  my dye job.  and yes, he complained a lot.

project number three.
we came home to this and ronnie thought he could at least get started.  he thinks it's still too hot to actually finish the job - we'll probably have to wait until fall to paint - but at least it's looking better.  

starting to dry.

dried.  much better and not so noticeable.

started with this:

ended with this:

we rounded out our saturday with laundry (yes, ronnie really does wear bibs everyday and i have to hang them in our bathroom to dry)

and a trip to the grocery store - finally, some real food in the house.

but that didn't stop us from ordering a pizza

and renting a couple of flicks.

we enjoyed an evening of doing NOTHING!
hope you had a good weekend too!
