A Few Project Updates

August 14, 2016

Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful Summer. Instead of a post about one subject today, I wanted to share a variety of smaller projects going on over here:

*  I have been chipping away at our large home painting project. I took a rainy weekend to finish the upstairs hallway:

I am so happy with the Wickham Gray!

*  For those readers that wrote and wondered what was happening with the new home design I was working on last winter:


Well, the homeowner seems to have run out of money, (and he is an accountant!). He had stopped all construction in March. I feel bad for him and to be honest I was very disappointed for myself. But I do believe that things always happen for a reason.

*  I am happy I just started working on a new office complex building for a growing construction company:Rob Office PlanSo excited! I have some great ideas and I will definitely keep you updated!

*  One reason I have really fallen behind in writing posts and my newsletter is because my Dad has not been well. My strong, healthy, always- take- charge Dad has been in and out of the hospital the last few months with all kinds of medical problems. I am worried and I feel so helpless. Here is a picture we took when my sisters and I visited my parents last month:

Please send good thoughts and prayers. Thank you!

*  Look at my before and after beautiful stool I finished for the kitchen:

Are you still wanting to try painting that piece of furniture but confused on which color to use? I am going to give you some great color ideas in this month’s newsletter at the end of the month.

* So excited to finally receive my two backordered accent chairs:

Aren’t they beautiful? Now just waiting for my new coffee table!

*  I also hosted a wine/beer tasting fund raiser for our local animal shelter in July. We raised almost $1000.00 for a few hours of work! I was pretty happy with the event.

And that about sums it up as to what I have been up to lately. Later this week I am going to share with you the before and after photos of an online kitchen redesign. Came out beautifully! What have you all been up to lately?


  1. Love the chairs, would u share the company they are from?

    Thoughts with you as your Daddy struggles and faces a new challenge….it is difficult ?

  2. Lots of great projects, Kelly. Love the paint colors you chose and the stool is wonderful. So hope your father is better soon!

  3. Love all your projects. A new color of paint on anything, walls, furniture, etc. always puts a smile on my face. Only good thoughts for you & your dad here from Texas.

  4. Everything looks beautiful to me.

    Your family is a very nice looking family and I’m definitely sending my prayers to you.

    Love seeing all your projects with such great inspirations.

  5. Your painting projects turned out beautifully! What color did you paint the stool? Looks great with our favorite fabric. ?

    Wishing your dad improved health very soon.
