I guess I never did post our finished attic photo’s!
This space was never really finished since the house was built in 1926….so we are the first to really utilize the space to its full potential, pretty proud of how it turned out; here they are!
Here are the before’s
this one is before a new rug and blinds but only one I have at this angle on my phone 🙂
Love this cozy space with a view! great place to hang out with our family and cuddle up
So I’m Finally going to fill you in on some updated pics from our never ending reno… just this kitchen so far. 🙂 I will update you once our trim is all done for our new living room and dining spaces.
Working on it:
Almost done (just need trim and some fluffing):
I will post the remaining when we are all done, working on it pretty steady now as I have been riddled down with morning sickness! ( new babe in June 2015 :))- so stay tuned for a big boy room redo, new spare bed room and a nursery personalization for the new adddition

Here is a tutorial!
What you will need:
-tape or spray adhesive
-batting ( I used a prepackaged quilting batting)
-staples and staple gun
Roughly mark foam, then secure down with tape or spray adhesive so that you can secure with batting.
Place batting on top and secure with a staple in each end, pull taught but not too tight. We want the foam to keep its shape. Cut off excess.
Iron fabric and place on foam/batting. Secure with staples alternating sides. Carefully attach the edges around the curve to ensure there is no bunching
Cutting slits helps with the corners
Cut off excess fabric and batting. Add nailhead and voila!
In this case also remove and install new legs
Green apple fabrics $ 72 (2 yards)
Hairpinlegs $48 +shipping for the 12″ legs
Nailhead trim $27
Here are the choices
I plan on using my existing oval coffee table and replacing the legs with hairpin legs and adding about 5 inches of foam to the top. My little up cycling project!

Definition: repurposing old stuff into something useful….hmmm sounds like it’s up my alley!
After a lot of hard work, some dirt, a few problems and a whole lot of team work my husband and I finally finished the project we started after the bathroom went AWOL in October ( I know… It took a while!) but the latter end of pregnancy and a new baby later it turned out better hen we could have imagined!

a little bit of fresh fruit creates a fresh look
Why do you have to use candlesticks for just candles?
a little gift for your guests, perhaps some chocolates? this plum purple really adds a touch of glamour to the holiday party
Okay, not a centerpiece, but love this!
A bit of drama
something even the kids can help you put together
