Just another reason I LOVE paint - Stair Rail Update

If you have read my blog for any period of time or followed me on Instagram, then you know that I love, love, LOVE me some paint!

After we removed the carpet from the Stairs, sanded and stained them, painted the stairwell, added Chevron, and added the mirros, it STILL felt like it was missing something.  (Click on the links to check out previous DIY projects on a budget)

SO... I pulled out a can of paint... AGAIN! Go Figure!

I used the flat black paint that I used on my Front Door and I think it turned out perfectly!  It saved me a fortune on updating the rails and it was done in a matter of minutes.  Nothing better than that!

 OH how I LOVE the power of paint!

Weekend Wrap Up

I hope everyone had a GREAT weekend and that you are keeping warm with the Artic Front that has impacted so much of the United States.  It's a toasty 28 degrees here in Texas!

This weekend was the first weekend in a LONG time that we didn't have one thing planned and it was a very nice break.  We did manage to get a few things accomplished, but really just enjoyed our time together.

I did a few jalks in this weekend and my Lil Man went with me and I only had to ask him ONCE!  Best jalking partner EVER!!!
Also, I was able to try out my Fitbit and I must say I'm LOVING it!  I'm especially loving it on the days that I hit my 10 THOUSAND step goal, but on the days I don't, I feel like a big bum.

The best part about Sundays in our home is that Big D always serves us breakfast in bed.  He definitely knows the way to my heart, feed me and tell me I'm pretty!  
I've decided to focus on ONE word this year instead of having resolutions and I chose the word "GIVE".  Give more to those I love, give more to strangers, and never, ever give up!  I think I can do it!
We have been living in plumbing hell and the contractors will be out tomorrow to layout a timeline for construction.  All other projects will be put on hold until the upstairs bathroom and plumbing issues are completed!  I'm sure my Lil Man is so ready to have his bathroom back and I am SO ready for him to have it back!  BOYS... UGH!!!

We did manage to complete a small project this weekend that I will be sharing this week, so be on the look out!

This post was a crazy, chaotic, mixed up post, but that's my life... Beautiful chaos and I love it!
OHHHH!!! And if you have not heard this song, get on it now!
Have an awesome week and check back for our latest project!

Family Recipes in the Home

We received a handwritten recipe from my Husband's Nanny after she passed away and I wanted to make sure that I displayed it and didn't just throw it in a drawer.  

After redoing our dining room this year, I though framing her recipe and displaying it in there was perfect!

It's so very simple, but exactly what I had in mind!  Don't throw handwritten letters or recipes in junk drawers, display them in beautiful frames and add a touch of family throughout different rooms in your home.
