This weekend was huge for the hubby and I getting things done around the house. The hubby mowed our lawn for the first time… until our mower broke. Then he borrowed our neighbors to finish up the front yard. We bought a new mower on Saturday. Our new mower has a Honda motor. How fancy! All in all, the yard took a little more than an hour to mow, which isn’t too bad for a half acre +.
What else did we do this weekend? Why, more painting, of course!
We were painting maniacs this weekend. My biggest accomplishment was getting our kitchen painted. I had never planned on painting our kitchen, but with the electrical work we had done it became a must. So, from boring beige to sanctuary green the walls went, and now our kitchen looks so much nicer!
This was definitely the trickiest room I’ve ever had to paint. I went all out and painted all the way down behind my oven and the entire nook surrounding my fridge. I had to paint so many nooks and crannies, but the worst by far were the spaces above our cabinets. My back still hurts just thinking about painting up there!
It’s not often that it pays to be short, but being 5’5″ worked in my favor when it came to painting above our cabinets. I still had to scrunch to one side to paint up there, but there was no way the hubby could have done it at his ginormous height of 6’2″. I even had to free hand some parts of the ceiling because I couldn’t physically get into the little spaces to tape. All of my hard work paid off because it looks amazing. Now that it is a beautiful, rich color, I can’t imagine not having my kitchen painted. Bye-bye, boring beige. Hello, beautiful green!

Good, you’re close enough to come and help paint my house!
Thanks for the laugh (about the mower)…
