This weekend was fairly productive. My husband finished painting the porch (yes, it really took that long) and I finished painting my daughter's bathroom. I'm definitely finding it increasingly difficult to perform even simple tasks these days. My stomach seems bigger than it should be at this point, and my boobs are out of control. I don't know how you more voluptuous women out there do it. The sad reality is that my boobs will get smaller again, only they'll look like empty tube socks. Oh the joys of pregnancy.
Enough of the "tmi", let's get back to the point of the post. Lots of lights got put up this weekend. Ok, not lots, but more than usual. First, here's the painted porch ceiling and the fan/light combo we chose.
I hate the way the ceiling color looks in this picture. It so does not do it justice. It's actually a really pretty pale blue in person. We ended up color matching it from our neighbor's porch ceiling which I love. It's BM Crystal Blue and I highly recommend it. Anyway, about the fan, as I posted before I'm not a huge fan of fans (pun intended). There was one that I liked better, but it was more expensive and this is the back porch. We'll save the more expensive ones for the front porch when and if we ever get around to having it rebuilt. I'll show some better pics of the porch later.
And here's the bathroom lights I ended up buying.
For some reason they look crooked in this picture. Probably due to my awesome photography skills.
Finally, here's the star lanterns that are in the back hallway on the second floor. There is a door that separates where my daughter's room, bathroom, playroom, and laundry room are from the front half of the second floor. Since this is going to be the kid's half of the second floor I thought it would be kind of whimsical to have the star lanterns in their little area.
The hallway is a work in progress, but I love love love these lights. They just put a smile on my face every time I see them. Did anyone else out there have a productive weekend?
