So....we decided it would be fun to include a little picnic.
Denver and Bree also joined us for the day-
But....the weekend was not all about play....we put in a few hours of work too.
- upstairs bedrooms- beds put together and dressed
- a couple light fixtures hung
- bunkie cleaning
- furniture painting
- yard cleaning
- family room...pretty much finished
We were hoping the blue roof would be finished....but it is not....maybe next weekend.
Most all the accessories were things I already had....the coffee table is a vintage canoe turned coffee table.
Danny had to have his man "sofa" they all recline.
When I was a little girl my Mother would let my sister and I take some of her old left over things and use them in a little tree playhouse we made for ourselves in the backyard....this room reminds me of those days....it's more of an adventure to see if you can get it to work together....and feel comfortable.
What does this room consist of? Well....
"I have six pillows in this room...none of which go together.... the lamps don't match ....throw in some curtains doing their own thing, a couple man sofas, and a "girly" chair, a cut up canoe for a coffee table, two yellow stools, a ladies buffet and a cozy rug.
Yep....that's how we roll...kind of crazy.
In the middle of work...we stopped for a lunch break to check out the arts and crafts event downtown. Danny saw these and had to have one....They are made from vintage postoffice boxes....The lady turns them into banks.
Fun little break.....then it was back to making beds-
Here is a little peek at the upstairs bedrooms-
Remember the story behind this quilt?
The 3 bears- (something about 3 sea-foam mint bears =)
When I finish the rooms I will share all the details....but they do have names
The Nest and The 3 Bears.
(when I share the finished rooms I will tell you the story behinds their names)
Spent a whole lot of time cleaning the Bunkie-
It was a good weekend at the cabin.
side note- just found this article at Apartment Therapy- How to Make your Old Furniture work in a new space....perfect....guess I'm not alone. =)
