August Acronym

Hello and happy Labor day to those of you in the U.S.  Hope you’re having a great long weekend!

Almost done: This is the story of our lives, nearly finished projects.  In August, we made a lot of progress in the main bathroom.  We’ve added a Sky Tube for natural lighttrimmed out theroom, and got everything painted.  Just have to build false drawer fronts and we can call the bathroom a wrap.

Uprooted:  A few walls and a floor.  One load bearing wall in the garage which we replaced with a beam, and the wet bar in the pool house is seeing a little demo, too.

Getting into sewing: I busted out my sewing machine to make drop cloth curtain panels for the living room and dyed them for a moody look.  Then I turned plain striped fabric into an X patterned pillow.

Unveiled:  The finished roof, shiny new garage doors, and how I make mood boards in Photoshop.

Small projects:  Adding the tops to our entertainment center base, fixed our broken couch, and V started tearing off the kitchen wallpaper.

Tried new things:  Norwex cleaning cloths (love those!) and a new Mohawk Home rug (also love!).

And now we’re in September.  Where does the time go?

What did you cross off your list in August?  What are your plans for September?   Are you excited for hot cider and apple crisp?  I know I am!

  1. Cross of my list – birthday party. That took over. I am SO over summer! Bring on Fall! I love pumpkin patches, apple picking, Halloween and raking leaves. Looking forward to getting the last crops of the garden picked and raking the soil to prep for next year come Oct. Love those pillows!
