September Acronym

Okay, I’m losing it.  Yesterday I thought, “Now that it’s September, this super hot and dry summer will be behind us.”  Um, no.  September was last month.  Because it’s October, here’s September’s monthly acronym recap.

Stripping down:  Peeling off wall paper backing and testing removal methods.

Excavating:  Digging up the back patio, fountain, and retaining walls.  

Prepare to drool: Over Ben’s giant ginger cookie recipe.

Transformations and transitions:  Giving a brass bar cart a chrome face lift and using silverware trays to organizing a few drawers.

Engineered art:  Five dollar engineering prints turned to large bedroom art.

Making progress and plans:  Painting the entertainment center (well, most of it), getting concrete cut to lower the pool house door (and a peek at the back yard plans).

Birthday bash: Dog themed with invitations and hand-made details.

Eco boost:  Picking out, preparing for, and installing new, energy-efficient windows.

Repair and repaint: Fixing a broken picture frame and painting dipped table legs.


Hopefully the cooler weather will push us back inside to work.  I’m hoping to work on the bedrooms.  Based on the survey, I know several of you are looking for more decor driven posts, and so are we (well I definitely am).  Also, we had a few requests to post more often than once each week day.  To test it out, I’ll be back with another quickie project this afternoon.  What do you think about posting more often?  So we can share a little project here and there?
