I Love the Boomerang Room

School really needs to start back or I'm going to start shopping way too much! I stopped by the Boomerang room today and found a great red kitchen cart. Matt and I were just discussing storage options since we want to turn our pantry into a half bath one day and this magically appeared.

Here are the pics of the cart in the kitchen. It's amazing how the red cart matches so well with the cabinets! It needs some cleaning up - but it was too cool to pass up! The owner of Boomerang room also threw in the cool veggie drawer for a nice price! Good place to store onions, etc.

Orange Door

One door down, two to go. We really like how the color turned out! We still need to prime and paint the top part of the house.

White No More

Don't have much time to type a lengthy post, but here are some pictures of our most recent progress on the exterior. Enjoy!

Blue Skies

We've been busy trying to get this house's a slow process but I know it's going to pay off. So far we have the lower level primed all around the house and the front porch ceiling painted sky blue! We liked the idea of a blue ceiling from traditional southern homes - they love their porches down south!

Still need to prime the overhang on the porch - but this is a good pic to see the blue porch ceiling!

Porch Ceiling

We decided to go with the top, lighter color. We are going to accent it with a coolish gray-white trim and bright orange doors.

Oops, how did this picture end up in here???

So, we put up the countertops on the particle board a few weeks ago (just to kick our butts into gear). We had to take them down unfortunately - since they are not sealed yet and we don't technically know how to install them. Hopefully we will be getting some much needed help from one of Matt's coworkers who does really awesome woodwork!

Here's a taste of what it will look like. Try to imagine the clear glass tile backsplash that is sitting in our basement....whomp. Oh well, you can only do one thing at a time!
