September Accomplishments

September Accomplishments and a look ahead to October projects:

I’m so happy it’s October because I adore fall.  It’s one of our busier seasons of the year as far as kids and activities go but I wouldn’t change a thing.

Watching cross country meets and band competitions are what makes us happy as parents.

I was able to get lots accomplished in September so I thought today would be a great time to recap what all was accomplished around here.  Also I’d like to look ahead to what is in store for October.

Sort of like a to do list with a few check marks.

I will start with my dining room which I finished at the end of August but it was a big one and I was happy it was (almost) done. Plus I found some art at a yard sale this month that is totally going in there! Is a room EVER complete?  Check out the room now but be sure you come back in October to see the vintage art I found to hang in there.

I finally was able to paint a few pieces of my own furniture.  I had been painting more for clients the past couple of months so my projects get put on the back burner.

I finally painted the bright yellow bench that has been glaring at me for months!!! I used a new to me product called Americana Chalky Finish paint and I loved it.

I also added a personal touch with the hand painted 29!

This isn’t furniture but I also got crafty with paint for my fall decor.

The very best part of fall so far was my fall home tour.  Hosting that was super fun and I am thankful for all of the kindness and sweet comments you guys always shower me with!

You sure know how to make a girl feel GOOD!

Now for October…it’s Master Bedroom time!! This room is getting a makeover.

I’ve already painted color samples on the wall, decided on a paint color…I think…not one of the samples though.

I’ve moved furniture around and choose fabrics.  I have a few lofty goals and this may not get completed in October but it sure will get started…completed if at all possible.

Then there are a few Halloween projects that just may get thrown in for good fun.

Thanks for joining me here as I share…you all make this gig fun!!
