Avant /Après

 Toujours dans ma phase déco,j'ai entrepris la grosse job de repeindre mon classeur. Voici le avant, tout noir...
...et le après, blanc avec du chevron gris. C'est long mais ce n'est pas difficile à faire. Nettoyer et poncer, une bonne couche de primer en spray ''Rustoleum'' et 2 couche de peinture blanche en canette pour métal.Pour le chevron, j'ai peind les portes en gris (en spray aussi) , j'ai masqué avec du ''Frogtape'' et repeind avec le blanc.La seule difficultée, bien mesurer pour que chaques chevrons soit égales. Ta-da! Nouvelle vie à mon classeur!

Oh glorious day!!!!

When I buy something, it's never on a whim....but this! I HAD to have it. I've been searching for a few days and researching and comparing and....you get the point. But when I drove by a store that had these in their window, my car just parked itself in their parking lot.I walked in, didn't even looked at the price tag and threw my credit card on the counter. I was now the proud owner of 2 new Eames chairs.Yes they will serve the purpose of sitting chairs, but also extra chairs for guests at the dinner table and photography props. No guilt here. My husband says to keep repeating that to myself! lol

C'est les petites choses qui font la différences!

Toujours dans ma quête de redécorer ma maison, j'ai passé beaucoup de temps sur Pinterest et j'ai trouvé cette idée géniale. Beau et fonctionel en même temps. Je dois souvent répéter à ma fille de se laver les mains. Maintenant, mon beau petit cadre parle pour moi!

Happy Mail

 I finally got my photo book from Shutterfly in the mail. Happy dance!!!It looks great. I made sure to leave white spaces at every page so I can write all the details of our trip to Disney.It's a great size to...8x8. I love it so much that I ordered another one (this time 7x7) with Blurb.They have a cute Instagram album.I asked my hubby to give it to me for Mother's day.This one will be soft cover but all white also.Can't wait! Aaaah!!!

In a decorating mode!

 So I'm in this weird mood where I have to redo all my house.Yes ,its an expensive mood. I'm starting with my office/craft room/fireplace room.The log wall was a dark wine red and I had totally NO room for storage.I decided to paint everything white (to go with my Cape Cod look ) and buy a bunch of cabinets from IKEA. Looooove IKEA! This is a before...
....and this is an after. Not there yet...still have shelves to put up, take down the big black frame, paint the file cabinet (white of course) ,sew some new curtains and change the wicker chair for a fab arm chair. Yep! More spending ahead! I also ordered 2 new Eams chairs that will go in the living room. So exited to get them. Soooo gonna post a pic of those babies!Well....back to work!

My new obsession

 Can't get enough of the new chocolate Philly cheese. Somebody get it out of my hands!!!!It's like eating a fresh chocolate cheese cake but without the baking and the crust. Heaven!!!
On the other side of things, my obsession for rain boots has made me buy a pair that are RED! If you know anything about me, you will know I hate red....but these boots are just soooo adorable.Couldn't resist!

My première page mixed media

Ma fille a eu un cours de ''mixed media'' l'autre jour et elle m'a montré comment faire.Et bien oui....j'ai eu la piqûre. Trop ''le fun'' . Je vais probablement en intégrer dans mes cours de scrap dans les écoles!
