Feng Shui

I have been reviewing my feng shui books.With the economy the way it is,we can all use some help!!!! Most of the main floor has been de-cluttered.I have read in the books and online that a red door is very lucky and welcoming .So I finally did it!! I painted our front door red!! I love it!!! I think our luck has changed,the day before I painted I commented to someone I know at Jazzercise that I liked her bag.She said she won it.The day I painted the door I went to class and the lady came up to me and said I should have her bag and gave it to me!!!!! I'd say that was good feng shui!!!!!

Leaky pipes

Yikes!!!! We had a leak !!!! We discovered Monday our bathtub was leaking into our sons room (their room is directly under the bathroom).We had to cancel our day trip to Chicago and head to Menards.At first hubby thought it was just the drain leaking when he took it apart so we went to Menard's and bought a new drain stop But of course after changing it out and more leaking water he saw a cracked part of a pipe.Another trip to Menard's and finally it is fixed!!!!!

The Big Reveal!!!!

I have had my Victorian sofa home for a month now and we had it in the living room waiting for a wall to be fixed. I had to temporarily put the sofa by my huge picture window w/ the drapes closed because we get so much sun there and I was warned of the sofa fading. I am excited the wall is finally done!!!! I didn't want to post pictures until I found the perfect pillows but who knows when that will be!!!! LOL This sofa was my xmas present and the reupholstering was my anniversary present!!! I always ask for furniture for presents!!!!! Here are before and after.....

Patching up walls!!!

I haven't posted about my sofa being home yet because we had to patch the wall where it will end up. When we rewired the living room we had to "pull" out the old wires and in some areas we had to break open the wall because the wires were not easy to switch. So I ended up with a huge hole on the wall where the Victorian sofa would go. Another messy project!!!!!! Luckily it is now finished .Here are before and afters!!!
