Removed a Door

When Nick and I moved into this house, we discussed the door between the kitchen and his office.  It wouldn't stay wide open, so I suggested removing the door from the hinge.  Nick wanted to leave the door so he close off his office if he needed it quiet.  So, I found one of my rocks (yes, I have a collection of rocks) that's flat, to prop against the door to keep open.
While planning the kitchen design, I had planned on buying a glass door to replace the door between the kitchen and office.  I talked to Nick about it and he was okay with removing the door permanently.  We realized, in the two years (this week was our anniversary of home ownership) we've lived here, Nick has only closed that door once. 

Door on:

Door off (with new artwork):

I like it. Nick likes it. I think we will finished off the doorway when the kitchen is remodeled.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

AC Woes

Here's how the week went:

Uh oh! AC is broken! Florida's mid-summer nightmare! #hothothot


Yes that is the temp inside our house right now!! #hothothot
The temporary fix until we figure out what's wrong with the central air. Livin in the bedroom. #maxfan #maxcool


AC is fixed!  Needed a new capacitor,  $200.  

So happy to be in AC again!

Finished Bathroom!

I think I can officially say that the hall bathroom is done!  The curtains are up now, which I started last week.

Here it is:

Here are some other shots I love:

So it's all done! Yippee! I'm done with a whole room!  It took almost 2 years to be done with a room.  Hopefully it takes less than that to get another room done.

Shower Curtains

I have been looking at flanking the tub with shower curtains.  I think it looks pretty nice, and bring some symmetry to the bathroom.

I had planned on making dummy panels, but needed the right fabric.  I wanted to have pattern, but I didn't want it to look feminine, or childlike.  I found come nice blue fabric, with dots that appear in a circular pattern.  So I set to work sewing them, and adding grommets to the top.

The colors are not accurate, but it does show the pattern.  Next week, I will be installing them in the bathroom.

AFI Top 100 Update:  We watched #34, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.  It's actually kind of dark for a children's movie.
