Yep, that's what I named this post. Why you ask? They are the two things that have dominated my past week...
Wait - I'll explain.
Ok, so here are some preliminary pictures of the dining room - which is the first thing that was in the forefront of last week for me.
I stress again, preliminary.
The furniture is not moved back into place, there are no window treatments up yet and NOTHING has been hung up in there. Yet. I hope you can get a feel for the color. It really is a chameleon shade. Sometimes it is more green. Sometimes more yellow/gold. Sometimes much more gray. It is Burlap - Sherwin Williams.
Here we go...
This is the wall next to the built in China Cabinet. See - the radio is still sitting there from when we were painting. Must paint to Classic Rock.
Next to one of the windows. AND some fake window treatments. It is a sheet. I was trying to get a feel for a White window treatment. I liked the feeling I got. A lot.
Just another shot of the room - the corner between the two large windows. And part of the ceiling. And my $17.99 clearance lamp from Hobby Lobby. hee hee. Love me some clearance stuff - especially when it was originally marked $89.99.
These are of the other corner of the room. Oh, I love this color so much more than the RED. It isn't YELLING at me anymore. It was angry before. Now it is much more calm. Peaceful. Serene even - even with all the mess. Ok, sorry, I went off on a tangent. I'm back.
The second shot also has the other China Cabinet in it - the one I want to move to the kitchen and PAINT. I got no responses on that one...maybe the jury is still out.
Looking out through the Dining room french doors into the living room. You can also see the door leading into the kitchen on the right. And Piper's sippy cup sitting on the table.
Oh, speaking of Piper....
here she is....with the second thing that dominated my last week
See that? She's getting a handful of cat food.
I feed her ALL THE TIME real food, yummy food. And every.single.time. she is on the floor anywhere near the kitchen...she makes a BEELINE for the dang cat food.
And does this
always before I can get to her. I am continually digging cat food out of her mouth. I know.
I can't even talk about it. Which is why I'm blogging about it I guess. *shaking head*
All I can figure out is that it must be good because she will refuse Banana. But loves this stuff.
At least she hasn't discovered the litter box. Yet.
