Our Patio

Still working on the bathroom but thought I would post a picture of our outdoor living space.
I love our new outdoor furniture. It has been so nice to go outside and sit and enjoy a cup of coffee (in the morning or evening) and read a book.

You might notice two grills...which I am not the biggest fan of but we have our original grill and one that the previous homeowners left. I had originally wanted to sell the grill they left in a garage sale, but I think Alec likes the option of having two grills because one is propane and one is charcoal so it looks like we just might end up with two grills.

Be our guest...

Today, thank goodness I am going to start painting our guest bathroom! It has been a long process to get it ready to paint. 

First we had to remove the wallpaper...not fun. As we were removing it we found that it was the bare drywall underneath so that meant only one thing...Alec was going to have to mud it and sand the walls out. Alec did that process 3 times...every time he came out of the bathroom from sanding he was covered in he said, "I look like a giant powdered donut." I have to agree. The bathroom was covered in dust. It was disgusting, so I cleaned it up yesterday and caulked along the baseboards. Now were ready for the paint.

Here is the bathroom before with the tragic wallpaper...I'll post updated pictures when I've finished painting.
