My last post was on my due date, and this post will take us back to the day after, August 28th. I had my 40 week appointment, and though Baby Smith was preparing to join the outside world, there was zero baby birthing action going on. My Mama had already been in town with us for a few days, and as usual, she was itching for a home improvement project. Together, she and Drew are a formidable team. I must have been loopy with hormones, because I agreed to let them refinish the parquet floor in our front room and entryway. Up until this point, the front room had served as a storage and staging area for the nursery project, and now that the Baby's room was ready, it was time for the front room to find meaning in life.
|The floor was really worn and the dark stain dated the room by a few decades.|
|We got it done the night before our Baby arrived - woohoo!|
Mama began the task of painting the front room, which we decided would be called, "The Lounge," while we were at the hospital, and she finished up after we got home. I felt bad that I couldn't help (not really), but it was fun listening to her and Drew work out the details of the room. Drew even built us two beautiful end tables. He came up with the design all by himself and they are just spectacular.
|Isn't the table lovely? And check out that gorgeous floor!|
|I love the beautiful detail work.|
|I really the fabric we chose for "my" chair.|
|Our neighbors gave us this orchid. It is the perfect addition to the lounge. I hope I can keep it alive!|
|Pretty pegs, all lined up.|
|Wedding day mementos|
|Reminders of our faith|
I wonder what crazy project I will agree to the next time I am pregnant? Gosh, it feels so good to be writing again! I want to get back to regularly posting - stay tuned!
