I finished the office part of my family room today. My dad and I sawed an old Empire library table (not in great shape) in half and I attached it to the wall to make a long console desk under the cabinets that were already there. It will be a handy place for writing and working on assemblages.

After living with it for thirty days, I decided the living room was dreary and needed some help. So, I've spent the last couple days reworking it. I hung a bright white embossed wallpaper (on clearance at Lowe's 90% off!), painted the upper part of the walls a lighter shade of gray and trimmed is bright white. I love the results.
About the Es pictures: one is him crawling out of the works of the sleeper sofa to bite me, another is him helping make the bed, and the third is him helping rearrange furniture. He's a big help, believe me.

While I was visiting my parents last week my dad and I built a new sink for my bathroom and I got it plumbed today. It's made of an old treadle sewing machine base and reclaimed wood from an old door. I'm very excited to be rid of the particle board monstrosity that was there when I moved in (pics included).
