The door jams were looking mighty rough…
I took some sandpaper and roughed up the knobs and the door jams… it didn’t take me longer than a minute a knob. After I sanded them off I wiped them all down with a rag and stuck them in some Styrofoam sheets we had from an appliance we had purchased. The sheet made the perfect little stand for the doorknobs to stick into for easy spray painting. I even stuck the screws that went with the knobs in this way as well.
It’s a simple little change but one that makes the house feel a bit more understated and lends a little more of a casual vibe.
And now I’m not annoyed every time I go to the bathroom and see one silver and one brass knob.
I love how the door into the master now matches the knobs inside of the master…
Here is Drew’s room all closed up. He’s napping… and now she’s napping… the one quiet moment in my day. Ahhh… a sigh of relief. 🙂 Focusing in on the knob like this shows off how horrendous our trim looks. I’ll just tack in on the list of things to do….
Day in the Life
AJ’s sister Meredith was back at Mass General this past weekend (for those of you who are new to the blog she had a heart transplant a little over a year ago). The kids and I went in this morning to visit. Just take a wild guess what Drew is shoving into his mouth… 🙂 Yes, a cookie. I tried a new recipe from the Ambitious Kitchen last night and make cookies without flour and without butter (recipe here). They tasted healthier but not bad thanks to the peanut butter and chocolate chips (isn’t it true that almost anything could taste good with chocolate chips?). Okay, and just look at Drew’s head of hair… those curls….
I was late for church on Sunday. Why? I thought I could fit in making Elle this little baby band before walking out the door. But don’t tell me it doesn’t look adorable on her. 🙂
