J+A Shower

In my last post I mentioned about us having a shower at our house. It was for our good friends Jessie and Amanda who are getting married October 8th. The shower was a co ed cookout, and it turned out great!

What would a blog post of mine be without a little before and after? so here goes..



I was a little concerned about looking redneck chic, but everyone loved them!

More pictures from the cookout...

The Hall of Doom

That's how I felt about it anyway.

I don't think I have to remind any of you my distaste for peeling wallpaper, and this hallway had a ton a peelin' that needed doin'. Ughhh. My wallpaper distaste has grown so much I had tried to hire this job out. Me hire a home project out? Yes, it's that bad. Luckily my dad was ready to jump in and help me tackle the project so I could get it down and over with and the only expense was the paint. Oh and food. I feed my help.

SN: The done and over with is because we're hosting a shower this weekend and I'm freaking out about all of my unfinished projects and strangers seeing my house. ekkk!!
On with the pictures. Before and After-ish. You'll see what I mean.
This hallway used to be lined with clocks. I asked for the one at the end to stay. I had just put the picture there to see if the placement of and existing screw would work to hang it.
Sorry for the mess. We were in the process of moving some things out.

In the painstaking process.
My dad and Yogi working hard!

The color came out much darker than I thought it was going to be, but Dustyn and I like it after all.
The truest color shot I could get. It doesn't look hunter green in person.

Now my plan is to fill in around the one GIANT picture with all of my tons of small picture frames. Won't Dustyn be so proud if I use up all the picture frames??

The print was given to us by out photographer after he used it for his bridal booth for a few shows. It is so huge it had to be custom framed. Talk about $$$$ at 50% off at Hobby Lobby it was going to be over $200. Luckily a friend's dad had just started doing custom framing as a side job and he was able to do it muchhh cheaper. Didn't he do a beautiful job??

Once again not a great picture, but I love the way this clock looks against the color!!
Now for a side job. I didn't want to put curtains up for these little windows, so I decided to frost them.

All of the pictures were taken on my phone since the batteries in my camera were dead. Sorry for the quality. :)

BIG THANKS to my dad, Emily, and my husband on this project!!
