Winter Blahs...

(Written in December)
I've been quite busy with work projects but not many significant projects around the house. I haven't stepped foot in the trailer because it's been really cold...some weeks the temperature was in the single digits and most days hovering between 30 and 40 degees.  Brrr.

I have tackled a few small house projects to make my Mid-Century ranch home shine a bit brighter and to ward off the winter blahs:

Painted a wall turquoise and put together an Ikea bookcase to gather most my books in one place.

Hung a retro style starburst chandelier over the stair well. I purchased it from over the summer.
It only took 5 months to get it hung up. It was not an easy install standing over the stairs on a lean to ladder, holding the chandelier, AND trying to wire it. There were mistakes and plenty of profanity but in the end it was well worth it!

Spring is coming and with a brain FULL of ideas I can't wait for it to come!
