paint and fixtures

September 16th, 2009

We took advantage of the especially long weekend over Labor Day weekend to get a few things completed around the house. Our garage now matches the house (mostly).

And finally we replaced the skeleton of the fake woodgrained 60s light fixture in our kitchen with a more modern and highly tactilely pleasing blow-fish looking pedant from Ikea.

I’m amazed how small changes make my life so much better. Having our garage finally match our house – in colors we like – makes the house seem cleaner, the trim whiter, the grass greener, the garden less weedy…
