House and such

Oh yeah, I'm updating our blog. :) I'm excited to show you what more we've done to our front room, slow and steady wins the race!

Yes indeed, we dyed our maroon leather sofas.... twice! The first attempt ennded up looking more like a brown you'd find in a baby diaper. We then ordered a more deep chocolate brown for the desired aesthetic. What a process! The last step is to condition the leather, then I'll post the finished pictures.

Another big project was replacing all of our inefficient aluminum single payne windows. That, too, was quite a process especially since I was in the middle of being super sick and in bed (thank goodness for antibiotics!).

I still need to get the "after" shots from inside, but we need to paint the new sills first.
And then we have the drapes... aren't they fabulous! :)

Pictures of the pillows I'm making will come soon too. Enjoy!
