2016 seems to be a year of finishing for me. I started the American Patchwork & Quilting’s 2016 UFO Challenge (and I’ll share photos of my completed projects soon). I’ve also decided to tackle one room in my house each month to “finish” it. We have a lovely house, but I’ve always felt that it was missing that little something, those touches that really make rooms beautiful. I’m not expecting to get any phone calls from Veranda, but I at least wanted to get the pictures hung on the wall. So, I’m tackling one room each month. The January project was the dining room. Here’s the Before picture, from a few days after we moved in last year:
And, the After picture. I obviously got those pictures hung and I used Christmas money from my parents for some new dishes and a table cloth.
The kitchen’s next!
