Big Projects

I woke up this morning stiff but not in spasms. That's good. I have a lot to do. We decided to head to the flower dept and our local hardware stores and pick up the smaller plants for the yard. We had a ball. It is a lot of hard work but we are getting our landscaping done for $6000 less by doing it ourselves!

We also decided to keep our hutch and not get a new one. We are no longer fans of the country oak look. We love the shape of the hutch just not the color. Plus it means a lot to us since Steve's mom got it for us right after we were married. We decided to paint it flat black. It turned out super. I may change the hardware on it in the future. I will have to look around for new hardware. Not sure what I would want to put on there. Now all I need is my sideboard (still in the ville- ahem anyone want to deliver it?).  Well off to bed. Night all!
