get your updates! Get your spring cure 2009 Apartment Therapy updates!

We got some done this week. Not as much as I would have liked, but the weather was against us and now the boy child is throwing up a bit. So, here it goes.....





Here is the door to the laundry from the kitchen. This is a test, to see if I would like all the trim in the house painted white. It is currently brown. I think I like it, but it would be me painting, and there is a lot of trim, so I want to make sure. The green is the color of the kitchen, the tan color is the color of the dining room- I am going to paint that wall green tonight.... Here is the new header. I have painted it the color of the cabinets. The wall to the left is the one to be painted green.



The header on the cabinet side.




This was the color of the cabinets before I painted them.



Here is the updates on the bedroom project-




BEFORE- (after I took away all the fabrics etc... from last year)

Someone asked me how I was going to use the window. I don't now really. It doesn't overlook much because it's so high- but sometimes we open it up for breezes etc... so I told the Mr. I wanted the frame put on hinges, so that I can open it up and prop it open for the fresh air...

Here is what he came up with-
Here is us checking it out. It can raise all the way to the ceiling and now I just have to design a way to hold it up securely


Here is the other side to the bedroom- stripped of all its frou frou fabrics....

Here is where we are at now....

There is still a lot to do- find new bed linens, fix the Mr bedside table. Paint the trim. Clean the rug. Design a bar for the headboard frame thing. Get a new ceiling fan and install it. Put in a new door (we have that already) and paint the closet.
There is still plenty to do, but we have gotten this far!

Wow, you've got quite a lot done! The new header looks great.and what aclever idea to cover the window above the bed! I really must wander over to AT and see what's up with the spring cure. Since all I'm doing that's apartment related is boring cleaning and sorting stuff, I didn't get involved in the cure this time around...

I really think that the cure should be more about " the boring cleaning and sorting stuff." What to keep and what to give away- and cleaning seems to be the heart of his message (IMHO)

I have a window above our bed too. It is covered by the long drapes now, but part of my cure was to find a better way to cover it. Your idea is brilliant. I will be swiping it for my project. Thanks!
