FALL CHANGES AROUND THE HOUSE




After pleading for help with a good recipe for turkey burgers I am now equipped with enough information to eat them every night for a month.  Which I might do because even though I am creative around the house.........the kitchen is not my area of expertise.  

I always say that I put one in just for resale.

I am full on with getting everything ready for my room install at the UMCH.  I met the electricians yesterday to change out the overhead lights.  The painters are coming on Thursday.  I am vacillating on my paint color.......thinking maybe I should go darker.


Butch with Oak Street Electrical donated his time to change out the 3 lights and move the cable for me.  It seems like everyone is pitching in!

Going to Ikea today for some power shopping....not really looking forward to dragging all of the boxes off shelves but it's gotta be done.  I did go yesterday to look at everything I need and write down the info.  That should make it easier.

Or not.  Could get distracted.  

And now the reason for this post.....one more picture of what has been happening around here.  The only new thing I bought is the black vase on the top shelf [left bookcase].  Ikea.  6.00.


Still working on a few things.......waiting for a nice sunny day to take some pictures.

Kick Tuesday in the butt......

It looks great Sherry. So bummed I was not able to fly out there and help you girls with the install (hubby had to travel to India so Im stuck with the kiddos). Hoping to get out there soon for a visit.

Loving your fall look! And how great is IKEA?? So jealous you guys have one. Nashville is so behind the times. And your UMCH is going to be beautiful! Cannot wait to see it completed. What a wonderful thing!

whoa!! did you change out the coastal vibe in favor of a belgian vibe in there? whatever you did, i love it. I thought you had white club chairs? And some kind of great abstract turquoise art? Does that make me a stalker that I know that picture so well?

This is one of those posts that makes me crazy ~ last week I thought my neutrals needed some color, so I changed it all up. And now you post this, making me wish I had not a thread of color!

Awesome room, Sherry. I love the pair of pine(?) cabinets flanking the fireplace. Are those antiques? Can you tell us where they came from? Thanks! Loi

What did we do before Ikea? I think it's "Tip it Tuesday"?

Love the mantel. Oh how I wish the ceiling wasn't so high where our fireplace is. I would take a page from you book and sort of dupe, but no matter what I put there it gets lost. :) xo

Loving your fall changes...the mantle looks magazine cover ready!

Holly said...

That is a picture perfect photo if you ask me. I'm in love with those shelves of yours too. And go Butch! That's awesome that so many people have helped you out. Good luck at IKEA.

Your room is just lovely! I am probably the only person in America who has never been to IKEA. I would have to travel 4 hours to get to the closest one. Is it worth it? Thanks for the book recommendation! Newest follower!

Kris @ Driven by Décor said...

Just when I think your fireplace and shelving are perfection, you one up yourself! Gorgeous!

Cindy said...

loving the fall look missy. really just popped in to say hi. It's been a minute. God speed at Ikea. Hope you sipped a truckload of Red Bull to zip through that place and load all them heavy boxes, since I swear there is NEVER anyone to help in that place. Good luck on installation day. Can't wait.

René said...

And just like that - Fall perfection! Glad the project is going well :).
