project-filled weekend

It was a fabulous (ok, semi fabulous) weekend for crafting and our home is coming along wonderfully. My goal for Sunday was to finish the window treatments. Unfortunately, World Market, Bed, Bath & Beyond AND Anthropologie had other plans for me....sigh. I found a panel that I loved at each store and when I searched for it's mate, I was told that there was only one. stinking. panel. left. It felt a little bit like my heart was being stomped on. (It's a good thing I'm not dramatic...)

However, I compromised and purchased the 84' panels instead of the 95' ones for our room and they look good. But not great. I haven't made up my mind on if they are keepers yet. I also spray painted everything I could get my hands on and reupholstered our kitchen stools. As soon as I put our apt back together (we had the carpets cleaned this morning) I will post pictures. :)

In other news, Preston got transferred to the Sammy's location right next to our house...Woohoo!! We are both fans of the 6 min commute vs the 36 min one! And Sebastian has decided he is terrified of the two 3 lb dogs that live downstairs. He shakes and won't leave my side when they try to play with him, I'm not sure if that is typical of a St. Bernard....

And, because our home is chaos, he is some picture goodness from somebody who actually has their home in order:
