Roger made us a bench! I had some yellow chevron love.
I had some more yellow love in the deep dark recesses of our stairs and basement. We have lived in our home one whole year now (!!!) and Roger's mom and I finally painted that ugly space.
Whoa! right? Crazy yellow I know. It took me a year to try to figure out a paint color and when we got our hands on some free paint we added some of our own- a lot of different our owns. Then I went to Home Depot and they added more color to fix the color we damaged and then I still had to add a couple gallons of white paint and this is what we have. Sorry- after all that- I love it.

I am toying with it to see if I like the fabric for another fabric box.
Things are movin along
