On my mind...

I'm always thinking about the next project or must-haves for our home and love having this blog so that I can document my ideas and thoughts without having to try to remember everything :).  So, THANK YOU for being my outlet and letting me get on "paper" what's on my mind!

For the kitchen...paint! Today it is a deep red and in an effort to lighten it up, we'll be painting it hardwick white by Farrow & Ball.  This is the same color we used when painting our kitchen cabinets in the old house and absolutely loved it!  I'm also wanting some metal barstools.  We have three red saddle style seats (like these) which are great but they don't fit well at the bar.  A square seat will allow three to fit more comfortably plus I love the look of the metal ones :).

For the living room/den, I'm thinking about moving our current coffee table which is wood (and I adore it), out to the sunroom/"man cave", and going with an ottoman instead.  This will provide for extra seating when needed and also serve as a foot rest for almost all seats in the room.  I'm also on the hunt for a couple small storage ottomans to hide the kiddo's toys and provide extra seating when needed.  The trick is that I have to find two that will fit under our console table so I'm on the hunt.

The sunroom/"man cave" is in desperate need of some attention so we'll be purchasing a rug and a sofa in the very near future.
