If you didn't know, Katie (last month's feature sponsor) & I used to be room mates. Since we both just made big ol moves, I thought I'd give her some time to come up with her sponsor spot guest post. Since moving is stressful enough, why would you want to be stressed about writing for someone else's blog?? So here she is to share a bit about what she's done in her new house.
Lately my husband and I decided to buy a house. We found the perfect place for the two of us and our pup, put an offer and now its ours. Funny how life can find a way to make things challenging: my husband got called for a temporary deployment the day after we signed all the papers. It's been an interesting process, but so far it's been fun. For me, the theme for August is "making a house our home"
After the hubs and I picked some paint colors for the bedroom (Gypsy Rouge and Smoked Oyster) I felt like the room needed something else. Of course I haven't gotten around to unpacking the wall hangings, but I needed an easy accent to compliment my fine paint job. (Well, I probably shouldn't quit my day job, but its a good enough paint job for me!)
I noticed all of the wall plugs and light switch covers were dingy and old. Rather than spending $5 each to replace them all, I got a $4 can of hammered bronze spray paint, and went to town.
So far, it's been a nice little touch. I'm just about set up in the bedroom other than wall hangings. Next stop, painting the bathroom and setting up the kitchen.
