What have we been up to?

It's been a bit quiet on the blog front for me lately - one might wonder what we've been up to. 

Jake and I are celebrating our 1-year anniversary this weekend. We have been married a whole year now! It surely doesn't feel like a year and I take that as a good sign of what is to come. We had a big year (as witnessed by this post, our year in review) and know just as much now as we did last year that we are meant for each other. 

So what does a couple do on their one year anniversary? Well who knows what most couples would do, but what we're doing is tackling this:

Our bedroom. Sorry the picture is blurry - I was trying the whole "no flash makes the picture better" thing but I don't have the most steady hand. 

Our bedroom is a hodge podge of furniture - the dresser from my room growing up, my favorite turqouise console table I got in Knoxville at an antique store, our new queen matress (with no bed yet), two computer stands as night stands, and (what you can't see because it is in the corner) my favorite giraffe chair. 

My concept for this room was browns, turquoise, deep reds, and giraffe print. As of Saturday morning, the room was white like the rest of the house was at one point. Not anymore! The room is painted, I'm working on a few projects involving spray paint and scrapbook paper, searching for a good bed at a cheap price, and soon there will be the "after" picture to go with this ho-hum before picture.

happy anniversary!!! i assume this is the table project you were talking about in your comment on my post? i cut the paper to fit how i wanted in a dry-run first, then i coated the surface of the drawer in mod podge. i laid the paper back down how i wanted, let it dry for a bit so it would be stable, then i did a thick coat of mod podge on top of it. you can get shiny or matte finish mod podge, and it's really easy to use - just brush on under and over the paper! i'll keep my eye out for giraffe print ;)

Hey! Thanks for the info. I found some at JoAnn's (you were right - amazing selection) and sprayed the tables today. I'll be tackling the mod podge tomorrow so I'll have to post how it goes. I also found some awesome paper to use in a kitchen project:D
