When it came time to write this week’s Two Blondes and a Stan, I went through hundreds of photos and a dozen different ideas…should I tell y’all everything that has happened in this past week…would y’all even believe me, if I did?  Where do I even start?

The truth…I shall begin with the truth.  So grab a good cup of coffee, and sit a spell with me as we take a visit to the Birmingham Museum of Art and baby steps toward getting Abby’s bathroom complete.

Once upon a time, a boy met a girl…they got married…and eventually had a precious baby girl.  Flash forward seventeen years….

This precious baby girl is now seventeen…and keeps us on own our toes and on the road…and that is how we ended up at the Birmingham Museum of Art and not at home working on renovation projects.

After we got though celebrating Holi at the BMA, we got back to reality...working on Abby's bathroom.

Ziva has been fascinated with the home renovation.  Her latest curiosity--the drill.

Ziva did not like the drill!  I really wish I would have videoed the scene.

Even with all the weekend happenings, we did get some projects checked off the list…bath tub baby steps, baby, bath tub baby steps!

Now, it is time for a sneak peek of the home decor and wall art……………….

I like to position everything and live with it for awhile before I commit.  My number one tip for home renovation is hang wall art before painting that last coat of paint…live with it, and make sure you love where it is.  If you decide that you do, simply take it all down and paint that last coat.  If you decide you don’t like where you put all your art, simply take it all down, patch the nail holes, and try again!

My picked gas cans–love them, and I must find more to make into lamps!

Today has been a busy day.  Abby, Lucy, and I made a quick road trip to Columbus, Mississippi for Abby to participate in a FlashPointOmniMedia radio show.  No home projects were accomplished, but we had much fun and refueled our creative spirit.

Abby, Lucy, and I made a quick road trip to Columbus, Mississippi for Abby to participate in a FlashPointOmniMedia radio show. We spotted this Pepsi can painted on the side of a building in Gordo, Alabama.  Of course, we had to stop and take a few photos for Abby’s blog. No home projects were accomplished, but we had much fun and refueled our creative spirit.

Thanks for sitting a spell with me.  Be sure to keep up with all the randomness and renovation by clicking on the Facebook and Twitter buttons on the right sidebar.

Stay tuned to Sweet Sorghum Living as we reveal all the details about the home renovation–from paint colors to where to buy.

Much love,

Chasidy

    I love the wall collage too! Mine is still a work in progress. Can’t wait for you to see what I came up with! I will be posting on it soon. I’m sure the bathroom will look amazing when it is finished.
