A Few Changes Around the House

Last week, my beautiful yard-seen behind my daughter here- went from this lush green lawn with a few toys scattered around it

to this-a desolate flood ravaged scene of destruction
(the water spurting from the fire hose is from the basement of my house-we're still raking mud out of there)

In better news, I got an idea and ran with it and made some changes before the destruction.

After a couple of weeks with power tools-my dining room went from this

to this

another angle of the beforeI love the change

I did get some outlet covers and put them up last night-and I still need to decorate. I got mini-shades for my chandelier that I need to recover and the fabric for my window treatments. But unfortunately, all of that will have to wait until I get the flood cleaned up.
