Okay, well, I am either not stressed or soooo stressed I don't realize it and am thus going SUPER CRAZY around here. ANYWAY.
I love Pinterest and I actually use it. I find recipes and ideas and then pin them for later use. I guess some people are overwhelmed by Pinterest or pin things but don't use them. I do! I love being able to open a board and see pictures right there of things I want to do. I've gotten some great ideas (like the soap scum remover!) and really found only a few recipes we don't care for. Yay for Pinterest for keeping life (p)interesting!
I've been decorating and changing things up around here. We had the house repainted in March and, since then, we've needed something new on the mantel. After living with a borrrring mantel wall for several months, I finally decided it needed a big mirror. Thankfully, we had one on hand, thanks to a friend who was remodeling their bathroom and getting rid of their old mirror:

Star will not be spray painted. Ever.
I also spray painted the knobs on our new china cabinet. Instead of brass, they are now black and closely match this:
Now, what's next? I am spray painting two chairs that sit at our island, and our UGLY white and brass knobs in our bathroom. Those will be wrapped in twine and we plan to glaze our cabinets. That I might farm out, since it looks like it is a PITA, what with sanding and everything. (I think black, white and green will be the color scheme in there.) After that, I think I have some chairs I want to re-cover...
