family beach house, out on eastern Long Island.
It was a work weekend.
I didn't even take many pictures!
We took down old wallpaper below a kitchen chair rail.
And -- with the supervision of the dog in the lower left corner -- put up beadboard paper.
It's not painted yet; it needs to cure until my sister gets out there and paints it.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
We also painted -- or more accurately -- primed some furniture.
We'll be back in two weeks to finish those jobs.
And we covered two old red-pink club chairs with striped slipcovers.
|Taken with my phone. Too tired by then to go get the camera!|
The slipcovers are vastly too big for the chairs -- next time out,
I bring my sewing machine and get to work tucking and shrinking the slips!
But bit by bit, we're giving the beach house that beachy look.
Now if I could only find some plastic lobsters . . . .
And speaking of changes -- what a difference a year makes.
My twin great-nephews, last October:

And this October:
|Happy first birthday, boys!|
