My Latest and Greatest Project!

Monday the 23rd we had our sweet little (well not so little) baby boy #4!

8 lbs. 14 oz.
22 inches
and his head is a whopping 38 and 1/2 cm (the nurse had to measure 3 times because she couldn't believe it - she said it was the biggest head she has EVER measured!)

So hopefully you'll forgive me if you don't see a post for a long while - plenty of projects I still plan to tackle in this house, I just don't know when I'll have the time or energy to start all that again!

Dining Chairs

I finally got my chairs back from the upholstery shop (they were there over a month)!!!
My dining room is now a complete Transformation!

If you remember I bought the chairs from my cousin Jess's store "Alice Lane" in Orem, Utah.  I was actually happy they were in an unfinished state so that I could pick the end result.  After having them painted white with a sturdy lacquer, I then had them upholstered in this light grey faux Ostrich leather product (it's actually vinyl).  I found the fabric online at

I also had the upholstery shop add a silver nail head trim around the seats.

My husband and I decided that with all the pattern going on in the rug, pillows, and walls we wanted to stick with something solid on the chairs, but I like the little bit of texture the fabric has on it.  Should be easy to keep clean too which is always a bonus!
