On Wednesday I spent the morning at the dentist. That will bring you back to reality.  I'm sure I have posted about my fear which I know is shared by many of you.  

My old dentist [ 23 years....not his age hee haw ] stopped using IV sedation so we had to breakup:(

 I am such a wuss when it comes to any kind of pain.....or to be clear.... just the very thought that there WILL be pain.

Don't get me wrong....I can get a cleaning no problem but pretty much anything else will require sedation.  

PSA..... there is a timeline on crowns and fillings. Don't think for a minute they will last forever.....because every 20 years or so you can expect to be in that chair getting the bad news that one or more needs to be replaced.  
Being a dentist is a thankless job cause NOBODY is ever excited to come for a visit.

I've got more before and after pictures of the Madison project today.  It is about 75% done!

Tuesday we explored the bedrooms.  Today I have the screened in porch.

This property was bought furnished.....a sea of brown furniture and not to sugarcoat it.....crap everywhere. 


So much stuff!

We started by painting the ceiling and walls the same color as  the outside.

And the trim... 

Clearing it out only keeping a few things.  Like a couple of dogs!  Henry and Chelsea

Painted this old beat up pie chest.....

Remember we picked up this painting at a flea market?

Ordered some Kingsley Bates outdoor furniture

After trying to arrange the furniture I realized that this stove was IN MY WAY!

So I flipped the room putting the table and chairs down here and the seating at the other end.  It makes sense since that is where the view of the lake is!

We ordered this square table with 2 storage benches at the Lakewood 400 flea market and they had 6 old captains chairs in their attic.  Soon to be painted.

And before of the other end.....

Cleared out

Using a few leftover things to see what we still ceiling fans also....much sleeker

The coffee table and end table were previously in the family room
Pillows from Pier One and HomeGoods.

The rug from Target's new outdoor collection.

Used the extra captains chairs here....and reused the bench that was already there.

I'm thinking of using the gray color we painted the pie safe......on the chairs

This area in the middle of the room......

My plan all along was to put the vintage iron cot here.

Which I had painted white.

Still need to find a mattress that fits!  The old one was a little "too vintage" for me....ha ha.

I can see taking a heck of a nap here right?

We will explore the family room on Tuesday!

Have a great weekend.....
