Check out the centerpiece that is gracing our dining table this morning..... 

Freshly painted baseboards by the Mr. over the weekend.

And they will probably be there all week.

And there's about a magillion more.

Our home has not had baseboards for about 3 years. We ripped the suckers off as soon as we started painting one room at a time until the entire house was baseboardless (yes, that's a word I just made up).

They're nothing fancy. Super cheap. Not even real wood. But they are nice and wide and that's all I wanted. Plus, add to the fact that we are amateurs at EVERYTHING. So we are going for simple lines to make installation a bit easier.


And just for fun, I'm LOVING these new shoes I got over the weekend!

In order to relate this to the's also been 3 years since I've had a new pair of running shoes. So in celebration of getting new baseboards I got some new kicks as well.

How's that for wrapping up a post??


  1. Did you get them at Gazelle's side walk sales?? I snagged a pair this weekend as well :)

  2. Why yes I did Staci! Glad you found a pair as well. Nothing beats a pair of brand-spankin'-new running shoes to get you motivated to workout eh? :)

  3. Let me know when you are back in CA...I have a few baseboards you can finish for us! :-)


I absolutely love hearing from you! Each and every comment fuels my passion for blogging. So, do tell...
