miserable. since i can't get out of bed and missed the last week of work, things are really a mess. I did manage to do some online shopping (I think I was semi-conscious at the time because I was surprised when this showed up in the mail):

wallpaper samples from Pip. I love everything about Pip.

I want wallpaper in the little laundry alcove in the beach house.

the sliding doors over the laundry will be like this (without the chalkboard and probably bright cherry red):

and then I want that back wall to be one of these papers. I ordered three samples but I might order 10 more. After being on their website for an hour I have denounced all American wallpaper. It all sucks.

Back to blowing my nose. Hope none of you got this sinus virus from hell. :(

  1. That wallpaper looks amazing! Feel better Katy!

  2. Oh no, so sorry to hear about the sickness. But I do love seeing all the bright and fun inspiration for the beach house - even in the laundry alcove! Red doors sound so fun and I must check out that Pip site, thank you.

  3. hi sorry you are sick.. your plan looks great and I love these door . get well.

  4. Can completely sympathize, I've got the sinus thing today on our snow day home. Been fighting it for a week but today it kicked my tail to the drs office for prescriptions.

About Me

My photo
For many years I was a mechanical engineer and a single mom of 3. Suddenly I am now a married mom of 4 and I'm working full time on remodeling my latest gigantic project (lake house). I previously built a tiny house on Tybee Island that I sold in 2015, and I'm always designing and building the unexpected. Stop by for the house stuff, stay for the panic attacks. (kidding. maybe. ha. ha....)
