Doors

Saturday, January 28, 2012

There's nothing I love more than Grahm. And crafting. Put the two together, and I'm a happy duckling (not the ugly, unhappy one... her pretty, optimistic sister).

Today has been project day in the Roach household.
We finally got our couch (after two weeks of waiting for the dang thing to come in). And because we're so frugal broke, we skipped the $150 delivery fee and brought our new addition home with us all by our elfinwhiches. This was easier said than done.

It was come and go there as to whether or not we were gonna be able to get the new beauty inside. (I kept yelling at Grahm, "Pivooooot!" like Ross did at Rachel in that classic Friends episode. He wasn't too amused.) Somehow we succeeded. I proved to Grahm that I'm strong and capable of carrying lots of weight (not a good indicator for extra midlife poundage), and now we have a comfy place to plop our buns at the end of the day.

Today we went to Habitat Home Center, which is my new favorite store (I still love you, Hobby Lobby). We bought five doors. It was such a fun hunt. There were hundreds to choose from.



I've got the ideas (pinterest), Grahm has the know how, and Papa Roach has the tools to make it all happen! We're the perfect crafting team. Can't wait to show you what we're up to with these doors, which were all a whoppin' five dollars each!

You know you're getting older and growing up when Home Depot and door shops suddenly become fun. :)

I can't wait to see the reveal. That store looks awesome, like a thrift store home depot. I would have picked up the couch too. $150? No thanks.
